Washington Redskins (5-3) 17, Green Bay Packers (3-5) 6
Sunday November 3rd 1974 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - The Washington Redskins, with QB Sonny Jurgensen ailing, used a rock-hard defense and a pair of interceptions to down the Green Bay Packers 17-6. The interceptions, off Green Bay starter Jack Concannon. led to 10 Redskin points and helped pull them from a 6-3 halftime deficit to their fifth victory in eight games. Green Bay had used field goals of 29 and 46 yards by Chester Marcol to take the lead. The Redskins' only points in the first half came on Mark Moseley's 40-yard kick which was set up by Dave Robinson's interception. A short Packer punt set up the only points the Redskins scored offensively, giving the ball to Washington on the 50. Passes by Bill Kilmer, subbing for Jurgensen, quickly took the ball downfield, with the final 22 yards coming on a toss to wide receiver Frank Grant midway through the third quarter. That gave Washington the lead and the final points came seven seconds into the fourth quarter when LB Harold McLinton picked off a Concannon pass and ran 14 yards to the end zone. Kilmer, who was the Redskins starter early in the year before Jurgensen got hot, hit on 14 of 24 passes for 139 yards but never could mount a sustained drive. Jurgensen was sidelined this week with a sore knee and bruised thigh. Injuries struck the Packers again as S Al Matthew left early in the second half with a dislocated shoulder and Concannon was forced from the game after being shaken up in the fourth period. Concannon. who had been outstanding in a loss to Detroit a week ago, managed only eight completions in 20 tries before giving way to the newly-acquired John Hadl. Hadl, trying to rally the Packers in the closing minutes was impressive, completing nine of 15 passes for 99 yards but his final throw was picked off by Pat Fischer at the Washington goal line as the game ended.
