AAF draws strong ratings in debut

AAF draws strong ratings in debut

If that's how Hackenberg throws a ball these days, then he's never getting back to the NFL.

The Jets selected Hackenberg out of Penn State in the second round of the 2016 draft.

For the inaugural game, the Alliance of American Football averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. Those 8 AAF teams are: Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, San Diego Fleet.

I don't think I've ever thrown the football this good. Now it's just about going out and playing. So, who are the notable players on the rosters, who are the teams and what does the schedule look like?

Maryland Weather: Winter Mix, Snow Arriving Late Sunday Night
Clouds will be moving into our area Sunday evening eventually giving way to a winter snow/rain mix around midnight. The daytime high should reach 32 degrees before temperatures drop 4 degrees at night, the weather service said .

Hackenberg's stats were pretty brutal, completing 10 of 23 passes for 87 yards and one interception. The third quarterback on the roster for Memphis head coach Mike Singletary is Zach Mettenberger, the LSU product with 10 regular season National Football League starts on his resume.

The debut of the AAF delivered a 2.1 overnight rating on CBS Saturday night, the highest for a non-NFL pro football game since a 2004 Arena Football League telecast on NBC (2.5).

Rahim Moore is starting at free safety for Arizona and Steven Johnson is a starting inside linebacker for the Hotshots.
