Packers Destroy Eagles in Philadelphia, 49-0

Nov. 12, 1962 - The unbeaten and untied Green Bay Packers, showing a fine balance of running and passing, crushed the Eagles yesterday, 49-0, in Philadelphia. It was Green Bay’s ninth straight victory of the NFL season. The fullback, Jim Taylor, scored four touchdowns. Bart Starr, the league’s most accurate passer, completed 15 of 20 throws for 274 yards. Taylor, the league’s top runner, paced a ground attack of 294 yards. The Packers rolled to 37 first downs, bettering the league record of 35 in one game set by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1958. In the second period alone, Green Bay ran up 28 points as the sellout crowd of 60,671 booed the Eagles, a team decimated by injuries and grown old suddenly. The Eagles never passed the Green Bay 48-yard line. They gained only 30 yards on the ground and 24 through the air. It was the Eagles’ seventh loss in nine games.
