(GREEN BAY) - There will be no Super Bowl talk about this team, but the Packers took their first little step back to respectable football under Dan Devine Saturday night. Second-year quarterback Scott Hunter threw a 40-yard touchdown pass and scored himself on a one-yard plunge as the Packers upended Cincinnati 24-14 last night. The Packers rolled up a 21-3 halftime bulge and hung on for the victory in the first pre-season game for both teams. Green Bay blended the heavy foot of rookie Chester Marcol with the arm and artistry of Hunter and a tight-fisted defense. Marcol, a long-awaited weapon, kept the Bengals at bay with his booming kick-offs in company with Dave Hanners' hard hitting defenders.
