It’s no secret that the NFL is still the top dog in terms of professional football, but the XFL is looking to compete. If you want to attract viewers, you need to bring something new to the table.

We’ll be going over all the ways that the XFL has differentiated itself from the NFL, in terms of rule changes, (don’t worry, we won’t bore you to death).

The XFL will look to compete with the NFL for football talent and viewership from fans.
