Ron Jaworski threw touchdown passes of 26 yards to Harold Carmichael and 14 yards to No. 1 draft pick Mike Quick as the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 14-7, in Philadelphia last night for their first exhibition victory.
The Eagles lost their first game last week to Tampa Bay. It was the second defeat for New England, which had previously lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Eagles took a 7-0 lead on their second possession after failing to score on a 73-yard opening drive. The Eagles turned over the ball when they fell just short of the end zone after four running plays.
Philadelphia got the ball back on a punt and moved 58 yards on seven plays, scoring on Jaworski's pass to Carmichael.
In the third period, Jaworski directed a 12-play, 91-yard drive after New England's Rich Camarillo punted out of bounds at the Philadelphia 9. Jaworski completed five throws in the drive. The 14-yarder was the first touchdown reception in the pros for Quick, a former North Carolina State wide receiver.
New England finally scored in the fourth period when, after a fumble recovery by Rich Smith at the Eagles' 47, quarterback Steve Grogan passed to wide receiver Stanley Morgan on third and 15; Morgan made the catch in the corner of the end zone for a 41-yard touchdown.
Last year, the Eagles' defense was ranked as the best in the league.
Packers 41, Bengals 27: Rich Campbell passed for third-quarter touchdowns of nine yards to Gary Lewis and 11 to Wamon Buggs, as Green Bay (1-1) rallied to defeat Cincinnati (1-1) in Milwaukee.
The Packers intercepted four passes -- with safety Maurice Harvey catching two -- and recovered three fumbles. Cornerback Virgil Livers ran 36 yards for a touchdown with one of the fumble recoveries.
"We've had 11 turnovers in two games," said Bengals Coach Forrest Gregg. "I don't know anyone in the world who can win with 5 1/2 turnovers a game.
"Right now don't ask me to say anything good about this football team. I'm not very charitable."
Last season, the Packers forced a league-leading 54 turnovers.
"A lot of it is because of hustle, and a lot of it is an excellent defensive scheme," Harvey said. "Everybody knows his assignment and we know when to go for the ball."
