Atlanta Falcons (4-2) 10, Green Bay Packers (4-2) 9
Sunday October 22nd 1972 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Playing in the rain, Green Bay jumped out to a 9-0 lead on three Chester Marcol field goals, before Atlanta cut the Packer lead to two when Art Malone scored just before the half at the end of an 86-yard, 13-play drive. Bill Bell kicked a field goal to give the Falcons the lead in the third quarter, and Green Bay's chance to win died when Marcol missed a 35-yard field goal in the final minutes. Atlanta ran 71 plays to Green Bay's 35, with QB Bob Berry converting 11 of 18 third-down plays in directing a ball-control attack.
