Head-to-Head: New Orleans at Philadelphia
Last week, New Orleans fell into their first loss of the season by a score of 10-17 at the hands of the Memphis Showboats. League-leading passer McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw for just over 200 yards and a touchdown while surrendering an interception and two fumbles. Still, the Breakers scored at least 20 points in each of their first four games and remain at the top of the league in total yardage – they’re expected to bounce back quickly.
Philadelphia spent Week 5 taking home an unlikely 24-21 victory against the New Jersey Generals, with all 24 of their points coming on field goals from kicker Luis Aguilar. Wins are wins and the Stars broke their three-game losing streak regardless, but it’s hard to imagine the Stars winning many more games in the same manner. They were outgained by a wide margin, accounting for only 2.9 yards per play to the Generals’ 6.7 and failed to score a touchdown across four trips to the red zone. Darius Victor fumbled away three New Jersey possessions; the Stars can’t count on that kind of luck again.
It’s a meeting between a team coming off an uncharacteristically turnover-prone performance and a team coming off an unusually turnover-lucky game. It’s possible that lightning strikes twice and we see another wild upset, but the oddsmakers favor New Orleans for a reason. Despite every break going the Stars’ way in their game last week, they still couldn’t generate enough offense to win the game emphatically.

Experts predict that both teams will regress to their standard performances this season; the Breakers will look like a high-functioning offensive unit while the Stars struggle to keep up.
