Green Bay 24, NEW ORLEANS 20
Baltimore 29, SEATTLE 14 - The Colts got first-half TDs on short runs by Don McCauley and Roosevelt Leaks and their defense held Seattle in check throughout the second half in an impressive debut. Bert Jones scissored Seattle's secondary with 220 yards passing, 21 of those yards worth a TD to Roger Carr.
NEW ENGLAND 21, Kansas City 17 - Darryl Stingley scored twice, on a 34-yard reverse play and a 21-yard pass from Steve Grogan, then Jess Phillips ran 11 yards for the third period TD that completed New England's comeback victory over Kansas City, which had built a 14-0 first-period lead.
Cleveland 13, CINCINNATI 3 - Brian Sipe is the newest riverboat gambler among NFL quarterbacks. On the third play, Sipe threw from his end zone a completed a 43-yard sideline pattern to WR Dave Logan. Don Cockroft kicked FGs of 41 and 25 yards and Greg Pruitt stand-in Larry Poole scored on a 12-yard run for the Browns' TD.
Dallas 16, MINNESOTA 10
Miami 13, BUFFALO 0 - Seven Buffalo fumbles were more than enough for Miami, which still struggled to beat the Bills on Norm Bulaich's 20-yard TD burst and Garo Yepremian's field goals of 32 and 37. Linebackers Steve Towle, Mike Kolen and Larry Gordon anchored a rock-ribbed Miami defense that held O.J. Simpson to 71 yards.
CHICAGO 30, Detroit 20
HOUSTON 20, NY Jets 0 - Don Hardeman and Dan Pastorini scored from one-yard out and Houston's snorting 3-4 defense smothered the Jets. Pastorini completed 20 of 32 passes.
ATLANTA 17, Los Angeles 6 - Joe Namath, who completed half his 30 passes for 141 yards, and lost 33 when he was sacked three times, threw a 27-yard TD pass to Harold Jackson for the game's first TD. Then it was all Atlanta - one-yard TD dives by RB Haskell Stanback and QB Scott Hunter and a 33-yard FG by  Nick Mike-Mayer.

SUPER BOWL 12 (January 15, 1978 at New Orleans)
DALLAS COWBOYS (14-2) 27, DENVER BRONCOS (14-2) 10 - The Cowboys evened their Super Bowl record at 2-2 by defeating Denver before a sellout crowd of 75,583, plus 102,010,000 television viewers, the largest audience ever to watch a sporting event. Dallas converted two interceptions into 10 points and Efren Herrera added a 35-yard field goal for a 13-0 halftime advantage. In the third period Craig Morton engineered a drive to the Cowboys' 30 and Jim Turner's 47-yard FG made the score 13-3. After an exchange of punts, Butch Johnson made a spectacular diving catch in the end zone to complete a 45-yard pass from Roger Staubach and put the Cowboys ahead 20-3. Following Rick Upchurch's 67-yard kickoff return, Norris Weese guided the Broncos to a touchdown to cut the Dallas lead to 20-10. Dallas clinched the victory when running back Robert Newhouse tossed a 29-yard touchdown pass to Golden Richards with 7:04 remaining in the game. It was the first pass thrown by Newhouse
since 1975. Harvey Martin and Randy White, who were named co-most valuable players, led the Cowboys' defense, which recovered four fumblesand intercepted four passes.
