Before the 1961 NFL Championship
After a few days off, including a weekend in Green Bay for the Packers-Chargers game on Sunday, we’re back with another in our series of photos from the week and days leading up to the 1961 championship game. The caption for this photo read: “Arnold DesJardins stands in the knee-deep hay under the goal posts in the south end zone in early December 1961. The hay was put on the field to preserve it for a month before the NFL championship game, which was played on Dec. 31.
