The Omaha Nighthawks are a winning football team. They proved that Friday night with a close win against Hartford. It the UFL team's first-ever game, the Nighthawks won 27-26 on a game-winning touchdown with less then 10 seconds to go in the game.
Quarterback Jeff Garcia looked good leading his team for the first time. Running back Ahman Green also preformed well in front of his hometown crowd. Rosenblatt Stadium was packed, a sellout crowd of 24,000 on hand to be part of Omaha's new team.
