Houston Roughnecks UFL Week 8 Betting

Houston Roughnecks UFL Betting Online

The Houston Roughnecks and their season of misery continued last week with a close loss to the San Antonio Brahmas. The Roughnecks have lost three straight games after earning their lone win of the season. Houston has a respectable defense, but that has been offset by an offense that is one of the worst in the UFL. Quarterback Reid Sinnett has been inconsistent but lacks the support of a reliable ground game and breakaway receivers. Too much of the burden has been placed on Sinnett, and it shows. Houston is lacking in too many categories to be taken seriously as a quality football team. This week will almost certainly be worse when the Roughnecks travel to Birmingham to face the undefeated Birmingham Stallions.

Houston Roughnecks Week 7 Recap

The Houston Roughnecks have a record of 1-6. The Roughnecks are in last place in the UFL USFL Division standings.

The Brahmas would charge down the field early in the football contest–seeking to score the first set of six. Although battling through early defensive struggles, the Roughnecks defense was able to step up to the plate and halt San Antonio’s efforts of scoring with a forced fumble by LB Reuben Foster and recovery by DL Glen Logan at the HOU 4-yard line. The Houston defense would come up big again with a forced fumble by CB Corn Elder and a recovery by SS Donald Rutledge in the red zone. Both teams would take part in consecutive three-and-outs, ending the first quarter without any successful scoring drives.

But even with a slow start, the Brahmas would not go quietly in the last set. With the start of their drive at 12:32, San Antonio would continue to push downfield through a series of defensive penalties by the Roughnecks–resulting in a much-contested 1-yard rushing touchdown up the middle by RB John Lovett. Closing in on Houston’s lead 12-9, San Antonio would tie the game at 12-12 ahead of the two-minute warning with a successful three-point conversion. The final two minutes of the game would come down to a kickoff return fumble by HOU WR Reggie Roberson and a lucrative recovery by SA CB Teez Tabor. The Brahmas would seal a win with a 51-yard field goal as the clock ran down to zero.
