(GREEN BAY) - Green Bay snowplowed to a pair of fourth
quarter touchdowns and a 25-21 victory over the San
Francisco 49ers before 13,196 fans in wind-swept frigid City
Stadium. A bitter northwest win swept the field, which was
covered by snow, as the Packers closed out their home
schedule. Snow, which started falling Saturday night,
continued throughout the game with the temperature about
20 degrees. San Francisco, with Frankie Albert at the throttle
all the way, pulled into an eight-point lead in the third period
but the Packers refused to quit and cashed in a pair of tallies
in the waning minutes to rack up their third victory in 10 NFL
games. The loss was the 49ers' eighth in 11 starts.
The payoff touchdown came on a 44-yard pass play from
Paul Christman to rookie Floyd "Breezy" Reid with three
minutes to play. Reid took the pitch on the Frisco 15-yard
line and skidded into the end zone. Despite the miserable
weather, both clubs exhibited vigorous offenses. The 49ers
rolled for 179 yards on the ground and 97 through the air on
seven completed Albert passes in 23 attempts. The
Packers racked up 131 yards rushing and 170 passing on
11 completions in 23 tosses by Tobin Rote and Christman.
San Francisco jumped off to a touchdown lead in the first
quarter on a short smash through the middle by Johnny
Strzykalski and the first of three conversions by Gordon
Soltau but the Packers tied it up with only seconds
remaining in the period on a 57-yard skidding run around
right end by Billy Grimes. Ted Fritsch made his only
conversion of the game.
Green Bay took the lead with two second of the half
showing when Rote hit Al Baldwin with a 48-yard pass and
Tony Canadeo crashed center to leave it at 13-7 at the half.
Two breaks led to Frisco's other scores early in the third
period. Grimes fumbled the opening kickoff and Harvey
Dow recovered on the Packer 23. On the seventh play, Fred
Gehrke slithered through the middle. Minutes later, Hal
Schoener stole the ball out of Rote's hand as he faced to
pass on the Packer 30. A pass, Albert to Emil Sitko, on the
eighth play rang the bell and Frisco led, 21-13. The
Packers' winning touchdowns came in the final six minutes
of the game. A poor punt by Albert gave them possession
on their own 14 and Reid went over in four plays. Three
minutes later, with Christman replacing Rote, the long pass
to Reid paid off.

DECEMBER 1 (Manitowoc Herald-Times) - The Green Bay
Packers are on their way to the West Coast with high
hopes of scoring one and possibly two victories in their
last two contests of the 1950 NFL season. The Packers
will meet the powerful Rams in Los Angeles Sunday and
then close against the San Francisco 49ers there Sunday
December 10. The Rams will be playing their last game of
the regulation season and, for them, it's a must win
situation because they are still in the running with an 8-3
record. The Chicago Bears, with 8-2, whipped the Rams
last Sunday and the Packers likely will find the Rams on
the ferocious side. The Packers, jilted out of three games
already this season, gained enough confidence in their 25
to 21 victory over the Forty-Niners at the bay last Sunday
to give the Rams a hard time. In the opener between the 
two clubs, the Rams came out with a 45 to 14 decision
after the Packers spent the entire first quarter in Los
Angeles territory and failed to score. What's more the
Packers dropped a dozen passes, any three of which have
made it a close battle and given the Bays a chance to win.
The Packers will enter the contest with a 3-7 record, one
victory better than their 1949 standing of 2-10. The Packers,
in whipping 'Frisco, snapped a six game losing streak. They
had defeated the Bears and the Washington Redskins previously. The Packers came out of last Sunday's blizzard swept game in good physical condition, although fullback Jack Cloud has a damaged eye. He suffered the injury in the first half, but came back to score a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Packer offense has been strengthened with the addition of end Bob Mann, the former University of Michigan and Detroit Negro pass catcher. Mann reported to Green Bay last Saturday, digested a few pass patterns, and played in spots Sunday. He caught an eight yard pass from Tobin Rote and delivered the block that permitted Billy Grimes to go 57 yards for a TD.
DECEMBER 1 (Los Angeles) - Green Bay's scrappy Packers, already better than the 1949 team on paper and far superior on the field, will shoot for an upset victory over the Los Angeles Rams in a game here tomorrow. The Packers have won three of 10 games and have made a thrilling fight out of most of their defeats for fifth place in the league's National Conference. They still have two games to go - against the favored Rams tomorrow and the underdog San Francisco a week later. A year ago, the Packers shuffled to only two victories in the 12-game season. Los Angeles, only a half game behind the Chicago Bears in the National Conference title race, will try to break the all-time league record for total yardage in their season finale tomorrow. They need 183 yards to best the Bears' mark of 5,503, set in 1947. The Packers face the highest-scoring team in the league's history. Los Angeles has scored 415 points in 11 games - 19 points more than the record of 396 set by the Bears in 1941. Green Bay has scored 216 points in 10 games.

Sunday November 26th 1950 (at Green Bay)
DECEMBER 3 (Los Angeles) - A week ago, Gene Ronzani's Green Bay Packers showed they were pretty good polar bears as they beat the San Francisco Forty-Niners in the cold and snow of Green Bay. Sunday, they will step out in the Coliseum here to try to show they can do just as well in the balmy weather of the citrus belt. The occasion will be the return meeting with the high flying Los Angeles Rams. The game will start at 4 o'clock (Milwaukee time). There was little in the first meeting in Milwaukee three weeks ago to indicate that the Packers might have a chance now. They were roundly trounced, 45-14. They didn't score until the closing minute of play. It was such a low point in their season, though, that some of the performance can unquestionably be discounted. They are a much better club than that score suggests. How well they succeed in redeeming themselves will depend first upon how much a defense they can throw up, for defense, above all, they must have. The Rams haven't been any great shakes this fall stopping anybody else - they even rank with the poorer defensive clubs in the league. But they have certainly been able to move the ball themselves and they will go into the game needing only 183 yards to break the all-time record for total yardage in a season. The Bears set the mark of 5,053 yards in 1947. The Rams, largely through a pass attack engineered by Norm Van Brocklin and Bob Waterfield, have piled up 
4,969. The game is a "must" for the Rams who still have championship hopes. With a record of 8-3, they trail the leading Chicago Bears by only a half game in the National conference of the league. The combination of a Ram victory and a Bear defeat in either of the two games the Bears have left will throw the divisional race into a tie and bring about a playoff. Los Angeles ruled a three touchdown choice Saturday night. A crowd of 20,000 was expected.
