(AP) -When you're outmatched at quarterback, you're in trouble in the National Football League. Minnesota quarterback Fran Tark-enton had a hot hand yesterday in the Vikings' 20-9 victory over Green Bay, while second-year Packer quarterback Carlos Brown was cold as the 16-degree temperature. "If I had done my job, we would have won the ball game," said Brown, who was forced to start three weeks ago when regular quarterback Lynn Dickey went out for the season because of a shoulder injury and completed only seven of 24 pass attempts' for 93 yards. The 36-year-old Tarkenton though, hit on 23 of 32 for 195 yards. The Vikings also rushed for 218 yards, one of their best efforts of the year, with Chuck Foreman scoring twice on one-yard runs in the fourth quarter. "We played very hard," said Tarkenton. "We played better than the score indicated." The Vikings, now 10-2-1, gained 414 yards offense to only 144 for the Packers. The contest was played in 20-degree weather and a steady snowfall. With Minnesota leading, 13-6, the Packers had an opportunity to tie the game midway through the final period. But tight end Rich McGeorge, wide open in a corner of the end zone, dropped Brown's pass. Brown threw the ball away on the next down when his receivers were covered, and Chester Marcol kicked a 24-yard field goal with 7:27 remaining in the game, pulling Green Bay to 13-9. Foreman scored his first touchdown two minutes into the fourth period, and again with 2:11 left in the game giving him 14 touchdowns for the season. Minnesota's 72-yard drive early in the fourth period nearly ended when Foreman fumbled at the 18, but the officials had ruled the ball was dead. The Packers, who dropped to 4-9 this season, also were hurt on the drive by two roughness penalties. Minnesota closes out its regular season Saturday in Miami, needing a victory to assure itself of a home field advantage in the National Football Conference divisional playoffs Dec. 18 or 19. The Vikings' victory over Green Bay Sunday extended their unbeaten string at home to 16 games. The Packer touchdown came with 2:47 left in the first period when 01-lie Smith made a diving catch of Brown's pass to complete a 12-yard scoring play. But Marcol's extra point kick was blocked by Minnesota's Bobby Bryant. Fran Tarkenton's string of 155 consecutive pass attempts without an interception ended in the third quarter, when Perry Smith picked off his long throw. Backup running back Robert Miller of the Vikings, a third year player from Kansas, had his finest day of the season with 95 yards rushing in 13 carries, including a 36-yard run that set up Foreman's second touchdown at the two-yard line. Miller also caught five passes for 37 yards.

San Diego Overtime SAN DIEGO (AP) - Mercury Morris swept left end for 13 yards in overtime to score a tie-breaking touchdown and give the San Diego Chargers a 13-7 National Football League victory over the San Francisco 49ers yesterday. Morris came into the game for halfback Rickey Young, who had set up the nine-play, 93-yard Charger drive by gaining 40 yards in four carries before he was shaken up. With 5:12 elapsed in thel5-minute overtime, Morris took a handoff from Dan Fouts and scored untouched, getting a key block from tackle Billie Shields. The Chargers won the coin toss and elected to receive in the overtime period. On the fifth piay of the drive, Fouts threw a 30-yard pass to Charlie Joiner, the NFL's only pass receiver to exceed 1,000 yards this season. With the ball on the San Francisco 34, Young went over left guard for four yards, then around right end for 15 to get the Chargers in position for the winning score. The victory improved San Diego's record to 6-7, while San Francisco dropped to 7-6. The two teams had played nearly 55 scoreless minutes before San Diego's Bo Matthews ended a 16-play, 80yard drive with a sweep of two yards in the fourth quarter. Ray Wersching kicked the extra point. The 49ers came right back, launching their longest drive of the game, which climaxed with a 13-yard scoring pass from Scott Bull to Paul Hofer. Steve Mike-Meyer kicked the tying extra point. San Francisco used eight plays to cover the 64 yards, with Hofer slipping out of middle linebacker Tom Graham's a Victory PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach says the Cowboys are much happier going into the playoffs with a division title in hand than they were last year when they slipped in as a wild card team. Staubach's passing overcame an ineffective running game yesterday and carried Dallas to a 26-7 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The win gave them the National Football League's National Conference East championship. "Clinching the title certainly was special because we won the division, and we didn't do that last year," Staubach said. The Cowboys eighth division championship in the last 11 years assured them of the home field edge in the playoffs. "It's been an unusual season," Staubach said. "We came out of the gate playing phenomenal offensive football, and then we ran into a rut. But we were still able to win." Staubach admitted that he was concerned about the Dallas running game. "Maybe people expected too much of our running game," he said. "But I am somewhat worried about our running game in the playoffs. We didn't break too many running plays today." Dallas coach Tom Landry expressed great relief over the title clinching. "Phew, I'm glad it's over. It was a real pressure game for us. We had to win today, otherwise we'd have had our backs to the wall next week." Staubach completed 22 of 39 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown. Dallas needed Staubach's passing talent as the Eagles contained the running game, allowing only 117 yards rushing. But Staubach cut the Eagle secondary to pieces, setting up two of the three touchdowns. Butch Johnson's 55-yard punt return led to the final Cowboy score. Doug Dennison ran two yards for a 7-0 Dallas lead in the first period, and the Cowboys made it 9-0 on a blocked punt that rolled out of the end zone for a safety. Philadelphia, 3-10, made it close with a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Roman Gabriel to wide receiver Charley Smith. Efren Her-rera's 21-yard field goal for the Cowboys made it 12-7 at intermission. But Dallas completely stopped the Eagles' offense in the second half. Johnson caught a seven-yard scoring pass from Staubach, and Bob New-house ran 10 yards for another Cowboy touchdown that helped boost the Dallas record to 11-2 with one game left.

What Allen's Redskins did yesterday was beat the New York Jets, 37-16, to stay tied with St. Louis in the chase for the National Conference wild-card playoff berth. Each team is 9-4 with one game to play, the Redskins closing out the National Football League regular season against the Cowboys and the Cardinals finishing up in New York against the Giants. Lou Holtz, the first-year coach of the Jets, also squelched reports that he would be leaving the team to return to college coaching. "There's nothing to it," said Holtz after the loss, which dropped New York's record to 3-10. "I'm happy with the situation here in New York and I'm happy with the owners. Holtz reportedly has been high on the list to replace Frank Broyles at Arkansas and Darrell Royal at Texas. "Lou told me he had been contacted by some schools in the past few weeks," said Jets general manager Al Ward. "He also said he was happy with the situation here. He's been little down on himself. We knew it would be rough this year but we're trying to put together a winning team." "They put the pressure on us yesterday," Allen said of the Cards' 24-17 victory yesterday over playoff-bound Baltimore. "Now we've put it right back on them." If the Redskins and Cardinals wind up tied, Washington goes to the playoffs, having beaten St. Louis twice. Quarterback Billy Kilmer and the Washington defense engineered the romp that dropped the Jets to 3-10. Kilmer threw three touchdown passes covering 16 yards to Jean Fugett, 14 yards to wide receiver Roy Jefferson and two yards to former Jets running back John Riggins. And the defense stormed in to sack New York quarterback Richard Todd six times. "It started off real good for us," Kilmer said. "After you get a big lead, it's hard for the other team to get back. It forces them to put it up. It creates turnovers." The scoring strikes to Fugett and Works for Win attempted tackle at the eight to go into the end zone with 1:19 left in regulation play. 49eri Chargers First downs 18 19 Rushes-yards 45-185 39-170 Passing yards 96 97 Return yards 44 50 Passes 11-221 12-21-0 Punts 5-42 7-47 Fumbles-lost 1-0 2-0 Penalties-yards 7-59 6-42 San Francisco 0 0 0 7 0 -7 San Diego 0 0 0 7 6-13 SD-Matthews 2 run (Wershlng kick) SF-Hofer 13 pass from Bull Mike-Meyer kick) SD-Morrls 13 run (No kick) A-33,539 INDIVIDUAL LEADERS RUSHING - San Francisco, Williams 26-104, Jackson 5-69, Bull 3-4.
