There are just three weekends remaining in the USFL regular season before the top 2 teams from each division head to the playoffs in Canton, Ohio.

Birmingham Stallions are undefeated at 7-0 and lead the South Division by two games over the New Orleans Breakers (5-2). The Tampa Bay Bandits are 3-4, taking a step back last week when they lost to the New Jersey Generals.

In the North Division, the Generals remain in first place with a 6-1 record and are riding high on a six-game win streak. They are two games clear of the second place Philadelphia Stars. The Generals only loss is a 28-24 loss to the Stallions in Week 1. So far it looks like both teams are aiming for a rematch in Canton with the third and fourth place teams both at 1-6.
