Green Bay Packers (3-6) 34, Seattle Seahawks (2-7) 24
Sunday November 1st 1981 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - David Whitehurst, booed during his infrequent home appearances earlier in the season, made the most of his first start in nearly two years. Whitehurst threw two first-quarter interceptions, but then had the Lambeau field crowd of 49,467 cheering as the Packers broke a three-game skid. The Packers took a 28-24 lead when Lofton caught Whitehurst's 6-yard pass over the middle, broke to the right sideline and raced the remaining 32 yards to score with 1:02 left in the third quarter. The Seahawks, who had taken a 24-21 lead earlier in the period on a 54-yard field goal by Efren Herrera, dropped to 2-7. Jan Stenerud accounted for Green Bay's last 6 points with a 19-yard field goal with 1:58 to play and a 36-yard field goal with 41 seconds left. S John Harris gave the Seahawks a 7-0 lead when he intercepted a Whitehurst pass and returned 42 yards to score 4:13 into the game. But the Packers tied at 7-7 later in the first period when Whitehurst capped an 80-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Paul Coffman.
