McGee and Thurston Block

In today’s photo, we see long-time Packer receiver Max McGee (#85) and guard Fred “Fuzzy” Thurston (#63) out blocking in front of an unidentified ballcarrier. This action is from a game in Philadelphia’s Franklin Field. We’re almost certain this is the November 11, 1962 contest which saw Green Bay demolish the Eagles 49-0, providing some measure of revenge for the 1960 NFL Championship game loss — Vince Lombardi’s only postseason defeat in his tenure in Titletown.

I believe the Philly defender in the photo is the 1970's CBS NFL today analyst, Irv Cross.
