(MILWAUKEE) - Dave Hampton spurted 101 yards for a fourth-period touchdown with a kickoff return to give the Green Bay Packers a 13-10 victory over the Vikings. It was the first loss of the season for Minnesota, defending NFL champions, and the first time the Packers have defeated the Vikings in Wisconsin since 1965. Until Hampton's electrifying burst up the middle, the scoring had been relegated to two field goals by the Packers' Dale Livingston and a three-pointer by Minnesota's Fred Cox. It was right after Cox booted his 24-yard field goal to extend his NFL record to 22 consecutive games, that Hampton, taking the kickoff one-yard deep in his own end zone, followed his blockers to the 20 where he shook off a tackle by Charlie West. Hampton, a sophomore speedster from Wyoming, broke free around the 30 and outsprinted everyone to the goal. Minnesota marched to its touchdown as the game drew to a close.Gary Cuozzo consistently found his receivers wide open as the Packers appeared to be playing a prevent defense, allowing the short pass, but not the bomb.
