The first quarter was controlled by the Packers as they drove the length of the field chewing up over 7 minutes of the game clock. The drive was capped off with a 33 touchdown pass from Star to Dowler giving the Packers a 7-0 lead with 3 minutes remaining. Los Angeles answered in less than a minute as Roman Gabriel hit Steve Heckard for a 62 yard catch and run to tie the ball game at the end of quarter one.
The second quarter was one of frustration for the Packers with fumbles and miscues giving the Rams short fields. The only bright spot for the Pack was their defense, which held the Rams to just two field goals.
