Gilbert's 26-yard touchdown pass in the first minute of the second quarter to Jalin Marshall not only put Orlando up, 7-3, but it was the first touchdown in AAF history. The league has great talent on all the teams, which are the Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, and the San Diego Fleet. Viewers' curiosity of an indirect National Football League competitor surely helped early ratings; now we'll find out if the AAF can keep those eyeballs and attract more.

"I think the fans had a good time", said Spurrier, who improved to 6-0 in his first game with the six teams he coached.

Polian was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015 after a long career as an NFL executive. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden thought highly of the Penn State passer in his ESPN film room show, but that previous opinion and the quarterback's play wasn't enough to stay on the roster. The teams are fired up and ready to go, as fans across the world wait in anticipation for the ball to hit the kickers foot, and mark the start of the game. Gilbert finished his opening night with a very respectable stat line of 15 of 25 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

But now with the ability to only rush five players, defenses will have to scheme differently and play more conservatively in the secondary.

In stark contrast to the thousands who tailgate in a festive atmosphere before UCF games in the fall, only a smattering of fans mingled in a plaza near the 44,000-seat stadium on a cloudy and windy evening. There will be 10 weeks of games with the season wrapping up in April.

Like Spurrier, Mike Martz and Mike Singletary, Childress was among the first big-name additions to the AAF roster, bringing a plethora of NFL experience to the upstart league. Sports TV Ratings said the first game on CBS ‏averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.
