(PITTSBURGH) - Aging Bart Starr weathered a windy, snow-covered field and low temperatures as he fired two second-half touchdown passes to give the Green Bay Packers a 20-12 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Larry Krause returned the opening kickoff 100 yards to put the Packers out front. The placement snap on the extra point try was fumbled. The Steelers, however, behind quarterback Terry Hanratty, marched to within striking distance the first time they got the ball, but had to settle for a 15-yard field goal. With the Packers leading 6-3 going into the second half, rookie Terry Bradshaw replaced Hanratty as the Steelers' quarterback. Bradshaw had trouble finding receivers and had two passes intercepted before he unleased an 87-yard scoring bomb to WR Dave Smith, who beat Bob Jeter on the play. The Packer defense picked off five passes, including four of Bradshaw's.
