Minnesota Vikings (1-1) 26, Green Bay Packers (1-1) 13
Sunday September 22nd 1968 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Give the Vikings two inches and they'll take 74 yards—and the Packers. The Packers got a taste of such ingratitude when the improving Vikings used those inches to spring the biggest upset of the young season by upending the world champions 26-13. The Vikings decided they'd like those two inches in the third quarter after Green Bay had scored and cut Minnesota's lead to 16-6. The Packers, their momentum growing, had Minnesota stopped, fourth down and two inches needed for a first down on the Vikings' 26 yard line. But Coach Bud Grant decided to try for it and quarterback Joe Kapp crept two inches for a first down, and then drove Minnesota 74 yards for a back-breaking touchdown. Minnesota, which has beaten the Packers four of their last nine meetings, built a 16-0 lead by halftime on a safety and Bill Brown's two scoring runs, but the issue still was in doubt when Kapp inched his way to the vital first down.
