Both the Defenders and Renegades have started the season slower than anticipated. The Defenders are evened up at 1-1 and the Renegades are winless at 0-2, so this showdown represents a big opportunity for both sides to get back on the right track.

There’ll be several former NCAA and NFL stars taking part in the action. On the Arlington side, you might recognize former NFL sack leader Vic Beasley and former Pro Bowl punter Marquette King. The Defenders feature several tenured NFL vets as well, including names like Keke Coutee, Gareon Conley, and D.J. Swearinger.

Each team features one of the more prominent signal-callers in recent spring football history as well. Arlington’s Luis Perez was MVP of the XFL’s championship game a season ago. His quarterbacking adversary this weekend, D.C.’s Jordan Ta’amu, took home XFL Offensive Player of the Year honors last year. Both starred in the similarly defunct USFL the year before.

While Perez is performing better than Ta’amu so far, both offenses have struggled to maintain momentum this year. The Defenders’ offensive playmakers have a different makeup, which hasn’t proved as potent as last year’s season leaders. Can D.C. take advantage of a Renegades team struggling even more?
