(MINNESOTA) - The Vikings, trailing the Packers 30-14 in the final period, narrowed that gap to two points. Fran Tarkenton passed 29 yards to Paul Flatley for one touchdown and then set up Bill Brown's one yard touchdown plunge with two minutes remaining. Herb Adderley then saved the day, by blocking a potential game-winning field goal try by Fred Cox with less than two minutes to play. Hank Gremminger picked up the loose ball and ran 80 yards for a clinching touchdown as the Packers won, 37-28. Bart Starr passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns in the win.
