RJ Young ranks the best teams in the USFL. The undefeated Birmingham Stallions stayed at the top, followed by the New Jersey Generals. See how the list shakes!

Then on Tuesday, Stallions won the Player of the Week award on both offense and defense. Week 6 was the second straight week in which Stallions swept the awards.

Let’s see.

Offensive Player of the Week: Bo Scarbro, RB, Birmingham Stallions

Running back CJ Marable won this award for Stallions last week. Because the newly signed Scarbrough was still trying to get his feet wet.

“I think both [Scarbrough] And CJ will play a role,” Holtz said after week five.

Holtz was no joke.

Alabama former star Scarbrough led the Stallions with touchdowns to 105 yards and 16 carry in Week 6, averaging 6.6 yards. He also caught two passes over 15 yards.

His 28-yard touchdown rush early in the fourth quarter gave Birmingham a 25-17 lead and an iron grip in the game.

Scarbrough told Young about his breakout performance.

Defender of the Week: Jojo TilleryS, Birmingham Stallion

There is no denying that a stallion owned this statue. Two weeks ago, linebacker Scooby Wright won. Last week was linebacker DeMarquis Gates.

In week 6, it was Tillery’s turn to take the spotlight.

Tillery dug the sack from his safe position with 10 tackles everywhere (all solo) against the Panthers.

Finally, he celebrated Birmingham’s victory in style.

Special Team Players of the Week: Cole Murphy, K, Michigan Panthers

The Panthers didn’t win last week, but it’s certainly not Murphy’s fault for giving them a 3-0 lead with a 56-yard field goal in the first quarter, their longest field goal of the season.

In addition to his record-breaking kick, Murphy was also perfect in two additional scoring attempts, accounting for five of the Panthers’ 17 points in a 33-17 defeat.
