Saturday, August 14
Baltimore 24, @Providence 3
Donovan McNabb of the Bolts (1‑0) easily bested Ben Roethlisberger of the Steam Roller (0‑1)
in this battle of transplanted signal-callers. McNabb had lots of help from EFL
2009 leading rusher DeAngelo Williams who had 165 yards on 21 carries with a touchdown.
@Hershey 30, Connecticut 23
Joe Flacco's 2nd touchdown pass of the 4th quarter, an 11-yarder
to Fred Jackson with 4:15 to go, capped a rally by the Hershey Bars (1‑0) from a
10-point deficit for a hard-fought win over the Comets (0‑1).
@New York 24, Richmond 10
The Empires (1‑0) shut down the Rebels (0‑1) in the second half and
coasted to victory. Steven Jackson was a workhorse for New York with 144 yards on 21
trips and 5 catches for 30 yards. Richmond turned the ball over 4 times.
Syracuse 31, @Charleston 27
Jonathan Stewart of the Crush (1‑0) and Jamaal Charles of the
Cannons (0‑1) each scored two touchdowns but Stewart had the decider, a 19-yard run
with 13:18 left. Brent Celek contributed 7 catches for 106 yards for Syracuse.
Charleston's cause was hurt by 3 turnovers.

Philadelphia 16, @Albany 14
The Racers (0‑1) overcame a 13-point 1st quarter
deficit, largely on the back of Jason Campbell’s passing (20-29-317-2-1),
but quickly gave the lead back to the Lakers (1‑0).
