Green Bay Packers (4-10) 22, Atlanta Falcons (4-10) 13
Sunday December 21st 1975 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Eric Torkelson and Barty Smith found plenty of running room, which raises the question whether the Green Bay Packers think they still have room for John Brockington. Brockington hopes so, but the one-time premier fullback doubts it. "We have to make changes, let's face it. I guess I'm trade bait," Brockington said after the Packers, sparked by 86 yards in 22 carries by Torkelson and 60 in 14 by Barty Smith, had closed their otherwise bleak season by defeating the Atlanta Falcons 22-13. Torkelson scored from 15 yards out after a 61-yard interception return by Perry Smith as the Packers took the lead to stay at 9-6 early in the second quarter. Barty Smith's one-yard touchdown run and three Joe Danelo field goals boosted the margin to 22-6 midway through the third quarter. An end zone interception by Al Matthews and a fumble recovery by Alden Roche blunted a Falcon rally led by rookie QB Steve Bartkowski, as both teams finished with 4-10 records. Another hero was John Hadl, who connected on 16 of 32 passes for 181 yards to set a Packer record for completions in a season with 191. And ex-Packer Dave Hampton was a hero in defeat for the Falcons, rushing for 61 yards for a season total of 1,002. That abundance of heroes left Brockington out in the cold - the 12 degree chill that benumbed he and most of his teammates who spent much of the day on the sidelines. Brockington, who had rushed lor 4,159 yards in his four previous NFL seasons, carried eight times for 12 yards Sunday for season totals of 434 yards in 144 tries. After the game, Packer fans tore down the goal posts.
