Running Back Eddie George earned every inch of the gridiron in Coach Kevin Maloney's 10-3 Tennessee Titan victory over rookie Coach Levi Vick in Week #2!

August 12, 2020, Nashville, Tennessee.  The Long Island Electric Football League payout is big this season. In June coaches paid a league fee of $150, and at the end of the year the $150 league fee goes into a pool for December's Granddaddy of them all, with the Long Island Electric Football Super Bowl XVI winner taking $750 and the trophy, and the loser of the Super Bowl earns $350 with the AFC and NFC Championship Game loser earning $50 each! Next year for our 50th Anniversary celebration, two-time USA World Swimmer Greg Jagenberg, will sponsor and donate the $750 for LIEFL's Super Bowl XVII winner.  $1500 dollars is a huge payday! Also, the league announced that fierce competitor Joe "Bino" Cerabino will be the alternate coach, which means that when a coach has a team that has to compete against one of his own teams, instead, Bino will fill that role. So if two of your four teams are playing each other, Bino plays with one of the teams.  He has much experience! The dream of the league is to have 32 fully committed coaches!

Even though it is early in the season for the Long Island Electric Football, it is never too early to follow important rival match-ups that become meaningful in the last few weeks of the four-month season. The Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1), lost to the Indianapolis Colts (1-0) in Week #1, which makes for a tough mountain to climb when losing at home in this league, but rookie Coach Levi Vick, who has experience from another league says his Jags are going to win any way they can. Vick moved to New York from Tuscon, Arizona last year where he won his 12-man EFL Championship against mostly passing coaches. He is coaching the Cowboys, Patriots, Texans and these Jaguars in the LIEFL. "I heard about this league through Coach Pizz and I waited about a year to get in when another coach unfortunately became sick with COVID-19, so he had to opt out. This is a bittersweet exciting opportunity that I could fill the vacant slot. This league might expand to 10-coaches next year, and that would mean I could play permanently with the league and what I really love about it is these guys are really committed to the hobby. I am just learning the teams and the coaches, but I know the game, and my teams will be ready," said Vick.

Vick is facing the loudest coach in the LIEFL, Kevin Maloney with his Tennessee Titans (0-1), who lost in a brawl to Denver in Week #1 24-21. Maloney is always ready for electric football showdown, it's a huge hobby for him. He is never at a loss for words either when it comes to the other coaches in this league. The league has a "Push it forward" attitude. The losing team has to do the write-ups and then the Commissioner, Professor Billy O'C posts on the Tudor website. "We love it," said Maloney.  Maloney continued, "I don't know Levi well, but he will know my Titans today because not only are we in the same division, but he cannot stop my passing game, and just like his Texans lost last week to the Chiefs, this game with his Jaguars will be a repeat of that Chiefs game. Just because we lost last week doesn't mean we lose as a habit and in this league when you don't bring your A-Game, someone else will. It is really a great league, flexible and well organized with established guys, strict rules, fines, stats and top coaches with proven track records. For two-hours a week, it's the greatest downtime I have during the week. I like to pass so I don't think anyone in this can pass like I do." Maloney also plays in a New York City league where his Titans won their Super Bowl. Speaking of passing, Maloney's Titans and Enron Kinney played like a Super Bowl MVP busting out with 268 yards and  three touchdowns in the Titans, 24-21 loss to Denver!

Titan specialist and last week's play-maker against the Broncos, Enron Kinney, opened the game with a 48 yards kickoff return. Tennessee running back Eddie George on his first run, ran for 12 yards and the first down to the Jacksonville Jaguar 40-yard line. Two plays later the Jaguars defense came alive and defied the Kevin Maloney's Titans for a 16-yard loss on second down. And on second down, not to be outplayed, George earned all those lost yards back with a first down to the Jacksonville 30, with Moloney's Titans banging on the door in a fierce battle.

After three straight first downs by George totaling 32 yards the Jacksonville defense made more adjustments, pushing George back to the 18-yard line for an 8-yard loss. Then Rob Meier, tackle for the Jaguars, made a sensational tackle at the 2-yard line on George forcing Tennessee to pass the ball after being stopped on third down. One play later Ryan Tannenhill had a 5-yard toss to the reliable Lorenzo Neal as he went into the end-zone giving Tennessee the lead 7-0, as the first half came to a close.
 
Jacksonville's Fred Taylor is off to a slow start this season with the league improving, Coach Vick missed the Draft being a rookie coach, but he is working with what he has. Taylor had a very hard time running the ball against this tough Titan defense. But on third down for Jacksonville, Coach Vick gave Kevin Maloney's Titans a taste of their own medicine with a beautiful 19-yard pass to receiver Allen Hurns, but they fell just short of the first down at the Titan 35-yard line with one yard to go for the 1st. And on fourth Taylor came up big with a first down for the Jaguars with 8:30 left to go in the game. It would be the only rushing yard in the game for Taylor and the Jacksonville offense which total just 20 yards against the experienced Kevin Maloney and the Titans. And after two more failed runs with Taylor getting pushed back the Jaguars could not complete a pass on third down forcing a major 4th down decision for the Jaguars as they settled for a field-goal from 40 yards away with 3:36 left to go in the game 7-3, Titans in the lead!
 
On the kickoff Tennessee's Brandon Jones took the ball back 60-yards with 2:08 remaining in the game. Two plays later, the Tennessee Titans (1-1), ran the clock down to kick a field-goal and win the game, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2), 10-3. This low-scoring match-up set the tone for the division. Tennessee's Eddie George had 51 yards rushing in this low-scoring duel and a decent showing on defense for Coach Levi Vick. Coack Vick's Jaguars travel south to take on the 2019 LIEFL AFC Champion Miami Dolphins (1-0) next week, and the Tennessee Titans travel to Minnesota to play the (0-1) Vikings.
