1960 Green Bay Packers Highlights
and
1960 Philadelphia Eagles Highlights

The 1960 NFL Title Game, the 1960 Green Bay Packers Highlights and the 1960 Philadelphia Eagles Highlights are all available for the first time on one 71-minute DVD! All three original films have now been restored by Rare Sportsfilms and the Championship Game is in beautiful COLOR! The Packer highlight film, narrated by Chris Schenkel and presented by Miller Brewing, and the Eagles film, narrated by Jim Leaming and presented by Ballentine Beer, each show six outstanding games (see below) from the regular season. You’ll enjoy a special introduction to the championship game by the new NFL commissioner, young 33-year-old Pete Rozelle!

The young Packers under coach Vince Lombardi won a tough conference fight, beating out the Champion Colts, Lions and 49’ers and were victorious in their last three games to wrap up their first Western crown since 1944. Paul Hornung, Green Bay’s great running and kicking star, set a new NFL scoring mark of 176 points! Lamar McHan started at quarterback early in the fall, but by late in the year young Bart Starr had established himself as the Packers’ top signal caller.

The Eagles were a veteran club in 1960 and were beaten in their opener at home to start the season, however they only lost one more game all year on their way to the title. Quarterback Norm Van Brocklin’s passing led the team, but reserve depth was the key to their season. When Clarence Peaks was sidelined, rookie Ted Dean filled in superbly. When injuries depleted the linebacking corps, center Chuck Bednarik moved over to defense. The 35-year-old Bednarik was the story of the year, often starring at center and linebacker in the same game!

Early in the first quarter of the title game, the Packers recover a fumble on the Eagle 22-yd line. After three downs gain little, Hornung’s FG puts Green Bay in the lead 3-0. At halftime, the score is Eagles 10, Packers 6 and neither team scores in the third quarter. Early in the 4th quarter, a Starr to Max McGee TD pass caps an 80-yd drive to put the Packers on top, 13-10. On the kickoff following the TD, Ted Dean brings the Eagles back by returning the ball to the Green Bay 39-yd line. Seven plays later, Dean scores from the five to put the Eagles ahead. The Packers drive down field in the waning minutes, but time runs out with the ball on the Eagle 9-yard line and the score 17-13 Eagles. Norm Van Brocklin, playing his final game, is named MVP.

On this new DVD, Eagle fans will enjoy seeing all the players from the fabulous 1960 team and Packer fans will enjoy watching players from the beginnings of the great Lombardi dynasty.
