What a difference a month can make.
On Nov. 19, the Packers traveled to the Polo Grounds to play the Giants. With two weeks remaining, both appeared on course to meet in the championship game.
But on this particular day, Green Bay looked anything but a champion. Packers quarterbacks Irv Comp, Joe Laws, Roy McKay and Paul Duhart threw five interceptions. The Giants, meanwhile, piled up 221 yards rushing and returned one interception for a TD.
Three weeks later, the teams met again. This time the NFL championship was on the line. And this time, the Packers put on a championship performance.
The Packers held the Giants to 85 yards rushing and intercepted four passes. Offensively, Ted Fritsch’s two second-quarter touchdowns were enough as the Packers won 14-7 – their sixth championship.
“For the first time this year, the ball club operated at full efficiency,” Coach Curly Lambeau said. “If a team ever deserved to win a championship, this team did.”
