The Seattle Dragons have made a quarterback change, and it is bringing dividends already.

The former USF Bull and Seattle Seahawk has made some fantastic plays with both his arm and his feet for the Dragons, as on his first two drives he’s gone 4/5 for 80 yards and a TD passing, with five carries for 68 yards as well.

Seattle head coach Jim Zorn might have waited too long to pull the trigger here, but it seems the Dragons are finally getting the spark they need to get their 1-2 season back on track. And all from a hometown favorite of Seattle fans like ESPN’s Mina Kimes.

It looks like the bettors believe as well, with the Dragons trailing 23-16 for now, but are only 6.5 underdogs on in-game betting at DraftKings Sportsbook as they take over with 8:06 remaining and Daniels under center.
