It looked more like a pass from a young kid than former NFL QB and Penn State star.

The original XFL also had a strongly rated Week 1, but the Alliance of American Football is off to a good start.

He threw an interception with a release that I don't even know how to describe. "Never", Hackenberg said, via John Luciew of PennLive.com.

Quarterbacks are mic'd up in the AAF, but Hackenberg seemed to forget that.

Linebacker Steven Johnson, who spent the entire 2017 season with the Ravens as a veteran special teams player, led the Arizona Hotshots with seven tackles and had an interception.

Memphis is taking on Arizona at 8 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on NFL Network.

Wolford went 18-for-29 with 275 yards and four touchdowns.

Hackenberg was benched late in the contest, as quarterback Brandon Silvers replaced him in the second half of the fourth quarter. 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 AAF is a much higher caliber of play than a lot of people might realize, and Hackenberg clearly isn't ready after week one.
