Green Bay Packers (2-4) 13, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-6) 0
Sunday October 23rd 1977 (at Tampa Bay)
(TAMPA BAY) - Chester Marcol booted field goals of 40 and 44 yards and Eric Torkelson darted five yards for a touchdown as the Green Bay Packers snapped a fourgame losing streak by shutting out the error-prone Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13-0. After a scoreless opening quarter, the Packers took a six-point lead on Marcol's two second-period field goals. A blocked kick and three successive penalties against Tampa in the third quarter gave Green Bay the ball at the Bucs' seven-yard line. Torkelson gained two yards, then sprinted the last five for the touchdown that sealed Tampa's fate and their 20th straight loss. That scoring drive started when Dave Green's punt from the Packers' 49-yard line was blocked by DB Jim Gueno and Green Bay took over at Tampa's 24-yard line. Three five-yard penalties against the luckless Bucs gave the Packers the first down that kept their scoring drive alive.
