1985 IN REVIEW
Green Bay finished at .500 for the third consecutive season, despite a passing game (197.7 net yards per game, the worst since 1979) which was hurt by
the trade of John Jefferson to Cleveland and an injury-riddled season for Lynn Dickey. The 36-year old was demoted to second string for a time early in the
season and went out with an injury in Week 14. Jim Zorn and Randy Wright were mostly inefficient in moving the team. Dickey would leave after the 1985
campaign, when he could not agree on a new contract. Eddie Lee Ivery, Gerry Ellis and Jessie Clark led a running game which averaged 138 yards per
contest, the best since 1973. Ellis would end the season with a 5.49 yard per carry average, the best in team history. Lambeau Field also had a new look,
with 72 luxury boxes being added, increasing the capacity from 56,263 to 56,926.
THE BLIZZARD OF 1995
(SOURCE: BucPower.com) Week 13 was a trip to Lambeau Field to play the Packers, not exactly world-beaters at the time themselves. And it was snowing
in Green Bay. Hard. And getting worse. Six inches of snow fell the day before the game, six inches fell during the game and another foot and a half the
following day. It was the worst weather Lambeau Field had seen on a game day in 30 years. Total white-out conditions at times, grounds crew trying to
sweep the lines between plays and coaches and commentators alike having difficulty in seeing on to the field. And the Bucs were in white. The Bucs were
outgained by the incredible margin of 512 yards to 61 and it was only two short missed fieldgoals by Al Del Greco of the Packers (basically because he couldn't stand up straight to kick them) and a pair of fumbles that stopped the game being a total annihilation on the scoreboard. A shade under 20,000 were in the stands to see the game although probably many more were unable to travel across snowbound Wisconsin to get to Lambeau Field that afternoon. It was 30 first downs to five for the Pack and Lynn Dickey's passing performance was nothing short of unreal in the conditions. James Lofton had over 100 yards by half-time and Dickey's arm was every bit as good as Brett Favre who would follow him a decade later. Steve Young threw one out pass that sailed on the wind and flew over the receiver's head. He tried again on the next play and the wind knocked it down to fall incomplete five yards from Kevin House's feet. Backs and linemen were slipping all over the place unless they had a Packer helmet on, in which case they seemed to be playing on perfect grass. The 1985 Bucs were not a great team and they quickly realised that as soon as the Packers scored, any hope of success was beyond them. Thanks to a fumble recovery, they did get inside the Green Bay 20-yard line at the end of the third quarter but the incompetent Leeman Bennett didn't call a time out and hence had to attempt the kick at the other end of the field at the start of the fourth quarter when the teams changed ends. I don't know if Igwebuike missed left, right or short - you simply couldn't see the ball flying off his foot.  The Bucs did get out of Wisconsin on a flight that evening but several of the players had staged a protest convinced it was not safe to fly. Eventually the pilot had to come out of the cockpit to convince them that he had a wife and family and wouldn't put them at risk by taking off in dangerous conditions. "Show us the pictures" LB and current Buc radio show host Scot Brantley remembers calling out. "You could hear a pin drop when we rolled down the runway" he added. 
(DALLAS) - Rookie Robert Lavette rushed for 50 yards on eight carries, including a 7-yard touchdown run, and veteran Ron Springs ran for 47 yards on seven carries for Dallas, which is without star running back Tony Dorsett, a holdout. Another Cowboys rookie, linebacker Jesse Penn, returned an intercepted pass 78 yards for a touchdown in the game at Irving, Texas. Green Bay's only points came on a 37-yard field goal by Al Del Greco. One of the few satisfactions Forrest Gregg got from the loss to the Cowboys was watching rookie QB Joe Shield surprise the enemy. The Cowboys led 27-3 in the final quarter when Shield substituted, and suddenly "the kid is driving, so they put their first defense back in," Gregg said with a slight chuckle. "He evidently struck fear in the hearts of the Cowboys," he said.

G - Green Bay M - Milwaukee
(NEW YORK) - Maurice Carthon scored his first touchdown in an NFL uniform and Ali Haji Sheikh booted a field goal as the New York Giants remained undefeated in the preseason with a victory over the Packers Saturday night. Green Bay fell to 0-2 after failing to score a touchdown for the second straight week. The Packers played for the second straight week with starting quarterback Lynn Dickey on the sidelines with an injury. Dickey missed last week with back spasms and was sidelined Saturday with a bruised throwing hand. Phil Simms guided the Giants on two scoring driving, the first one capped by a 30-yard field goal by Haji Sheikh and the second that Carthon ended with a 2-yard run. Linebacker Gary Reasons booted the extra point because Haji-Sheikh suffered a slight pull of his left hamstring. Green Bay took a 2-0 lead on the third play of the game when Simms was tackled in the end zone by Packers nose tackle Charles Martin. The Packers had trouble moving the ball in the first half, picking up just five first downs with Scott Brunner at quarterback.

(GREEN BAY) - Pat Leahy kicked 3 field goals of 24, 30 and 35 yards and Johnny Hector ran for 2 touchdowns Saturday night to boost the Jets, who led 24-10 at the half. Green Bay's defense stiffened in the second half and the Packers' offense, led by Randy Wright, began moving through the air. Green Bay narrowed the margin to 24-16 on a 35-yard touchdown pass from Wright to Phillip Epps. Al Del Greco added the extra point, then made it 24-20 with a 42-yard field goal on the Packers' next possession, which followed a sack of New York's Ken O'Brien by defensive end Robert Brown. But early in the fourth quarter, the Jets' offense recovered and got Leahy close enough for a 30-yard field goal. With 4:04 left, Leahy kicked a 35-yard field goal to put the game out of reach, following up a key interception of Wright by cornerback Bobby Jackson. Wright left the game with 2:44 remaining, having injured the same left knee that sidelined him in 1984.

(NEW ENGLAND) - Tony Eason threw for 241 yards and one touchdown, and New England sacked Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey seven times as the Patriots held on to beat the Packers. Eason, the league's third-rated quarterback last season, completed 21 of 28 passes, including a 3-yard scoring pass to Cedric Jones eight seconds before halftime to make the score 19-6. It ended a second quarter in which the Packers gave up a fumble, a safety and an interception in a span of five offensive plays that led to a 12-0 New England advantage. Craig James' 65-yard run made the score, 26-6, with 6:23 left in the game. The Packers rallied for two touchdowns in the last four minutes on Dickey's 8-yard pass to Paul Coffman and Jessie Clark's 23-yard run.

July 29th 1985 – With his two-year stint with the Tampa Bay Bandits of the United States Football League over, Mike Butler returns to the Green Bay Packers, a team that drafted him ninth overall in 1977. But even after signing three one-year contracts, the defensive end’s official return has to wait as he is put on the failed physical, non-football injury list with a broken left hand suffered in a USFL playoff game. “He belongs to us. He will work out on his own, and when he gets cleared on that hand, he’ll start participating in practice,” Packers coach Forrest Gregg says. Six years a Packer (1977-82), Butler jumped to the USFL after a salary disagreement with Green Bay. In 1985, Butler plays in 12 games (starting two) and records two quarterback sacks.

September 24th 1985 – Looking for an experienced quarterback to add to the roster, Green Bay Packers coach Forrest Gregg announces the team has waived rookie QB Joe Shields in order to make room for veteran QB Jim Zorn. Mentioning that both Lynn Dickey and Randy Wright have had a history of injuries, Gregg says: “We feel very fortunate to have him (Zorn) because we feel he has a lot of ability as a football player.” Gregg uses all three quarterbacks in 1985 as Dickey (314 attempts), Zorn (123) and Wright (74) become the first Packers trio to each attempt more than 70 passes in the same season.

The Snow Bowl was played on December 1, 1985 — a game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is known for its heavy snow and adverse weather conditions. Only 19,856 were in attendance, with over 36,000 “no-shows,” the most in Packers history. About two-thirds of the stadium was empty. Twelve inches of snow fell before the game and another four to five inches fell during the game. (SOURCE: Packerville, USA)
Packers cornerback Mark Lee walks off the field after being ejected for shoving Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton over the bench on the Bears’ sideline during the first quarter of a 16-10 loss to the Bears at Lambeau Field on Nov. 3, 1985. There were five unnecessary roughness penalties in the first half and even more shoving matches. The Press-Gazette’s Bob McGinn called it “a Pier Six brawl that faintly resembled a football game.” (SOURCE: Green Bay Press-Gazette archives)

BELOW - This publication is from 1985, and it was used to convince potential players that playing and living in Wisconsin was a great choice. There are some fine photos of the old Packers facilities — including their rarely-pictured “The Barn” indoor practice building — as it was during the Forrest Gregg coaching era. It’s also neat to see how they used former players to sell the franchise on future players. (SOURCE: Packerville, USA)
(GREEN BAY) - Eddie Lee Ivery ran 1 yard for a touchdown with 4:07 left as the Packers edged the Giants. The touchdown concluded a 75-yard drive by the Packers. That drive followed a 5-yard touchdown toss from Phil Simms to WR Lionel Manuel that gave the Giants the lead for first time in the game. It was Simms' second touchdown throw of the half. TE Don Hasselbeck caught a 20-yard pass from Simms in the third quarter for the Giants' first touchdown of the game Down 20-17, the Packers' Lynn Dickey made two key throws, a 34-yarder to James Lofton, and a 22-yarder to Phillip Epps, to take Green Bay to the 1-yard line. Ivery scored over the right side on the second play, but Al Del Greco missed the extra point attempt making the score 23-20. The Giants, in the last minutes, drove to the Packers' 30-yard line. But Ali Haji-Sheikh, bothered by a pulled hamstring in his left leg, missed a 47-yard field goal attempt.

(MILWAUKEE) - Tony Paige scored two touchdowns and the New York defense overwhelmed the error-prone Packers, sending starting QB Lynn Dickey to the sidelines in the third period. LB Lance Mehl had five tackles, two sacks and an interception. The Jets clinched it early in the fourth quarter when the Packers tried a fake punt deep in their own territory. Guy Prather fumbled the snap and Jets DT Tom Baldwin recovered and ran nine yards for his first NFL touchdown. Green Bay only managed 71 yards rushing on 25 carries.

(ST. LOUIS) - Leonard Smith set up 10 second-quarter points with a blocked punt and an interception and Neil Lomax passed for three touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters, helping the Cardinals roll over the Green Bay Packers. St. Louis, following a scoreless opening period, exploded for 26 points in just under 18 minutes extending to the final half. The Cards, while improving their record to 3-1, dropped Green Bay to 1-3, despite Jesse Clark's 80-yard run for the Packers, longest ever by a St. Louis opponent, and Lynn Dickey's three scoring passes. Smith, the Cards' SS, broke through to bat down Joe Prokop's punt from Green Bay's 24 with St. Louis leading 9-0 in the second quarter. Ottis Anderson banged 1 yard to score three plays afterward. Moments later, Smith plucked off a deflected Randy Wright pass and raced 67 yards to set up Neil O'Donoghue's first of two field goals in padding the Cards' lead to 19-0 at halftime. Gary Ellerson set a Packer record with eight kickoff returns.

(GREEN BAY) - Phillip Epps caught two touchdown passes, James Lofton grabbed 10 passes for 151 yards and an aggressive Green Bay defense stifled a bumbling Detroit offense as the Packers romped over the Lions 43-10. Green Bay's offense managed to roll up 512 yards. Epps' third-quarter touchdowns came on a 9-yard pass from Lynn Dickey and a 28-yarder from Green Bay backup Randy Wright, filling in for the injured veteran. Dickey's other touchdown toss came in the first quarter. Wright also threw a 7-yard touchdown strike to TE Ed West in the third quarter. Even though Lofton didn't score, he had his best game of the season and moved into second place on the all-time list of Packers having the most yards catching passes, surpassing Don Hutson's 7,991 yards. Carroll Dale is first with 8,079 yards. Detroit had six turnovers in the game - four lost fumbles and two interceptions. The blitzing Packers sacked Lions quarterbacks four times.

(MILWAUKEE) - Al Del Greco kicked two fourth-quarter field goals, the second with seven seconds remaining, to lift the host Green Bay Packers to a 20-17 victory over division rival Minnesota. Del Greco's 22-yard kick capped a 66-yard Packers drive that started with less than a minute and a half left to play. The big play on that drive came on a 26-yard pass from Lynn Dickey to WR James Lofton at the Minnesota 10-yard line. A roughing-the-passer penalty on Vikings DE Mark Mullaney gave the Packers a first and goal. Del Greco's kick came on second down. Two third-quarter touchdowns and extra points left the score tied 14-14 entering the fourth quarter. Green Bay took a brief third-quarter lead on an unusual play by the Packers defense, which came immediately after Minnesota LB Scott Studwell snuffed out a Packers drive by intercepting Dickey in the end zone and returning the ball to the 12-yard line. Minnesota RB Darrin Nelson took the handoff, ran left, but Green Bay DE Robert Brown forced him to fumble. The ball popped out of a knot of players into the hands of Packers CB Tim Lewis, who ran 6 yards into the end zone.

(CHICAGO) - William "The Refrigerator" Perry, a 325-pound rookie DT, went on the offense Monday night to lead Walter Payton and the undefeated Chicago Bears to a 23-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Perry, used in short-yardage, goal-line situations, led the blocking on Payton scoring runs of two and one yards and also scored himself on a one-yard run to the delight of a Soldier Field crowd of 65,095. Payton carried 25 times for 112 yards, giving the NFL's all-time leading rusher his 66th career 100-yard game. The victory gave the Bears a 7-0 record, their best start since 1942 when the team won all 11 of its regular season games. Lynn Dickey got the Packers on the scoreboard first with a 27-yard scoring pass to James Lofton. But the Bears dominated thereafter, particularly a defense that intercepted four passes and recorded a fourth-quarter safety. Payton and Perry took care of the offense. Mike Richardson intercepted a Dickey pass and the Bears marched from the Packer 31 to the 2. Perry came into the backfield and opened a huge hole for Payton's tying touchdown. The next Bear interception was by Wilber Marshall, who returned it to the Green Bay 17. QB Jim McMahon completed a short pass to Payton and Payton carried for 10 to the Packer 1-yard line. Perry again entered the game but, instead of blocking, he plowed across for the tie-breaking touchdown. Late in the second period, the Bears drove from their own 11 to the Green Bay 1-yard line on the throwing of McMahon, who completed four passes in the drive. Perry again returned to the lineup and this time blocked as Payton scored to make it 21-7 with 1:11 left in the half.

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Eugene Daniel intercepted three passes and Wayne Capers, making his first start, scored on a 20-yard run and on pass receptions of 39 and 33 yards, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 37-10 win over the Green Bay Packers. Daniel also broke up a Green Bay pass at the Indianapolis 2-yard line and recovered two fumbles that ended Packer threats with under seven minutes remaining and in the final minute of the game. Two of Daniel's interceptions set up first-half touchdowns by the Colts, who built a 20-10 lead at intermission and put the game out of reach on their first possession of the third quarter. Runs by George Wonsley and Randy McMillan took Indianapolis to the Green Bay 39. On the next play, McMillan took the ball from QB Mike Pagel, faked a run and pitched back to Pagel who fired the touchdown pass to Capers. Capers, who joined the Colts as a free agent a week after the regular season began, got his third touchdown on a 33-yard pass from backup QB Matt Kofler with 2:50 left in the final period.

(GREEN BAY) - Walter Payton rushed for 192 yards and scampered 27 yards for a key fourth quarter touchdown and DL William "The Refrigerator" Perry caught a TD pass as the unbeaten Chicago Bears defeated the Green Bay Packers 16-10. Payton's touchdown run, giving Chicago its ninth victory of the season, followed a safety sack of Green Bay QB Jim Zorn by Steve McMichael and a short free kick by Packers' P Joe Prokop that left the Bears in good field position. Bears QB Jim McMahon hooked up with TE Tim Wrightman for a 17-yard completion for a first-down at the Green Bay 27. Payton's scoring run, with 10:31 left in the game, came on the next play. Perry, a rookie who ran for his first pro touchdown against the Packers two weeks ago, caught a 4-yard TD pass from McMahon in the second quarter, giving Chicago a 10-7 lead. Perry lined up in the left slot on a second-and-goal situation at the 4. He went in motion to the right and was unguarded in the end zone. The Packers entered the final quarter with a 10-7 lead, thanks to a 55-yard pass catch and run in the third quarter by Jessie Clark, who hauled in Zorn's first TD pass with Green Bay. Zorn was signed by Green Bay in September after his release by Seattle and was making his first NFL start in two years, in place of regular Lynn Dickey. Five unsportsmanlike conduct or unnecessary roughness penalties were called, and Packer CB Mark Lee was ejected.

(MINNESOTA) - Lynn Dickey came off the bench to complete nine of 11 passes for 135 yards, including a 63-yarder to Phillip Epps that set up Dickey's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Lee Ivery with 5:29 to play, as the visiting Green Bay Packers rallied for three touchdowns in a 3:37 span late in the game to post a 27-17 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. With the Packers trailing 17-6 with 12:39 remaining. Dickey, who had replaced ineffective starter Jim Zorn with 2:22 left in the first half, connected on 18- and 24-yard passes to help set up Gerry Ellis' l-yard run with 7:27 left to bring Green Bay within 17-13. One play after Minnesota was forced to punt, Dickey hooked up with Epps, who snared six passes for 118 yards, over Carl Lee down to Minnesota's 5-yard line. Two plays later, Dickey hit Ivery to put the Pack up for good 20-17. Mark Murphy then interecepted a Tommy Kramer pass and returned it 50 yards for the clincher with 3:56 to go. Tim Lewis also intercepted a Kramer pass late in the game. Darrin Nelson ran 21 times for a career-high 146 yards and scored on a 4-yard run that put the Vikings ahead 14-6 with 8:25 left in the third quarter. Jan Stenerud's 24-yard fourthquarter field goal gave Minnesota its 17-6 bulge. The Vikings took a 7-0 lead 10:23 into the game on Ted Brown's 1-yard run. Al Del Greco's 46- and 28-yard field goals, the latter coming with 10 seconds left in the first half, to make it 7-6 at halftime. Zorn completed only five of 13 passes for 75 yards before being pulled.

(MILWAUKEE) - Lynn Dickey tossed two second-quarter touchdowns, one to Phillip Epps, whose 46-yard punt return set up another Green Bay score, as the host Packers romped over the sluggish Saints. Dickey's TD passes covered 3 and 11 yards and helped the Packers to a 17-0 halftime lead. For the day, Dickey completed 22 of 35 passes for 302 yards. But he threw two interceptions, including one to Saints' S Terry Hoage near the end of the third quarter that Hoage returned 52 yards for New Orleans' first score. The Packers defense sacked New Orleans QB Bobby Hebert six times. Hebert scored his first NFL touchdown in receiving a 7-yard toss from Guido Merkens in the fourth quarter that made the score 31-14. Green Bay QB Jim Zorn, who relieved Dickey when the game was out of reach for New Orleans, also tossed a touchdown pass - an 8-yarder to Preston Dennard with just under two minutes remaining. The win improved Green Bay's record to 5-6 and kept the Packers in the hunt for a wildcard playoff spot. It was the Packers' seventh straight victory over New Orleans, including four straight at County Stadium.

(LOS ANGELES) - Olympic sprinter Ron Brown, running wild against the Green Bay Packers, scored twice on spectacular kickoff returns and caught a touchdown pass to pace the Los Angeles Rams to a 34-17 victory. The win snapped a two-game losing skid by the Rams, 9-3, and built their NFC West lead over San Francisco to 2.5 games. The Packers' hopes for a wildcard playoff spot dimmed as they fell to 5-7, losing for the first time in three games. Brown raced 98 yards for a touchdown with the game's opening kickoff, then ran another kickoff back 86 yards in the second quarter to give Los Angeles a 14-7 lead. Only two other players in NFL history had run back as many as two kickoffs for touchdowns in a single game - Timmy Brown of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1966 and Travis Williams of the Packers in 1967. In the second half, when the Packers kicked the ball away from him, Brown broke loose down the middle and caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from Dieter Brock to stake the Rams to a 28-17 lead early in the fourth quarter. Brown, a second-year pro who was a member of the United States' gold medal-winning 400-meter relay team in the 1984 Olympics, finished with five receptions and 87 total yards plus the two long kickoff returns. Eric Dickerson gained 150 yards on 31 carries and put the Rams ahead to stay when he scored on a 14-yard run for a 21-17 Los Angeles lead late in the third quarter. Brock completed 15 of 19 throws for 150 yards, including the toss to Brown, and was not intercepted.

(GREEN BAY) - The Packers, depending largely on the arm of veteran QB Lynn Dickey, weathered blizzard-like conditions to shut out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 21-0. Dickey, who seemed to thrive in the adverse weather, completed 22 of 38 passes for 289 yards and ran one yard for a touchdown as the Packers rolled up 512 offensive yards. In a snowy game at Denver last season, he threw for 371 yards. Dickey said he couldn't worry about the 30-degree weather with winds gusting to 40 miles an hour. "You've got to accept" the weather, be said. "It isn't going to get any better. Just grip (the football) tight and throw the best you can." Green Bay RB Gerry Ellis adjusted to the layer of snow, setting his feet well enough to rush for 101 yards, including 35 yards for a touchdown. "It was 85 degrees in Tampa, and they come up here and the snow's blowing. I know they're not used to that," Ellis said. "It's kind of an advantage for us." Eddie Lee Ivery ran for 109 yards. A foot of snow was on the field at kickoff time and another four inches fell during it. Tampa Bay wore white uniforms, and Steve Young couldn't even see his receivers at times through the blizzard. The Bucs were outgained 512-65 which makes the final 21 point margin seem amazingly small. Less than 20,000 actually braved the conditions with over 45,000 no-shows at Lambeau Field.

(GREEN BAY) - Dan Marino passed for 345 yards and five touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter, as the Dolphins held off a furious second-half rally by Green Bay to hand the Packers a 34-24 defeat. The winning toss for Miami went from Marino to TE Joe Rose from two yards out with 3:18 left in the game. The Dolphins's Paul Lankford ended the next Green Bay drive, which was started by a 48-yard kickoff runback by Phillip Epps, by intercepting a Jim Zorn pass with 2:48 left Miami then scored an insurance touchdown on a 61-yard pass-play with 2:10 remaining when Dan Johnson hauled in a toss from Marino and ran to the end zone. Zorn passed for 247 yards and threw two third-quarter touchdown passes to lead Green Bay's second-half comeback. Miami led at the half 20-3. Zorn's third-quarter TD tosses went to Preston Dennard for 29 yards and to James Lofton for 56 yards. Eddie Lee Ivery dived over from short yardage with 8:32 left in the game, and Al Del Greco's kick gave Green Bay a 24-20 lead. But Miami, starting on its own 33, drove straight down the field on the next possession. A 17-yard pass to a wide open Tony Nathan was the big play and gave the Dolphins a first-and-goal on the Green Bay 3. On third-and-two, Marino passed to Rose in the left corner of the end zone, Rose leaping over LB Brian Noble to grab the ball. Marino's five TD passes in a game tied his NFL career high, equaling his performance in a September 2, 1984, game against Washington. Lynn Dickey was sidelined with an injury in this game, and would never play for the Packers again.

(DETROIT) - Al Del Greco's fourth field goal, a 27-yarder as time ran out, lifted the Green Bay Packers to a 26-23 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Lions had tied the game 23-23 with 1:01 remaining on a 30-yard TD pass from Joe Ferguson to Leonard Thompson. Eddie Murray's extra point try was wide right. Mike Douglass picked off Eric Hipple's underthrown pass at the Packers' 20 and lumbered the length of the field weaving in and out of traffic and breaking tackles, to give Green Bay its first lead, 23-17, at 5:31 of the fourth quarter. It was one of five turnovers for the Lions, who had jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead on their NFC Central Division rivals. It was Detroit's first defeat in the seven games at the Silverdome this season and only the Packers' second road victory in seven tries. The Lions led 17-6 at halftime on the strength of two 1-yard runs by Alvin Moore and a 19-yard field goal by Murray. But the Packers needed only two plays for their first TD in the third quarter. Gary Ellerson took a handoff from Jim Zorn and ran 37 yards for the score at 3:08 of the period to put the Packers squarely back in the contest. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Del Greco, who had field goals of 38 and 29 yards in the second quarter, kicked a 25-yarder to pull the Packers within one point at 17-16. Zorn, making only his fourth start for Green Bay, completed 10 of 23 passes for 159 yards with one interception. Hipple, who twice was forced from the game with a strained left knee, was 19 of 30 for 221 yards with three interceptions. Ferguson hit 4 of 6 for 82 yards but also gave up an interception. A crowd of 49,379 watched the game. There were 8,107 no-shows.

(TAMPA BAY) - Phillip Epps scored on a 30-yard flanker reverse in the first quarter and Jessie Clark ran 6 yards for a fourth-quarter TD Sunday to lead the mistake-prone Packers to a 20-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Clark's touchdown with 7:03 remaining capped a 13-pIay, 73-yard drive that backup QB Randy Wright engineered after Tampa Bay took a 17-13 lead on Steve Young's 3-yard scoring pass to Jimrnie Giles with 13:16 to go. Wright, who replaced Jim Zorn midway through the third period, completed passes of 18 yards to Eddie Lee Ivery and 11 yards to Gary Ellerson to highlight the march that consumed more than six minutes. Young, who completed 21 of 37 passes for 278 yards, brought Tampa Bay back, but the Bucs' bid to force overtime came up short when Donald Igwebuike's 48-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right with 2:58 left. The Packers won for the fifth time in seven games despite four turnovers and a bizarre second quarter that saw the two teams commit three turnovers apiece in the final 8:51 before halftime. During that stretch, Green Bay's Al Del Greco kicked a 47-yard field goal that was taken off the scoreboard because an official ruled time out had been called for the two- minute warning before the ball was snapped. Del Greco missed the field goal when play resumed.
