Green Bay Packers (1-0) 35, Los Angeles Rams (0-1) 23
Sunday September 12th 1982 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Lynn Dickey rifled two fourth-quarter touchdown passes 17 seconds apart to cap a Green Bay rally as the Packers surged to a 35- 23 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Dickey hit TE Paul Coffman with a 10-yard pass with 11:12 to play, moments after LB Guy Prather recovered a Robert Alexander fumble on a kick return. The TD gave the Packers a 28-23 lead. It came on the heels of a 15-yard scoring pass from Dickey to James Lofton as the Packers came to within 23-21 of the Rams, who led 23-0 at halftime. Dickey overcame a brilliant Los Angeles debut for quarterback Bert Jones, who completed 17 of 31 passes for 202 yards and one touchdown. The Rams acquired Jones in a trade with Baltimore during the preseason. The Packers preserved the victory when ILB George Cumby intercepted a Jones pass at the Packer 34 midway through the final period, and when OLB John Anderson picked off a Jones throw at the Packer 7-yard line with 1:33 left. Green Bay RB Eddie Lee Ivery, who rushed for 109 yards on 17 carries, capped the scoring with a 27-yard burst up the middle with 3:06 remaining. Green Bay performed the largest rally in team history, surpassing their 18-point comeback against the Lions in 1965. The Packers rang up 234 yards on offense in the final two quarters, and held the Rams to 117.
