Don Chandler's 1965 field goal
The Packers and Colts were tied for the lead of Western Conference at the end of the 1965. There was no tie-breaking system in those days, so the Colts and Packers slugged it out at Lambeau in a tie breaker. Colts QB's John Unitas and Gary Quozzo were injured. The Colts were forced to start halfback Tom Matte as their QB. Bart Starr was injured and relieved by Zeke Bratkowski. The game came down to a highly disputed 25 yard field goal by Don Chandler in overtime, giving the crown to the Packers.

The disputed field goal was the one that tied the game in regulation, late in the fourth quarter.
