1983 Week 11 - Monday, May 16, 1983. Attendance: 32,862, TV: ESPN.

New Jersey's Herschel Walker and a five-game winning streak by the Michigan Panthers brought out the crowds at the Pontiac Silverdome. They got what they wanted — a good show by Walker and a better show by their own Ken Lacy. While Walker ran for 87 yards — and caught passes for 105 more — it was Lacy who generally won the hearts of the 32,862 Panther fans, chalking up 156 yards and a touchdown as Michigan came back from a 17-3 halftime deficit with an explosive third quarter. John Williams also made the crowd sit up and take notice with a fine second-half performance, scoring two of the three TDs in the Panthers' rally to help them extend their current winning streak to six. Walker, meanwhile, moved back into the USFL rushing lead with 1,138 yards, 17 ahead of Philadelphia's Kelvin Bryant. Walker also caught three passes for 105 yards.
