The NFL title game took place at Philadelphia's Franklin Field in 1960, pitting the Green Bay Packers versus the hometown Eagles. Neither team had been to the championship game in more than a decade. With the Eagles leading 17-13 late in the second half, quarterback Bart Starr moved Green Bay down the field. From the Eagles' 22, Starr threw a short pass to Jim Taylor, who headed toward the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown. But Philly's Chuck Bednarik, the oldest player on the field (35), wrestled Taylor to the ground short of the goal line and held him down as the final seconds ticked off the clock. The victory is the Eagles' most recent league NFL title.
