Friday Night Bonus

As a bonus on this eve of the Packers’ football season, we thought we would share a great find on Hulu. It is the N.F.L. “Game of the Week” from Week 5 of the 1966 season. Below are some screen captures of the production, and the entire thing can be watched above. Enjoy this look back as we await the 2011 exhibition season.


This game, while fun to watch from a historical standpoint, resulted in a tough loss for the Packers. Ironically, the game could’ve been won if Don Chandler, who passed away this week, had made a short field goal late in the game.
