See the full list of regular-season week-by-week matchups here.
Here are the top moments!
Kyle Lauletta is making his first start at quarterback for the Generals.
The Generals and Gamblers each punted to begin the game, which was followed by the former going for it on fourth-and-2 from the 50-yard line on their next possession. Running back Darius Victor got the call on the run but was stopped short of the line to gain by Gamblers defensive back Donald Rutledge Jr.
On third down of the ensuing possession, Gamblers quarterback Kenji Bahar hit tight end Clint Sigg Jr., who picked up the first down and went airborne for extra yardage. Sigg had a 15-yard reception later in the drive.
On the ninth play of the drive, Mark Thompson bulldozed his way into the end zone for a 6-yard score. Houston led 7-0 after the first quarter.
Making it happen
Faced with a third-and-17 on the Generals’ 5-yard line, Lauletta took matters into his own legs, taking off, absorbing a hit and gaining enough yards for the first down.
New Jersey was forced to punt shortly after Lauletta’s scramble, and Justin Hall ran the punt back to the Generals’ 39-yard line for Houston. On the second play of Houston’s possession, Haul reeled in a 14-yard reception. Four plays later, the Gamblers stretched their lead to two scores when Nick Vogel connected on a 38-yard field goal.
Going the other way
Lauletta had his pass intercepted by Gamblers safety Jeremiah Johnson on the Generals’ next possession. Five plays after the pick, which Johnson ran back to the Generals’ 42-yard line, Vogel made a 37-yard field goal. Houston led 13-0 at halftime.
Houston opened the second half with a 12-play, 7:31 drive that ended with Vogel making his third field goal. This one snuck inside the right post from 34 yards out.
