Wildcats inactives include two key offensive pieces: WR Nelson Spruce and RB Martez Carter (hip).

The Guardians will be without starting quarterback Matt McGloin (thorax) and will roll with Luis Perez -- originally assigned to the Wildcats on XFL Draft day -- under center to start things off.

The Guardians hold off a late rally from Los Angeles to pull even at 2-2. The Wildcats dip to 1-3.

The Wildcats get another sensational catch, this time from Tre McBride, who made sure the refs and review folks know he did, in fact, snag it.

However, Nick Novak missed a 44-yard field goal that would've capped the drive. New York still leading 17-14.

4th QTR: Settling for 3
