(SAN FRANCISCO) - The San Francisco 49ers survived a fumble-filled start and dominated the second half to post a 26-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The victory, before the biggest crowd in 12 years at Kezar Stadium, kept the 49ers in first place in the Western Division. San Francisco struggled to a 10-10 half-time tie despite gaining only 69 yards in the first two periods. Green Bay's scores, a nine-yard field goal by Dale Livingston and a 33-yard touchdown pass from Don Horn to Jack Clancy, came after the 49ers fumbled away Green Bay punts. The 49ers opened the second half with an 80-yard touchdown drive, featuring a 52-yard pass from John Brodie to Jim Thomas, a running back switched to wide receiver, to fill in for injured Gene Washington. Doug Cunningham went six yards for the touchdown that put the 49ers ahead to stay. The Packers' Ken Ellis then fumbled on the kickoff return and Elmer Collet recovered at the 24. Bruce Gossett kicked a field goal to make it 20-10.
