Denver Broncos 17, Green Bay Packers (2-1) 7
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 22nd 1981 (at Denver)
(DENVER) - Rob Lytle ran for one touchdown, Matt Robinson threw for another and Fred Steinfort kicked a 23-yard field goal, leading the Broncos over the Packers. Although he was booed on one occasion when the Broncos were backed up deep in their own territory, Robinson's performance increased his chances of making the Bronco roster. The Bronco defense, showing its 1977 Super Bowl vigor, shut out the Green Bay offense. The Packers' only touchdown came in the first quarter when free safety Johnnie Gray caught a pass intended for Bronco tight end Ron Egloff and raced 65 yards down the sideline for a touchdown.
