Detroit moved ahead with a 13-yard scoring pass from Munson to tight end Charlie Sanders in the third quarter, but New Orleans' halfback Don McCall tied it up for the Saints with a two-yard plunge in the quarter. Durkee and Walker traded field goals in the final quarter, and Durkee missed a 41-yard at a fumble into 10 points and a 32-31 lead with 26 seconds left. The Bills tried an onside kick but Denver recovered and Mar-lin Briscoe, who had thrown four touchdown passes, pitched a 59-yard completion to Floyd Little on the Buffalo 10. A face mask penalty moved the ball to the five to set the stage for Howfield's winning boot. Briscoe, a 177-pound rookie subbing for injured Steve Tensi. busted the scoreless game open in the first three minutes of the second quarter with scoring throws of 41 yards to Brendan McCarthy and 15 to Eric Crab-tree. George Byrd's 17-yard run-back with a stolen Briscoe pass to Denver's 31 opened the way for the Bills' first score and shaved the Denver lead to 14-7 before Briscoe hooked up with Little for a 66-yard screen pass and score in the last 30 seconds of the half for a 21-7 cushion. Booker Edgerson's 35-yard touchdown run with another Briscoe interception narrowed the margin to 21-14 before Brat Tells Thoughts WASHINGTON (API - Green Buy's Zcke Bratkowski shrugged off his 18-for-24 passing performance Sunday and said, "There is only one statistic that counts the win." The super sub brought the struggling Packers back to within half a game of the lead in the Central Division race as Green Bay ground down Washington 27-7 in quest of still another National Football League title. "Now it is getting down to the championship weeks and the whole team has dedicated itself to winning these last four games." Bratkowski said. The 37-year-old quarterback took over from the injured Bart Starr to pass for 230 yards and one touchdown in the rescue role he has played so often for the Packers in their championship years. Coach Phil Bengtson said he didn't decide until just before the game to hold out Starr, who suffered bruised ribs last week. Bengtson said, "he didn't feel very good. If he had been in there, he might have been hit. And an extra week's rest on an injury of that type is helpful." Bengtson said Bratkowski "did very well, very well." The balding Brat praised his Packer receivers, particularly Donny Anderson, who grabbed a third-quarter pass and wiggled through three Redskins defend ers on a 47-yard touchdown play. "I just spun around. I saw three defenders coming. And all of a sudden I was through there." Anderson said. Starr appeared in the game only to hold for kicks. But he did make one contribution after the Packers, with a 14-0 lead, regained the football early in the game in Redskin territory. Starr suggested a passing play and it promptly went for an interception. Starr laughed and said, "I told him that's the last one I'm calling today. He can go the rest of the way." AUTO ...
