Green Bay Packers (4-5-1) 23, San Francisco 49ers (3-7) 16
Sunday November 9th 1980 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Gerry Ellis rushed for 83 yards, including an 8-yard burst for Green Bay's go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and Lynn Dickey passed for 244 yards to lead the Packers to a 23-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Ellis' touchdown, set up by a 37-yard pass from Dickey to James Lofton, broke a 13-13 tie with 14:57 to play. The 49ers, who dropped to 3-7 with their seventh successive defeat, closed to within 20-16 when Ray Wersching kicked a 24-yard field goal with 10:39 left. However, S Johnnie Gray preserved the victory for Green Bay when he recovered a Lenvil Elliott fumble at the Packer 22 and returned 30 yards. Due to injuries, the Packers were forced to play a unique 3-1-7 defensive alignment, with James Lofton playing in the secondary.
