Christian Hackenberg Underwhelms In AAF Debut

Alliance of American Football Debuts with Strong Ratings		The Associated Press11 Feb 2019

Christian Hackenberg #5 of the New York Jets warms up before the game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on December 31, 2017 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. It did not go well. Those 8 AAF teams are: Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, San Diego Fleet.

Wolford finished the night completing 18 of 29 attempts for 275 yards and scores of 5, 36, 4 and 30 yards with a pair of two-point conversion passing scores sprinkled in.

Hackenberg did provide for several viral moments on social media, at least.

Twitter was happy to take aim at the former second-round National Football League draft pick as he floundered in the AAF.

Silvers checked in for Hackenberg for the final minutes, throwing a pick.

He threw an interception with a release that I don't even know how to describe.

The league's first games, which aired Saturday on CBS, averaged 2.913 million viewers, according to Sports TV Ratings. The odds are against Hackenberg getting a second straight start after such a dismal debut, but it's safe to assume he'll get another chance to play at some point before the inaugural AAF season finishes.
