The Philadelphia Stars dominated the first half of their NFL debut against the New Orleans Breakers, yet the Breakers lead 9-7 in the first half thanks to first-half errors by the Stars. Brian Scott threw an interception at Fontay Diggs that was returned 37 yards for the touchdown to put the Breaker ahead 7-0, and New Orleans blocked Matt Mengele’s kick for safety that put the Breaker 9-0 to start the game.
The Stars otherwise dominated the match, leading the Breakers in total yards 162 to 90 and holding time for 20 minutes in the first half. Scott capped 11 plays, 94 yards with a six-yard touchdown pass to Bug Howard – my only offensive line of the game – to cut the difference to 9-7.
With the NFL preparing for the 2022 draft in Las Vegas and football fans hungry for a viable spring league, the NFL hopes to become a mainstay in the lives of those who crave the stadiums and don’t want to get out of it. If it’s you, and probably, buckle up – we’ve already seen excitement in Birmingham Stallion win the season opener on Saturday nightSunday’s first game saw the Houston Gamblers pull off a furious comeback by the Michigan Panthers, whose TD would likely have been an incomplete final play in the end zone.
Here’s a look at the results so far as Stars and Breakers progress:
Birmingham Stallion 28, New Jersey 24 generals
Houston Gamblers 17, Michigan Panthers 12 (Final)
