(CHICAGO) - An underdog started to growl at the Green Bay Packers at the White Sox field here Sunday. The "dog" was the rejuvenated Chicago Cardinal eleven. It started in the final period and soon its growl turned into a bark and the bark into a bite that sank deep in the bodies of the Packers. However, the Packers managed to shake off the vicious canine in time to squeeze over a 7 to 6 victory, but they learned what it was to play a team that puts up a whirlwind finish. The first three quarters of the game was all in favor of the Green Bay squad, although it failed to show the power and drive displayed in other games this year. The final period was a different story, however, and the Cardinals came to life with a bang, throwing passes, smashing through the Packer line on triple pass plays and in general making life miserable for Bay players and their fans. The combination of Ernie Nevers, Cobb Rooney and Kassel were the principal offenders to the Packer peace of mind in that frenzied final period. They figured prominently in almost every play that kept the Packers continually on the defense in their own territory. Then late in the period came a long pass with Nevers on the throwing side and Kassel receiving that brought the Cardinals a touchdown. Kassel caught the ball on the ten-yard line and easily eluded Blood and Kotal to run over the line. The marker brought the Cardinal score to within one point of the Packer total which was earned in the second period. Eight thousand fans held their breaths as Nevers dropped back to try for the extra point that would mean a tie or a defeat. The kick was rushed as Packer linemen charged in like demons and the ball went wide of the posts.
It is hard to figure just what was wrong with the Bays
in the final period. They stopped Nevers and his mates
effectively in the early stages of the game but seemed
to be "bushed" when the Cardinals began to show their
fangs. The forward pass defense got tangled up in its
anxiety to stop the Cardinal march, and the linemen
were often pulled out of position and plays that were
smeared for losses early in the game worked like
charms to gain yardage. Although the Bays outplayed
the Cardinals in the early periods, their plays lacked
the snap and fire that has characterized efforts in other
triumphs. They had the ball in Cardinal territory
continually the first three periods, but invariably 
something went wrong and no score was recorded. 
Early in the game, the Packers got the advantage by an
exchange of punts and a pass, Lewellen to Lavvie
Dilweg, brought the ball to the four-yard line. Lavvie
made a great catch of the ball and then reversed his 
field to dodge two Cardinal players and carry the ball
about 30 yards before he was stopped. Bo Molenda
carried the oval to the one year marker and Lewellen
tried a smash over the right tackle. He made the goal,
but was tackled high and hard and fumbled, Nevers
recovering on his own one-foot line. Nevers punted out
of danger and the first Packer threat was stopped. After
that there were a number of other openings for the Bays
but only on one occasion did they take advantage of a
scoring chance.
It was Eddie Kotal who made the opening that the Bays
took advantage of to score. The Packers had the ball on
the 18 yard line after Hubbard recovered a Cardinal
fumble but lost the oval on downs. Nevers again punted
out and Lew likewise kicked, the ball going over the
goal line. The Cardinals took the ball on their own 20
yard line and on the first play tried a pass to Cobb
Rooney. The ball hit Rooney's chest and then landed in
the arms of Eddie Kotal, who ran it back to the 19 yard
line before he was stopped. Eddie picked up three yards
through a hole at guard and Bo added four more yards
through center. Lew then dropped back to the 20 yard
line in punt formation, but instead of kicking, went 
around right end behind excellent blocking, changed his
pace, shifted to the left and dove over the goal line as
two Cardinal men tried to tackle him. The ever-reliable
toe of Red Dunn sent the ball squarely between the
uprights for the extra point that was to mean victory for
Green Bay. After that there was some good football and
some bad, with neither side getting beyond the 10 yard
line until the fourth quarter when the Cardinals did their
The Packers got down beyond the Cardinal 20 yard line
on two other occasions later in the game but nothing
came of their efforts. In the third period, a pass, Dunn to
Eddie Kotal brought the ball to the Cardinal 15 yard line.
Three plays gained a few yards and Bo Molenda 
dropped back to try a placekick. The ball was blocked
and recovered by Dowling who started galloping madly
down the field with the oval tucked under his arm. Lavvie
Dilweg managed to catch Darling and tackle him in midfield, to prevent the Cardinal end from continuing on his way to a touchdown. John Blood broke through the Cardinal line for two fine gains at the start of the fourth period, going 14 yards on his first try and 17 on the second to carry the ball to the Cardinal 27 yard line. Two plays netted the Packers five yards but two passes were incomplete and the Cardinals took the ball on downs on their own 22 yard line. It was from this point that the Cardinals started the "Big Parade". Nevers and Rooney alternated in carrying the ball for two successive first downs and then a punt sent the oval to the Packer 29 yard line. Lew got off his only bad kick of the season when he punted out and the Cardinals took the ball in midfield and resumed the march that was to end in a touchdown, as was related previously in this narrative. For those who care for statistics, it might be interesting to know that the Cardinals made 11 first downs to 7 for the Packers. The Cardinals made two first downs in the first half and the Packers three. The Cardinals completed four of 10 passes for a gain of 60 yards. The Packers completed six of 17 passes for gains totaling 119 yards. The Packers gained 118 yards from scrimmage and the Cardinals made 93 yards on running plays. Nevers, Cobb Rooney, Kassel and Duke Slater, giant negro tackle, were outstanding for the Cardinals, Lavvie Dilweg and Michalske looked best for the Packers. Few of the other Packer players turned in the kind of football they are capable of playing.

​Sunday October 27th 1929 (at Chicago)
OCTOBER 28 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - It was a perfect day for football when the Cardinals and Packers took the field at Chicago. The sun was warm and there was little wind to interfere with punts. The White Sox field gave the appearance of a college bowl as it was enclosed on all four sides with double-decked grandstand seats running clear around the diamond...The Woodlawn Post American Legion band and drill team put on an impressive ceremony before the game, marching out on the field and going through splendid drills. The team is the National champion drill
corps...It is not hard to understand why Ernie Nevers
was almost a unanimous choice for an All-American
berth in his college days. The former Coast star does
everything well. He can hit the line, skirt and end, throw
bullet-like passes and punt with any back in the league
with the exception of Lewellen...Lew got off some fine
punts that helped a lot to give the Packers the edge in
the first three periods. The boots averaged about 15
yards more than those of Nevers...The Cardinals had a
great pair of tackles working for them Sunday in Tinsley
and Slater. Tinsley, who plays without a head gear,
replaced Williams when the latter received a dislocated
elbow in a play...Jug Earpe, veteran Packer center, 
sprained his arm early in the game and gave way to
Darling, who played good consistent football at the pivot
position. Dr. Kelly announced that the injury would
probably lay Earpe up for five days or more...Don Hill,
who was with the Packers in their early games this
year, worked in the first and fourth periods for the Cardinals. His play was fair but not outstanding...Paul Minnick, who joined the Packers recently saw his first action of the year with the team Sunday. Minnick went at guard in the second half of the game. He broke through on a few occasions to toss Cardinal backs for losses...Michalske played his usual brilliant game in the first two periods, but in the third and fourth quarters charged in too quickly occasionally and missed the tackles on delayed buck plays...Dick O'Donnell and Dilweg played the full 60 minutes at ends, both played good football, although Dilweg was in the spotlight oftener than was O'Donnell. Hubbard and Michalske also played every minute of the game. Hubbard held his own most of the time against Cardinal tackle...Red Dunn handled the quarterback position faultlessly again. He made some nice returns of punts and was a capable field general. Red was guilty of two fumbles but recovered on both occasions. 
OCTOBER 29 (Minneapolis Star) - Minneapolis fans next Sunday will have a chance to gaze upon what many critics say is the most powerful team ever organized in professional football. The aggregation is the mighty Green Bay Packers who remain undefeated in
the National league with six victories to their credit. The
Chicago Cardinals have been the only team to give
them a close battle and that ended, 7 to 6. Owing to 
the fact that Minneapolis took the Cards, 14 to 7, there
are those who think that the game at Nicollet park 
Sunday may develop a surprise result. The Packes
include so many players of All-Eastern, All-Western
and All-American renown that their roster reads like a
blue book of the gridiron game. That the Badger city 
takes its football seriously may be seen in the case of
Verne Lewellen, the famous Nebraska halfback and
captain . He liked Green Bay so well after playing
football there that he settled in the town and took up the
practice of law. So big a hit did he make with the
citizens they elected him district attorney last fall by a
large majority. His election surprised politicians as he
was one of the few Republicans successful in that
sector last November. A large crowd of fans always
follows the club unless the distance is too great. Those
who stay at home assemble in an auditorium of 3,000
capacity and get the contest in a play by play 
description with a gridgraph. No matter whether the
Packers are performing in New York, Philadelphia or
Boston, a wire is leased just the same. Plans have 
been made during the week for a leased wire to Nicollet park Sunday. Herb Joesting said today that all his men were in good shape following the game with the Bears. The only serious casualty was Kenny Haycraft, who has his nose pushed to one side of his face and slightly fractured. The proboscis was well on the way to recovery today. Despite the wintry blasts that swept across the gridiron, the Jackets engaged in practice Monday at Nicollet.
OCTOBER 30 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - An overnight hop to Minneapolis is the nest thing in store for the Green Bay Packers. The Bays will invade the Minnesota city Sunday seeking their seventh consecutive National league victory. Capt. "Curley" Lambeau is giving the teama stiff dose of practice for the tilt against Herb Joesting and his mates. The blocking was not all it should have been last weekend, and the forward passing defense also looked ragged at times, so particular stress is being laid on these departments of the game this week. The Red Jackets took a whipping at 
the hands of the Bears last week, so they will not be in 
a receptive frame of mind when they meet the Packers
again. They also remember the 24 to 0 setback handed
them in Green Bay, which likewise helps to stir them to
greater things. Herb Joesting has a good collection of
players, but they have failed to function smoothly in
most of their games. They played real football a few
weeks ago when they turned back the Cardinals, but
since that time has been "off" their game. It is likely
that they will come to life against the Packers, and if
the Green Bay players get the idea they have a setup,
they might experience the surprise of the year and
"take it on the chin".
OCTOBER 30 (Minneapolis Star) - Word from Green
Bay today indicates that several of the Packer stars are
not feeling any too well after the terrific pummeling they
received from the Chicago Cardinals last Sunday. This
coupled with the fact that the Minneapolis Red Jackets
are all in prime condition, gives the local boys an idea
that they will have the distinction of being the first 
eleven in the country to halt the winning streak of the
wild men from Wisconsin. Despite the recent inclement
weather, the Jacks have been working daily at a greater
speed and intensity than at any other stage of the
season. Several changes will be made in the lineup for
next Sunday's game at Nicollet Park, and the boys 
think they will be at the top of their power by that time.
To a man, they realize that if they can tip over Green
Bay, they will be recognized as the big shots of the
National league. For that reason they have set their
hearts to a win. And those who have watched the grim
determination of the athletes this week say there is a
mighty good chance for an upset in the dope. Realizing
the danger of the Packers' passing game the Joestings
are working hard on an airtight defense against that
contingency. They are also working hard on the offense
and several new and complicated plays are being
mastered. Word from Green Bay is to the effect that
the loyal fans down in that sector have a wholesome
regard for the power of the Jackets. They fell that a
team that is able to trim the Cardinals by a decisive
score must have considerable football acumen. Twice
the Packers had their hands full winning from Nevers'
crew. The first time the score was 9 to 3, and the 
second clash ended 7 to 6. In the first game, the
Chicagoans had the battle won until the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. A big turnout is expected Sunday because it will be the final appearance of the Joestings in Minneapolis this year.
OCTOBER 30 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - Green Bay, sensation of the NFL, is polishing up its artillery this week for the clash at Nicollet park Sunday with the Red Jackets. The Packers have won six games and lost none to date. The Chicago Cardinals have the Packers a close battle. The game ended 7-6. Owing to the fact that Minneapolis won from the Cards, 14-7, there are those who think that the games at Nicollet park Sunday may develop a surprise result. The Packers' lineup included numerous players of All-Eastern, All-Western and All-American renown. A large crowd of Packer fans always accompanies the team unless the distance is too great. Those who stay at home assemble in an auditorium and get the contest in a play by play description. Herb Joesting said Tuesday that all his men were in good shape following the game with the Bears.
OCTOBER 31 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - The Minneapolis Red Jackets Wednesday were of firm opinion that they would be the first eleven to defeat the Green Bay Packers in National league play. Several reasons were assigned for this belief. One was that the
men from the Badger commonwealth are in a highly
battered state as a result of their bruising battle with
the Cardinals last Sunday. Another is that the locals
are in tip-top physical trim and are determined to win.
Despite the recent inclement weather, the locals have
been working daily at a greater speed and intensity
than at any other stage of the season. Several changes
will be made in the lineup for Sunday's game at
Nicollet park and the boys think they will be at the top
of their power by that time. Realizing the danger of the
Packers' passing game, the Joestings are working hard
on an airtight defense against that contingency. They
also are working hard on an offense and several new

considerable football power. Twice the Packers had
their hands full winning from Nevers' crew. The first time
the score was 9 to 3 and the second clash ended 7 to
OCTOBER 31 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Captain
Curly Lambeau and his Packer football players will pull
out tomorrow evening over the Northwestern road for 
Minneapolis where they battle Herb Joesting and other
stars of the Northwest in a National league game. The
team will arrive in Minneapolis early Saturday and is
expected to take a short workout at the American
association baseball park some time during the day.
The game Sunday will be played at the ball park. The
team will stop at Nicollet hotel while in Minneapolis.
The Packers went through another stiff workout here
this morning. Most of the players came through the
game against the Cardinals in good shape and will be
able to play against the Red Jackets. Jug Earpe, 
veteran center, still is suffering somewhat from a 
sprained arm, and may be missing from the front wall.
Darling will fill in the center post if Earpe is not able to
play. Eddie Kotal, who played more than half the game
against the Cardinals with a leather brace on his back,
is recovering rapidly and is expected to be in good
shape again Sunday. Eddie was greatly handicapped
last Sunday with the injury to his back, received in the
game against the Red Jackets here two weeks ago.
Capt. Lambeau announced today that Bullet Baker who
has been with the Packers for two years and who was
released last week, has signed to play with the 
Chicago Cardinals. Baker will make the eastern trip with the Cardinals this weekend and will play in the Frankford and Providence games Friday and Saturday.
NOVEMBER 1 (Minneapolis Star) - Green Bay, Wis.,
today was threatening to send up its famous lumberjack
band to officiate at the game next Sunday between the
Red Jackets at Nicolett Park. This musical organization
is not much on looks but its reputation is as far flung as
the limits of the NFL. The band performs only during the
football season and is never heard at a game unless the
Packers are away from home. It is made up of obscure
and permanent business men - merchants, bankers,
mechanics and professional men. When the call is
sounded for a trip out of town, the boys let their hair and
whiskers grow, and garbed in mackinaws, they always
live up to the best traditions of Paul Bunyan and his
mighty men. None of the musicians is paid and their
traveling expenses are defrayed by public subscription.
To cut down the overhead, the artists always travel in
day coaches, in the best lumberjack style. A move was
started in Green Bay today to raise the expense money
and, if it succeeds, Minneapolis will hear and see this
renowned group. Since the inception of the football
movement there, the band has been an important part
of the scheme. Pro football, by the way, started down
there in 1918. Since then, the eleven has played 120
games with a record of 78 won, 28 lost and 14 tied. In
1921, the club joined the National league and has never
finished ,lower than sixth place. Despite the rain of the
last few days, Managers Val Ness and John Dunn are
making elaborate plans for Sunday's game and are
preparing for the best crowd of the season. The fact that
it is the last of the home schedule and that the mighty
Packers will be the attraction, give the owners an idea
the largest professional football crowd in the history of
the city will be in attendance.
NOVEMBER 1 (Minneapolis Star Tribune) - Snow and
rain have failed to dampen the ardor of the Joesting Red
Jackets this week in their practice for the contest with
Green Bay Sunday at Nicollet park. Paying no attention
to the weather, the squad has been drilling for more 
than two hours daily all week. The players feel that it
they must perform Sunday on a heavy field that this
week's experience will stand them in good stead. Green
Bay reports that the whole town is pulling for a victory
and that a large delegation of fans will accompany the
team. Fourteen members of the team live the year
round in Green Bay. Earl Lambeau, former Notre Dame
star, is the coach and he handles the squad like a 
college coach. The men practice every day except
Monday. In six games at the municipal stadium at 
Green Bay this year, the attendance was close to the
47,000 mark. The game between the Packers and the
Bears drew 13,000.

Providence. This crashing fullback, who once was an all-America pro selection, seems to have found himself again and he is plunging like he did for dear old Syracuse...Sedbrook, one of the best running backs of the New York Giants, is picking up a lot of yardage outside of tackle. Several of his playmates in the backfield are great blockers and they generally open a hole a mile wide.
NOVEMBER 1 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers left Green Bay today for Minneapolis where they meet the Minneapolis Red Jackets on Sunday. They scored a lopsided win over Joesting and Co. in a recent game at Green Bay. "Bullet" Baker, a backfield star who has been with the Packers for two years has been released to the Chicago Cardinals and will make the eastern trip with the Cardinals.
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Unless the unexpected happens Sunday, the Green Bay Packers will take another step up the ladder that leads to the National professional football championship. The Bays will try to climb nearer the goal and increase their lead in the National league at the expense of Herb Joesting and other Red Jacket players in a game to be played at the American association park in Minneapolis. If Joesting and his mates play the kind of football they did against the Cardinals a few weeks ago, the Packers may find all of their plans upset and have a defeat chalked against them for the first time this year. The Bays are taking the game seriously, however, and have put in a hard week of practice. The entire squad, with the exception of Jug Earpe, is in good shape and will be fighting from the start to the finish to keep its record clean, and win the eighth consecutive game of the year. Jug Earpe, who has been the outstanding center in mid-western professional circles this year, may not be able to see action. "The Jugger" had his elbow wrenched last week and it still gives him a little trouble. Earpe will go with the team, however, and, if needed, will go into the game. Darling has been turning in some fine football recently, however, and probably will be able to handle the center position the entire game. For the first time in eleven year, Capt. Curly Lambeau will be missing when a Packer team takes the field. Lambeau was called out of town on other important business and will not be in Minneapolis with the squad. Verne Lewellen will be in charge in Curly's absence. Dr. W.W. Kelly, president of the Packer corporation, also will be with the team. Cully Lidberg, because of his knowledge of Minnesota plays, is expected to see most of the action in the Packers' fullback position, working with Lewellen, Dunn and Kotal. Blood and McCrary also are expected to see a lot of service as halfbacks and Bo Molenda may relieve Lidberg part of the time. Eddie Kotal has recovered from his recent injury to his hip and is expected to be as flashy as ever. Nydahl, Erickson, Sandberg and Joesting are likely to see most of the backline service for the Red Jackets. Ursella
and Willegale also are available for backfield duties. The same Packer line that played against the Cardinals will be used Sunday, with the exception of the guard position. Whitey Woodin, veteran center flanker, is expected to alternate with Bowdoin on the right side of the line, with Michalske at the other guard post.
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - When the Packers take the field at the American association park in Minneapolis tomorrow, several hundred Green Bay fans will be in the Fern room of the Columbus club, waiting for the game to be re-played on the grid-graph board. A direct wire from Minneapolis to the Columbus club will carry a play-by-play account of the game, and trained operators will flash the action on the board a few moments after it happens in Minneapolis. The board shows scrimmage plays, offside penalties, forward passes, punts and other details of the game. First reports will come in about 1:30 p.m. and the game will get underway at 2 p.m. An added attraction at the Fern room will be a broadcast over the Vita-Vox system of the Platten radio company, of the Bear-Giant game in Chicago. Reports of the progress of the Chicago game will be given from time to time. Music played by one of the finest types of electric phonographs will also help to enliven the afternoon. The American sales company will present the musical program.
NOVEMBER 2 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - If it weren't for the air mail, the Packers might be playing football in their "Sunday clothes" at Minneapolis tomorrow. Bud Jorgensen, property man for the Big Bay Blues, handles the trunks and takes care of the trunk keys. Yesterday, the Packers' train pulled out, but Mr. Jorgensen was not aboard. And the trunk keys were in Mr. Jorgensen's pocket, he discovered late last evening. The property man placed them in an envelope, pasted it full of air mail stamps and sent it on the 12:30 train for Chicago. It was thought the keys would reach G.W. Calhoun, Packer secretary, this morning.
NOVEMBER 2 (Minneapolis Star) - The 1929 curtain will be rung down on professional football in Minneapolis at Nicollet park tomorrow when Herb Joesting and his Red Jackets clash with Bo Molenda's mighty Packers from Green Bay. Particular interest is attached to this contest, because the visitors have the distinction of having won all six games they have played this year in the NFL. If the Jackets can upset the overconfident lads from the lake district of Wisconsin, they will immediately assume the limelight of all the professional football world. Despite a previous defeat at the hands of the Packers, the Joesting crew feels it is the team that has been ordained to trip up the fast sailing league leaders. Another reason for the Red Jackets' hunch is that, although they crashed the Chicago Cardinals for a 14-7 win, Green Bay's Packers were able to defeat Nevers' club last Sunday by only one point. The Jackets have been putting in some terrific practice licks during the week, and with a revamped lineup, a set of new plays and plenty determination, they will enter the contest with all sorts of courage. Local fans well remember the hard plunging Bo Molenda when he played at Michigan. Joesting has been seen in action at Nicollet park against another famous fullback, Ernie Nevers, and now the fans will have an opportunity to see him match wits against Molenda, an equally famous fullback. Bo's supporting cast is made up of a set of formidable footballers.
NOVEMBER 3 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Minneapolis Red Jackets are primed for their greatest football clash this afternoon at Nicollet park where they tangle with the formidable Green Bay Packers. The game is scheduled to start at 2 o'clock. In six games
played to date in the NFL, the Green Bay gridders have
been undefeated. They have high hopes of dangling the
scalps of Joesting's men from their victorious belts, but
just as confident are the locals of handing the touted
Packers their first defeat of the season. Joesting said
Saturday he had made several material changes in his
lineup and that he feels the Jackets will go into action
at the peak of their offensive and defensive strength. 
Inasmuch, too, that the contest will close the season 
for this year in Minneapolis, the Jackets are anxious to
show to their best advantage. For the information of the
fans it may be mentioned that five undisputed All-
American performers will be seen in action. They are
Joesting and Haycraft for Minneapolis, and Tom Nash of
Georgia, Hurdis McCrary of the same school and 
August Michalske of Penn State for the Packers. 
Among the other big men that Green Bay will send into
action today may be mentioned Carl Lidberg, former
Minnesota fullback; Red Smith of Notre Dame; Paul
Minick of Iowa; Bill Kern of Pittsburgh; Jim Bowdoin of
Alabama; Verne Lewellen of Nebraska; Bo Molenda of
Michigan; Claude Perry of Alabama; Lavvie Dilweg of Marquette; Bullet Baker of California and Red Dunn of Marquette. Plans have been made for a capacity crowd at Nicollet Park, with a large delegation expected from Green Bay.
