Los Angeles 10 at Arizona 35


1984 Week 18 - Saturday, June 23, 1984
Los Angeles Express(10-7) at Arizona Wranglers(9-8)(-8)
Attendance: 35,258, TV: ESPN

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Greg Landry threw three touchdown passes -- two going to Trumaine Johnson in the third quarter -- as the Arizona Wranglers beat the Los Angeles Express 35-10 Saturday night and clinched a United States Football League playoff berth.

The Wranglers became a Western Conference wild card with a 10-8 record after notching their fourth straight win.

They will play at Houston next week if the Michigan Panthers win Sunday. If Michigan loses, the Wranglers and Express will meet in a post-season rematch next week in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles, already playoff-bound as Pacific Division champions, wound up the regular season also at 10-8 after having a five-game winning streak snapped. The Express took the division title due to their conference record of 7-4 compared to the Wranglers' 5-6.
