Pittsburgh Steelers 30, Green Bay Packers (3-1-1) 22
PRE-SEASON - Saturday September 1st 1973 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - The Green Bay Packers may or may not have found a quarterback here Saturday night. But they most definitely, most certainly lost a football game. Decisively at the end. The Steelers defeated the hopeful Packers in the next to last game of the pre-season. It was a shame, really, because this could have been the game in which, the Packers established themselves. The may-or-may-not-be quarterback is Jim Del Gaizo, the new kid from Miami. He did everything that could have been asked of him in leading the Packers to a 16-7 advantage in the first half. Then - is this an omen for the year? - Del Gaizo got battered up on a pass attempt. The injury was described as bruised ribs.
