Green Bay Packers (9-2) 28, Minnesota Vikings (3-7-1) 16
Sunday November 27th 1966 (at Green Bay)
(MINNESOTA) - Herb Adderley partially blocked a punt to set up a Green Bay touchdown and intercepted a Fran Tarkenton pass to crush Minnesota's bid for a winning touchdown in the final two minutes as the Packers defeated the Vikings 28-16. The victory, avenging a 20-17 upset loss to the Vikings three weeks ago, lifted the Packers into a two-game lead in the Western Conference. The Vikings, battling back from a 21-3 halftime deficit, trimmed Green Bay's lead to 21-16 on Tarkenton's 38-yard scoring pass to Dave Osborn with 9 1/2 minutes left. With 3 1/2 minutes remaining, the Vikings tried a dipsy-doodle pass play with Tarkenton first pitching out to Phil King, who lateraled the ball back to Tarkenton. Adderley intercepted Tarkenton's pass. The Packers scored a few plays later to ice the victory, with rookie Jim Grabowski circling left end for 36 yards and the touchdown. The Vikings had pecked away at the Green Bay lead with two field goals by Fred Cox from 30 and 22 yards in the third period. Tarkenton finally got Minnesota's offense clicking halfway through the final quarter. He hit Jim Phillips on a 40-yard pass, then connected with Osborn for the touchdown, climaxing a 96-yard scoring march in five plays.
