Turnovers Lead Packers over Cowboys for NFL Title

1966 AFL/NFL Playoff Simulation



Bart Starr was clutch when he needed to be and the opportunistic Packers defense did the rest.

The Packers intercepted four passes from Don Meredith, three of which were returned for touchdowns. The fourth interception occurred as Meredith was trying to hit Bob Hayes in the endzone.

Despite the turnovers, the Cowboys twice erased a 21 point deficit to get within a score while driving. It would not be enough as they would fall to the Packers in the NFL title game.

The Packers will now face the Chiefs in Super Bowl I
