The Birmingham Stallions came from behind to defeat the New Jersey Generals 28-24 in an instant classic Saturday on FOX.

Opening weekend action continues Sunday with three games starting at 12 p.m. ET.

Generals QB Luis Perez launched a 49-yard rocket to Randy Satterfield for an explosive first play of the day.

The duo followed that up with a quick 3-yard touchdown to take an early first-quarter lead.

Birmingham QB Alex McGough knotted things up with a big 35-yard pass to Osirus Mitchell.

Generals safety Shalom Luani was taking down anyone in his path and set the tone early with this tackle:

Football fans got their first look at the new helmet camera, as Stallions linebacker DeMarquis Gates came up with the first sack of the season, knocking Perez back seven yards.

McGough's deep pass up the middle was intercepted by Luani, and just like that, the first takeaway of the season was on the books.

After Stallions safety Nate Holley came up with the fumble, he followed that up with a huge hit on Generals QB De'Andre Johnson, who checked in for Perez.
