San Diego Fleet Quarterback Mike Bercovici Suffers Brutal Hit During AAF Opener

Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night

The Alliance of American Football's debut on Saturday night was not without its highlights.

The Atlanta Legends and the San Diego Fleet will cap off Week 2 of the AAF season in primetime Sunday night on NFL Network. There were several intriguing factors about the AAF such as former National Football League front office members and players like Bill Polian, Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu, who are key members in the creation and operation of the league.

Although the AAF plans to serve as a complementary league to the NFL, the Alliance plans to change areas of the NFL's policy where the fan engagement is low or that they feel are unsafe.

Kickoffs have been completely taken out of the game and scrimmage will start from each team's own 25-yard line.

First and for most, the production quality of this game was really good. The play clock will only run 35 seconds, five seconds shorter than the NFL. According to No Extra Points, Marshall had three receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown.

The AAF even has the Head Ball Coach himself, Steve Spurrier, who is coaching the Apollos. The game was vintage Spurrier, with a mic catching him delivering the play call to the quarterback with the conclusion: "Tell him to catch it this time". Sports TV Ratings said the first game on CBS ‏averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The AAF has already found multiple broadcast partners for the 2019 season. Fans like high-scoring and close games, and neither of the first two AAF games were that. The CBS broadcast out-rated ABC's Saturday night broadcast of the Rockets vs. Thunder. Fanball is one of the few sites offering AAF DFS games.

Both home teams won the two premiere games on Saturday night, with the Orlando Apollos beating the Atlanta Legends 40-6 and the San Antonio Commanders beating the San Diego Fleet 15-6. The closest team in the AAF is the Memphis Express, which features former Colts players including defensive back Charles James, defensive end Anthony Johnson and wide receiver Kayaune Ross. Sunday will now feature two more games worth of action in the new pro football league, and the nightcap of the festivities will feature the Salt Lake Stallions traveling to face the Arizona Hotshots in Western Conference action.
