Oakland Raiders (6-1) 18, Green Bay Packers (3-4) 14
Sunday October 24th 1976 (at Oakland)
(OAKLAND) - Ken Stabler's three second-quarter touchdown passes, including the longest of his career on an 88-yard play to Cliff Branch, gave the Oakland Raiders an 18-14 victory over Green Bay in a penalty-filled game. The underdog Packers drew 17 penalties including those refused by Oakland and trailed 18-7 after three periods. But Willard Harrell ran four yards for a Green Bay touchdown with 6:34 left in the game and it took an interception by Oakland CB Skip Thomas at the Raiders' 19-yard line to stop a final Green Bay drive. Stabler increased his NFL-leading touchdown pass total to 14 as he hit TE Dave Casper on a 27-yarder, Branch on the longest bomb, and Fred Biletnikoff on a 10-yard play. The Oakland quarterback totaled 202 yards passing in the first half but had little success in the second. Packers' quarterback Lynn Dickey, who fired a 57-yard touchdown pass to Ken Payne in the first quarter, aimed for Rich McGeorge on his final attempt of the game. The tight end slipped and fell near the right sideline and Thomas was there to make the crucial interception.
