Green Bay Packers (0-0-1) 0, San Diego Chargers (0-0-1) 0 (Tie)
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 2nd 1980 (at Canton, OH)
(CANTON, OH) - Rolf Benirschke of San Diego and Green Bay's Tim Birney missed second half field goals Saturday before an electrical storm terminated the preseason game with six minutes remaining to play. The contest ended in a tie as NFL officials called a halt to play at 6:13 pm EDT and called off the game seven minutes after the Chargers and Packers had gone to their dressing rooms. San Diego had the ball on the Packers' 25-yard line when Don Weiss, executive director of the NFL, ordered the contest terminated. "We had called time out and were getting the field goal team ready," head coach Don Coryell said of a fourth-down situation. Benirschke missed his field goal try from 39 yards out with 29 seconds left in the third quarter. The ball hit the left upright and bounced back onto the field. Birney muffed his opportunity from 40 yards out. His attempt sailed wide to the left with 11:41 remaining in the game.
