Boston's 21-17 victory over Philadelphia on a last-play tipped touchdown catch by Frank Lockett halted the Stars' eight-game winning streak and prevented them from winning the United States Football League's Atlantic Division title.  Boston began its winning 65-yard drive with 1:50 to play. Johnnie Walton threw on all 12 plays, completing seven passes. On fourth-and-two at the Philadelphia 14 with four seconds to go, Walton threw to Charlie Smith in a crowd in the end zone. The ball bounced off Smith's hand and fluttered a few feet away to Lockett and his catch gave the Breakers, 8-5, their third consecutive victory and dropped the Stars to 11-2.
