We’ve reached Week 6 of the USFL season and the Sunday slate will kick off at noon ET with a showdown between the Pittsburgh Maulers and New Orleans Breakers on FS1.
New Orleans (3-2) is trying to rebound from last week’s 27-17 loss at the hands of the New Jersey Generals. The Breakers fell into a hole early and couldn’t quite keep pace with the Generals throughout the matchup. Quarterback Kyle Sloter went 15-36 for 155 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the loss.
Pittsburgh (1-4) was able to pick up its first win of the season last week with a 21-20 victory over the Houston Gamblers. In his first week with the team, quarterback Vad Lee fired off a 30-yard touchdown pass to Bailey Gaither with four seconds left for the game-winning score.
