Green Bay Packers (2-1) 16, New England Patriots 14
PRE-SEASON - Sunday August 15th 1976 (at New England)
(NEW ENGLAND) - The toe of Chester Marcol and a touchdown pass from Carlos Brown to Steve Odom enabled the Green Bay Packers to outlast the New England Patriots Sunday night. Marcol, who missed all but the opening game last season because of a leg injury, booted field goals of 37, 36 and 32 yards and kicked an extra point to lead the Packers' scoring. The kicks and Brown's 56-yard toss came in the first half of the game. The Patriots also completed their scoring in the first two quarters on a 46-yard pass from quarterback Steve Grogan to veteran Randy Vataha and an eight-yard burst up the middle by Sam Cunningham. Green Bay Coach Bart Starr alternated five running backs throughout the game but used Brown throughout. It was Brown's first start in 2 1/2 years with the Packers.
