NFL Notes

September 19, 2018

This season as was the case in 1973, the Minnesota Vikings opened their season with a (24-16) victory.

In 1973 the win was against the Oakland Raiders while this year Minne (24-16)’d, another Bay area team, the S.F. 49ers.

In that 1973 season, a great Miami Dolphins team also opened its season with an 8 point win vs the 49ers, that one (21-13). I still recall and until recently had Brad Weiner’s letter to me at college, “talking” about “his” Dolphins.

This season Miami won its first game, a greatly interrupted marathon with Sam Rosen there, by 7 points, before winning its second straight, that one by 8 points.

Meanwhile Minnesota trailed by 8 in the waning seconds but tied Green Bay, the eventual outcome after a 10 minute overtime and field goal attempts gone awry.

In ’73, the Dolphins and Vikings met in the Supe, Miami easing to a (24-7) victory.
