The Pittsburgh Maulers are in the USFL playoffs, having put together a complete performance as they have all season to clinch a spot in next weekend's North Division Championship. Behind their gutsy defense, which allowed seven or fewer points for the second consecutive week, Pittsburgh avenged a 20-3 loss to New Jersey in Week 2 by eliminating the Generals from postseason contention with a 26-6 blowout victory.

Pittsburgh’s defense stole the show in a second consecutive must-win game. After making Josh Love's life a nightmare a week ago, they harassed De’Andre Johnson into throwing his only two interceptions of the season, sacking him twice and allowing him to complete only 12 of his 27 pass attempts.

While the Maulers were dictating the game, halfway through the third quarter, the Generals had the ball and drove into Pittsburgh territory at the 46-yard line. The game shifted after a holding penalty wiped out a conversion and created a third-and-12.

Johnson looking in the opposite direction, Player came around the horn to force a fumble as he threw. Pittsburgh strong safety Eli Walker picked up the fluttering football and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown, creating the separation the Maulers needed and pushing their lead to 16-6.

After a six-play drive stalled due to a fumble that went behind Johnson, Troy Williams continued a highly efficient day running the Pittsburgh offense, completing three straight passes for 31 yards, highlighted by a 17-yard catch and run by Isiah Hennie. He led the way for the Pittsburgh receiving corps with six receptions for 48 yards. While the drive stalled, a Chris Blewitt field goal pushed the lead to 13.

After an ensuing three-and-out by the relentless Maulers' defense, that ended any hope one would have had on the Generals' side, causing a taxed defense to head back out to the field trailing by 13. Following a 21-yard punt by Brock Miller, Pittsburgh set up shop at the Generals' 37-yard line. A 12-yard run by Garrett Groshek on a third-and-5 pushed the Maulers into the red zone, with a 15-yard pass interference penalty committed in the end zone resulting in Pittsburgh getting inside the 5-yard line.

Former Michigan State and Tennessee running back Madre London took care of things from there, running four yards into the end zone for his first career USFL touchdown to make it 26-9, all but putting the game away with eight minutes on the clock.

The 28-year-old Williams prides himself on not making mistakes. On Saturday, he did more than that, going 17-for-25 in the air with his sixth passing touchdown of the season as he found Hennie on the opening drive. He showed off his wheels, rushing six times for 40 yards. If not for his production, Pittsburgh wouldn’t have found itself with a 9-6 lead through the halfway point of the third quarter.
