Green Bay Packers (4-2-1) 20, Baltimore Colts (0-6-1) 20 (T)
Sunday December 19th 1982 (at Baltimore)
(BALTIMORE) - A young and spirited Baltimore Colts team fought the Packers for four quarters and an overtime to come away with a 20-20 tie and end a six-game losing streak. "A tie is not a loss. It's far from a victory but we could have conceivably lost this game except for the blocked field goal (in overtime)," said Green Bay Coach Bart Starr. But Baltimore Coach Frank Kush seemed to take little consolation in the outcome of the game, which was sent into overtime by Randy McMillan's 1-yard run with 82 seconds left in regulation. Kush did praise the play of his team's defense which worked hard to contain Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey. The Colts were unable to establish a running game agaist the Packers, gaining only 110 yards on the ground. Green Bay had a chance to win with less than two minutes left in overtime, but a 47-yard field goal attempt by Jan Stenerud was short. In their final possession, the Colts were unable to move the ball and the game marked the first tie of the strike-shortened season. Lynn Dickey completed 16-of-34 passes for 213 yards to lead the Green Bay offense and his counterpart, rookie Mike Pagel, completed 23-of-39 passes for 211 yards. Baltimore scored on field goals of 23 and 40 yards by newly acquired kicker Dan Miller, a 12-yard scoring strike from Pagel to Matt Bouza and McMillan's TD run. Green Bay scored on field goals of 25 and 40 yards by Stenerud, a 1-yard run by Eddie Lee Ivery and a 1-yard pass from Dickey to John Thompson. Late in the fourth quarter, the Colts, relying mainly on the pass, drove 55 yards on 12 plays to tie the game 20-20 on McMillan's scamper from a yard out. Seemingly stopped, McMillan bounced off would-be Green Bay tacklers and went around the left side for the score with 1:22 left, Pagel completed five passes for 49 yards in that drive.
