After a sloppy 28-23 victory over Cleveland in Week 1, the Wildcats showed a lot more polish against the struggling St. Louis defense, getting over 200 yards on the ground and through the air in a 44-20 victory, improving to 2-0 on the young season.
Dion Hawkins, who struggled to get anything going against the Stallions, got 31 touches and 223 rushing yards, carrying Chicago to the end zone three times. Quarterback ET King was much more efficient in his second try too, completing 15-of-20 passes for 232 yards, a couple of touchdown passes and just one interception. Kanye Rockafella and A.J. Barnes each reached the 20 interception milestone. For St. Louis, the offense improved, led by running back Evan Muir’s 150 yards and a score.
Chicago heads to Tallahassee, to face a Pride team coming off a short week – the return of King and Barnes to where their careers started. St. Louis (0-2) gets a home game, but with the Eastern Conference’s top team through two weeks, the Atlanta Swarm (2-0).
