Dallas Cowboys 21, Green Bay Packers (2-1) 12
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 28th 1965 (at Dallas)
(DALLAS) - The Dallas Cowboys, shielding goal line with an ironclad defense, stunned the previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers Saturday night in an exhibition before a record 67,954 fans. The Cowboys roared from behind with two touchdowns in the third quarter, the second set up by a pass interception by linebacker Chuck Howley at the Packer 4-yard line. Don Perkins crashed into the end zone on the next play for a 14-9 Cowboy lead and Dallas added another touchdown in the final minute of the game. The Packers threatened continually in the first half, but their drives stalled time after time in the face of the crushing Dallas defense that kept its goal-line uncrossed. Don Chandler kicked two field goals in the first half for Green Bay after Paul Hornung's early three-pointer. Chandler added another field goal in the fourth quarter. The crowd was the largest ever to watch a Cowboys home game. It was Dallas' first victory ever over the Packers after five years in the NFL.
