(MINNESOTA) - Clint Jones smashed one yard for a third quarter touchdown to give the Minnesota Vikings a 10-3 victory over Green Bay, clinching a share of the Central Division title. Jones' score broke a 3-3 tie, the result of second quarter field goals by the Viking's Fred Cox and Green Bay's Dale Livingston. Cox's 15-yard kick, marking the 19th straight game in which he has kicked a field goal, put him in ninth place among National Football League career scorers. Jones' drive was set up by Gary Cuozzo's 37-yard pass to Gene Washington, giving Minnesota a first and goal on the Packers' four. After three running plays moved the ball to the one, Jones fell in for the score. Jim Marshall recovered a Green Bay fumble on the Viking 17 just before the two minute warning to end the Packers' comeback attempt. Cox kicked a 15-yard field goal 3 1/2 minutes into the second quarter, to raise his career scoring mark to 757, passing Jim Brown in the all-time standings. He then added a point after Jones' touchdown to move within two points of eighth-ranked Paul Hornung. Donny Anderson rushed for 93 yards in 19 attempts, but Packers failed to dent endzone.
