(MILWAUKEE) - The proud Green Bay Packer defense humiliated the great Johnny Unitas and carried the Packers to a 24-3 victory over the Baltimore Colts. Lee Roy Caffey and Bob Jeter picked off two Unitas passes in less than two minutes and turned them into touchdowns as the Packers eliminated any doubts about their claim to the NFL crown. The two sudden scores broke the backs of the Colts' resistance. The Packers offense, which had slumbered through most of the first half, caught fire and dominated play the rest of the game. Bart Starr combined with Boyd Dowler and Paul Hornung to spark a 79-yard third period drive that ended with Starr bolting over for a touchdown from the eight. Don Chandler, whose field goal had beaten Baltimore 13-10 in last December's dramatic playoff for the Western Conference crown, kicked another from the 15 as the Packers took a 24-3 lead with only a quarter to play. But the defense, as it had through the Packers 1965 season, was the key to the victory, Green Bay's fourth straight over the Colts. Caffey's 52-yard romp with a pass stolen from the peerless Colts' quarterback gave the Packers a 7-3 lead late in the second period. Four plays later Jeter got into the act by grabbing another Unitas pass at the Baltimore 46 and racing untouched into the end zone. Unitas was missing from the Colts' lineup last season when the Packers and Colts met in the playoff game. But he seemed completely recovered from knee surgery as he led the Colts to early game mastery over the slight underdog Packers.
