Buffalo Bills 37, Green Bay Packers (2-2) 0
PRE-SEASON - Friday August 20th 1976 (at Buffalo)
(BUFFALO) - Quarterback Joe Ferguson, having signed a new contract earlier in the day, threw a pair of touchdown passes Friday night to lead the Buffalo Bills past the Packers Friday night. Ferguson, who signed the multi-year deal to kill speculation he was playing out his option, entered the game in the third quarter with Buffalo on top 16-0 and hit wide receiver Bob Chandler with scoring passes of nine and four yards. Gary Marangi, who has been Ferguson's backup the last two seasons, directed Buffalo to its first half lead. The Bills overpowered the Packers as they marched up and down Rich Stadium for 34 first downs while limiting Green Bay to seven. The final Bills' TD came on the last play of the game when Ike Harrison intercepted a pass by Green Bay's Dennis Shaw and ran it back 36 yards.
