The New Orleans Breakers were unable to beat the Birmingham Stallions during their first two meetings in 2022. Birmingham won both games by single-digits as part of its eight-game winning streak to open the season.

Now, the two will do battle once again in the USFL playoffs with the Breakers looking to finally get over the hump and beat their South Division rival.

Each of the games that the Stallions have won were defensive battles. They won the first meeting 22-13 and the second 10-9.

In each contest, Breakers quarterback Kyle Sloter struggled against Birmingham’s strong defense; he threw four of his 11 interceptions against the Stallions compared to just two touchdowns. He will need to improve for the Breakers to have a chance to finally beat the one team they couldn’t this season.

The Stallions, meanwhile, will look to improve to 10-1 on the season and earn passage to the USFL championship. They will have to do so outside of Birmingham for the first time all season, so quarterback J’Mar Smith, running back Bo Scarbrough and wide receiver Victor Bolden Jr. will need to bring their A-game against a tough New Orleans defense.
