Denver Broncos (8-4) 16, Green Bay Packers (7-5) 3
Sunday November 19th 1978 (at Denver)
(DENVER) - Craig Morton awoke Denver's slumbering offense with a 14-yard touchdown strike to Haven Moses, and Rob Lytle rushed for more than 100 yards and another score, lifting the Broncos past Green Bay. Denver, which raised its record to 8-4, scored on its first two possessions in the second half to erase a 3-0 halftime deficit. Morton connected with Moses on a 31-yard pass play to help set up his scoring toss to a diving Moses in the rear of the end zone with 11:20 left in the third quarter Lytle carried six times for 40 yards on the Broncos' next series, scoring himself on a 2-yard slant off the left side with 2:44 left in the period. Green Bay's Chester Marcol, who earlier kicked a 19-yard field goal for the only score in the first half, missed from 35 and 27 yards out, thwarting two Packer scoring opportunities in the second half.
