EXHIBITION - Washington Redskins 35, Green Bay Packers (0-2) 31
Tuesday September 10th 1946 (at Denver)
GAME RECAP (MILWAUKEE SENTINEL)
(DENVER) - The Green Bay Packers built up a 24-7 advantage in the first half here tonight but the Washington Redskins roared back with 14 points in each of the last two periods to eke out a 35-31 exhibition victory. McKay kicked off for the
Packers over the end zone and the Redskins
marched 80 yards to a touchdown, with Akins
and Couppee cracking the Packer line and
Baugh throwing hard, short passes to Schilling
and  Cifers. Couppee ploughed eight yards from
the touchdown, carrying two ponderous Packer
linemen over with him. Poillon kicked the extra
point to give Washington a 7-0 lead.
COMP GOES OVER
Midway in the period, Defruiter of the Redskins
fumbled and Ray recovered for the Packers on
the Redskin 20. Comp passed to Rohrig on the
17 and Comp bulled through center for a
touchdown. A moment later, Evashevski 
intercepted a pass from Youel to give the
Packers a first down at the Redskin 16. A few
plays later, Comp spun through right tackle for
five yards and crossed the goal but the Packers
were penalized to the 10 for offside. Adkins 
kicked a field goal, giving the Packers a 10-7 lead. Halfway through the second period with the Packers stationed on the Redskin 46, Nussbaumer ran wide to the left and behind powerful interference went down the east sideline to a touchdown. Adkins kicked the extra point to give the Packers a 17-7 lead.
LEAD 24-7 AT HALF
Near the end of the half, Poillon of the Redskins fumbled a lateral pass from Jacobs and the Packers recovered on their own 34. Comp smacked center for a first down on the 44, then threw a beautiful long pass to Luhn, who was in the clear as he took it at the 25 but Youel caught him at the 16. Rohrig roared around left end to the seven, Comp raced to the two, and with 15 seconds remaining in the half, Comp circled left end for a touchdown and Adkins again kicked the extra point. Todd intercepted a pass from Comp at the Redskin 33 early in the third period to set up a Redskin comeback drive. Two passes from Baugh to Lookabugh carried to the Packer 29, and a few plays later Akins went two yards over left guard for a touchdown. The fired-up Redskins came right back for another score. Starting from their own 22, Akins hit
left guard to the 32 and Todd broke over right tackle to the Packer 49. Baugh passed to Bagarus at the 30 and he eluded several tacklers in a beautiful, criss-cross run to a touchdown.
BAUGH PROVES SPARK
Baugh, the spark the Redskins needed, threw a 15 yard pass to Turley a short time later. Turley took it neatly out of Comp's hands at the 15 and went the rest of the way for a touchdown. Poillon kicked the extra point and it was 28-24. A few moments later, Koniszewski intercepted a pass from Comp and set the Redskins up on the Packer 40. Baugh passed to Akins on the 35 and he brushed past two would-be tacklers in running to a touchdown. After Luhn returned Turley's kickoff from the Packer 21 to the 31, Green Bay marched to a touchdown on passes from Comp to Prescott and Rohrig, with Comp driving over from the one yard stripe. Adkins kicked the extra point. In the final seconds the Bays reached the 1 yard line but lost their chance on penalties.

At the ends he named Clyde Goodnight and Nolan Luhn, Dick Wildung and Paul Lipscomb will be at tackle, Willard Letlow and Bob Adkins at guard and Charley Brock at center, Larry Craig, Bruce Smith, Herman Rohrig and Ted Fritsch will be in the backfield.
PACKERS TO PLAY GIANTS AT POLO GROUNDS FRIDAY
SEPTEMBER 20 (New York) - Defeated in their first two starts, in one by the Philadelphia Eagles, 7-6, and in the other by the Washington Redskins, 35-31, the Green Bay Packers Friday night will try for their first entry on the right side of the ledger when they meet the New York Giants in a charity exhibition at the Polo Grounds. A crowd of 50,000 is expected. The game will be Green Bay's last before the start of the regular season against the Chicago Bears at Green Bay a week from Sunday. The Packers, who have done a week's training here, looked to be in tip-top shape. All cripples of earlier games were ready to play. Green Bay ruled a slight favorite.
