In front of 17,434, Jim Druckenmiller threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Daryl Hobbs with 20 seconds left to give the Memphis Maniax a 29-23 victory over the Chicago Enforcers. The td pass, Druckenmiller's third of the night, capped a 413-yard passing performance by the Memphis quarterback. Charles Jordan caught 10 passes from Druckenmiller for 240 yards. The victory was the first home win of the year for Memphis (3-3), while the road woes continued for Chicago (1-5), which has now lost all four of its games away from Soldier Field.

Memphis had to rely on the passing game after starting running back Rashaad Salaam went out in the first half with a bruised shoulder. Replacement Rafael Cooper injured his knee and failed to return after halftime. The Druckenmiller-to-Hobbs scoring pass offset Chicago's go-ahead touchdown on a 7-yard run by LeShon Johnson with two minutes to play. The score, Johnson's second of the night, gave the Enforcers a 23-22 lead. The teams exchanged leads throughout the night after Memphis scored on the opening drive. Chicago led 17-15 at the half as both teams scored easily. Each punted only once in the half, and Memphis had the only turnover, a fumble at the Enforcers 1-yard line that Chicago recovered in the end zone, thwarting a Maniax scoring drive.

The difference in the first half was the Enforcers' ability to convert their extra points. Chicago scored on a 25-yard run by John Avery, who had 78 yards rushing on the night, and Johnson's first touchdown, a 3-yard run. Andy Crosland hit a 38-yard field goal for Chicago in the first quarter. The Maniax touchdowns came on Salaam's 1-yard run on the game's opening drive, and a 39-yard pass from Druckenmiller to Jordan on the first play of the second quarter. Jeff Hall's 19-yard field goal cut the Enforcers' halftime lead to 2. Druckenmiller's second touchdown pass, a 6-yarder to tight end Mark Thomas, gave Memphis a 22-17 lead, setting the stage for the exchange of scores in the final two minutes.
