XFL Week 1: Studs and duds from Sunday’s action

After a couple of fun games Saturday, XFL Week 1 continued with two more contests on Sunday to close out the debut weekend. The New York Guardians dominated the Tampa Bay Vipers in the early game Sunday, which saw a former Georgia star struggle in a big way. Later in the evening, the St. Louis BattleHawks and Dallas Renegades put on a show that had to make the XFL executives a bit nervous, with the road team grinding out a 15-9 slog of a win. These are the biggest studs and duds from Sunday’s XFL Week 1 action. Stud: Dan Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Vipers Tampa Bay’s offense, on the whole, was an abject disaster. The one standout on an otherwise miserable day was receiver Dan Williams, who came up with a couple of the biggest plays of the game in the fourth quarter. Williams hauled in six of the nine passes that came his way Sunday for the Vipers, racking up 123 yards in the process. Dud: Aaron Murray, QB, Tampa Bay Vipers A former starter at the University of Georgia, Murray never registered any regular-season
