(AP) - Lynn Dickey passed for 260 yards and four touchdowns, including a 60-yard strike to John Jefferson for Green Bay's go-ahead score in the first quarter, leading the Packers to a 41-16 National Football League playoff victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday. Dickey also passed for touchdowns covering 20 yards to James Lofton, 4 to Eddie Lee Ivery and 7 to Jefferson, while Ivery scored on a 1-yard run and Jan Stenerud kicked two field goals as the Packers advanced into the National Football Conference playoff semifinals. Jefferson, who did not catch a touchdown pass during the regular season, had six receptions for 148 yards. St. Louis' Neil Lomax threw touchdown passes of 5 yards to Pat Tilley and 18 to Mike Schumann, and Neil O'Donoghue kicked an 18-yard field goal. However, O'Donoghue missed 44-and 45-yard field goal attempts and had a 44-yarder blocked by Gary Lewis, who also deflected a conversion attempt. The Cardinals lost star running back Ottis Anderson, who sprained his left ankle on the second play of the second quarter and did not return after he had rushed for 58 yards on eight carries. Tilley, the Cardinals' top receiver, went out with a sprained knee in the third quarter. The Packers, who built a 28-9 halftime lead, sacked Lomax five times for 158 yards in losses and forced four turnovers. After O'Donoghue's field goal had given the Cardinals a 3-0 lead on their first series, Jefferson broke between cor- nerback Carl Allen and safety Benny Parrin on a post pattern, caught Dickey's pass at the Cardinals' 25 and raced to the end zone, completing the 60-yard pjay. Dickey, who completed 17 of 23 passes, connected with Lofton on a scoring pass with 5:45 left in the first half. Parrin slipped trying to cover Lofton in the end zone. Linebacker George Cumby recovered a fumble by the Cardinals' Stump Mitchell at the Packers' 39 moments later. A 30- yard pass from Dickey to Jefferson and an 18-yard run by Ivery set up Ivery's touchdown dive, giving Green Bay a 21-3 lead. Two plays later, Mark Murphy intercepted a Lomax pass and returned the ball 22 yards to the Cardinals' 12. Dickey passed to Ivery for a touchdown and it was 28-3. Lomax passed to Tilley for a score nine seconds before halftime, but the Packers made it 31-!) on their first series of the second half when Stenerud kicked a 46- yard field goal. Dickey's 7-yard touchdown pass to Jefferson with 14 seconds left in the third period capped an 87-yard drive, aided by a ••43-yard pass interference penalty against" Allen. Reserve quarterback Rich Campbell passed for 15 yards to Jefferson early in the fourth quarter, setting up a 34-yard field goal by Stenerud. Lomax, who completed 32 of 51 passes for 385 yards, threw his scoring pass to Schumann with 8:13 left.

Theismann-Garrett duo light it up for Washington WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Theismann's three scoring passes to Alvin Garrett and cornerback Jeris White's 77-yard dash for a touchdown on the second-longest interception return in playoff history carried the Washington Redskins to a 31-7 victory Saturday over the mistake-prone Detroit Lions. Twice in the second period Theismann and the 5-foot-7, 178-pound Garrett teamed to burn 5-11 right cornerback Bruce McNorton for 21-yard touchdown passes en route to a 24-0 halftime lead. Then, with the first possession of the third quarter, Theismann and Garrett stung left corner Bobby Watkins on a 27-yard scoring strike. Garrett, replacing injured Art Monk, became the 13th player in National Football League history to score three touchdowns in a playoff game and the sixth to catch three TD passes. The Redskins, 8-1 during the strike-shortened regular season, advanced to the second round by eliminating Detroit, at 4-5 the National Conference's only sub-.500 team in the playoffs. The 31 points were the most ever scored by the Redskins in postseason play. Theismann completed 14 of 19 attempts for 210 yards against the Lions' defense, 10th against the pass in the NFC. Garrett caught six of the passes for 110 yards. Detroit's rushing defense was the conference's best, but John Riggins of the 'Skins bulled through it for 119 yards in 25 carries. In a season marked by no-shows far above the norm, the Redskins sold out 55,045-seat RFK Stadium, and every one of the seats was filled. The Lions, who had not scored in a playoff game since 1957 (they were shut out 5-0 by Dallas in 1970), turned the ball over on their first three possessions and four of their first five. They finally got on the Scoreboard midway in the third period on Eric Hippie's 15-yard touchdovvn pass to tight end David Hill. ; Detroit repeatedly drove deep into Washington territory in the first half, but two fumbles by halfback Billy Sims killed scoring threats and White's interception put the Redskins on the board 8:01 into the game. He stepped in front of a pass by Hippie pass intended for Sims on the right sideline at the Redskins' 23-yard line. White juggled it once, gained control and ran unhindered, beating Hippie to the Detroit end zone by 10 yards. The 77-yard interception return was exceeded in playoff history only by Walt Simmer's 88-yard sprint for Cleveland against Dallas in 1969. White also intercepted Hippie in the Washington end zone early in the fourth quarter to kill one of many Detroit scoring threats. Mark Moseley's 26-yard field goal late in the first period made it 10-0, then Theismann and Garrett began their personal assault on the Detroit secondary.
