USFL Week 5 recap: Scores, standings and more

The inaugural United States Football League season is halfway through and there’s at least one thing for certain – the first season will not end with any winless teams.

The Pittsburgh Maulers finally got into the win column on Sunday with a last-second effort from Vad Lee and Bailey Gaither. Pittsburgh scored in the final seconds of the game to beat the Houston Gamblers.

The Birmingham Stallions kept up their winning ways, stymying the Philadelphia Stars and the offense led by Case Cookus. Stallions quarterback J’Mar Smith had two total touchdowns in the game.
