It's not Christian Hackenberg's fault that the Jets took him in the second round of the 2016 National Football League draft.

Gang Green traded him to the Oakland Raiders in May for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

For the inaugural game, the Alliance of American Football averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Maybe the most important first to achieve outside of a win was a touchdown, and it didn't take the Hotshots long to find the end zone. So it's fun. I thought the league has done a great job so far.

K Nick Folk, still just 34-years-old, drilled 53-yard field goal.

In what can only be considered a kind assessment, CBS Sports Network's halftime tweet of the quarterback comparison suggested Birmingham's defense "put the clamps on Hackenberg and the Express offense". Hackenberg's stats were pretty brutal, completing 10 of 23 passes for 87 yards and one interception. The third quarterback on the roster for Memphis head coach Mike Singletary is Zach Mettenberger, the LSU product with 10 regular season National Football League starts on his resume. The Express offense must sort itself out soon, as they next face the upstart Arizona Hotshots.

The AAF's debut went head-to-head with a primetime matchup between the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Russell Westbrook, and the Houston Rockets, led by James Harden.
