Green Bay Packers (1-0) 22, New York Giants 20
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 9th 1968 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Mike Mercer, the AFL reject who has found a home with the Packers, booted five field goals Saturday night to boost the Packers to a topsy-turvy exhibition victory over the Giants. Mercer, who played for Kansas City against the Packers in the first Super Bowl, split the uprights from 17 yards out and 21 seconds showing on the clock to bring Green Bay back from a two-point deficit. LB Henry Davis picked off a Don Horn pass and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown. That put the visitors ahead, 21-12, with 13:15 left. Rookie Dave Hampton, whose running sparked the Packers, put Green Bay back in the game with a 10-yard dash at 7:37. Willie Wood intercepted a pass at midfield, but the Packers gave the ball back to the Giants when Hampton fumbled at the New York two. Three plays later Doug Hart picked off a Milt Plum pass at the New York 18, setting up Mercer's field goal.
