FROM start to finish the Packers were the NFL's elite team, with a potent offense and a powerful defense that no other squad could match.
(1) Green Bay halfback Paul Hornung opened the season strong, rushing for three touchdowns, kicking two field goals (including a season-best 45-yarder) and adding four extra points. Final score: Packers 34 (Hornung 28), Vikings 7.
(2) Hornung (5) led the team to victory again in Week 2, adding 11 points to his season total, while Green Bay's unyielding D shut out the Cardinals 17--0 in Milwaukee.
(3) The Colts racked up 382 total yards against the Packers, but running back Lenny Moore couldn't escape defensive backs Hank Gremminger (46) and Willie Wood (24), as Green Bay won 17--13 to move to 10--0.
(4) Detroit took a 26--0 lead after three quarters on Thanksgiving, and Bart Starr (15) couldn't right the ship in the fourth, although he did drive the team for a pair of late TDs—a silver lining in the Packers' lone loss of '62.
