(BALTIMORE) - Elijah Pitts, one of two substitutes in the backfield, raced 34 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to give the Green Bay Packers a 34-20 victory over the Baltimore Colts. Pitts was playing for Tom Moore, who was inactivated with a pinched nerve in his neck. His touchdown run, set up with a great block by guard Fuzzy Thurston, broke a 20-20 tie which the Colts had forged on 17 points in the last half. Jim Taylor added a 17-yard run after the Colts failed to make a first down on their 20 when Henry Jordan brought down Johnny Unitas in his tracks. John Roach, playing for the injured Bart Starr, kept the Packers moving and threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Marv Fleming, filling in for Ron Kramer who hurt a knee early in the first half. Fleming's touchdown, Taylor's first TD on a plunge and a 46-yard field goal by Jerry Kramer provided Green Bay with a 17-3 halftime lead. During the wild second quarter, the Packers lost fumbles on the Colt 5 and 3. They intercepted two passes and recovered a Colt fumble. The Colts, who could make only two first downs in the first half, came to life in the third quarter and scored a touchdown in six plays covering 80 yards. Unitas threw 13 yards to Lenny Moore to reduce the score to 20-10. Jim Martin made it 20-13 with his second field goal after the Colts were denied a chance for a touchdown when Unitas was penalized for intentionally grounding the ball. The Colts tied the score on a 48-yard pass play, John Mackey making a spectacular overhead catch. After Jordan blocked an attempted 47-yard field goal by Martin, the Packers were moved into winning position for Pitts' run by a pass interference call against Lenny Lyles on Max McGee. Roach completed nine passes in 20 attempts for 156 yards and one touchdown. He had two passes intercepted.
