The Green Bay Packers Bart Starr’s Awesome Post Season Record

Bart Starr had a great career as the leader of the Green Bay Packers during the late 1950’s and then through the 1960’s. He was a main cog in the Packers machine that rolled through opponents on the way to capturing multiple NFL championships. One of the many amazing things about Bart Starr, and the Packers team as a whole, during that era is his post season win-loss record.

The Packers played for the NFL Championship in 1960 against the Philadelphia Eagles and lost 17-13. This would be Starr’s only post season loss of his career.

In 1961, Bart Starr threw three touchdown passes in a 37-0 victory over the New York Giants in the NFL Championship Game.

In 1966, the Packers were once again victorious in the NFL Championship Game, this time beating the Cleveland Browns 23-12.

Starr had his best post season game ever on New Year’s Day in 1967 when he threw four touchdown passes in a 34-27 win over the Dallas Cowboys to earn a berth in the first Super Bowl. They then went on to defeat the AFL‘s Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 35-10.

In 1967, the Packers beat both the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys on their way to the Super Bowl. This time n the big game the Packers would defeat the Oakland Raiders by the score of 33-14 behind a strong game by quarterback Bart Starr.

This gave Starr a win-loss record of 7-1 in the post season as a starting quarterback, pretty amazing.
