New Jersey 16 at Philadelphia 10

1984 Week 18 - Sunday, June 24, 1984
New Jersey Generals(13-4) at Philadelphia Stars(16-1)(-7.5)
Attendance: 37,758, TV: ABC

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - New Jersey snapped a 14-game Philadelphia winning streak and beat the Stars for the second time this season on Sunday. "I would rather be 2-0 against them going into the game then have them be 2-0 against us," quarterback Brian Sipe said after New Jersey's 16-10 victory at Philadelphia, where the teams meet again on Saturday in an Eastern Conference playoff game.

"Next week it's another new game," said Coach Walt Michaels, mindful that his Generals were the only USFL club able to beat the 16-2 Stars this season.

"We just got to do it harder next week. I'm sure the Stars will try to do it harder, too," Michaels added.

Sipe threw a 50-yard pass to running back Herschel Walker to give New Jersey, 14-4, a 16-7 lead. Roger Ruzek kicked three field goals for the Generals. Kelvin Bryant, benched in the first half for tardiness at a team meeting, scored on a two-yard run and David Trout kicked a 39-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for Philadelphia.
