On the next play, the magnificent quarterback fired a touchdown strike to Willie Richardson, ending the Colts' five- game losing streak against Green Bay and keeping them atop the NFL's Central Division with a 6-0-2 mark. 'Unitas' second TD pass in the final 2% minutes — after rookie Kich Volk recovered Lou Michaels' onside kick — avenged a 14-10 loss to the Packers at Baltimore last Dec. 10 — a loss that eliminated the Colts from the ^estern Conference race. i In Sunday's other games, Los Angeles remained one game behind the Colts in the Coastal race by trimming San Francisco 17-7; Cleveland buried Pitts- bjjrgh 34-14; St. Louis outscored Washington 27-21; New Orleans whipped Philadelphia 31-24 for its first NFL victory; Minnesota overtook New York 27-24 and Chicago bounced Detroit 27-13. • The Packers stymied Unitas through three quarters and built a 10-0 lead on Don Chandler's 49-yard field goal and Bart Starr's 31-yard TD pass to Donny Anderson. •Unitas got the Colts back in the game on a 10-yard payoff ppss to Alex Hawkins with 2:19 to go in the final period. Mi- Frank Ryan, injuries for the eighth straight week, fired first quarter TD passes to Gary Collins and Leroy Kelly and guided Cleveland to a 31-7 t.hird-perioJ bulge over the Steelers before bowing out. Larry Wilson intercepted a pass on his one-yard line and raced 44 yards to set up the first of two St. Louis scores in the final 15 minutes Jim Hart followed Wlson's runback with a 55-yard pass to Jackie Smith before diving the last yard to put the Cards in front for good. Walter "The Flea" Roberts bolted 91 yards with the opening kickoff for one touchdown, zipped 27 yards for another after picking up teammate Jim Taylor's fumble and scored a third on a 49-yard pass from Gary Cuozzo, leading New Orleans' expansion Saints out of a seven-game .skid. * * Fred Cox' 13-yard field goal with 10 seconds to play capped Minnesota's second half come- jack against New York. The Giants squandered a 24-7 lead and fumbled away a chance for tie-breaking FG less than two minutes iVfore Cox booted the winner. Dallas' Dan Reeves scored four touchdowns — two on passes from Don Meredith, who returned to action after a three- week layoff — as the Capitol Division leaders flattened the Falcons. Gale Sayers scored on a 97- yard kickoff return and sped 63 yards to set up another touchdown, pacing the Bears to their second, victory of the season over Detroit. San Diego, the teams ahead of them in the Western Division. Okland raised its record to 7- but did not resemble any express in huffing and puffing by Denver 21-17. San Diego was idle. In the other AFL contests, Boston kept Houston off the Jets' back by slowing down the Oilers 18-7, while Buffalo got back on the track against Miami 35-13. Kansas City lay sidetracked with a 3-3 record two weeks ago after two straight losses before Mike Garrett, their 5-foot-9, 190- pound dynamo, moved it into high gear. Garrett, slowed by injuries earlier, gained 101 yards and scored twice against Denver and then steamed for 192 yards, a club record, and a TD against the Jets. Oakland had a much tougher time against Denver. Two Daryle Lamonica to Bill Miller TD passes and two George Blanda field goals provided a 21-7 Oakland lead late in the third quarter before the Broncos came alive. A fumbled punt led to Denver's second score in the fourth quarter and an 11-yard punt gave the Broncos another chance at the Raider 21 midway through the session. But all they could salvage was a field goal, their last good shot. "This was a long Way from one of our better games," Oakland coach John Rauch admitted. "Still, we had it on offense and defense when we needed it." Houston, 4-3-1, missed its chance to tie the Jets as its vaunted defense held Boston to three • Gino Cappelletti field goals and a safety until late in the final period, but could set up only one Oiler TD. That came after recovering a Boston fumble that led to a 45-yard scoring march that closed the gap to 117. Buffalo, winning only the third time in eight tries, ran up its biggest point total of the season as Wray Carlton ran 15 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns. BHIie Masters also caught Jack Kemp's two scoring passes, and Tom Janik ran an intercepted pass back 19 yards for the fifth TD. chaels flubbed the extra point I day. By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer The Kansas City Chiefs, pulled by their might little engine, appear on the track again and picking up steam, looking more and more like the Super Chiefs of 1966. Still hopeful of another shot at the Super Bowl, the once-faltering American Football League defending champions ran over the New York Jets 42-18 Sunday after crushing Denver last Sun- conversion, then sliced a short Kickoff. Volk fell on the ball at the Green Bay 34 and the Colts put over the winning touchdown with 1:28 on the clock. • "That's a heck of a way to lose," said Packers' Coach yince Lombard!.
