Saturday, August 21
@Hershey 21, New York 7
Joe Flacco (26-35-280-2-2) and the Hershey Bars (2‑0) statistically
dominated this turnover-filled contest but couldn't put away the Empires (1‑1)
until Greg Jennings scored inside the 2-minute mark. Fred Jackson ran for 99 yards
on an astounding 35 carries.
@Albany 24, Providence 17
The Steam Roller (0‑2) gave up a 10-point 2nd quarter lead
and suffered a road defeat to the Racers (1‑1). Special teams helped turn the
tide for Albany as Josh Brown missed 2 field goal attempts and rookie Domenik
Hixon took a punt 92 yards to the house.
@Baltimore 19, Richmond 14
Five takeaways helped the Bolts (2‑0) turn back the Rebels (0‑2).
Vincent Jackson had 7 catches for 101 yards. Kevin Kolb (16-24-182) was effective
in relief of Donovan McNabb after the starter went down and missed the last
25 minutes of the first half.
Washington 31, @Charleston 10
Terrell Thomas intercepted an Eli Manning pass on the last play
of the first half and returned it 91 yards for a touchdown to put the Capitols (1‑1)
ahead to stay. Manning was awful for the Cannons (0‑2), completing just 12 of 36
passes for 117 yards.

Syracuse 31, @Connecticut 25
LaRon Landry returned an interception and DeSean Jackson returned a punt
for touchdowns 2 minutes apart, helping to stake the Crush (2‑0) to
a 28‑0 lead. A comeback by the Comets (0‑2) sparked by Willis McGahee (7‑134, 1‑11)
ultimately fell short.
