I will be pissed if @XFLRenegades QB Luis Perez would not get a real shot to be at the very least a QB2 on a NFL roster.

Dude’s been a baller in each spring league he is been in. Displaying it within the #XFLChampionship.

The win offers the Renegades a 6-6 file on the season and provides one other piece of {hardware} to go coach Bob Stoops’ legendary cupboard.

The Defenders end the season with a 10-2 file, being the one workforce within the league to file double-digit wins this season.
