Denver Lions (5-11) 22, Green Bay Packers (6-10) 13
Sunday December 30th 1990 (at Denver)
(DENVER) - Sammy Winder rushed for 80 yards in his swan song, John Elway threw a touchdown pass and Bobby Humphrey ran for a score as the host Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers, 22-13. Elway threw a quick slant pass to Mark Jackson late in the third period for a 15-yard TD. It was only the third time the two teams had met in regular season play since Elway became the Denver starter. It was his first TD pass ever against the Packers. Denver finished at 5-11 and Green Bay at 6-10. David Treadwell kicked field goals of 22 and 31 yards in the first half to match the scoring of Green Bay's Chris Jacke who had first-half field goals of 37 and 24 yards. Denver's other touchdown was scored on a 5-yard run by Humphrey to break a 6-6 tie early in the third quarter. Winder, who earlier announced he would retire, was a sentimental starter ahead of Humphrey. The nine-year veteran, second on the Broncos' all-time rushing list, finished with 80 yards on 15 carries and brought the Denver crowd to its feet with a 19-yard run midway through the fourth quarter when the game appeared safe for the Broncos. Anthony Dilweg was sacked late in the game, in what turned out to be his last appearance in the NFL.
