Green Bay Packers (4-2) 26, Cincinnati Bengals 24
PRE-SEASON - Friday September 6th 1974 (at Cincinnati)
(MILWAUKEE) - Preseason game or not, and never mind Chester Marcol's shattered snytax, what the Packers accomplished in 31 frantic seconds Friday night immeasurably boosted their often tenuous team morale. "It was a very mentally lifting game, that's for sure," said Marcol, as he recounted his 47-yard field goal with no time left. The Packers, a grumbling, feuding lot most of their dismal 1973 season, wound up exhibition play with a 4-2 record. The Bengals, down 23-3 early in the third quarter, charged back on two short touchdown runs by Boobie Clark and took a 24-23 lead on a 24-yard scoring pass from reserve Wayne Clark to rookie John McDaniel with 31 seconds left. But linebacker Larry Hefner fielded Horst Muhlmann's short kickoff on the Packer 30 and lateraled to Eric Torkelson, who ran 15 yards to the Packer 45. Three straight pass completions by Jack Concannon carried to the Bengal 38. Then, with 11 seconds left, linebacker Ken Avery was called for pass interference on a toss to John Brockington. With first down at the 30, a Concannon pass up the middle slipped off Brockington's fingers. Concannon called time with two seconds left, setting up Marcol's dramatics.
