Green Bay Packers (6-0) 13, Dallas Cowboys (2-4) 3
Sunday October 24th 1965 (at Milwaukee)
(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.
