Week 7 of the USFL season is here, and kicking it off is a thrilling matchup between the New Jersey Generals (5-1) and the Tampa Bay Bandits (3-3).
The game carries major playoff implications, as the Generals can clinch a postseason berth — with three regular-season games to go, no less — with a victory.
The Generals started the game shorthanded, with quarterback De’Andre Johnson out. That made Kyle Lauletta, who was just picked up this week, as the backup to Luis Perez.
Here are the top plays from Saturday’s game.
New Jersey Generals vs. Tampa Bay Bandits
Darius Victor got New Jersey going early with some hard running on a first-quarter drive.
A few plays later, KaVontae Turpin took a short pass from Perez and showed off some fancy footwork on his way to the end zone, making it 7-0.
The Bandits responded with a nice play of their own, converting a fourth-and-3 thanks to some sweet hands by tight end Corbin Kaufusi, who rumbled 32 yards on the play. Tampa Bay would settle for a field goal on the drive.
The Generals put together another impressive drive in the second quarter, marching 71 yards in 11 plays. Victor capped the drive with a 6-yard touchdown plunge, his league-leading sixth rushing TD of the season.
