September 18, 1938 – Possibly the lowest scoring victory in NFL history was accomplished. We all know it’s a treat when the Bears and the Packers meet on the gridiron and it has been that way for a long long time. Back on 1938 the match-up made history when the Chicago Bears defeated the Green Bay Packers in 2-0 defense dominated struggle.
The Post Crescent newspaper of Appleton, Wisconsin tells us that the game was played in a constant and driving rain, so field conditions were sloppy and the ball was slick. Packers star Arnie Herber received a couple of bad snaps in punting situations, and one of these trickled over the end line for the only points of the contest… a Bears safety.
Combine that with a total of three missed field goal attempts between the clubs and the 2-0 score was reached despite all of the future Hall of Fame players on the field.
