Sunday November 2nd 1969 (at Pittsburgh)
(PITTSBURGH) - Bart Starr, who came off the bench in the third period, hurled a 43-yard touchdown pass to Carroll Dale with 4:46 left to give the Green Bay Packers a 38-34 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Starr's pass snapped the Steelers' hopes for their first victory after five defeats. Gene Mingo recovered his own short kickoff and then booted a 32-yard field goal that gave Pittsburgh a 34-31 lead with 5:02 gone in the final quarter. Dick Shiner, who entered the game early in the fourth period to replace Terry Hanratty who was injured, threw a 53-yard pass to Roy Jefferson, the NFL's leading pass receiver, to bring the Steelers even at 31-31. Seconds earlier, Travis Williams put Green Bay ahead 31-24 when he punched over from the one-yard line. Williams earlier electrified the crowd of 46,403 when he scored on an 83-yard punt return and a 96-yard kickoff return.
