How To Watch USFL – Pittsburgh Maulers Vs Birmingham Stallions Prediction and Overview

Pittsburgh Maulers (5-6 · 1ST IN NORTH)

The Pittsburgh Maulers have reached the final round defeating the other powerhouses of this season. Maulers have struggled very hard and faced many challenges in the journey. The Maulers have won 5 and lost 6 matches so far. In week 4, Stallions overpowered the Maulers by 24-20. But this time Maulers have a chance to take revenge. Head coach Ray Horton made great strategies and took the team to the final round. And he has high hopes that this time against the Stallions will be different.

 Top Moments! 

Pittsburgh Maulers 31, Michigan Panthers 27

Michigan made significant progress in their offensive drive, advancing into the red zone primarily due to an impressive catch by running back Stevie Scott III. The play unfolded on a critical third-and-10 situation at the Maulers’ 35-yard line. Quarterback E.J. Perry’s pass was slightly out in front of Scott, but the talented running back skillfully hauled it in with one hand and skillfully evaded multiple tackle attempts, resulting in a substantial 30-yard gain. Despite their efforts, the Panthers were ultimately limited to a 23-yard field goal, successfully converted by kicker Cole Murphy.

After Michigan’s successful field goal, Pittsburgh quickly responded with a strong offensive drive of their own. The Maulers’ kicker, Chris Blewitt, showcased his accuracy and leg strength by connecting on a 45-yard field goal attempt. With this successful kick, the Maulers leveled the score at three points apiece, bringing the first quarter to a close. Both teams were off to a competitive start in the game.

 

In a defensive play that swung the momentum in favor of the Maulers, Olive Sagapolu, a defensive lineman for Pittsburgh, managed to strip the ball from Panthers running back Reggie Corbin. The loose ball was then recovered by Maulers’ defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. at the Panthers’ 13-yard line. This turnover provided a valuable opportunity for the Maulers’ offense to capitalize on a short field and potentially take the lead in the game.

Taking advantage of the penalty on the Panthers’ defense, the Maulers managed to convert a crucial fourth-and-1 situation. With the Panthers committing a neutral zone infraction, the Maulers were awarded a first down. On the subsequent play, Garrett Groshek, likely the running back, powered his way into the end zone from 2 yards out, scoring a touchdown for the Maulers. This gave Pittsburgh the lead and added to their momentum in the game.

In a disappointing turn of events for the Panthers, E.J. Perry’s pass was intercepted by Mauler’s safety Arnold Tarpley III. This marked the third turnover by the Pittsburgh offense in a span of four drives during the first half. Turnovers can significantly impact the momentum and scoring opportunities for a team, and the Panthers will need to address their ball security issues to regain control of the game.

Following the interception, Troy Williams connected with Isiah Hennie on a 41-yard pass play, setting up the Maulers for a potential score. However, their field goal attempt was blocked by Michigan’s Noah Dawkins, preventing Pittsburgh from extending their lead. Despite the blocked field goal, the Maulers maintained a 10-3 advantage heading into halftime.

The Panthers seized the opportunity to level the score after the turnover in their territory. E.J. Perry connected with WR Trey Quinn and TE Cole Hikutini for a series of completions. Which totaled 48 yards and moved the Panthers into the red zone. On the next play, Perry ran for a 6-yard TD, knotting the game at 10-10. 

The Panthers capitalized on the opportunity of a successful defensive stand to take the lead. E.J. Perry launched a deep pass to WR Marcus Simms on the first play of the drive. Simms made an impressive catch and managed to stay on his feet. And sprinted into the end zone for a 72-yard touchdown. Leading Panthers to 17-10 as the third quarter came to a close. 

The Maulers capitalized on the penalties committed by Michigan’s Josh Butler and Breeland Speaks, helping them sustain a touchdown drive. During the drive, Troy Williams connected with Ishmael Hyman on a 14-yard completion, with Hyman displaying physicality and fighting for extra yards. On the eighth play of the drive, Bailey Gaither received the handoff and powered his way into the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown, putting the Maulers in a strong position.

Chris Blewitt scored a 59-yard FG with only 3:21 remaining of the 4th quarter. Leading the Maulers to 20-17.

Trey Quinn scored a 55-yard touchdown with the help from Perry giving Panthers the lead again. 

In a critical late-game drive, Pittsburgh capitalized on the penalties and made significant gains on offense. Troy Williams connected with Garrett Groshek for a 25-yard gain, advancing the Maulers’ position. A pass interference penalty against Michigan’s Josh Butler further helped Pittsburgh’s cause, placing them in the red zone. Williams then found Isiah Hennie for a 14-yard reception, setting up a pivotal moment.

With just 39 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Williams delivered a clutch throw to Ishmael Hyman for the go-ahead touchdown, giving the Maulers a 24-20 lead. The score put Pittsburgh in a favorable position to secure the victory and added another exciting twist to the game’s final moments.

Panthers’ Murphy scored a 47-yard field goal which put the game to overtime.

In a thrilling overtime matchup, Pittsburgh’s quarterback Troy Williams connected with Mason Stokke for a touchdown in the first overtime period, giving the Maulers the lead. On the ensuing possession, Michigan’s running back Stevie Scott III fumbled the ball near the end zone, resulting in an unsuccessful scoring attempt for the Panthers.

In the second overtime, Williams took matters into his own hands and ran in a score, extending Pittsburgh’s lead. Michigan’s quarterback E.J. Perry attempted a pass, but it was deflected at the line of scrimmage, bringing an end to the game.

The back-and-forth overtime battle ultimately favored the Pittsburgh Maulers, as they secured the victory with strong offensive plays and a key defensive stop. The outcome showcased the resilience and determination of both teams, making for an exciting and closely contested contest.

The Stallions scored three points after the turnover, but New Orleans responded strongly by scoring a touchdown with an impressive back-shoulder fade.
