By RJ YoungFOX Sports WriterFollowing Week 4, the Birmingham Stallions continue to be the only unbeaten team in the USFL, but the New Orleans Breakers aren’t letting them run away with the South Division crown.The New Jersey Generals remain undefeated against North Division foes, but the Philadelphia Stars are just a game back after a valiant effort to win their matchup with Michigan.Add to this the fact that three of the league’s top scoring offenses are in the South Division and two of the top three scoring defenses are in the North Division, and you can see how nearly halfway through the season, there’s still plenty to play for in the league's inaugural season.Let's take a look at how the latest power rankings shake out:1. Follow that with the fact that the Breakers turned the ball over four times — including three INTs and a lost fumble by QB Kyle Sloter — and you can see how it was a tie game with seconds left to play.Newly signed New Orleans kicker Taylor Bertolet opened the scoring with a 50-yard field goal — the longest of the season to that point — against his former head coach at Texas A&M. Coming off an outstanding Week 3 performance in which Ta’amu passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Bandits to a comeback win, the Tampa offense struggled to do much of anything against the Stallions, mustering just 158 total yards and rushing for only 53.The defense looked like one of the best in the league after Week 1, and that might still be true. By the midway point of the third quarter, the Gamblers had three sacks and three takeaways — only to lose their third straight game this season.The Gamblers aren't getting consistency at quarterback from Clayton Thorson, who completed 15 of 26 passes for 127 yards and a TD.And while they boasted the league’s leading rusher in Thompson, the big back failed to run the ball well — he was held to just 10 yards on 14 rushes.
