Sunday October 26th 1980 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Lynn Dickey threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Paul Coffman and 4 yards to Bill Larson to give Green Bay a 16-3 victory over Minnesota for the Packers' first home triumph over the Vikings in 15 years. The last time Green Bay defeated Minnesota at Lambeau Field came in 1965 when the Packers prevailed 24-19. Dickey threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Coffman and a 4-yard strike to Larson in the fourth quarter. Tom Birney kicked a 36-yard field goal in the third quarter. Rick Danmeier kicked a 47-yard field goal for the Vikings in the third quarter. Rookie Gerry Ellis put in the best performance by a Packer running back this year, gaining 76 yards on 13 carries. Packer RB Eddie Lee Ivery appeared to score another touchdown with a little more than two minutes left, but fumbled on the 1 and S Keith Nord recovered for Minnesota. The last time the two teams met in Lambeau was Nov. 26, 1978, and the game ended in a 10-10 tie. The Packers beat the Vikings 19-7 last year in Milwaukee.
