Hackenberg showed a lot of the things that made him a failure with the New York Jets, making a lot of bad throws and taking sacks.

If you're itching to watch football and you'd like to see what some former Ravens are up to, you should tune into the new Alliance of American Football (AAF). Those 8 AAF teams are: Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, San Diego Fleet.

Hackenberg finished the game 10-for-23 for 87 yards and an interception, though to be fair he had a nice touchdown pass taken away by a formation penalty.

Hackenberg did provide for several viral moments on social media, at least.

Angel di Maria reveals what went wrong for him at Manchester United
He said: "I only stayed [for] one year". "I want us to play with courage, play as a team, together, tight knit, fight, ready to suffer".

Twitter was happy to take aim at the former second-round National Football League draft pick as he floundered in the AAF. He was pulled with four minutes left in the game for backup Brandon Silvers.

I know this ended up being called back after everything was said and done, however, this was a fantastic throw by Christian Hackenberg on the trick play.

Rahim Moore is starting at free safety for Arizona and Steven Johnson is a starting inside linebacker for the Hotshots.

Both games start at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night and will air regionally on CBS.
