Five games into the season the Dallas Renegades sit at 2-3. The team is led by former Oklahoma Sooner legends with coach Bob Stoops and quarterback Landry Jones.
Starting quarterback Landry Jones missed both the first game and the fifth game due to injury, both losses for the Renegades. Dallas is 2-1 in the three games that the former Oklahoma star has played in. The veteran Jones has been very accurate, completing 70% of his passes so far this season, but has thrown seven interceptions to go along with his five touchdown passes.
In Jones’ absence, the Renegades have turned to Phillip Nelson at QB. Dallas has experienced a pretty significant drop off in offense with Nelson at the helm. In his two starts, the Renegades have only mustered up 21 points with Nelson throwing three interceptions and no touchdown passes. If Jones cannot return from his knee injury soon, the Renegades don’t stand much of a chance at contending.
Dallas pretty much is middle of the pack in terms of total offensive and defensive numbers. The Renegades are in a playoff battle with the 2-3 LA Wildcats at the moment, with neither team really posing a threat to the undefeated Houston Roughnecks for the top spot in the West.
