Week 1 for the 2019 Alliance of American Football is finally in the books. Even with an average of nearly 3 million viewers for the first two games on Saturday night, there were two more games today to keep the party going.

First up on CBS Sports Network was the Memphis Express at Birmingham Iron, which ended up as the ugliest game of the weekend. That was followed by a more entertaining shootout between Salt Lake City Stallions and the Arizona Hotshots. Some of the big names today included Iron running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Luis Perez, as well as Hotshots receiver Rashad Ross.

Thanks for staying with CBS Sports all through the afternoon and evening as we gave you the latest and greatest highlights, scores and storylines as they developed.

Scores
Sunday

Birmingham Iron 26, Memphis Express 0
Arizona Hotshots 38, Salt Lake City Stallions 22

Trent Richardson overcomes slow start with two TDs
This was supposed to be Richardson's comeback, but the former Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts running back got off to a slow start with eight carries for 17 yards through the first half. His third quarter wasn't looking any better with a lost fumble on one of his better runs of the day. However, Richardson finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter to put the Iron up 15-0 and scored the ensuing two-point conversion. He also had a late-game touchdown, his second of the day, to finish with 56 yards in a 26-0 victory.

It's been an overall tough day for Richardson as he tries to make his way back to the NFL -- his yards per carry was still under 3.0 -- but at least it ended better than it started.

Iron shut down Express with strong defensive effort
Similar to Saturday night's defensive struggle between San Antonio and San Diego, Memphis-Birmingham was a rock fight for about three quarters The Iron lead 9-0, but were absolutely stout on defense. One of the best plays of the day came on a tip-drill interception of Express quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who has struggled to find any consistency in his career following his breakout freshman season at Penn State.

Today's uni combo for Memphis-Birmingham: Icy White vs. Black
The AAF has some flashy uniforms, but there's a more classic look going on for Memphis and Birmingham. The Express will play in their Icy White uniforms while the Iron will, not surprisingly, sport their sharp black unis. It may not be the loudest look, but there's something to be said for the more subtle look that will be on display at Legion Field on Sunday.
