Green Bay Packers (5-5-1) 27, Washington Redskins (4-7) 7
Sunday November 24th 1968 (at Washington)
(WASHINGTON) - The Packers, turning to a vintage substitute for victory, have bounded back within reach of a fabled comeback in their try for a fourth straight title. Balding super sub Zeke Bratkowski brought Green Bay back to within half a game of the top in its division battle for a playoff berth as he passed the Packers to a conquest of Washington. The veteran quarterback, who riddled the Redskins for 18 completions on 24 passes for 230 yards, said, '"There's only one statistic that counts—the win." The 37-year-old Bratkowski started in place of Bart Starr, who was sidelined with sore ribs, and completed eight straight passes to guide the Packers to two early touchdowns. He capped the triumph with a 47-yard pass to Donny Anderson, who broke away from three Redskins to score. For Bratkowski, who began his pro career back in 1954 about the same time Anderson was entering the fifth grade, the role of victorious reserve was almost routine. Nine times in the past three championship seasons the backup passer took over to steer the Packers to success in a game. Bart and Brat, Green Bay's interchangeable quarterbacks, plan their play together so that a sudden change in signal callers for the Packers is nearly as smooth as slipping a new part in a machine. The Packers' crushing defense aided by holding the Redskins without a first down for nearly 25 minutes, grabbing three fumbles, and giving up only 33 yards rushing all day.
