  • Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night

In the league's other opener Saturday night, San Antonio topped San Diego 15-6.

It was a long night for Atlanta, which took the field barely a month after the sudden departure of coach Brad Childress and just days after the team decided ex-NFL quarterback Michael Vick would no longer hold the title of Legends offensive coordinator. "They saw enough good plays, especially after the first quarter".

Only time will tell if the league will stick around or work well over time. But based on his AAF debut, Hackenberg may be at the end of the road. Sports TV Ratings said the first game on CBS ‏averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The 28-year-old never found his footing in the National Football League, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, including just 3.1 yards per carry with the Colts.

The AAF is a brand new eight-team league which will not only showcase local and developing talent, but it will complement the NFL during the offseason.

USA measles outbreak could be prevented
As of 2000, measles was declared eliminated in the United States or no longer constantly present, though spot outbreaks occur. As many as 1 out of every 20 children with measles will get pneumonia, which can also be deadly, the agency reports.

Things get tricky here, because the AAF and National Football League do not play at the same time, which means that National Football League talent can play in the AAF during the offseason, which is exactly what Johnson intends to do. A ninth member of the officiating crew, a "SkyJudge," will sit in the press box and "use real-time technology to correct clear errors involving player safety anytime during a game, and pass interference inside of five minutes left in the fourth quarter", the AP reported.

He then capped it off by scoring on the 2-point conversion. They have to score a touchdown and go for two.

Kickoffs have been completely taken out of the game and scrimmage will start from each team's own 25-yard line.

One of the brilliant things that the AAF has done in trying to make the league get off the ground with a solid following is their allocation of players to teams.

However, for those die-hard fans that simply need to watch the gridiron during the weekend, the Alliance of American Football is kicking off this weekend on Saturday night.
