Green Bay Packers (3-3-1) 28, Dallas Cowboys (6-1) 17
Monday October 28th 1968 (at Dallas)
(DALLAS) - Take it from the unbeaten Cowboys and former Green Bay coach, Vince Lombardi, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the world champions. With Monday night's 28-17 victory over Dallas before a national television audience, the Packers shot into a tie for the Central lead. Bart Starr, who only last week was on the sidelines for most of the game with a pulled bicep muscle, rifled four touchdown passes and completed 17 of 25 tosses for 260 yards. He hit Marv Fleming on scoring tosses of three and 32 yards and tossed for touchdowns 26 yards to Carroll Dale and five yards to Boyd Dowler. Dallas QB Don Meredith, who suffered a broken nose when he was tackled by Willie Davis, threw touchdown passes of 18 yards to Bob Hayes and 27 yards to Craig Baynham. He had three throws intercepted and completed but 13 of 30 for 219 yards.
