When was Dick Butkus's final game in 1973 and who was it against?
It was the Monday Night game against the Kansas City Chiefs in KC on November 12, 1973. Butkus was hobbling around the field and Don Meredith made a comment about how Butkus was so courageous for playing but was a shell of himself due to the knee injuries and maybe it was time for him to hang em up. That MNF game was Butkus' last and he was replaced by Don Rives for the rest of the season.
