Head-to-Head: Generals vs Stars
Last week, the New Jersey Generals came within striking distance of beating the only remaining undefeated team in the USFL – the New Orleans Breakers – but ultimately lost 20-17. They held the Breakers’ league-best offense to only 5.1 yards per play and two touchdowns over five red zone visits, but struggled mightily on offense. Regardless, the Generals remain atop the north division at 2-2.
The Philadelphia Stars, on the other hand, find themselves at the bottom of the USFL pecking order after being dealt a 41-16 loss by the Houston Gamblers last week. They’ve lost their last three games, scoring only 39 points between them while giving up 86.
Case Cookus ranks second among quarterbacks in passing yards with 922 through three games, but to say the Stars’ run game hasn’t been productive would be an understatement.
The most lopsided matchup in this game figures to involve the Generals’ run game – Darius Victor has racked up 290 yards on only 41 carries, and De’Andre Johnson isn’t far behind with 193 yards on 25 rushing attempts. The Generals average a league-high 169.3 rushing yards per game, while the Stars have allowed a staggering 148.8 yards on the ground per game.
Philadelphia has lost three in a row, and most experts predict they’ll boost their streak to four on Sunday. The Stars have little going for them, least of all run defense, and the Generals are well-configured to take over the game by controlling time of possession.
