WASHINGTON (AP) - Kevin Mack rushed for 141 yards, including touchdowns runs of 1 and 71 yards in the fourth quarter, as the Los Angeles Express overcame an 11-point deficit to beat the Washington Federals 35-21.

Trailing, 21-10, in the third quarter, the Express rallied on Kevin Nelson's 5-yard touchdown run and a 23-yard field goal by Tony Zendejas before Mack's 1-yard touchdown put the Express ahead for the first time with 4:44 remaining.
