The Maulers are still the only team not to register a win in the USFL after a 21-13 loss on Saturday against the New Jersey Generals in a North Division contest. The Maulers came into the game as the league’s lowest-scoring team and nothing they showed against New Jersey improved on that.

The Generals got on the board first when De’Andre Johnson rolled to his left and found Alonzo Moore wide open and took it to the house for a 62-yard scoring strike.

New Jersey padded its lead to 11 early in the third quarter after a Cameron Echols-Luper kickoff return set the Generals up in great field position. The Generals hit pay dirt seven plays later on a Darius Victor 3-yard touchdown run. Victor leads the USFL with four rushing scores this year.

The Maulers could only muster 256 yards of total offense, while the Generals used an efficient passing game to move the chains, completing 20-of-24 passes to hold the ball for almost 35 minutes.
