The New Jersey Generals picked up their fifth straight win last Sunday night with a 26-25 victory over the Houston Gamblers in a game that came down to the final play.

Perez finished 18-of-24 for 159 yards with a touchdown in the air and on the ground. WR KaVontae Turpin led the team in targets (11), receptions (10), receiving yards (106), and touchdowns (two).

The Tampa Bay Bandits lost 35-28 to the Philadelphia Stars on Saturday afternoon. Tampa Bay outgained and out-possessed Philadelphia putting up 305 total passing yards but unfortunately, turnovers–three to be exact–cost Tampa Bay the game. The Stars were able to score their first three touchdowns off of those turnovers. Despite the loss, Bandits’ QB Jordan Ta’amu had a big night. Ta’amu completed 27 of 40 pass attempts for 333 passing yards and four touchdowns with 1 interception. The former Ole Miss rebel currently sits second in the league in passing yards (1,167).
