Green Bay Packers (10-3) 42, Baltimore Colts (9-3-1) 27
Sunday December 12th 1965 (at Baltimore)
(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.
