Wally Lemm's hopes rest in history repeating itself. Last season the Oilers became the first AFL club to rise from last place to a division title in one season. The Oilers accomplished this by winning five of their last six games, while the Jets were dropping three of their final four contests. Houston won the title by a game over New York and on such memories are dreams built. The Oilers enter this game seven-point underdogs and trail the Jets by 2 1-2 games. A Houston loss would virtually push New York into the championship. The Jets edged Houston 2014 in an earlier meeting this year, a game in which Joe Namath tailed to throw a scoring pass. Namath, in fact, hasn't passed (or a touchdown in his last five games. New York was saved from a second ignominious setback by Buffalo last Sunday when Jim Turner kicked a record tying six field goals and comeiback Johnny Sample ran back a Kay Stephenson interception .'!6 yards for New York's only touchdown in a 25-21 victory. Houston moved past Boston into second place by downing Cincinnati 27-17. Don Trull, who almost beat New York In their last meeting, has been spectacu lar since taking over for the Oilers at quarterback. He amassed 468 yards on 28 of 50 pass completions and connected tor six touchdowns. In other AFL action today, Oakland is a 13-point pick over Denver, Kansas City is 14 over Cincinnati, San Diego 1 over Boston and Miami one over Buffalo. Oakland, defending AFL champ, stopped Kansas City last Sunday to narrow the Chiefs' lead to a half-game. The Raiders lost Daryle Lamonlca for the Bronco game when the day's opening lineup, which should attract a record breaking crowd.

Carlln, chairman of the U.S. Olympic rowing committee who traveled to the Olympic Games In Mexico City last month on a stretcher, died Frl-dav after a long illness. He was 72. JOHNNY SAMPLE ...Scored Only TD Oakland quarterback suffered a knee injury after passing for 352 yards, the 41-year-old Oeorge Blanda will crank up his passing arm as Lamonica's stand-in. Denver has won four of its last five games, but doesn't have the defense to stop the running of Hewritt Dixon and Pete Banaszak. Kansas City also takes the field without its No. 1 quarterback. Len Dawson bruised a thigh against a goal post in the Oakland game and Jacky Lee replaces him for the Cincinnati contest. Dawson was the league's second leading passer and the top percentage man with 81 of 138 completions for a 58.7 mark. Cincinnati's expansion team has lost its last six games. Quarterback John Hudl leads the league in passing yardage with 2,144 and the total should increase immensely against Boston, especially with receivers Lance Alworth and Gary Garrison, ranked second and fourth in- pass-catching. Boston still is waiting for Jim Nance to show the stuff that earned him the rushing title in 17. Miami and Buffalo, to all intents and purposes, are playing out the season and. their moment of success will be achieved when one or the other definitely knows it won't wind up in the cellar this year. Atlanta, Baltimore is a seven point favorite over Detroit, Cleveland is 15 1-2 points over New Orleans, Chicago is 4 1-2 over San Francisco, St. Louis is 14 over Pittsburgh, Green Bay is three over Minnesota and Washington is three points over wlnless Philadelphia. The Giants will need all the help they can get off last week's dismal showing against Baltimore. They were shut out for the first time since 1063, the year they won the Eastern Division Championship. Minnesota beat Green Bay 26 13 in the second game of the season. The Packers, still smarting from last week's loss over Chicago on a last minute five kick by Mac Percival would be up for this one. In their last meeting three weeks ago, the Rams had to rally from a 14 0 deficit to beat the Falcons 27-14. Last week Ram quarterback Roman Gabriel went 0-for-7 passing in the second half after racking up 7-for-17 and 211 yards in the first half against the Lions. Atlanta was unable to contain the S tee Urs passing game last week and a strong game by Gabriel could rout the Falcons. Gale Savers ran all over the Packers last Sunday and just may do the same against San Francisco this week. Bear quarterback Virgil Carter completed only 5 of 14 passes for 51 yards but managed to run for another 56 on 11 carries. The Lion offense hasn't produced a touchdown In two games while the Colts defense got Its first shutout since December, 14, when Baltimore blanked New York 260 last week. The Lions are handicapped by the loss of Mel Farr while Earl Morrall has helped the Colts forget an injured Johnny Unltas. Morrall threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns last week. o RENTALS SALES SERVICE YflMflHA 2210 K. FED. HWY. OPEN MON. ft HI. I PM DELRIY 278-0766 35C3 N. FED. HWY.

By I'nited Press International Allie Sherman's Giants meet the Dallas Cowboys today and what may be New York's strongest weapon has already struck. The flu bug flew into Dallas this week and managed to get to a few of the Cowboys. Among the victims are linebacker Lee Unv Jordan, rookie flanker Dennis lloman and reserve quarterback Craig Morton. "It's supposed to be the 24-hour variety," Cowboy coach Tom Landry said Thursday," and I certainly hope it will stop quickly." Tl. Cowboys, who last week bounced back from their loss to Green Bay to drop New Orleans 17 3. arc leading the Capital Division with a 7-1 record. The Giants are in second place with a 5-3 mark and will have to upset Dallas, a 17 point favorite, to keep their slim hopes alive in the race.
