AJ McCarron continues the St. Louis Battlehawks’ winning ways in the XFL.
McCarron paced the team to its fifth victory of the season Sunday against the Houston Roughnecks. He completed 26 of 34 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns in the Battlehawks’ 24-15 win.
The former Alabama quarterback got the Battlehawks on the board early with a touchdown pass to Gary Jennings.
