Cincinnati Bengals 13, Green Bay Packers (3-2-1) 10
PRE-SEASON - Saturday September 8th 1973 (at Cincinnati)
(CINCINNATI) - Horst Muhlmann's 31-yard field goal with three seconds remaining lifted the Cincinnati Bengals to a 13-10 exhibition victory over the Green Bay Packers. Quarterback Ken Anderson came off the bench when Virgil Carter suffered a shoulder injury and directed the Bengals on the game winning drive. Green Bay, trailing 10-0 early in the game when the Bengals turned two interceptions into scoring plays, stormed back in the final quarter behind recently acquired running back Don Highsmith to tie it at 10-10 with 7:53 left. The Packers drove 83 yards in 15 plays, with Perry Williams ramming over from the one. It was the second straight week Anderson guided the Bengals to a corne-from-behind victory. It was Cincinnati's third straight triumph to close preseason play with a 4-2 record - second best exhibition record in the team's six-year history.
