Sunday December 21st 1969 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Don Horn passed for a team record 410 yards and tied another club mark with five touchdown passes, leading the Green Bay Packers to a 45-28 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Horn completed 22 of 31 passes, including eight in a row at one point, as the Packers charged from a 14-7 deficit with a 24-point explosion in the second quarter to take a 31-14 halftime lead. The Cards never got closer than 10 points behind thereafter as Horn passed for touchdowns of 7 and 43 yards to Boyd Dowler, 34 and 10 yards to Carroll Dale and 12 to Travis Williams. A five-yard touchdown run by Dave Hampton and a 28-yard field goal by Boot Lusteg rounded out the Green Bay scoring. St. Louis scored two touchdowns in the first quarter on an 18-yard pass from Charley Johnson to John Gilliam and an 88-yard runback of a fumble recovery by Larry Wilson. The Cardinals threatened to come back into the game in the third quarter as Gilliam returned the second half kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and seconds later Roger Wehrli intercepted a Horn pass and returned it to the Green Bay 23.
