PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A 46-yard interception return by Garcia Lane set up a go ahead touchdown by Dave Riley and Philadelphia went on to record its 11th victory in 12 games by winning at home against Los Angeles, 18-14.
A crowd of 22,391 saw Los Angeles quarterback Steve Young and fullback Mel Gray power the Express, 5-7, to a 14-9 lead with 3:18 left in the third quarter. Young ran nine yards to give Los Angeles its second touchdown. Gray, a rookie from Purdue, finished with 122 yards on 20 carries, including a 20-yard TD jaunt, to become the first rusher to gain more than 100 yards in a game against the Stars this season.
The Stars came back when Lane intercepted a Young pass and returned it to the two, from where Riley scored. The Stars settled for 15-14 lead when a two-point conversion missed, but David Trout booted a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for the final margin.
