USFL Week 5 results, updates: Pittsburgh Maulers seek first win as they face Houston Gamblers
The USFL regular season will be half over after this weekend and we’re starting to see who could be a legitimate threat to win the title in the resurgent league’s first year.
On Friday night, the preseason favorites Tampa Bay Bandits jumped above .500 with a win over the Michigan Panthers. On Saturday, two of the league’s best quarterbacks, New Jersey’s De’Andre Johnson and New Orleans’ Kyle Sloter, were on display. Johnson’s two first-half touchdowns and 252 all-purpose yards gave the Generals their fourth straight win.
In the first of a doubleheader on Sunday, the Stallions went perfect on the season after rallying to defeat Philadelphia. Birmingham quarterback J’Mar Smith was surgical, completing 77.3% of his passes while the defense ruled out the Stars for the entire second half. Capping off this week’s action, the Pittsburgh Maulers will be looking for their first win of the year when they take on the Houston Gamblers (4 p.m. ET on FOX, stream for free on fuboTV).
