During the Packers' final timeout, Starr suggested to Lombardi that he should just sneak the ball into the end zone instead of handing it off. Lombardi agreed and Starr called '35 wedge,' a running play designed to Chuck Mercer.None of Starr's teammates expected him to keep the ball, but with 13 seconds left he pushed his way into the end zone for the winning touchdown in what remains arguably the most famous game in football history, played at Lambent Field amidst a wind chill of 45-below.Starr's '62 campaign included a career-high 2,438 yards passing and marked the first of four seasons in which he led the league in passing percentage (62.5). The second was in 1966, when he completed 62.2 percent of his passes for 2,257 yards and 14 touchdowns with only 3 interceptions.
