The New Orleans Breakers established themselves as the early-season best team in the USFL on Sunday, as they defeated the Tampa Bay Bandits, 34-3. Quarterback Kyle Sloter completed 25 of 39 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns, and virtually all of his offensive weapons had big days. Jordan Ellis rushed 21 times for 64 yards, and Jonathan Adams caught five passes for 92 yards.

The Breakers jumped out to an early lead and didn’t look back. The offense scored touchdowns on both of their first two possessions, and the defense forced three consecutive three-and-outs from the Bandits on their first three possessions. No. 2 overall pick Jordan Ta’amu was seen as one of the best quarterbacks in this spring league, but he struggled Sunday, completing just 8 of 18 passes for 62 yards and one interception. Brady White also got some run, and he completed 3 of 10 passes for 35 yards and one pick.

The Bandits are a much better team than what they showed in this shocking loss, but the real story is that this Breakers team looks loaded. Be sure to check out the USFL standings and season schedule as well. We’ve got all the latest news on our USFL page here.
