Green Bay Packers (1-0) 44, New York Giants (0-1) 7
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 14th 1965 (at Green Bay)
(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.
