Green Bay Packers (2-1) 7, Buffalo Bills 6
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 18th 1979 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Lynn Dickey, playing in his first game since Nov. 13, 1977, connected with James Lofton with 15 seconds left to give the Packers a victory over the Buffalo Bills Saturday night. The Packers improved their record to 2-1 while Buffalo's record dropped to 0-3. "I feel David (Whitehurst) is still the No. 1 quarterback." said Dickey. "I don't feel I'm able to go through a game and get away from people the way he's able to do." There was little question who was No 1 Saturday night. Whitehurst had only nine completions in 17 passes for 40 yards while Dickey completed 10-of- 19 for 126 yards and the winning touchdown.
