(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.
