Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) 36, Green Bay Packers (6-6) 14
Sunday December 1st 1974 (at Philadelphia)
(PHILADELPHIA) -The Philadelphia Eagles snapped a six-game losing streak by turning five Green Bay fumbles into scores in a 36-14 victory over the Packers under the direction of rookie quarterback Mike Boryla in his first start. The Packers faded out of playoff contention in the first half when Boryla directed the Eagles to a field goal and three touchdowns, each after recovery of a Green Bay fumble. The young quarterback also engineered a nine-play, 80-yard drive for a fourth touchdown and the Eagles led 29-7 at halftime. When the Packers rallied to trail 29-14 and had a first down at the Eagles seven with 14 minutes remaining in the fourth period, the Eagles defense took over. They took possession when a fourth down and one Green Bay pass sailed out of the end zone. Moments later, the defense recovered another Green Bay fumble at the Packers' four and Boryla passed to Harold Carmichael for another touchdown. Tom Dempsey's 39-yard field goal after a fumble by John Brockington opened the Eagles' first-half onslaught against a Green Bay defense that had allowed an avenge of 8.8 points in its last seven games. In quick succession, the Eagles scored on an 87-yard fumble return by Will Wynn, a 13-yard pass from Boryla to Charley Young and a two-yard run by Tom Sullivan. Trailing 29-0, Green Bay scored its first touchdown late in the second quarter on a one-yard plunge by Brockington. The Packers scored again in the third period after Charley Hall intercepted a Boryla pass at the Philadelphia 10. John Hadl passed three yards to MacArthur Lane for the score.
