Former Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is having a career revival of a lifetime — just not in the National Football League.

For the second straight week, the Alabama product led the XFL’s St. Louis Battlehawks to an impressive road comeback win, this time over the Seattle Sea Dragons.

Ben DiNucci gave his team the lead with just under 1:30 left to play, but they couldn’t convert on a three-point conversion.

That was enough for McCarron’s team to march down the field and connect on a field goal to take their record to 2-0, and the former NFL QB was right on the money on that final drive.

XFL games have been coming down to the wire.

AJ McCarron has been responsible for 2 game winning drives that set them up in scoring position with the opportunity to win.

McCarron completed 22 of 36 passes for 184 yards, one score, and one pick, taking his season tally to three touchdowns and just one interception.

He’s now living the dream after a stint in the National Football League, where he served mostly as Andy Dalton’s backup, also struggling to stay on the field due to multiple injuries.

The former All-American QB spent time with five different teams, joining the Buffalo Bills, Oakland (now Las Vegas) Raiders, Houston Texans, and Atlanta Falcons since leaving the Bengals.

He failed to live up to the hype that came with him out of college, as he was a bit of a superstar for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

In three years as a starter, AJ led them to two national championships, throwing for over 9,000 yards with 77 scores and 15 picks.

Now, he’s finally thriving again, even if it’s not on the biggest football stage there is.
