Washington Redskins 20, Green Bay Packers (0-2) 12
PRE-SEASON - Friday August 11th 1978 (at Washington)
(WASHINGTON) - Quarterback Joe Theismann survived a second-half battering by Green Bay's defensive line and hit Tommy Reamon, a forgotten star of the defunct World Football League, with a 15- yard touchdown pass that cinched a Washington preseason victory Friday night. Theismann's strike to the diminutive running back late in the fourth quarter capped a Redskin 62-yard drive in which Reamon repeatedly contributed with off-tackle bursts of 5 to 7 yards. Reamon played with Redskin Coach Jack Pardee with the Orlando Blazers in the WFL, then followed him to Chicago and Washington. The Packers pulled close early in the second half when Dave Roller dumped Theismann for a safety and another sack pinned the Redskins deep in their own territory. David Whitehurst then hit James Lofton with a 29-yard pass over the arms of Redskin defender Gerard Williams, and big fullback Barty Smith then plunged into the end zone from one yard out to bring the Packers to within 13-12. Theismann, however, engineered the drive capped by his second touchdown pass of the night.
