Green Bay Packers (2-4) 20, Buffalo 14
PRE-SEASON - Friday September 10th 1971 (at Buffalo)
(BUFFALO) - Scott Hunter, a rookie quarterback from Alabama, may have earned a starting berth with Green Bay when the Packers open their season against the New York Giants a week from Sunday. Hunter took over from Zeke Bratkowski at the start of the second half against Buffalo Friday night and brought the Packers from behind for a 20-14 exhibition victory over the Bills. Hunter threw only six passes, but completed three for 86 yards. Two of the three were good for 39 and 31 yards. He engineered drives that set up two touchdowns by Dave Hampton and two field goals by Dave Conway. Coach Dan Devine of the Packers said Hunter "has great leadership qualities" but wouldn't commit himself on the rookie starting against the Giants.
