Green Bay Packers (3-1) 22, San Diego Chargers (0-3-1) 20
Monday October 12th 1970 (at San Diego)
(SAN DIEGO) - As they won their third straight at the expense of a plucky but winless San Diego Charger club Monday night, 22-20, the Packers could thank 33-year-old Willie Wood and 36-year-old Bart Starr. "The way I feel now, I could play another 20 years," declared Wood after intercepting a pass from young Marty Domres at the Chargers' 24 and running it back to the 13. That defensive gem set up a 14-yard field goal by Dale Livingston, his thud three-pointer of the night, and the one that provided the victory. After a 6-6 first half that saw four field goals, the Packers surged back in the third quarter, scoring on Starr passes of four yards to Jack Clancy and two yards to John Hilton. With a 19-6 lead, Coach Phil Bengston took Starr out, explaining later, "His shoulder was bothering him." Don Horn took over at quarterback only to run into quick trouble. Pete Barnes intercepted his pass at the Charger 22 and returned to the 36. With Domres, the second-year pro from Columbia, taking over at quarterback from starter John Hadl, the Chargers charged. Domres shot a short, swing pass to rookie Dave Smith on a play gaining 42 to the Packer 22. Jeff Queen lost two and then Domres pitched out to Willie Frazier on a reverse. Frazier raced for the touchdown. Virtually the same play had set up an earlier field goal. Two minutes and 15 seconds later, Queen scored from the one following a Horn fumble at the 10. About that time Bengston was asking Starr if he could throw. "When he said he could, I put him back in," explained the coach. Controversy had centered on the Charger quarterback situation before the game. With Hadl in General Manager Sid Gillman's doghouse, it wasn't decided until later whether he or Domres would start. John worked three quarters and later commented on reports he might be peddled to another NFL club. "I don't know if this trade talk had any effect on the team. It's not easy to concentrate with this hanging over your head." Livingston's other field goals were from 16 and 27 yards in the first half that ended 6-6 as Mike Mercer was accurate from 16 and 29. What provided the Chargers' their short-lived one-point advantage was a Livingston point-after-touchdown try blocked by Tom Williams. Defensive end Lionel Aldridge added to Hadl's woes. He sacked the quarterback four of the six times he was thrown behind the line. Travis Williams (109 yards) and Donny Anderson (89) combined for all but two of the Packers' 200 yards rushing. San Diego's Willie Frazier racked up 94 yards on just two runs.
