XFL: St. Louis Battlehawks Beat Seattle Dragons 23-16

Jordan Ta’amu and the St. Louis BattleHawks were able to handle the Seattle Dragons, 23-16, for their second consecutive win. Ta’amu was masterful throughout the afternoon, completing 74% of his throws for 264 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for an additional 63 yards.

On the other side of the field, the Dragons found themselves benching starter Brandon Silvers for B.J. Daniels, a move that ended up working in Seattle’s favor. Daniels led the Dragons on two touchdown drives in the second half and was gashing the St. Louis defense with his rushing ability. On top of his 100 yards through the air and a passing touchdown, Daniels rushed for 84 yards on a 12.0 yards per carry average. While he made the case to be Seattle’s starter going forward, he did throw a critical interception late that ultimately swung the game in the BattleHawks favor.
