Houston Roughnecks vs. Tampa Bay Vipers: Open Thread

XFL: Los Angeles Wildcats at Houston Roughnecks Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The third week of the XFL will kick off with a matchup between the 2-0 Houston Roughnecks and the 0-2 Tampa Bay Vipers.

The Vipers have really been struggling to score the football, and heading into today's game, they still have not scored a touchdown on offense. Their Week 1 starting quarterback Aaron Murray will miss his second consecutive game with a foot injury. As a result, Quinton Flowers or Taylor Cornelius will take over at quarterback.

Led by quarterback PJ Walker, the Roughnecks are leading the league in total points scored with 65. Wide receiver Cam Phillips is a name to watch. Phillips had a big game last Sunday against the St. Louis Battlehawks with 3 receiving touchdowns.

The game will start at 2 PM ET on ABC.
