(GREEN BAY) - Anthony Dilweg, given the chance to play by Don Majkowski's 45-day holdout, passed for three touchdowns in his first NFL start, leading the Packers past the Rams 36-24. Dilweg twice passed to TE Ed West for touchdowns, the second from seven yards with 11:43 to play. That capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive and put the Packers ahead 27-17. Three plays later, Henry Ellard fumbled after a pass reception and Green Bay's Jerry Holmes picked it up and ran 33 yards to the Los Angeles 4. Brent Fullwood's 2-yard touchdown run put the Packers ahead 33-17. But Jim Everett then completed five passes in an 80-yard drive that took just under three minutes. He capped it with a 2-yard toss to Pete Holohan, bringing the Rams within 33-24 with 8:11 left. The Packers, behind Dilweg, then chewed up seven minutes with another long drive. Chris Jacke hit a 51-yard field goal, but the Rams were called for unsportsmanklike conduct on the play, giving the Packers a first down at the Rams' 18. With 1:06 to play, Jacke kicked a 40-yarder for the game's final points. Dilweg, completed 20 of 32 passes for 248 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Query to give the Packers a 17-14 lead with 1:35 left in the first half.
