Green Bay Packers (1-0) 23, Cincinnati Bengals 20
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 6th 1977 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Chester Marcol kicked two 45-yard field goals in the last 1:14, including the game winner with one second to play, rallying the Green Bay Packers to a victory Saturday over the Cincinnati Bengals. Marcol's decisive kick came after the Packers got the ball back when defensive tackle Mike McCoy stripped the ball from rookie quarterback Tom Duniven at the Bengals' 38-yard line with 29 seconds left. Lynn Dickey passed for four yards to John Brockington and for five yards to Will Harrell to set up the winning kick. The Bengals took a 20-17 lead late in the third quarter on 60-yard scoring pass from John Reaves to Billy Brooks. But after Cincinnati interceptions blunted two previous scoring threats in the fourth quarter, the Packers took over at the Bengal 34 with 3:29 to play. They marched to position for Marcol's first 45-yarder behind an eight-yard run by Eric Torkelson.
