Green Bay Packers (10-3-1) 24, San Francisco 49ers (7-6-1) 24 (Tie)
Sunday December 19th 1965 (at San Francisco)
(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.
