POLL: Which XFL team are you rooting for?

If any.

NFL: New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The XFL is officially underway, and it’s been largely viewed as a success after the first week, especially when compared to the first attempt at the XFL.

Were you one of the 3.3 million viewers of the XFL’s inaugural game? If not, did you watch of the XFL’s opening weekend? Do you have a rooting interest in any team so far?

The XFL is comprised of only eight teams over a ten-week season. Here are the eight teams, with any subtle ties each might have to the Saints:

Dallas Renegades - Saints’ former second round pick, Hau’oli Kikaha is a starting linebacker for the Renegades

Houston Roughnecks - To New Orleans, probably the closest team geographically

Los Angeles Wildcats - Head coach Winston Moss was the linebackers for in New Orleans from 2001-2005

Seattle Dragons - If you were paying attention, this is the team that was going to roster, and then released, Super Bowl champion kicker Garrett Hartley

DC Defenders - Defenders’ receiver Simmie Cobbs was signed off the Washington practice squad by the Saints in December of 2018, only to land on IR one month later

New York Guardians - Joe Horn, Jr., the son of Saints legend, Joe Horn, is a starting wide receiver for the Guardians

St. Louis BattleHawks - Receivers coach Az-Zahir Hakim played for the Saints in 2005, catching 34 passes for 489 yards and two touchdowns

Tampa Bay Vipers - Head coach Marc Trestman was one of Sean Payton’s advisors during the first portion of Payton’s time in New Orleans
