Birmingham 30 at Pittsburgh 18
1984 Week 3 - Sunday, March 11, 1984
Birmingham Stallions(1-1)(-3.5) at Pittsburgh Maulers(0-2)
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Joe Cribbs ran for 191 yards and two touchdowns as the Birmingham Stallions whipped Pittsburgh 30-18 Sunday, spoiling the USFL home debut of the Maulers and running back Mike Rozier.
Cribbs, flashing the form that enabled him to gain more than 1,000 yards in three of his four NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills, scored on runs of 4 and 13 yards. He had rushed for 101 yards by intermission as the Stallions built an 18-6 halftime lead.
Rozier, the Maulers $3 million back from Nebraska, was held to 52 yards on 16 carries and has yet to break the 100-yard mark for the winless Maulers(0-3).
