Green Bay Packers (10-3-1) 13, Baltimore Colts (10-3-1) (OT)
WESTERN CONFERENCE PLAYOFF - Sunday December 26th 1965 (at Green Bay)
Don Chandler's first field goal, a game-tying 22-yarder with 1:58 remaining in regulation, remains controversial to this day. Baltimore fans claimed it sailed wide right. The kick, which flew high above the upright, actually triggered the league to extend the goal posts' height for the following season. Chandler’s game-winning field goal (seen above), at 13:39 of sudden death, ended the Packers' first-ever overtime game, and their only such playoff contest until 2003. His 25-yard kick sent Green Bay to the N.F.L. championship. Below is the coverage of the game from Sports Illustrated. (Credit - Packerville, USA)
(GREEN BAY) - Don Chandler's second field goal provided the winning margin for the Packers at 13:39 of sudden death overtime as Green Bay defeated Baltimore 13-10 in front of 50,484 partisans. His 25-yard kick ended the only overtime playoff game in Packers history, a contest necessitated when the two teams ended the regular season with matching 10-3-1 records. Chandler's first field goal, a 22-yarder with 1:58 remaining in regulation to tie the game, remains controversial to this day, Baltimore loyalists claiming it was wide right. The kick sailed high above the uprights, making it difficult for game officials to determine its accuracy. Uprights were lengthened for the next season in an effort to avoid a recurrence of this situation. The Colts, who were playing without starting quarterback Johnny Unitas (knee) and his backup, Gary Cuozzo (dislocated shoulder), used halfback Tom Matte as a fill-in. He completed only five passes, but did gain 57 yards rushing. Baltimore took a 10-0 halftime lead, scoring first 21 seconds into the game when linebacker Don Shinnick scooped up a Bill Anderson fumble and went 25 yards for a score. Packers quarterback Bart Starr injured his ribs on the play, Green Bay's first from scrimmage, when he tried to get to Shinnick. Zeke Bratkowski replaced Starr for the balance of the afternoon, completing 22 of 39 passes for 248 yards. The Packers moved to within 10-7 in the third quarter when Paul Hornung scored on a one-yard run, setting the stage for Chandler's heroics.
