The defense, which had held the Lions to a mere field goal in a 14-3 victory earlier in the season, picked up where it left off. Detroit was held to 91 yards rushing and 83 passing. The Rears intercepted one pass while allowing Karl Swectan to complete only six of 33 passes and recovered three fumbles, S a y e r s , who had 142 yards rushing in the earlier game, ripped off 63 yards to set up the first Chicago touchdown and returned a kickoJf 07 yards (or another score.

"All week we preached about this to our special teams," Schmidt added with a look of resignation. "The only way to stop him is to get downfield and cover him." The Lions didn't look anything like the team which had given up only six points in its two games, including a 453 pasting of the San Francisco ·19«rs a week earlier. "We just played sloppy football," Schmidt said. "We didn't catch the ball. We didn't move it on the ground.

The Packers stymied Unitas through three quarters and built a 10-0 lead on Don Chandler's 40-yard field goal and Bart Starr's 31-yard TD pass to Donny Anderson. Unilas got the Colts back in the game on a 10-yard payoff pass to Alex Hawkins with 2:19 to go in Ihe final period. Michaels flubbed Ihe extra point conversion, then sliced a short kick-off. 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 Vince Lombard!. "Especially when you know it's coming. We were set up for the kick, but we couldn't get it."

Schmidt said a team's game plan goes out the window when it falls two touchdowns behind so early in the game. The Bears led 14-0 in the first nine minutes of the game. "When you fall behind like that you have to play catch up," said Schmidt. "You get away from the things you want to do and, as a result, don't get them done." Sayers, who gained 04 yards in eight carries, exploded for a 63 : yard burst to the Lions' one- yard line the second time the Bears had the ball. Jack Con- cannon scored two plays later. Ed O'Bradovich set up the second Bear touchdown when he knocked the ball loose fro.n Swcetan's hands at the Detroit five while blitzing on a pass p l a y . Linebacker Doug But/one picked the ball up at the Detroit one and fell into the and zone. Detroit got on the Scoreboard in the second quarter when Swectan engineered a nine - 1 play, 59-yard drive capped with I a nine-yard scoring strike f r o m ' Swectan to Mel Farr, who scored both of Detroit's touchdowns. On the following kickoff, Sayers romped 97 yards down the left sideline, sticking to his blockers like glue for the Bears' third score. The Bears' Mac Percival sandwiched field goals of 32 and 47 yards between Detroit second touchdown in the third quarter to wimlup the scoring. He had another attempt blocked by Detroit's Mike Lucci and Dick LoBeau and a 17-yard attempt late in the game hit the upright and bounced harmlessly to the side. Detroit's Garo Yepremian, who missed a 43-yard field goal, hud his extra point attempt after Farr's second touchdown blocked by the Bears' Dick But- kus. Detroit had another scoring opportunity in the fourth quarter when Darris McCord recovered a Chicago fumble at th» Bear 41.
