Minnesota Vikings (2-1) 19, Green Bay Packers (2-1) 7
Sunday October 5th 1969 (at Minnesota)
(MINNESOTA) - A punishing defense and capitalizing on the opposition's mistakes - once the hallmarks of the Green Bay dynasty - were the tools the Minnesota Vikings used to defeat the Packers, 19-7. The Vikings defense stopped the Packer running game and threw Bart Starr to the ground eight times for losses of 63 yards. Fred Cox kicked four field goals for Minnesota, ranging from 26 to 41 yards. He also kicked the extra point in the second period, after halfback Dave Osborn ran three yards for the Vikings' only touchdown. The Packers scored their only touchdown and conversion with only five seconds to play in the game — thus depriving Minnesota of its first shutout in 115 National Football League games. The game was played at the University of Minnesota due to a Twins playoff.
