1984 Week 8 - Sunday, April 15, 1984
Arizona Wranglers(3-4) at New Jersey Generals(6-1)(-4)
Attendance: 31,917, TV: ABC

E. RUTHERFORD,NJ (AP) - Kevin Long, who used to play for the New York Jets when they were coached by Walt Michaels, rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns in leading the Arizona Wranglers to a 20-3 upset of the Michael-coached New Jersey Generals Sunday in the United States Football League.

The loss dropped the Generals to 6-2 and out of a first place tie in the Atlantic Divsion with the Philadelphia Stars, who trounced the Chiago Blitz 41-7.

With the Wranglers leading 7-3, Long set up a two-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter when he hooked up on a 40-yard pass-run play with quarter Greg Landry.

Long, who rushed 24 times besides catching three passes for 52 yards, later scored on a nine-yard run. Generals running back Herschel Walker returned after missing a game with a sore shoulder, but gained only 57 yards in 16 carries.
