The XFL’s Week 5 Saturday nightcap had a quiet first half and start to the third quarter, but that was quickly forgotten in the second half.
The New York Guardians (3-2) scored 21 straight points after the break to win 30-12 at the Dallas Renegades (2-3).
A Marquise Williams two-yard run, a Colby Pearson 80-yard catch-and-run, and a Ryan Mueller 33-yard interception return all gave New York touchdowns to help them dominate at Globe Life Park.
Dallas struggled to generate big plays on offense with Landry Jones (knee) inactive. Philip Nelson didn’t throw a touchdown pass and was intercepted twice.
The Guardians dominated on the ground, outgaining Dallas 144-56. Darius Victor led the way with 58 yards on 16 carries.
