(GREEN BAY) - Lamar McHan replaced Bart Starr as the starting quarterback, and led Green Bay to a win. It was the defensive line, dubbed as an area of strength in the preseason outlook, that failed the Detroit Lions. Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung hammered the vaunted corps of Detroit defenders into submission and their savage thrusts through the middle led the Packers on a second-half comeback and a 28-9 triumph. Taylor and Hornung racked up a total of 224 yards rushing but they didn't get rolling until the second half when the Packers rallied for three touchdowns to wipe out a 9-7 halftime deficit. The powerful foot of Jim Martin accounted for all of the Lion points. Taylor busted out for 151 yards rushing. Hornung hit paydirt for the other two Packer scores and contributed 16 points to the Green Bay total. The former Notre Dame All-American scored one on a 16-yard pass from Lamar McHan and dashed 11 yards off tackle for the other.
