FINAL: Houston Roughnecks 32, Seattle Dragons 23
4th Qtr: Gates Closed
DeMarquis Gates did it again. He snagged a late takeaway that could end in a Houston victory for the second straight week.
He recovered a fumble to give Houston the rock back with about two minutes left.
4th Qtr: Nine Times
Cam Phillips sits down in the zone and barrels in for his ninth touchdown grab of the season.
Feasting on that two-deep zone.
32-23 Houston with 3:28 left in regulation -- but a nine-point touchdown is in play in the XFL, so Seattle has one last shot to tie.
3rd Qtr: Went Up & Got It
Jordan Martin stretched over Sam Mobley to snag a 50-50 pass and force the third turnover by Houston on the day.
Spectacular effort as Seattle looks to hold its lead, which stands at 23-20.
That score holds as the third quarter ends.
3rd Qtr: Hard Cam, & Butler Did It
Immediate response: Cam Phillips hauls in a 48-yard pass from P.J. Walker.
Then, James Butler visits the crowd again, punching in an eight-yard touchdown run.
3rd Qtr: B.J. Barrels it in
The takeaway pays: B.J. Daniels carries the rock in for his second TD run of the day.
A failed two-point conversion later, it's 23-14 Dragons, who are looking to pull off an upset on the road.
3rd Qtr: P.J. Picked
The Dragons nab a big interception on P.J. Walker by cornerback Marko Myers, who barely misses a touchdown after being tackled ... by Walker.
3rd Qtr: Nudged ahead early
Seattle finishes a nearly five-minute, half-opening drive with a 47-yard field goal from Ernesto Lacayo.
Seattle retakes the lead 17-14.
2nd Qtr: Slick scoring drive
James Butler caps a 90-yard drive with a gorgeous cutback run. It was ruled a touchdown initially, but replay overturned it.
When Houston gave him the inside handoff for a 1-yard score on the next play, he repeated his leap into the stands.
Nick Holley goes across the middle to convert the tying two-point conversion.
14-14 at halftime as the quarter eventually wound down.
2nd Qtr: Holley undresses secondary
This Nick Holley 50-yard catch-and-run into the end zone ... watch this juke as he scores for the second straight week.
Despite missing the unsuccessful three-point try, Houston is clawing back into this one down 14-6.
Don't miss the soul-crushing block from teammate Cam Phillips:
Williams was able to plant a touchdown in his hometown -- and even threw in a reference to the Brahma Bull, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
2nd Qtr: Brissett supports Walker
Ex-Colts teammate Jacoby Brissett is in the house to root for Walker.
2nd Qtr: Walker is a passer
P.J. Walker has become the first 1,000-yard passer in XFL history:
1st Qtr: Daniels scampers in
B.J. Daniels cashes in when head coach Jim Zorn goes for it on fourth and goal, crossing the end zone on a designed QB run from one yard out.
Daniels continues to spark Seattle's offense; he's already accounted for 60 aerial yards and 17 on the ground.
After a failed two-point conversion, it's 6-0 Dragons.
1st Qtr: Rough go for Roughnecks
Houston had a rough first two drives, the second ending with a fumble recovery by Jacquies Smith. It's the first lost fumble of the season for the Roughnecks.
