Philadelphia Stars(0-0)(-8.5) at Memphis Showboats(0-0)
MEMPHIS (AP) - Philadelphia, whose 15-3 mark was the league's best in last year's regular season, used the same formula - tough defense and methodical offense. Chuck Fusina's 42-yard touchdown pass to Steve Folsom put the game away in the fourth quarter and gave the Stars a 17-9 win over the Showboats as 28,098 fans turned out for the USFL's Memphis debut.
