NFL Postseason Notes: Chiefs Nee Texans/Titans Nee Oilers

January 3, 2018

There is definite postseason history involving the two franchises meeting in the wild card round opener this Saturday.

The game matches the Kansas City Chiefs, long ago the Dallas Texans, vs the Tennessee Titans nee Houston Oilers.

In their third and last season as the AFL Dallas Texans, (1962) the Chiefs rode Tommy Brooker’s field goal in the second overtime period, to a (20-17) victory at Houston, vs the Oilers.

Houston, which until this past baseball season’s stirring Astros’ crown, had only the two Houston Rockets’ titles in an existing major North American sports league, had won the first two AFL crowns with George Blanda, as their quarterback.

Tomorrow as our week of NFL notes continues, more on Texans/Chiefs vs Oilers/Titans, as well as more notes on Houston sports history.
