Detroit Lions (4-4) 27, Green Bay Packers (3-5) 6
Sunday October 31st 1976 (at Detroit)
(DETROIT) - Veteran Ray Jarvis enjoyed his finest day as a wide receiver by catching six Greg Landry passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Detroit Lions past the Green Bay Packers 27-6. Landry completed 12-of-19 passes for 211 yards and the two touchdowns. His 74-yard TD pass to Jarvis with 10:12 to play in the first quarter was the longest Lion score by passing or running in three seasons, since Landry threw an 86-yard scoring strike in 1973. When Jarvis caught a 13- yard scoring pass from Landry with 3:30 left in the first half, it hiked Detroit's lead to 24-3 and assured the Lions' vengeance for a 24-14 loss the Packers hung on them a month ago which cost Rick Forzano his job as head coach two days later.
