Even without Pete Bruschi, Oklahoma City has hit their stride. Quarterback Joseph Redfeather threw just three incompletions – and has just eight incompletions through the first two weeks – helping the Renegades to their first 2-0 start in franchise history with a 31-7 rout over Vancouver.
Bruschi left the game on the first series and just when Vancouver had an opportunity to take advantage, Legion running back Ivan Sanchez also existed with injury and did not return. Without Sanchez, Vancouver was not nearly as effective in the passing game as OKC. Tom Pepper completed just 50 percent of his passes (21-of-42) and the Legion converted just 3 out of 13 third down attempts. OKC free safety Billy Joe Casper forced two fumbles and deflected four passes, helping linebacker Cole Irvine snag his second interception of his career.
The Renegades will hit the road for the first time this season against desperate rival Dallas (0-2) who will try to avoid ending a three-game home stretch winless. Vancouver (0-2) will finally get to play in the comforts of home when they host their closest geographical opponent, Alaska (1-1).
