(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.
