Recalling Two Bills/Chargers AFL Title Tilts

September 14, 2018

There are no Super Bowl rematches this weekend, however there is a redux of two “all the way”/pre Supe, AFL title tilts, played by the same two teams in back to back years.

Those teams are the Buffalo Bills and the Chargers, then and for all but three of their 49 seasons, the San Diego Chargers.

Buffalo won both AFL battles vs S.D. defeating the defending champion Chargers in 1964 at Buffalo and winning again at San Diego a year later.

Bills quarterback Jack Kemp, later in life a nominee of the Republican Party as a Vice Presidential candidate, was the game MVP in both Bills’ victories.

 

It was very close to forty years ago that I was cited in a local newspaper as having met Mr. Kemp as he continued his foray into politics.

I repeat what I said then, about his being gracious and classy.

Jack Kemp is pictured above.
