2-B THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS DALLAS RA TES 24-20 EDGE Chiefs24, Oakland 27 Colts Get Nod Over Minnesota For West Title By ,J.U k HAND Associated Press S(>orts Writer NEW YORK (API - If everything goes according to form the Dallas Cowboys will he playing the Baltimore Colts for the National Football League title Dec. 29 and the Kansas City Chiefs will be playing the New York Jets for the American Football League crown. Form has a way of flip-flopping in these playoff games and it could very well do a somersault Saturday at Cleveland or Sunday at Baltimore or Oakland. The NFL weekend program calls for Dallas (12-2) at Cleveland (10-4» for the Eastern Conference championship Saturday and Minnesota (8-6) at Baltimore (13-1) Sunday for the Western Conference title. In the AFL it will be Kansas City (12-2) at Oakland (12 -21, Sunday in a playoff for the Western Division title and the right to play the Jets in New York the following Sunday. After last week's 11-1 record anybody with the smarts would call- it quits. But here 's a last whirl at the picking. ~ •:• <NFI« Dallas 24. Cleveland 20 (Saturday)—The Cowboys beat the Browns in September 28-7 when Frank Ryari was pitching for Cleveland arid Dan Reeves still was healthy- and < running for Dallas. When.they met last year for the Eastern title in Dallas, the Cowboys really poured it on, 52-14 when Bob Hayes running wild on punt returns.

If Jethro Pugh is sub par I mm last Sunday's knee injury in New York, watch the Browns send Leroy Kelly into Dallas' left side. Both were dull last week, the Cowboys in a 28-10 win over New York, the Browns in a 2716 defeat by St. Louis. Baltimore 20. Minnesota 16 (Sunday i--Colts held off the flu-stricken Vikings 21-9 on Nov. 2-1 after opening up 21-3 halftime lead. The Vikes really took out afl- or Ear) Morrall in the second half, intercepting two and forcing a fumble but Baltimore dut; in and stopped Bill Brown twice on the one-yard line in a tense goal line stand. Minnesota offense can't compare with Colts, especially in air, where erratic Joe Kapp will oppose Morrall. i Baltimore probably will try ; for the bomb early because inju- j ry to Terry Cole and doubtful i condition of Jerry Hill hurts • their ground game. Return of : Dave Osborn in last two games after knee surgery gives Vikings big plus. This can be a real war, perhaps the best game of the season. AFL, Kansas- City 24, Oakland . 21 (Sunday)—The past performance book is confusing. The: Chiefs went to the old tight-T and whipped the Raiders 24-10 on Oct. 20 and two weeks later were bombed by Daryle Lamonica 38-21. In a pre-season game Kansas City won 31-21. Hank Strain's club closed strong, and Oakland has won last eight. . Against common foes in last two weeks, Chiefs bombed San Diego, 40-3, Raiders squeaked home 34-27. Chiefs clubbed Denver 30-7, Raiders rallied for 3327 edge. Oakland has better running but Lamonica passed them Silly Nov. 3. No love lost on either side in this one.

Joining Faulkner were Bob Dickson, the chief offensive coach, and Bob Shaw, coach of the receivers. A fourth assistant, Walt Yowarsky, previously told Fears and Schwenk that he would quit at the end of the season. It means Fears is losing four of his seven assistants from a staff which won four games this season, equalling the best second-year performance for any NFL expansion team. Faulkner sounded extremely distressed when he announced Hie decision in a telephone call to The Associated Press. He said he didn't want to elaborate but might have something more to say later.
