Chicago Bears 10, Green Bay Packers (1-2) 7
PRE-SEASON - Monday August 19th 1968 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - The Packers learned Monday night that ball control isn't everything, not when there is someone named Gale Sayers around. Sayers, the only setback in the Chicago backfield on the second scrimmage play, took a handoff from Jack Concannon, sped to his left, shook two tacklers and then ran 76 yards with no one in front of him to lead the Bears to a 10-7 win over the Packers in the 19th annual Midwest Shrine Charities game. The Packers, looking far off the form that has brought them three successive championships, then plodded their way the rest of the game, controlling the ball on 76 plays to only 50 for the Bears and still not being able to pull it out. Each team managed just one score apiece after Sayers' run, the Bears on a 42-yard Mac Percival field goal in the second quarter and the Packers in the third period on a Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler pass.
