New Jersey Generals vs. Philadelphia Stars

Can’t touch this!

The Stars took a quick 7-0 lead when quarterback Bryan Scott connected with the tight end of Bug Howard, who was able to rise from the ground and sprint for a touchdown after no New Jersey defenders touched him.

Catch me if you can

When the Generals need a first down, it’s wise to get the ball in the hands of the speedy KaVontae Turpin

Why use two hands when you only need one?

Devin Gray has great hands. Also, as you can see this play, Scott really knows how to place a pass.

Want to know what it feels like to sack the quarterback?

Or at least that’s what it looks like? Pretty great view here…

Shuffling quarterbacks

The Stars saw Scott head to the medical tent for treatment.

That meant backup QB Case Cookus got a chance to play. All the Northern Arizona product did on his first play was toss a 42-yard strike.

The Stars would capitalize on the play with a field goal, pushing their lead to 10-0. The Generals countered with a field goal of their own, however, making it 10-3 at the half.

Generals find some juice

With Stars QB Scott remaining out with an injuryNew Jersey had a chance to make some noise, and QB De’Andre Johnson did just that with this scamper early in the third quarter.

That set up this 4-yard dash by Darius Victor, which tied the score at 10-10.
