The NY Guardians take on the undefeated Houston Roughnecks Saturday at 2 pm in MetLife Stadium. MetLife Stadium is just outside of New York City in New Jersey. With this being the third XFL city to ban large gatherings, will the XFL play in front of an empty stadium or cancel the games outright.
The NY Guardians final home game is Saturday, April 4th, at 2 pm ET against the DC Defenders.
