Starting February 8, 2020 the XFL football season will kick off.
Eight teams will play a 10-week regular season and a two-week postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game on April 26.
The season lasts just 79 days and will be a non-stop sprint from the first kick to the last down.
With these 5 Gameplay Innovations, 5 Timing Changes, and 5 Common Sense Rules, they are building on traditional football while preserving its authenticity.
I like some of these rule changes…some I am still questionable on…but excited to see how it works in this first season.

I have decided that my team will be the DC Defenders. They are local(ish) and have some players on the team I watched back in the day either in college or in other leagues. Some of the players I am looking forward to watching on this team include:
- Cardale Jones (QB)
- Rashad Ross (WR)
- Donnel Pumphrey (RB)
- Jhurell Pressley (RB)
