1985 Week 1 - Sunday, February 24, 1985
Portland Breakers(0-0) at Arizona Outlaws(0-0)(-8)
Attendance: 20,351

TEMPE(AP) - Luis Zendejas, the brother of the Express' Tony, kicked three field goals for Arizona's only points, but it proved enough for the win as the Outlaws downed the Portland Breakers 9-7 on Sunday. Zendejas' 43-yarder with 6:33 remaining provided the winning points at Tempe, AZ, and was set up by a Carl Allen interception. The game was seen by 20,321.

The Breakers, who played in Boston two years ago and New Orleans last season, got their only points on Marcus Dupree's 11-yard touchdown run. But Dupree, who had 69 yards rushing in 17 carries, was taken from the field on a stretcher with a knee injury.
