The offenses were stopped until late in the second half after a high-intensity start by both teams that included opening-drive touchdowns.

Even though quarterback Alex McGough was injured in the first half, the Birmingham Stallions came out of the halftime locker room with all guns blazing.

J’Mar Smith entered the game and, despite some early jitters, completed 11 of 21 passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns (one rushing, one passing).

With 23 seconds left on the clock, the Birmingham Stallions took the lead on a running touchdown.

After a strong start by Luis Perez, New Jersey quarterback De’Andre Smith had the most of the snaps in the second half.

Johnson led a rushing attack that dominated much of the second half, but the offensive fell short, and the Generals were defeated 28-24.
