Birmingham 29 at Houston 27


1985 Week 15 - Monday, June 3, 1985
Birmingham Stallions(10-4)(-1) at Houston Gamblers(9-5)
Attendance: 13,202, TV: ESPN

HOUSTON(AP) - The Birmingham Stallions didn't have their two top offensive weapons in the game so they relied on a razzle-dazzle play to get them started and kicking of Danny Miller and running of quarterback Cliff Stoudt to finish up. The combined result was a 29-27 United States Football League victory over the Houston Gamblers Monday night that vaulted the Stallions into the league playoffs. Birmingham played the game without leading rusher Joe Cribbs and top receiver Jim Smith but Paul Ott Carruth subbed for Cribbs and Miller kicked field goals of 47,43 and 20 yards to insure the victory. The Gamblers were missing quarterback Jim Kelly, out at least three more weeks with a torn ligament in his right knee.
