The DC Defenders opened the XFL’s inaugural season with the league’s first win by defeating the Seattle Dragons 31-19.  The first game was an overall success for the Defenders.

There were over 17,000 fans in attendance for the Week 1 game and the ticket prices were higher than some Redskins games this season.
