Green Bay Packers (4-0) 27, San Francisco 49ers (2-2) 10
Sunday October 10th 1965 (at Green Bay)
(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.
