Green Bay Packers (3-0-1) 21, Kansas City Chiefs 16
PRE-SEASON - Sunday August 26th 1973 (at Kansas City)
(KANSAS CITY) - AP)—"It was a bad start," said Kansas City Coach Hank Stram of the first Green Bay offensive play in the Packers' 21-16 victory over the Chiefs Sunday night. The first Green Bay play was a plunge off tackle by MacArthur Lane, who went 20 yards for a touchdown. "But the way we retaliated and as hard as we played, especially in the second half, is a good sign," Stram added. Green Bay Coach Dan Devine, in his first visit to Kansas City since moving to the pro ranks in 1971 after a successful career at the University of Missouri, said, "We had a tremendous effort by a lot of people on a hot, muggy night." It was 94 degrees at the start of the game, which saw the Packers' record move to 3- 0-1 and the Chiefs' slip to 1-3. After Lane's touchdown, the teams battled evenly until Kansas City middle linebacker Willie Lanier forced a Green Bay fumble on its own 14. Kansas City made a first down but couldn't get the ball in the end zone and had to settle for a field goal by Jan Stenerud.
