Baltimore Colts (5-3) 14, Green Bay Packers (5-3) 6
Sunday November 9th 1969 (at Baltimore)
(BALTIMORE) - Johnny Unitas passed for two touchdowns while Tom Maxwell and Bubba Smith blocked field goals as the Colts defeated the Green Bay Packers, 14-6. With the Colts leading 7-6 in the second quarter, the Packers attempted a field goal from the Baltimore 45 yard line. Maxwell, a rookie cornerback, blocked Mike Mercer's kick and the Colts recovered the ball on the Green Bay 49. The Colts then drove to the Green Bay three yard stripe in 11 plays and Unitas followed with a touchdown pass to Ray Perkins. The Colts' first touchdown, a 51-yard pass from Unitas to Tom Mitchell, came with 4:49 left in the first quarter. Mitchell, subbing for the injured John Mackey, then wrenched his left knee on the Colts' kickoff following the touchdown and had to leave the game. The Colts lost another receiver, Jimmy Orr, because of a muscle pull, also in the second quarter. Mercer kicked two field goals in the first quarter to account for all the Packers' scoring. Following Herb Adderly's interception of a Unitas pass at the Green Bay 35, the Packers moved to the six where Mercer booted a 14 yard field goal. Green Bay was helped by a roughing the kicker penalty when the Packers punted from their 41 which allowed them to keep the ball during their drive. Mercer's other field goal, a 47-yarder, came after the Packers had moved to the Colts' 40 following Baltimore's first touchdown. Neither team scored in the second half as the Colts were hampered by a lack of healthy receivers and the Packers' substitute quarterback Don Horn was unable to move the ball. Horn was playing for Bart Starr who was suffering from a sore arm.
