AAF Week 1 scores, highlights: Hotshots, stallions in shootout; Trent Richardson scores two TD's in the Iron win



Week 1 to 2019 The Alliance of American Football season is not over yet. Although on average nearly 3 million viewers set out to watch the first two games on Saturday night, there are two games today to keep the party going.

First up on the CBS Sports Network is the Memphis Express at Birmingham Iron at 4 p.m. ONE. It is followed by Salt Lake City Stallions at Arizona Hotshots at. 8 on the NFL Network. Some of the names of print for today include Iron Races back Trent Richardson, Express quarterback Christian Hackenberg and Hotshots coach Rick Neuheisel. While the first round of AAF games was all kind of fun, we haven't seen any overtime yet. Will we get one on Sunday?

Arizona and Salt Lake in a fun shootout [19659011] Scoring has been at a premium for most teams over the weekend, which is not all the unexpected. However, Hotshots and Stallions are engaging in what seems to be some good olde-shaped #AAFterDark. Arizona first came to the table with a light pitch and caught from quarterback John Wolford to close end Gerald Christian. Then the stallion settled with a touchdown from driving back Matt Asiata to make it 8-8. But after a muffed punt at Salt Lake, Hotshots capitalized again to make it 16-8 thanks to this beautiful Wolford ball pass. With Salt Lake adding a late touchdown before half to make it 19-16, this game is kind of fun.

Trent Richardson overcomes slow start with two TDs

This was supposed to be Richardson's comeback, but the former Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts drove back going on with a slow start with eight carrying 17 yards through the first half. His third quarter didn't look better with a lost fumble on one of his better runs of the day. However, Richardson finally found the final zone in the fourth quarter to put Iron up 15-0 and scored the subsequent highscore conversion. He also had a late-game touchdown, his second of the day, to finish with 56 yards in a 26-0 win.

It has been a total tough day for Richardson as he tries to get back to the NFL shipyard. Carrying was still below 3.0 – but at least it ended up better than it started.

Iron defensive down strong defensive action

Like Saturday's defensive match between San Antonio and San Diego, Memphis-Birmingham was a rock fight in about three-quarters. The iron led 9-0, but was totally under defense. One of today's best games came on a tip-off move by Express quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who has struggled to find any relationship in his career after his breakout freshman season at Penn State.

Today's Unique Combo to Memphis-Birmingham: Icy White vs. Black

AAF has some flashy uniforms, but there's a more classic look going on for Memphis and Birmingham. The Express will play in their Icy White uniforms, while the iron will not surprisingly grow their sharp black uni. It may not be the highest look, but there is something to say for the more subtle look that will be shown at Legion Field on Sunday.
