1965 IN REVIEW
Despite the offense being no better than 12th in the NFL, Green Bay won its first title in three years, thanks to its third-ranked defense. Jim Taylor failed to crack the 1,000-yard mark in rushing for the
first time since 1959, and Green Bay's 3.4 yards per rush average was the worst since 1946. In nine games, Green Bay was outrushed by its opponent, but managed to win five of those contests. The
Packer defense recorded 44 sacks (3rd best in the NFL) and an NFL-best 27 interceptions. Don Chandler replaced Paul Hornung as kicker and was good on 17 of 26 attempts, while Hornung had
missed an NFL-record 26 field goals the previous year. One sad note came in June, when Packer founder Curly Lambeau died of a heart attack, leading to the renaming of City Stadium before the first
pre-season game. Lombardi also signed a contract extension through 1974 in November.
LOMBARDI STAYS HOME...FOR NOW
     When he first arrived in Green Bay, Vince Lombardi signed a five-year contract with an annual salary of $36,000 plus bonus clauses. In his first season, the Packers responded with a surprising
7-5 record, and New York Giants owner Wellington Mara approached his former assistant about replacing Jim Lee Howell as head coach. One year later, the Packers were in the NFL title game, which
they lost, and, once again, Mara approached Lombardi about replacing Howell, who had retired. This time, Lombardi thought about the offer a little longer, but remained in Green Bay, where he would
win the next two championships. As a reward for his decision to stay, the Packers renewed and extended Lombardi's contract in 1961 and 1963. The next serious challenge to Lombardi tenure in
Titletown came in 1965. The expansion Atlanta Falcons apparently approached the legendary coach about taking over their team, as coach and general manager, when it began play in 1966. While
we will never know how lucrative the offer was or how serious it was taken, Lombardi turned the Falcons down, but recommended his assistance coach, Norb Hecker. The Lombardi magic did not
follow Hecker, who went 4-26-1 before being fired after starting the 1968 season 0-3. The Packers once again rewarded Lombardi for staying in Green Bay, with another contract extension. This one
would run through January 31st 1974. There would be one more serious attempt to lure Lombardi from Green Bay. In late 1965, after firing Bill McPeak, the Washington Redskins asked Lombard if he
was interested in moving to the nation's capital. The coach turned the Redskins down, and they offered the position to Otto Graham, the former Cleveland Browns quarterbacking great. After seeing Graham fail in three season to give Washington its first winning season since 1955, the Redskins again approached Lombardi after the 1968 season. This time, they offered a piece of ownership as an incentive, and, this time, it worked. The Lombardi legacy was moving east, and the Packers were left with a contract that was supposed to run until 1974.

(GREEN BAY) - The Packers, led by Bart Starr's passing and a bruising defense, hammered the Giants 44-7 Saturday night in the exhibition opener for both teams before a crowd of 50,837. Starr completed 10 of 12 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns, including a 51-yard strike to Carroll Dale and a eight-yard bullet to Bob Long to account for the first two Packer scores. Tom Brown, a second-year man from Maryland, got off the longest run of the night, an electrifying 92-yard punt return for the Packers' sixth touchdown.

(MILWAUKEE) - The Packers scored three touchdowns in the second quarter Saturday and went on to bury the Bears 31-14 for their second exhibition victory. A sell-out crowd of 47,006, a record for the Midwest Shrine game, watched the two teams match bruising defenses through the first period before the Packers marched 43 yards for their first touchdown. Quarterback Bart Starr, Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor led the Packer offensive drive. Green Bay scored twice more before the half ended, on short runs by Tom Moore and Elijah Pitts. Green Bay added a 41-yard field goal by Don Chandler in the fourth period and scored again on an 80-yard pass from Zeke Bratkowski to Bob Long. The Bears got two consolation touchdowns in the closing minutes of play with second-year quarterback Larry Rakestraw guiding both drives. The Packers so dominated things in the first half that the Bears were able to get only two first downs and 34 yards passing and rushing. Green Bay, in that same time, picked up 191 yards in 15 first downs. Starr, who completed 12 of 21 passes, was named the game's most valuable player on offense. Willie Wood ,who intercepted one Bears pass and returned a punt 24 yards to set up the Packers' first touchdown, was named the game's outstanding defensive player.

(DALLAS) - The Dallas Cowboys, shielding goal line with an ironclad defense, stunned the previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers Saturday night in an exhibition before a record 67,954 fans. The Cowboys roared from behind with two touchdowns in the third quarter, the second set up by a pass interception by linebacker Chuck Howley at the Packer 4-yard line. Don Perkins crashed into the end zone on the next play for a 14-9 Cowboy lead and Dallas added another touchdown in the final minute of the game. The Packers threatened continually in the first half, but their drives stalled time after time in the face of the crushing Dallas defense that kept its goal-line uncrossed. Don Chandler kicked two field goals in the first half for Green Bay after Paul Hornung's early three-pointer. Chandler added another field goal in the fourth quarter. The crowd was the largest ever to watch a Cowboys home game. It was Dallas' first victory ever over the Packers after five years in the NFL.

(CLEVELAND) - The Packers stopped the champions Saturday night in the second game of an exhibition doubleheader. Bart Starr threw a short touchdown pass and Elijah Pitts and Paul Hornung cracked for short yardage scores. The Detroit Lions came from behind with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to edge the New York Giants 25-21 in the first game before a standing room crowd of 83,118, largest to watch a pre-season game this year. The Packers snapped the Browns' eight-game exhibition victory string set over two years with Starr's precision passing and a blitzing defense against and quarterback Frank Ryan.

(GREEN BAY) - Bart Starr and Paul Homung provided the offensive thrust as the Green Bay Packers won their fourth exhibition in five outings, downing the St. Louis Cardinals 31-13 before a record home crowd of 50,858 Saturday night. Starr passed for three touchdowns, one of them to Hornung, who also threw a touchdown strike. Don Chandler added a 15-yard field goal for the Packers. Meanwhile, the Packer defense held the Cardinals without a touchdown until the final period when Charley Johnson hit Sonny Randle on a 19-yard scoring pass. Jim Bakken contributed the other Cardinal scores with two 15-yard field goals.

(PITTSBURGH) - Playing in sweltering heat, the Packers opened a season on the road for the first time since 1948. Bart Starr's passing and alert ball hawking by the defense earned the Green Bay Packers a 41-9 triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Starr, the league's top passer in 1964, threw two touchdown passes. The defense intercepted three passes and recovered one fumble, turning all Steeler miscues into scores. The Steelers, losers of five straight exhibition games and making their bow under new Coach Mike Nixon, held a 9-7 margin at halftime on three field goals by Mike Clark, but fell apart in the second half. Starr caught fire in the second half, hitting Marv Fleming with a 1-yard touchdown toss and Paul Hornung with a 10-yarder. Herb Adderley grabbed two pass interceptions and returned one 29 yards for the Packers first touchdown in the second quarter. Ray Nitschke grabbed the other to set up a 4th quarter score by Elijah Pitts. He scored the final touchdown after a fumble recovery.

Don Chandler's first field goal, a game-tying 22-yarder with 1:58 remaining in regulation, remains controversial to this day. Baltimore fans claimed it sailed wide right. The kick, which flew high above the upright, actually triggered the league to extend the goal posts' height for the following season. Chandler’s game-winning field goal (seen above), at 13:39 of sudden death, ended the Packers' first-ever overtime game, and their only such playoff contest until 2003. His 25-yard kick sent Green Bay to the N.F.L. championship. Below is the coverage of the game from Sports Illustrated. (Credit - Packerville, USA)
(MILWAUKEE) - The Baltimore Colts fumbled away their chance for a quick getaway in the National Football League's Western Division title chase and they had no one to blame but the Green Bay Packers' jarring defense. The defending division titlists, 20-17 losers to the Packers, surrendered the ball four times on fumbles. The miscues set up a Green Bay field goal and a touchdown while shortcircuiting two likely Baltimore scoring drives. The other Packer touchdown came when Herb Adderley gobbled up a Johnny Unitas pass and rambled 44 yards to the end zone. The Packers lost the ball three times on fumbles themselves, but only one bobble proved costly. A fourth period fumble by Tom Moore gave the Colts the ball on the Packers' 24-yard line and Baltimore eventually scored on a five-yard toss from Unitas to Ray Berry. The Packers played without Jim Taylor, who is out of action with an ankle injury. Paul Hornung and Bart Starr were decommissioned by Colts' defenders. Hornung reinjured a nerve in his neck and Starr hurt his leg. Zeke Bratkowski took over at quarterback after Starr's injury in the third period. The 33-year old former Georgia star fired a 37-yard strike to veteran end Max McGee for the decisive touchdown with 2:48 left to play. McGee was filling for Boyd Dowler, who sprained his ankle. But the Colts weren't finished fighting or fumbling. Unitas passed to John Mackey for 19 yards, to Tony Lorick for seven, to Berry for 13 and to Tom Matte for 15. The last throw ended in disaster when Matte fumbled and Adderley recovered on Green Bay's 24. The Packers ran out the clock. The Colts has the edge statistically, 309 to the Packers' 184.

(GREEN BAY) - In the first game in Green Bay to draw more than 50,000 fans, the winless Chicago Bears may have found what the Green Bay Packers have been looking for since the start of their season - a running game that goes. The Packers, 23-14 victors over the Bears followed their opportunistic defense to victory for the third straight week. But their ground game, which netted only 78 yards, was plainly in need for nourishment. So was the Bears before rookie Gale Sayers and second-year man Andy Livingston, teamed to give Chicago a second-half boost. The efforts of Sayers and Livingston came too late for the Bears to overcome a 20-0 halftime deficit, but they did take some of the sting out of the defeat. Sayers scored twice, one on a 65-yard pass play, while picking up 80 yards in 17 carries. Livingston, who signed as a free agent after attending Phoenix Junior College, gained 70 yards in 10 carries. The success of the two young runners opened up the airwaves for Rudy Bukich, who took over at quarterback in George Halas' revamped second-half backfield. Bukich proceeded to complete 13 of 20 passes for 195 yards as the Bears, outgained 186 to 104 in the first half, rolled up 309 yards in the second half to take total offense honors, 413 to 299. Only a Green Bay defense that was stingy inside its own 10 and a rules infraction that nullified a Bukich to Johnny Morris touchdown pass kept the Bears from an upset. Bart Starr picked up a bit of the slack with his passing as he completed 11 of 20 throws for 263 yards.

(GREEN BAY) - Don Chandler booted two field goals, set up one touchdown and got off a 90-yard punt —the longest in modern history - as the Green Bay Packers smothered the San Francisco 49ers 27-10. The 31-year-old kicking specialist stole honors from the Packers' defense which put the damper on what had been the league's most potent offense over the first three weeks of the season. Chandler, a 10-year veteran acquired from the New York Giants, booted field goals from 18 and 24 yards and paved the way for the Packers' first touchdown with a 27-yard dash from punt formation on a fourth and nine situation in the first period. Chandler, who drove his kickoffs consistently through the end zone during the game, capped his great day with his long punt which soared from end zone to end zone in the final period, breaking the back of the 49ers'. Bart Starr was intercepted for the first time in 294 attempts.

(DETROIT) - Bart Starr threw three third quarter touchdowns, two of them for more than 60 yards, to lead the unbeaten Packers to a 31-21 victory over the Detroit Lions. Starr, taking charge after the Lions had taken a 21-3 halftime edge, threw a 62-yard pass to Bob Long, a 31-yarder to Tom Moore and a 77-yarder to Carroll Dale. The Packers, aided by two 15-yard personal foul penalties against the Lions, went 75 yards for a clinching touchdown late in the game with Starr going the final four yards. Green Bay's only points in the first half came on a 49-yard field goal by Don Chandler early in the first quarter. The Lions bounced back to score two touchdowns in the quarter, one on a 14-yard pass from Milt Plum to Ron Kramer and another on Wayne Rasmussen's 36-yard pass interception return. Plum and Terry Barr combined on a 55-yard pass play early in the second quarter for what proved to be the Lions last scoring effort of the game.

(MILWAUKEE) - The unbeaten Packers, held to less than 100 yards in total offense against a crack Dallas defense, turned two third period fumbles deep in Cowboy territory into 10 points. With the score tied 3-3 late in the third period Fuzzy Thurston led a charge at Mel Renfro after he fielded a Don Chandler punt. Renfro, who apparently first collided with his own blockers, fumbled and Junior Coffey recovered for the Packers on the Dallas 22. Chandler then booted his second field goal from 22 yards out to give the Packers the lead. Less than three minutes later, Ron Kostelnik and Henry Jordan jarred Don Perkins, causing another fumble that Willie Davis recovered on the Dallas seven. Jim Taylor followed the blocking of Jerry Kramer on a power sweep on the next play for the only touchdown of the game. The Cowboys, completely frustrating the passing of Bart Starr with a relentless rush and a tight secondary, had held the Packers to a minus-seven yards for the second half until Green Bay mounted its only sustained drive as it ran out the clock. Green Bay won despite ringing up only 63 yards on 52 plays (1.2 yards per play), the worst offensive performance in a Packer win ever. The defense sacked Craig Morton nine times, while converting five Dallas turnovers into 13 points. The two teams combined for minus-11 yards passing.

(CHICAGO) - The perfect record of the Packers was smashed by the inspired Bears, whose brilliant Gale Sayers streaked 62 yards with a punt return for the game's decisive play. The Packer downfall after six straight victories also stemmed from three Bear thefts of Bart Starr passes, who had only two intercepted previously. Two interceptions led to the second and third Bear touchdowns which put the Packers behind 17-7 in the second quarter. Sayers, one of four different Chicago players scoring touchdowns, sewed up the fourth straight Bear victory after three defeats with his 62-yard punt return early in the third period. The rookie from Kansas raced to the Packer 15 after some tremendous running, and three plays later Jon Arnett slammed across from the two-yard line. That put the Bears ahead 24-10 and left the Packers easy prey for a fourth quarter touchdown on Ron Bull's five-yard end run which capped a 62-yard Chicago drive in 10 plays. Green Bay's only touchdown against the fierce Bear defense came in the first quarter for a 7-0 Packer lead. Jim Taylor capped a 70-yard Packer march, including Starr's 33-yard run to the Bear 14, with a one-yard scoring smash. During this four-week stretch (October 24-November 14), Green Bay would be sacked 25 times, fail to throw a touchdown pass, and fail to complete a pass longer than 25 yards, yet win two of the four contests.

(GREEN BAY) - Perfect in their first six outings and averaging almost 30 points a game in their first five, the Packers offense suddenly and without apparent reason, fell apart three weeks ago and Coach Vince Lombardi and his staff haven't been able to restore it. Green Bay has scored only three touchdowns in its last three games. Twice the Packers have been held to minus passing yardage and twice they have been unable to penetrate 100 yards total offense. The Packers fearsome rushers, Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung, have barely managed to total enough yards in eight games to represent one good day's work by Cleveland's Jim Brown. Detroit knocked Green Bay out of first place in the Western Conference, 12-7, and limited the Packers to minus-2 yards passing and 70 yards rushing. Lombardi benched Hornung in favor of Elijah Pitts, who played most of the game at halfback. Pitts gained 15 yards in five carries and Hornung gained only seven yards in four tries. Green Bay was sacked a record eleven times.

(MILWAUKEE) - Green Bay was still alive in the National Football League title chase thanks to a fumble-forcing defense that's made the Packers most dangerous when the other team has the ball. The second-place Packers were their futile selves on offense again as they beat the Los Angeles Rams 6-3 to remain one game behind the Baltimore Colts in the Western Conference race. But the defense made the Rams' attack just as impotent, forcing three fumbles and an interception while seldom giving the Rams good field position. The final fumble was the only one the Packers capitalized on. Ron Kostelnik forced the break by smacking Ram quarterback Bill Munson as he faded to pass from his own 35 with less than three minutes to play. Lionel Aldridge, a bear on defense all day, captured the ball at the 20. Jim Taylor, who netted 68 yards to take game rushing honors, teamed with Paul Hornung, a late entry in the game, to bring the ball to the shadow of the goal line in five plays. With a fourth down, and less than six inches for a touchdown, Don Chandler came on to boot a seven yard field goal with 37 seconds left. The score was the first for Green Bay since the opening period when Chandler was true with a 22-yard effort to tie the score. In between, the former New York Giant had missed on tries of 46 and 45 yards. The only Ram score came in the first few minutes when Bruce Gossett hit on a 35-yard field goal. A Tom Moore fumble on the third play from scrimmage set up the kick. Chuck Lamson recovered for the Rams on the Packers' 23.

(MINNESOTA) - The Packers continued to suffer from offensive sluggishness, but their defense destroyed the Vikings in a last-period uprising. A 47-yard touchdown pass in the opening seconds of the final quarter, Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler, gave Green Bay a 17-14 edge. Then Ray Nitschke's recovery of Bill Brown's fumble set up a Packer touchdown, Doug Hart scored another on a 20-yard run with another Brown fumble, Herb Adderley intercepted a pass, and Lionel Aldridge fell on a Viking fumble that led to the game's final score.

(LOS ANGELES) - Roman Gabriel, Los Angeles' forgotten quarterback, led the Rams out of an eight-game losng streak and jolted the Green Bay Packers title hopes with a 21-10 win. The big fellow, reappearing as a starter to replace the injured Bill Munson, guided the Rams to their first victory since September 15 against the Chicago Bears. The defeat left the Packers with an 8-3 record and a game-and-ahalf behind the Baltimore Colts. Bruce Gossett contributed immensely to the Los Angeles cause with four field goals that ranged 26, 49, 43 and 41 yards. The Packers got off to a 3-point lead on Don Chandler's 14-yard field goal after recovering a Ram fumble on the Ram 17. Los Angeles' tremendous defensive unit then held Green Bay scoreless until late in the fourth period when Zeke Bratkowski, who replaced Bart Starr in the final quarter, connected on an 80-yard touchdown pass to Elijah Pitts. It was the first touchdown Green Bay had scored on the Rams in more than seven quarters. Green Bay did not make a first down rushing until nine minutes into the second half. The Rams added a slight insult to the Packer offense when David Jones and Merlin Olsen smashed through to toss Bratkowski for a safety in the last quarter. Gossett followed with his final field goal from 41 yards out. Gabriel completed 15 of 28 passes, with one interception for 255 yards. Starr was 13 out of 23 for 102 and Bratkowskl six of 12 for 148 and one touchdown. The Packers gained just 22 yards rushing, 21 by Jim Taylor.

Original slides from the playoff game versus the Colts
(GREEN BAY) - Veteran Bill Anderson made a brilliant catch of a Zeke Bratkowski pass and danced down the sidelines for the decisive touchdown Sunday as the Green Bay Packers kept their title hope alive with a 24-19 victory over the slumping Minnesota Vikings. Anderson was traded to the Packers by the Washington Redskins for a future draft pick before the season started. A former Tennessee star, he had retired from football last year, but decided to make a comeback attempt. The Packers' victory kept them on the heels of the Baltimore Colts in the Western Conference race. The Colts, who lost to Chicago, had the Packers by one-half game. Anderson, hit as he grabbed the pass on about the Minnesota 20, fought free from a defender. Then treading near the sidelines he broke for the end zone. The play covered 27 yards and pulled the Packers back from a 19-14 deficit created by Fred Cox's fourth field goal of the game. Don Chandler added a 25-yard field goal to give the Packers some breathing room. The field goal, which was partially blocked and actually brushed the crossbar, was crucial. The Vikings drove back to within field goal range with time running out but had to go for the touchdown.

(BALTIMORE) - Paul Hornung ran for three touchdowns and scored two others on passes from Bart Starr to give Green Bay a 42-27 victory over the Colts and boost the Packers into first place, with a half-game lead over second place Baltimore. Each team has one game to play. Hornung set a club record for touchdowns in the pea-soup fog, scoring on dashes of two, nine and three yards and on 50 and 65-yard pass plays from Starr. Starr also threw a 10-yard touchdown past to Boyd Dowler. Hornung had scored only three touchdowns in 12 previous games this season, the worst of his eight-year pro career. Gary Cuozzo, subbing for injured quarterback Johnny Unitas, guided Baltimore to two last-period touchdown as the Colts valiantly tried to pull out a victory. Hornung ended any Baltimore hope when he took a 65-yard pass from Starr late in the final period. Cuozzo hit Ray Berry with a five-yard touchdown pass and fullback Jerry Hill rammed over from the one in the game's dying minutes. Lenny Moore ran three yards for Baltimore's other touchdown and Lou Michaels added two field goals to complete the Colts' scoring.

(SAN FRANCISCO) - Green Bay ended in a tie with the 49ers, and a tie with Baltimore for the Western Conference title. Green Bay had a seven-point lead — and the division title apparently sewn up — with less than two minutes to go. But the 49ers surged back. John Brodie's third scoring pass of the day, a 27-yarder to Vern Burke, with 1:07 to play, and Tommy Davis' conversion kick tied it at San Francisco. Each team led twice, with the Packers taking a 21-17 advantage in the final period on Jim Taylor's five-yard run and going ahead 24-17 when Don Chandler kicked a 31-yard field goal with 1:48 left. But in 41 seconds the 49ers got even on Kermit Alexander's kickoff return to the 29, a 15-yard penalty, four Brodie passes, and Davis' kick. The 49ers' quarterback star, in his ninth NFL season, clicked on 26 of 34 passes for an amazing 76.5 percent and 295 yards, and wound up with 30 TDs.

(GREEN BAY) - Don Chandler's second field goal provided the winning margin for the Packers at 13:39 of sudden death overtime as Green Bay defeated Baltimore 13-10 in front of 50,484 partisans. His 25-yard kick ended the only overtime playoff game in Packers history, a contest necessitated when the two teams ended the regular season with matching 10-3-1 records. Chandler's first field goal, a 22-yarder with 1:58 remaining in regulation to tie the game, remains controversial to this day, Baltimore loyalists claiming it was wide right. The kick sailed high above the uprights, making it difficult for game officials to determine its accuracy. Uprights were lengthened for the next season in an effort to avoid a recurrence of this situation. The Colts, who were playing without starting quarterback Johnny Unitas (knee) and his backup, Gary Cuozzo (dislocated shoulder), used halfback Tom Matte as a fill-in. He completed only five passes, but did gain 57 yards rushing. Baltimore took a 10-0 halftime lead, scoring first 21 seconds into the game when linebacker Don Shinnick scooped up a Bill Anderson fumble and went 25 yards for a score. Packers quarterback Bart Starr injured his ribs on the play, Green Bay's first from scrimmage, when he tried to get to Shinnick. Zeke Bratkowski replaced Starr for the balance of the afternoon, completing 22 of 39 passes for 248 yards. The Packers moved to within 10-7 in the third quarter when Paul Hornung scored on a one-yard run, setting the stage for Chandler's heroics.

(GREEN BAY) - With the field softened by four-inch snow, the conditions made the Packer backs only run harder as Lambeau Field crowd of 50,777 celebrated team's third title in five years. Jim Taylor (27-96) and Paul Hornung (18-105) amassed 201 yards rushing in rally that overcame Browns' early 9-7 lead. Packers defenders, meanwhile, collared Jim Brown, the NFL's leading rusher during the regular season with 1,544 yards, and held him to but 50 yards. The game was a see-saw battle throughout and saw kickers Don Chandler and Lou Groza boot a total of five field goals. Bart Starr finally settled the issue in the third quarter, escorting the Packers on a 90-yard, 11-play scoring drive climaxed by Hornung's 13-yard sweep of Browns' right perimeter.

Packers RB Paul Hornung was the subject of another book just two years after the last one. This version, a somewhat hard-to-find book titled Football and the Single Man, was published in 1965. While the previous Hornung book was aimed at the wholesome youth market, this one teases with the angle of his swinging lifestyle and being a ladies’ man. It also deals with his suspension for the entire 1963 season due to his gambling activities. (CREDIT: Packerville, USA)
This nifty little book — How to Pass, Kick, Run, Block — was brought to the youth of America by the North American Phillips Corporation, or more specifically, Norelco®. This great instructional guide provided kids with passing advice from Packers’ QB Bart Starr, kicking advice from Cleveland’s Lou Groza, punting tips by the Lions’ Yale Lary, and general info on other positions. Also included is background info on the NFL, rules of the game, the language of football, popular formations and plays, and the 1965 league schedules. It is a quite interesting read, if you can find a copy. (CREDIT: Packerville, USA)
