He returned in a bigger role the next year and posted career highs with 88 carries, 334 yards and four touchdowns.

Week 1 of the Alliance of American Football is in the books and for the most part the reviews were positive. Although none of the four games were particularly competitive—all four games finished with at least a two-score margin—the new rules, acceptable level of play and innovations during the broadcast were enough to keep intrigue throughout the weekend.Ratings were relatively good for the AAF in Week 1, but the future of the league depends on its longevity. They will need people to not just be intrigued by the new rules but interested in the teams and players long-term. Curiosity has to turn into legitimate passion. So today’s Question of the Day is:Will you continue to watch the AAF next week?My answer: For sure.

Once some of the better players in the league emerge and some of the teams’ personalities come out, there will be neat storylines and narratives to follow.Combine that with the improvements made to the game (lasts only 2.5 hours Marvin Jones Jr Jersey White
