Minnesota Vikings (7-4) 13, Green Bay Packers (2-9) 6
Sunday November 27th 1977 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Bob Lee passed 40 yards to Sammy White in swirling snow for Minnesota's go-ahead touchdown and Chuck Foreman darted and slid for 101 yards, leading the Vikings to a 13-6 win over the Packers. Fred Cox added field goals of 21 and 31 yards for the Vikings, 7-4, who lead Chicago by one game in the Central Division. The Packers slipped to 2-9 with their fifth consecutive defeat. The Vikings overcame a 6-0 deficit on the first play of the second quarter as White raced down the left sideline five yards ahead of CB Willie Buchanon, caught Lee's pass at the five and went in for the score. Cox' conversion gave the Vikings the lead to stay. Two plays later, the Vikings' Jeff Siemon recovered a Willard Harrell fumble at the Packer 43, setting up Cox' 21-yard field goal. The Vikings took over on their 30 late in the second quarter and drove behind Foreman's running to Cox' second field goal, one second before halftime. A 34-yard pass from David Whitehurst to Bert Askson carried to the Viking 5 in the third quarter. However, Bobby Bryant intercepted in the end zone. Jeff Wright recovered a fumble by Green Bay's Barty Smith at the Viking 11 with 4:04 to play. Whitehurst scored on a 3-yard bootleg in the first quarter after the Packers had recovered a fumble by Brent McClanahan at the Viking 21. Cox climbed past former Cleveland star Lou Groza into second place on the NFL's all-time scoring list with 1,347 points. George Blanda leads with 2,002. Despite the miserable conditions, Lee completed his first five passes for 68 yards.
