Green Bay Packers (6-5) 20, New York Giants (3-8) 19
Sunday November 30th 1969 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Don Horn fired touchdown passes to Donny Anderson and Carroll Dale to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 20-10 victory over the New York Giants. Horn, who took over the signal calling reigns for the injured Bart Starr, directed the Packers to their sixth victory in 11 outings. New York has lost seven in a row. The Giants scored first when Pete Gogolak booted a 14-yard field goal midway through the initial period. But, Green Bay came right back with a 95-yard march that ended when Horn and Anderson collaborated on a 39-yard touchdown pass. Travis Williams' 57-yard scamper on a punt return put Green Bay in scoring position again, and Horn immediately cashed in the opportunity. The young quarterback, after losing nine yards to a Giants' blitz, fired a pass to Carroll Dale at the five yard line. New York's Carl Lockhart, attempting to intercept, bobbled the ball and Dale pulled it in, side stepped defender Scott Eaton and walked into the end zone. The extra point attempt failed when Horn fumbled the snap from center. With only 55 seconds remaining in the first half, Fran Tarkenton moved the Giants 75 yards in three plays for another TD. The veteran quarterback connected with Aaron Thomas for the final 35 yards, pulling New York to within three points, 13-10, at the half. The final Packer TD came in the third period when Travis Williams broke through the right side of the line, shook off several would be tacklers and streaked 27 yards into the end zone. Bart Starr was lost for the remainder of the season. Booth Lusteg replaced Mike Mercer as the kicker.
