December 11, 1932
Wrigley Field, Chicago
Chicago Bears (9) over Green Bay Packers (0)
Heavy snow fell during the game, but the players and 5,000 fans were
said to be "impervious to the cold and snow". There was no scoring
until the fourth quarter when Tiny Engebretsen kicked a field goal
for the Bears from the 14. Then the Bears'
broke open the game
with a 56 yard scoring run, though Red Grange missed the point-after.
The cold, wet conditons led to several fumbles, two of which
were costly for the Packers.
The Engebretsen field goal was set up by an Arnie Herber fumble
at the Packer 24, and in the second quarter, hopes for a Packer
touchdown were dashed by an Arnie Herber fumble at the Bears' one
The game ended the season with the Bears tied for first with the
Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans.
