(MILWAUKEE) - Chris Miller passed 54 yards to George Thomas for a touchdown and Steve Broussard ran 71 yards for another Saturday night as the Falcons beat the Packers. The Falcons, 3-0 under first-year coach Jerry Glanville, are having their best preseason start ever. Atlanta led 10-7 at halftime before Miller teamed with Thomas with 4:31 left in the third quarter. Packers quarterback Mike Norseth hit Clarence Weathers with a 60-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the fourth quarter, cutting the lead to 17-14 with 14:52 left. On the next series, the Packers' Tony Bennett apparently recovered a fumble by Atlanta quarterback Gilbert Renfroe. But the play, which included a return to the Falcons' 4, was overruled by video replay. The Packers (1-2) also had an interception by Scott Stephen deep in Falcon territory overruled by replay in the first quarter. Green Bay reached the Atlanta 39 with one minute left in the game, but two sacks and two penalties knocked the Packers out of field goal range.
