(UPI) Green Bay's pass defense, the best in the National Football league a year ago, will get its toughest test Monday night when the Packers take on the New York Jets and Joe Namath —who led the league in passing yardage in 1972. Green Bay is a four-point favorite in the nationally- televised season opener for both clubs and the Packers are hoping to get off to a good start in defense of the NCF Central Division crown they won last year. Jets Coach Weeb Ewbank, starting his last year, is basing his bid for success on the passing Namath and hoped for improvement on defense. But the Packers' defensive unit allowed only seven touchdowns through the air in 1973 and only one in thepre-season. Packers Coach Dan Devine has named Scott Hunter, like Namath a graduate of Alabama, t start for Green Bay. Hunfer has been an erratic passer, but he has looked sharp during the pre-season on his handoffs to John Brockington and MacArthur Lane, two of the NFL's top running backs.

The victory ruined the debut of Unitas with San Diego and kept alive George Allen's record of never having lost an opening game in eight seasons as a head coach. tGarrett made his first fumble with the Chargers backed up on their own goal line. Defensive end Verlon Briggs grabbed it off and ran it in from the two for the first Washington score. Two minutes later, Unitas completed his first pass as a Charger to Garrett, but he fumbled again. Washington's Ken Houston recovered and took the ball to the San Diego 22. Bill Kilmer hit Roy Jefferson on the one and Larry Brown took it across for another touchdown. With 57 seconds left in the quarter, Garrett fumbled for the third time and Brig Owens recovered and ran 36 yards for a touchdown to run the Redskins lead to 21-0. After a scoreless second period, the Washington offense generated a touchdown on its own, marcliing 80 yards with the second half kickoff and scoring on a 32 yarli pass from Kilmer to Charlie Tayltjf. The 'lO-year-okl Unitas, playing foi' San Diego after 17 seasons with the Baltimore Colts, was harrassed heavily throughout the contest by the Redskins defense. He was sacked on his first two pass attempts and wound up the day thrown for losses five before giving way to Wayne Clark with 9:40 left in llie contest. The Washington defense chalked up another interception on Clark and dropped him three more times for loses. 2 fumble recovery 1 run (Knight kick) 36 fumble recovery Deing times second stringer Man DIrgo WuhlnKtan Wnsh-Blgga kick) Wash—Brown Wash—Owens kick) Wash-Taylor (Knight kick) Wash-FG Knight 19 Wash-Grant 12 (lass (Knight kick) A-M,5B9 « • tt i»-u 21 « 7I»-IM (KnIglit (Knight 32 ii »8« from Kilmer from Kilmer Kathy Takes Distaff Golf LEA WOOD, Kan.
