Bart Starr Fired As Head Coach (December 19, 1983)
(GREEN BAY) - Nearly nine years to the day after he was hired as coach of the Green Bay Packers, Bart Starr, one of the great players in the team's history, was fired after failing to get the team into the National Football League playoffs this season. Starr, given the job on Christmas Eve in 1974, was dismissed by club President Judge Robert Parins. When he was hired, Starr quoted from Winston Churchill. On the day he was fired, Starr, a history minor at the University of Alabama, quoted from Theodore Roosevelt. "It's not the critic that counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or whether the doer of deeds could have done them better," he said. "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, and often comes up short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause. And who, if at best in the end, knows the triumph of higher treatment and high achievement. And who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his soul shall never be with those cold and timid ones who know neither victory nor defeat." Parrins told Starr of his decision early Monday. "This kind of decision could not be predicated on emotion." Parins said at a news conference at Lambeau Field. He said that Starr "epitomizes the Green Bay Packers He's got a great Packer image " The decision came one day after the Packers lost 23-21 to the Chicago Bears on the final weekend of regular season play to finish 8-8. If the Packers had won, they would have been in the playoffs. Parins would not say if Starr would have been dismissed as coach if the team had reached postseason play. "Probably not, in terms of today," he said. "Obviously, if we'd been in the playoffs, we wouldn't have been here today." In addition to Starr, the contracts of the entire coaching staff were not renewed. They were Bob Schnelker (offensive coordinator), John Meyer (defensive coordinator), John Brunner (offensive backfield), Lew Carpenter (receivers), Ross Fichtner (defensive backfield), Monte Kiffin (linebacker), Ernie McMillan (offensive line), Bill Meyers (offensive line), Dick Rehbein (special teams) and Richard "Doc" Urich (defensive line). "The decision, while difficult, is not made out of emotion or frustration but on an overall evaluation of the needs of the franchise," Parins said in a statement. "We feel the position of head coach needs a fresh look." For Starr, 49, the decision boiled down to the team's record. "I haven't enjoyed enough victories here so I'm being relieved of my duties," he said. During his nine-year tenure, the Packers were 52-76-2. His best seasons were in 1978 (8-7-1) and 1982 (5-3-1). His only team to make the playoffs was in the strike-shortened 1982 season. It was the first Packers' team to reach postseason play since 1972. "Our won-lost record hasn't been commensurate with the growth we've had since I've been here," Starr said. DE Ezra Johnson, who has been with the Packers since 1977, said the firing "took me by surprise. I really didn't expect it."
Forrest Gregg Hired As Head Coach (December 24, 1983)
(GREEN BAY) - Forrest Gregg, who has patterned his career after that of the legendary Vince Lombardi, returned to the scene of his former coach's greatest triumphs Saturday when he signed a five-year contract to coach the Green Bay Packers. Gregg, 50, replaces Bart Starr, another of the stars who led Lombardi's Packers to greatness in the 1960s, who was fired after nine frustrating seasons at the helm of the Green Bay franchise. "I appreciate the opportunity to come back to Green Bay," Gregg said in a conference telephone call from Cincinnati. "The five-year contract gives me an opportunity to assess the talent on the football team and decide what we need to become a winner. We don't just have to look for the moment." When asked if this was the best coaching situation he had ever inherited, Gregg said "absolutely " "I think this is a typical team," he said. "They're obviously very strong on the offense. The team needs defensive help and I think we can get some of that help immediately." Packers' President Robert J. Parins made the announcement at a press conference at the team headquarters. Parins said the Packers had learned of Gregg's interest late Tuesday. On Wednesday they received permission from Cincinnati's Assistant General Manager Mike Brown to talk with Gregg. Gregg, whose tough stance in imitation of Lombardi, was said to be the cause of his failure in two previous coaching jobs, talked to a number of Packer officials before the deal was finalized Friday at a meeting in Chicago, Parins said.

1983 IN REVIEW
The Green Bay Packer offense in 1983 was running on high octane fuel all season. But the defense broke down on more than enough occastions to leave the Packers a .500 team at 8-8.
The step back from the playoffs in 1982 meant the end of the Bart Starr era in Green Bay. Lynn Dickey, Gerry Eillis, James Lofton, Paul Coffman and John Jefferson led an offense which
rang up 52 touchdowns, 429 points and 6,172 yards. Ellis became the first Packer to have more than 500 yards rushing and receiving in a season. Dickey cracked the 4,000-yard mark
with 4,458 yards and 32 touchdowns. The defensive numbers were equally as large -  50 touchdowns, 439 points and 6,403 yards. The defense gave up more than 300 yards in 14
games and 400 yards in 8 contests. Facing a must win the season finale to win the a wildcard berth, Green Bay saw Chicago defeat them 23-21 on a Bob Thomas field goal with 10
seconds left. Bart Starr was fired as head coach the next day.
BART STARR AND THE ARIZONA FIREBIRDS
It was the final game of the 1983 season, and the Bart Starr era. The Packers led for most of the contest in one of the coldest games ever played at Soldier Field. With less than a minute
remaining, Jim McMahon drove Chicago down the field against one of the worst defenses in the NFL and Bob Thomas kicked the winning field goal, while Starr sat on his timeouts and
watched his team out of the playoffs. The Packer legend was was fired the next day. Starr would never return to the NFL in a coaching capacity, but he did not walk away from football. In
fact, he tried to come back with a team that did not even exist when he was fired. Arizona NFL Expansion Limited was formed in 1980, and included such supporters as former AFL
Commissioner Joe Foss. The group spent more than $2 million trying to convince the NFL to place an expansion team in Phoenix. In February 1983, the group signed a lease agreement
with the Gila Indian Community for 500 acres on the Gila River Reservation, 15 miles south of Phoenix. Organizer Bob Whitlow said his group had hopes to construct a privately financed
domed stadium, seating 72,000. On January 13, 1984, less than three weeks after he was fired in Green Bay, Starr was named the head coach and director of operations for the Firebirds.
In March 1984, Firebirds officials flew to Hawaii, hoping to have a chance to press their case to the NFL. Businessman Tom Stone, who wanted a majority interest in the proposed
franchise, joined the group, while Starr stayed behind to deal with other business interests.  The Firebirds were nearly driven to extinction in the fall of 1984, when Eagles owner Leonard
Tose flirted with the idea of moving his team to Phoenix. Faced with $42 million in debts, Tose had a deal in place to sell part of the team in return for a $45 million loan and a move to the
desert. Commissioner Pete Rozelle stepped in and arranged financing for Tose and the team stayed. By 1987, it appeared there was a chance the NFL would consider the Firebirds' bid,
although there were two other groups also bidding for a team. Starr's group hosted a nearly sold-out exhibition game in August 1987 between the Packers and the Denver Broncos at Sun
Devil Stadium in Tempe. The dream died for good on January 15, 1988, when St. Louis Cardinals owner Bill Bidwell announced he was moving the team to Phoenix. In February 1988, it
was mentioned in some media reports that the Bart Starr-John Colbrunn-Joe Foss group was not dead yet, and could turn up in another city, but it was never to be. That July, the younger of Bart's two sons, Bret, then age 24, was living in Tampa, recovering from a cocaine addiction. After not hearing from him for several days, Bart flew to Florida and found his son dead on the dining room floor. Police said that Bret had died three or four days earlier from cardiac arrhythmia, a complication from his addiction.

G - Green Bay M - Milwaukee
(GREEN BAY) - Matt Bahr kicked his fifth field goal, a 45-yarder with 28 seconds to play, to lift the Browns over the Packers. The Browns drove 52 yards in 10 plays to set up Bahr's winning kick after rookie kicker Eddie Garcia had booted a 55-yard field goal, longest in Green Bay history, to put the Packers ahead 20-18 with 2:53 left. A 28-yard pass from reserve quarterback Paul McDonald to Dan Fulton set up Bahr's winning kick. Garcia, who spent all but one game last season on the injured reserve list, kicked his second field goal to cap a 42-yard, seven-play drive that started on the Packers 20 with 6 minutes left. Garcia's field goal surpassed a 53-yarder by Jan Stenerud against Tampa Bay on Nov. 21, 1981.

(ST. LOUIS) - Mike McCoy sprinted 64 yards to score with a pass interception and Harlan Huckleby gathered in his second touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter, lifting the Packers Saturday night over the St. Louis Cardinals. McCoy's touchdown came with 4:53 remaining, offsetting a 27-26 lead by St. Louis. Huckleby scored less than 2 minutes later on Rich Campbell's pass after Mark Murphy recovered a fumble of Green Bay's ensuing kickoff. Until McCoy stepped in front of his errant throw, 39-year-old Jim Hart had passed impressively against the Packer defense.

(HOUSTON) - Green Bay's Jan Stenerud kicked a 42-yard field goal with 9:05 remaining in an overtime period to complement a five-touchdown performance by QB Lynn Dickey and rally the Packers to an exhausting 41-38 victory over Houston. Dickey threw four first-half touchdown passes and added a fifth that tied the score late in the game, but had to give way to backup David Whitehurst to start the overtime because of a recurring back injury. The Packers took the kickoff to start the overtime from the Packer 17 to the Houston 24 to set up Stenerud's game-winner.

(GREEN BAY) - Franco Harris ran for 118 yards and one touchdown and Frank Pollard added 90 yards and another score to lead a punishing ground game that carried the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 25-21 decision over the Green Bay Packers. It marked the 43rd game that Harris broke the 100-yard threshold, and the yardage also put him over the 11,000-yard mark for his career. Harris' performance overshadowed another brilliant afternoon by Packer QB Lynn Dickey, who fired three touchdown strikes to James Lofton, and finished the day 13 of 19 passes for 283 yards. Lofton caught five balls for 169 yards. His three touchdowns marked the first time a receiver caught as many against Pittsburgh since Miami's possessive Paul Warfield turned the trick in 1971. The Steelers erased a 14-13 halftime deficit by rolling 64 yards in 12 plays to set up a 30-yard field goal by Gary Anderson at 6:03 of the third quarter. After forcing Green Bay to punt, Pittsburgh took over at their own 9-yard line and Cliff Stoudt, mixing some pass plays into the Steelers relentless ground attack, brought the Steelers to the 2 in 11 plays. From there, Frank Pollard, who finished with 90 yards on 20 carries, busted over to give Pittsburgh a 23-14 lead.

(MILWAUKEE) - Jan Stenerud kicked a 36-yard field goal with one second left, lifting the Green Bay Packers to a 27-24 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The winning kick was set up when the Rams' Eric Dickerson fumbled the hall and the Packers' Byron Braggs recovered at the Los Angeles 19 with 29 seconds to play. Lynn Dickey then downed the ball on the next play, and Green Bay called time out with five seconds left for Stenerud to try his kick. Dickey completed 22 of 36 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown while the Rams' Vince Ferragamo hit on 20 of 30 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown. The Rams who trailed 17-0 at one point, had a chance to win the game with 2:10 remaining but Chuck Nelson's 27-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Gary Lewis. Trailing 24-17, the Packers had tied the score early in the fourth period on Eddie Lee Ivery's 4-yard touchdown run, his second of the game. Stenerud's extra point was tipped by Jack Youngblood, but hit the crossbar and dropped over to tie the score with 11:10 remaining.

(NEW YORK) - A goal-line stand, Ali Haji-Sheikh's team-record 56-yard field goal and a wave of third quarter turnovers by the bomb-prone Green Bay Packers gave the New York Giants a 27-3 win on Monday night. The goal-line stand in the second period preserved New York's 7-3 lead built on Rob Carpenter's tackle-busting 14-yard run. Haji-Sheikh's booming kick made it 10-3 just before the half, then three fumbles and an interception on Green Bay's first four possessions of the third period wrought havoc with the Pack attack and helped New York roll up 17 more points. Terry Jackson picked up Eddie Lee Ivery's fumble on one bounce and sprinted 35 yards for a touchdown 1:49 into the decisive third period, Haji-Sheikh's 32-yard field goal followed Lynn Dickey's fumble and Giants' QB Scott Brunner passed 27 yards to Earnest Gray for the score that capped the Giants' biggest quarter of the season. Green Bay, stonewalled when Gary Lewis failed to sweep in on a fourth-and-1 with 5 minutes to go in the second quarter, was limited to Jan Stenerud's 20-yard field goal that opened the scoring in the first period. Scott Brunner's passes of 21 yards to Zeke Mowatt and 13 yards to Earnest Gray and an 11-yard run by Carpenter highlighted the 79-yard, nine-play drive capped by Carpenter's run. The Giants' defense was faced with the prospect of trying to stop one of the NFL's more potent passing attacks - Dickey's bombs to James Lofton, John Jefferson and TE Paul Coffman.

(GREEN BAY) - Green Bay's Phillip Epps returned a punt 90 yards, Jessie Clark had a 75-yard pass reception and Mike Douglass returned a fumble 35 yards, all scoring plays in a league record 49-point first half, as the Packers coasted to a 55-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The first-half explosion bettered the previous mark of 45 that the Packers scored against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 12, 1967. The team mark for most points in a game came in a 57-21 victory over the Detroit Lions on Oct. 7,1945. Jan Stenerud also benefitted from the scoring, kicking seven extra points and two field goals to move into second place past Jim Turner on the all-time NFL scoring list with 1,446. Lynn Dickey completed 10 of 14 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns in the first two quarters. He threw one more incomplete pass before giving way to David Whitehurst early in the third quarter. James Lofton, with four receptions for 112 yards, became the fifth receiver in Green Bay's 63-year history to catch 300 passes in a career. The Bucs were playing without three starters in their defensive secondary, both offensive guards and James Wilder, and did finally score an offensive touchdown late in the game. The Packers defense was ranked last (28th) in the National Football League at this point. After the game, Tampa Bay head coach John McKay tore into his team in a 15-second rant after the game. "I was totally disgusted by the football exhibition of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers," McKay said. "We could do nothing right against one of the great NFL defenses." When Milwaukee Sentinel reporter Bud Lea, then 54, tried to ask McKay a question, the Tampa Bay coach shouted: "Get the hell away from me before I punch you in the mouth."

(DETROIT) - Rookie FB James Jones ran for three touchdowns and Eric Hipple passed for two others as the Detroit Lions beat the Bay Packers 38-14, snapping a four-game losing streak. Jones, the Lions' No. 1 draft pick, churned out 64 yards on 19 carries with TD runs of 1, 13 and 1 yard. Jones' three touchdowns tied a club record shared by six others. The Packers, who last week embarrassed Tampa Bay 55-14, were held in check by a Detroit defense that intercepted two passes and recovered a Green Bay rumble. Hipple completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 235 yards with no interceptions. Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey hit on 21 of 37 for 214 and one TD. Jones capped a 78-yard, 14-play drive with a spinning 1-yard TD dive at 11:47 of the first quarter and raced around his own left end for a 13-yard score at 6:47 of the second quarter. Leonard Thompson took a Hipple toss at the 6-yard line and spun away from Green Bay S Mark Murphy to complete an 18-yard scoring play with 27 seconds remaining in the second quarter as the Lions opened a 24-0 halftime advantage.

(GREEN BAY) - Lynn Dickey threw for three touchdowns and tossed a 56-yard pass to Gerry Ellis to set up Jan Stenerud's 20-yard field goal with 54 seconds to play Monday night, giving the Green Bay Packers a 48-47 victory over Washington. The lead changed five times in the final 15 minutes, and Washington's Mark Moseley. who had kicked four field goals in the game, missed to the right a 39-yarder with three seconds to go. Dickey threw scoring strikes of 36 and nine yards to TE Paul Coffman and 31 yards to FB Mike Meade, the last one giving Green Bay a 45-40 lead with 7:37 remaining. Joe Theismann drove the Redskins 72 yards in nine plays, hitting Joe Washington for a five-yard TD pass with 2:50 left. It was Washington's second scoring catch of the game. But three plays after the ensuing kickoff, Dickey flipped his decisive pass to Ellis, who caught it in the right flat, broke away from a platoon of defenders and raced down the sideline before being caught at the Redskins eight. The Packers ran the ball into the line three times, running down the clock as well, before Stenerud came through. Dickey completed 22 of 30 passes for 387 yards in the game. Theismann completed 27 of 39 passes for 398 yards in one of the great shootouts in recent years. The Packers struck early as LB Mike Douglass recovered Joe Washington's fumble following a pass completion and sprinted 22 yards for a touchdown just 67 seconds into the game. The Redskins tied it with 4:25 gone when Riggins fumbled into the end zone and TE Clint Didier recovered for Washington. The six-play, 55-yard drive was highlighted by Theismann's passes of 34 yards to Art Monk and 14 yards to Charlie Brown. Green Bay went in front again at 10-7 with 6:34 remaining in the opening period on Jan Stenerud's 47-yard field goal, but Washington tied it again when Mark Moseley kicked a 42-yarder. The Redskins had a second-and-goal at the Green Bay 4 when Theismann was sacked sucessively by LB John Anderson and DE Ezra Johnson, pushing Washington back to the 24 before Moseley kicked. Green Bay went into the locker room at halftime leading 24-20 as Dickey threw touchdown passes of 36 and nine yards to Coffman. The Redskins' points in the period came on Riggins one-yard touchdown run and Moseley's 28-yard field goal. The 36-yard pass to Coffman came on the first play of the second quarter and capped a four-play, 74-yard drive. The 95-point barrage remains the highest-scoring game in MNF history. The two teams combined for 1,025 net yards, 771 yards passing, 56 first downs, and five leads in the fourth quarter. For more on the game, click here.

(GREEN BAY) - Benny Ricardo kicked a 32-yard field goal 5:05 into overtime and Ted Brown rushed for 179 yards on 29 carries to boost the Vikings. Green Bay got first possession in the overtime, but gave up the ball on four downs on Bucky Scribner's 34-yard punt to the Vikings' 42. Minnesota used seven plays, including four runs for 17 yards by Brown, to move the ball to the Packers' 15 before Ricardo's winning kick. Ricardo's 32-yarder overshadowed a late drive by the Packers that saw Lynn Dickey complete a 4-yard pass to Mike Meade with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game, 17-17. Brown gave the Vikings a 17-3 lead with five minutes left in the third quarter on a 1-yard run. He carried the ball eight times for 39 yards in the 13-play drive that covered 73 yards and consumed seven minutes and 14 seconds. The Vikings took a 7-0 lead with 3:10 remaining in the first quarter on Steve Dils' 13-yard pass to Sammy White. Dils, who completed 16 of 27 passes for 205 yards, also hit passes of 12 yards to White and 14 to Sam McCullum in the six-play, 60-yard drive. The Vikings increased their lead to 10-0 with 12:36 remaining in the half on Ricardo's 44-yard field goal. Green Bay trimmed the margin to 10-3 with 7:51 left in the half on Jan Stenerud's 48-yard field goal.

(CINCINNATI) - FB Pete Johnson rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns in his first start of the season, and QB Turk Schonert threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Cincinnati Bengals crushed the Green Bay Packers 34-14. Cincinnati, 3-6, scored four first-half touchdowns and coasted to its to second straight victory. The Packers fell to 4-5 with their second consecutive loss. Cincinnati took advantage of the NFL's worst defense, scoring on four of their six first half possessions for a 27-7 lead. One drive ended with a fumble on the Green Bay 7. The teams traded first quarter touchdowns, with Green Bay holding a 7-6 lead on the strength of Gary Lewis' block of the extra-point try by Jim Breech. The Bengals then rolled off three unanswered second quarter touchdowns en route to its highest score of the season. Johnson, making his first start of the season following a four-game suspension by the NFL for cocaine purchases, scored Cincinnati's first two touchdowns on runs of one and five yards. He helped set up his second touchdown by carrying six times for 22 yards in a 12-play, 54-yard drive. Jonnson, who had carried just 32 times in two previous games while working back into shape, lugged the ball 26 tunes for his 112 yards.

(MILWAUKEE) - When the Green Bay Packers focused their attention on the running game, they figured it would be in stopping the Cleveland Browns. Little did the Packers realize that their own running game would be a factor in the 35-21 win in Milwaukee County Stadium. The Packer defense, led by LB Mike Anderson's eight tackles, held Cleveland to just 119 yards rushing. And the Packer offense, which had been averaging only 96.2 yards rushing a game, picked up 154 yards on the ground. "Taking Cleveland out of the running game was our main objective," said Green Bay Coach Bart Starr. "Cleveland is capable of running the ball against anyone. That (rushing defense) has been our nemesis lately." But Starr wasn't surprised by the rushing game, which was keyed by Gerry Ellis' 86 yards on 17 carries and Jessie Clark's 50 on 12 rushes. Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey, who completed 20 of 33 passes for 228 yards and four touchdowns and who was intercepted three times, was appreciative of the running game. While the Browns were able to amass 365 passing yards, several key turnovers and mistakes knocked them out of scoring opportunities. Green Bay took a 7-0 lead with 3:08 left in the first quarter on Dickey's 18-yard scoring toss to John Jefferson. The 10-play, 89-yard drive started after LB Mike Douglass recovered Willis Adams' fumble, which had come after an 18-yard pass play from Paul McDonald. Another Cleveland mistake led to another Packers' score in the second period. On a fourth-and-two punting situation on the Cleveland 42, the Browns were penalized five yards for having 12 men on the field. Six plays later, including CB Rod Perry's pass interference at the 6, Dickey hit Paul Coffman on a four-yard strike. A third Green Bay touchdown came after Tim Lewis picked off a McDonald pass and returned it 46 yards to the Cleveland 22. Four plays later, with 1:46 to go in the half, Dickey flipped a 10-yard pass to Gary Lewis for the score and a 21-7 lead. Green Bay increased its lead to 28-7 in the third quarter on Dickey's two-yard pass to Ellis. Cleveland wasn't able to generate any offense until Coach Sam Rutigliano sent in Brian Sipe midway through the third quarter. The Browns' only points had come with 1:19 left in the first quarter on NT Bob Colic's 7-yard pass interception after Dickey's arm was hit by LB Chip Banks. Sipe, who completed 16 of 27 passes for 231 yards, cut the margin to 28-21 in the fourth quarter on a 20-yard pass to Bobby Jones at 3:47 and 19 yards to Dwight Walker at 13:35. Ellis gave Green Bay the clincher on a 25-yard run with 56 seconds to go in the game.

(MINNESOTA) - Lynn Dickey passed for two touchdowns. Jan Stenerud kicked two field goals and Greg Boyd sacked Minnesota QB Steve Dils for a safety as the Green Bay Packers beat the Vikings 29-21 and moved into a first-place tie in the Central Division. Dickey's touchdown passes covered 5 yards to John Jefferson in the second quarter and 19 yards to James Lofton in the fourth, his 23rd and 24th TD strikes of the season, tying a Packers' record. Stenerud's field goals covered 46 and 40 yards and Mike Meade ran 1 yard for Green Bay's other touchdown as the Packers and Vikings each left the field with a 6-5 record with five games remaining in the season. The Packers rolled up a 19-0 halftime lead, then survived a rally sparked by Darrin Nelson, whose rushing and receiving set up Rickey Young's scoring runs of 1 and 4 yards, and a 4-yard touchdown burst by Tony Galbreath.

The photos below (from this great website) are from the Detroit-Green Bay game at Lambeau Field on November 20th. The final photo is the game-winning field goal by Lions K Eddie Murray
(MILWAUKEE) - Eddie Murray kicked a 37-yard field goal with 6:30 left in overtime to lift the Detroit Lions to a 23-20 win over Green Bay, knocking the Packers out of first place in the NFC Central. The victory, combined with Minnesota's 17-14 triumph over Pittsburgh, moved the Lions into a second-place tie with the Packers. Minnesota leads with a 7-5 record, followed by Detroit and Green Bay with 6-6 marks. Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey, who didn't play in the second half after suffering a mild concussion, completed touchdown passes of 6 yards to John Jefferson and 1 to Paul Coffman. He set a Packers' season TD-passing mark of 26. The previous mark of 24 was set by Cecil Isbell in 1942. Both of Green Bay's touchdowns came after Lions punter Mike Black mishandled snaps.

(ATLANTA) - Kenny Johnson returned an interception 31 yards for his second touchdown of the game to give the Atlanta Falcons a 47-41 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers. Johnson's game-winning return came 2:13 into the extra period. He also scored on a 26-yard interception return with 1:57 left in regulation to give the Falcons a 41-34 lead before Green Bay marched 85 yards to score on Gerry Ellis' 4-yard run three seconds from the end of regulation play. Atlanta overcame an early 21-0 deficit behind the play of William Andrews, who scored three touchdowns and rushed for 129 yards on 20 carries. The outcome left both teams with 6-7 records with three weeks remaining in the season. Andrews scored on runs of 20 and 1 yards and on a 6-yard pass from quarterback Mike Moroski, filling in for the injured Steve Bartkowski and making the first start of his five-year NFL career. Moroski, who completed 22 of 35 passes for 303 yards, also hurled a 50-yard touchdown strike to Stacey Bailey on the final play of the first half.

(GREEN BAY) - Jan Stenerud kicked a 19-yard field goal with three seconds left to lift Green Bay to a 31-28 victory over the Bears, keeping the Packers' playoff hopes alive. Green Bay remained in contention for the NFC Central title. Stenerud's kick came after the Bears' Dennis McKinnon returned a punt 59 yards for a touchdown to tie the game 28-28 with 1:50 to go. The game-winner came after the Packers had driven to the 3 from their own 22. The big play in the drive was a 67-yard pass from Lynn Dickey to James Lofton to the Bears' 6. After two running plays by Jessie Clark took the ball to the 3, Stenerud came on for the clincher. The Packers broke out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to some big-yardage plays by Ellis. Ellis finished with 141 yards. On Green Bay's first possession, Ellis blasted through the left side of the line and went 71 yards to the Bears' 9. One play later, Harlan Huckleby went around right end for the touchdown for a 7-0 lead only 4:45 into the game. Later in the period Dickey connected on a 5-yard scoring toss to Paul Coffman with 1:57 to go for a 14-0 lead. One of the key plays was a 40-yard pass over the middle to Ellis to the Chicago 33. The Bears got back into the game 11 seconds later when Jim McMahon hit Willie Gault on an 87-yard scoring strike. Green Bay increased its lead to 21-7 on Ellis' 12-yard run with 3.01 left in the half. Chicago trimmed the score to 21-14 when Matt Suhey blasted into the end zone from the 1 with 16 seconds left in the half. Ray Nitschke's number 66 was officially retired at the half.

(TAMPA BAY) - Green Bay's Jan Stenerud kicked his way into the record book Monday night, and in the process kept the Packers' playoff hopes alive. "Believe it or not, gentlemen, I was nervous," said Stenerud, whose 338th career field goal and fourth of the game gave Green Bay a 12-9 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game-winner came 5:07 into the extra session after the 17-year veteran, who passed George Blanda's NFL field goal mark of 335 with a 32-yarder late in the third quarter, forced the overtime with a 23-yard boot with 28 seconds left in regulation. The victory boosted the Packers' record to 8-7 and moved Coach Bart Starr's team into a first-place tie with Detroit in the NFC Central Division. Green Bay took the kickoff to start the overtime and drove from its own 29 to the Tampa six on a drive that included Harlan Huckleby's 20- yard run that set up the winning field goal which was kicked on second down. Stenerud's tying kick came at the end of a 13- play, 75-yard drive that QB Lynn Dickey launched after Tampa Bay's Bill Capece missed a 35-yard field goal attempt. The key plays on Green Bay's tying drive were a 24-yard pass from Dickey to James Lofton and a 7-yarder to Huckleby, along with the roughing the passer penalty on Tampa Bay DE end John Cannon that gave the Packers a first down at the Buccaneer eight. Tampa Bay had taken a 9-6 lead on Jack Thompson's 4-yard scoring flip to Adger Armstrong with 7:33 remaining, but Capece missed the extra point. After the game, Tampa head coach John McKay remarked that "Capece is Kaput" and sure enough, he never played again for the Buccaneers. The go-ahead touchdown came at the end of a 10-play, 65-yard drive that Thompson, who has thrown eight TD passes in his last three games, fueled with completions of 20 and 19 yards to Theo Bell. Stenerud kicked a 35-yard field goal 2:55 into the game to give Green Bay a 3-0 lead. His 32-yarder with 42 seconds left in the third quarter gave the Packers a 6-3 lead. Capece kicked a 22-yard field goal in the second quarter. Dickey completed 24 of 36 passes for 278 yards and became the fifth man in NFL history to surpass the 4,000-yard mark in a season. Dickey went over the plateau with a 22-yard completion to tight end Gary Lewis late in the second quarter, but had an apparent 36-yard scoring strike to Phillip Epps wiped out by a holding call against OT Karl Swanke three plays later. The New York Jets' Joe Namath was the first man to pass for better than 4,000 yards throwing for 4,007 in 1967. San Diego's Dan Fouts, who set an NFL record, of 4,802 yards in 1981, has done it twice, while Cleveland's Brian Sipe passed for 4,132 in 1980, the year Fouts accomplished the feat for the first time with 4,715. Most people remember this game for it being Howard Cosell's last game on Monday Night Football.

(CHICAGO) - Bob Thomas' 22-yard field goal with 10 seconds remaining in frigid cold weather gave the Chicago Bears a 23- 21 victory over Green Bay, and spoiled the Packers' playoff hopes. The kick was a wild climax to the rivalry between the two NFC teams, which finished at 8-8, and capped a 54-yard drive following Green Bay's 64-yard march ending with Lynn Dickey's 5-yard pass to Paul Coffman. Thomas' kick capped a 58-yard, 10-play drive that began with 3:08 left, following Green Bay's 64-yard march. The Green Bay drive, in turn, came after Chicago had forged ahead 20-14 as Bear QB Jim McMahon dashed 6 yards up the middle on a keeper play. A mishandled snap on the ensuing point-after attempt enabled Green Bay to take the 1-point lead. With game-time temperature at 3 degrees and the wind whipping in from Lake Michigan, the wind-chill factor was minus 28 and played a decisive role in the ten turnovers, seven of which came on interceptions.
