Houston Gamblers Team Preview

New Head Coach, Curtis Johnson will be leading the Houston Gamblers on the sidelines this season, taking the place of former head coach Kevin Sumlin. The Houston Gamblers ended the 2022 season with a win in Birmingham, Alabama, over the New Orleans Breakers.

Houston will look to pick up where they left off and bounce back from their 3-7 regular season record from last year. The Houston gamblers will lean on an advantage in speed to pick up wins and they have one of the fastest quarterbacks in the league to do so in Kenji Bahar.

 Last season, Bahar completed 61% of his passes for a total gain of 541 yards and pitched in 87 additional yards on the ground. He threw two touchdown passes as well as two interceptions on his way to earning the starting spot in the 2023 season. Houston will be relying on Bahar and returning tailback Mark Thompson to lead the ship this Saturday.

New Orleans Breakers Team Preview

The New Orleans Breakers ended their debut season in the USFL with a 6-4 record which put them comfortably in second place in the USFL south division. After a near-perfect inaugural regular season, the breakers came up short of the Birmingham Stallions in the semifinals with a 31-17 loss. 

Head coach Larry Fedora has exited as new head coach John DeFilippo enters along with two newly acquired quarterbacks McLeod Bethel-Thompson and Aqeel Glass. Bethel-Thompson and coach DeFilippo have a connection from time spent together in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

The New Orleans Breakers took a 22-15 win over the Pittsburgh Maulers in their 2023 season opener. Bethel-Thompson threw for 303 passing yards with 23 completed passes in the win. The Breakers have one of the best wideouts in the league in Jonathan Adams and Johnnie Dixon and they will look to fire from all cylinders in the Saturday matchup against the Houston Gamblers.
