It was a tough battle, but the Generals rallied to win 24-16, improving to 2-1 and taking over first place in the North Division. The Stars dropped to 1-2.
Here are the top plays from New Jersey and Philly:
Can't touch this!
The Stars took a quick 7-0 lead when quarterback Bryan Scott connected with tight end Bug Howard, who was able to rise from the ground and sprint for a touchdown after no New Jersey defenders touched him.
Catch me if you can
When the Generals need a first down, it's wise to get the ball in the hands of the speedy KaVontae Turpin
Why use two hands when you only need one?
Devin Gray has great hands. Also, as you can see on this play, Scott really knows how to place a pass.
Want to know what it feels like to sack the quarterback?
Or at least see what it looks like? Pretty great view here …
The Stars saw Scott head to the medical tent for treatment.
The Stars would capitalize on the play with a field goal, pushing their lead to 10-0. The Generals countered with a field goal of their own, however, making it 10-3 at the half.
Generals find some juice
That set up this 4-yard dash by Darius Victor, which tied the score at 10-10.
Cookus is cookin'
Cookus put the Stars back on top with this TD pass to Diondre Overton, though a missed extra point kept it at 16-10.
To the Victor …
But the Generals fought back, and Victor's second touchdown of the game put New Jersey up 17-16.
Generals on the march
And as time started to draw short, Johnson kept the Generals grinding, taking it into the end zone himself for a 24-16 lead.
And that would end up being the final score.
