New York Jets (3-1) 15, Green Bay Packers (3-1) 13
Sunday November 28th 1982 (at New York)
(NEW YORK) - Pat Leahy, victimized by two blown extra-point attempts, rebounded with a 25-yard field goal late in the third that gave the Jets a win over the Packers. "The first one, that was me," Leahy said of his first conversion attempt, which hooked to the left of the uprights. "The second one was blocked. I don't know if it would've been good." Bart Starr saw a difference between this game and last year's 28-3 loss to the Jets, which put New York in the playoffs and knocked Green Bay out of them. "The last time we came in here, the Jets beat us. They beat us bad," Starr said. "This time, we beat ourselves." The Packers' two touchdowns came on passes of 24 and 23 yards from Lynn Dickey to rookie WR Phillip Epps, the first giving them a 6-0 lead after Jan Stenerud's extra point hit the left upright, the second making it 13-6 at the half. The Jets, whose first score came on Richard Todd's 23-yard pass to Johnny "Lam" Jones, tying the score 6-6, cut Green Bay's lead to 13-12 at the 11:01 mark of the third quarter on Mike Augustyniak's 4-yard touchdown run. Leahy, whose first extra point was wide to the left, had this one blocked by TE Gary Lewis. But the Jets held Green Bay on its next possession; RB Freeman McNeil sprinted 36 yards to the Packers' 13-yard line, then Leahy kicked his game-winner with 50 seconds remaining in the quarter. The Jets drove to the Packers' 1-yard line early in the fourth quarter and had a Todd-to-Augustyniak scoring pass wiped out by offensive interference. New York then turned the ball over, and Green Bay drove from its 2 to the New York 32, but Stenerud was just short on a 50-yard field goal attempt with 4:56 to play. The Jets sold 60,372 tickets for the game, and 53,872 fans showed up in overcast, sprinkly weather. There were 6,500 no shows. In the game, Stan Blinka delivered a forearm to WR John Jefferson, which led to Bart Starr calling him a "hoodlum". Blinka was penalized, but not fined.
