XFL, Week 8: Seattle Sea Dragons vs. DC Defenders game thread

It’s the biggest game in Sea Dragons franchise history. Six wins in a row on the horizon?

XFL games don’t get much bigger than this.

The Seattle Sea Dragons (5-2) have won five straight since dropping their first two games in dramatic fashion. One of those losses was to the DC Defenders (6-1), who hung on for a Week 1 victory when Sea Dragons quarterback Ben DiNucci fumbled the ball on a botched running play at the 1-yard line.

It’s time to even the score and move one step closer to a playoff spot! The Defenders suffered a shocking loss to the previously winless Orlando Guardians last weekend, so Seattle can pull even in the standings if they beat DC on a rainy Easter Sunday at Lumen Field. They would still not hold a tiebreaker on DC in the event they do win, but if they beat the Defenders today and then the St. Louis Battlehawks the following week they would be positioned for a playoff spot entering their regular season finale.
