The Alliance of American Football is here to provide more football while the NFL season is over. The NFL Network has agreed to broadcast 19 games throughout the entire season, while CBS will air one AAF game per week.

"That was a great atmosphere", said the league's other co-founder, longtime NFL executive Bill Polian.

But you have to start somewhere, and the start for the AAF is a clear win.

The matchup features a Stallions team with former National Football League players such as running back's Branden Oliver and Matt Asiata.

And I think it's flawless timing. "And I am not hung up on what happens or doesn't happen", she said. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

Twitter was happy to take aim at the former second-round National Football League draft pick as he floundered in the AAF. Here's how the three-phase player allocation process works in the AAF.

The only thing that will be consistent is the locations of these new teams. Heading the Utah contingency on the Stallions is Matt Asiata, who spent four years with the Minnesota Vikings, before a short stint with the Detroit Lions ended his National Football League career. Salesi Uhatafe, Tenny Palepoi, Keith McGill, Sealver Siliga, Gionni Paul, Anthony Denham, Kendal Thompson and Kaelin Clay round out the Stallions who have called Rice Eccles Stadium their home before. We'll see if the Arizona Hotshots and the Salt Lake Stallions can continue that on Sunday as they wrap up the first week of action in The Alliance. Social media reaction to the games - San Diego Fleet vs. San Antonio Commanders, Atlanta Legends vs. Orlando Apollos - was mostly positive. This game is up against some stiff competition on the TV schedule it's all hands on deck for football fans.
