r Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 17. 1968 E7 Cards, Rams, Vikings Face Road Challenges tow ?; One Point Is Clear: The Landing Brian Piccolo. Chicago has won four straight and Atlanta has lost four In a row since they beat the Giants, their only victory. Both the Packers and Saints are on losing streaks. Green Bay has dropped Its last two and New Orleans three. The Packers need this game desperately. Karl Sweetan, the Saints' quarterbacking replacement for Bill Kilmer, suffered an ankle injury last week but may be ready. If not it will be rookie Ronnie South. The Browns often have trouble with Pittsburgh and their first meeting Oct. 5 was no exception. Cleveland won 31-24 In the first start for Bill Nelsen. Leroy Kelly ran for 127 yards and caught passes for 104 yards last week against New Orleans. Pittsburgh won two straight and led St. Louis 21-0 before settling for a tie last Sunday. New orK expects trnle Koy and Ronnie Blye, two Injured running backs, to be ready for By The Associated Press St. Louis, Los Angeles and Minnesota tace serious tests on the road Sunday in a full program of National Football League games that could shuffle the standings in the four divisions. The Cardinals, 5-3-1, dropped out of a first place tie In the Century Division get the toughest assignment. They must handle the rough Baltimore Colts (8-1) In Baltimore if they are to stay close to streaking Cleveland. Los Angeles, 8-1, must sweep Its California series with San Francisco, 4-5, by beating the 49ers In their own back yard to be sure of staying even with the Colts In the Coastal Division. The Central Division race probably will go down to the wire, but Minnesota, 5-4, needs a victory at Detroit (3-5-1) to stay up there with the Chicago Bears, 5-4, who will be at home to Atlanta, 1-8. Desperate Green Bay, 3-5-1, will meet New Orleans, 3-6, for the first time ever at Milwaukee where another Packer failure could be fatal. Cleveland, 6-3, will be shooting for its fifth straight victory at Pittsburgh, 2-6-1, hoping to maintain its edge over the Cards. Dallas, 7-2, leading the Capitol Division by only one game since its upset by New York, will be In Washington, 4-5, for the first of two meetings with the Redskins in 11 days. The Giants, 6-3, will be at home to winless Philadelphia, 0-9. The Colts have been taking people apart since their loss to Cleveland, Oct. 20, The Rams, Giants and Lions have felt the sting of their super defense and balanced attack In recent weeks. They haven't met the Cards since 1964 and wlli be taking on a team that rallied strongly behind Jim Hart's passing to get a 28-28 tie with Pittsburgh after trailing at half-time 21-0. Baltimore will be without Jerry Hill, regular fullback, Injured In the Detroit game. Terry Cole will take his place. In recent games the Rams' of fense has been sputtering. It took an Interception and two recovered fumbles to get them home safe over Atlanta last week. Roman Gabriel was on the beam when they beat the 49ers six weeks ago 24-10 and may need a hot hand again against John Brodie and the nothlng-to-lose 49ers in Kezar Stadium. The Minnesota-Detroit game originally was to have been played in Minnesota but their first meeting, Oct. 6, was snift-ed out of Detroit because of the World Series. The Vikings won It 24-10 when groggy Joe Kapp rescued Injured Gary Cuozzo. Although the Lions are 1 games back, they have a chance with a victory because the rest of their schedule calls for New Orleans, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Washington while the others face tougher opposition. However, the Lions' offense has produced only one touchdown In 14 quarters. Gale Sayers' injury has forced the Bears to redesign 'heir offense around Ronnie Bull and UNIVERSITY or Kansas quarterback Bobby Douglass, left, and Oregon State fullback Bill Enyart, right, head for nose-first, one-point landings after being tripped up by opposing linemen. the Eagles Miami Set For Cincy Rid Today By The Associated Press The Oakland Raiders have slipped from the runaway champions of the American Football League to a team that has to fight to stay In the run ning for the championship. There's nothing mysterious o deep about the reason for the decline, savs Coach John Rauch. Injuries are the answer, Diego at Buffalo and Boston at Kansas City while the Raiders must play the Jets, who have virtually clinched the Eastern crown. In Sunday's other games, Cincinnati is at Miami and Denver at Houston. Miami, wnicn could win the Eastern crown with a miracle finish of victories in their last five games, two against New York, hosts a Cincinnati team that didn't allow Kansas City a touchdown until the last quarter last week. At the same time, Bob Griese had to rally the Dolphins from a 17-0 deficit against Buffalo for a 21-17 triumph.

"Last year," Rauch explained, "we were very fortunate to go through most of the season without injuries until Clem Daniels broke his leg. This year we haven't had any serious injuries but we have had a lot of aggravating ones. This has hurt the continuity of our team. "We've had so many injuries I hate to count them. I'm always looking for someone to come off the Injury list, but they never seem to make it." The Raiders lost two players, defensive tackle Tom Keating and linebacker Bill Laskey, to injuries even before the season started. One of the most damaging injuries during the season has been Hewrilt Dixon's. Hewritt's been nursing a twisted knee the last five weeks, and he hasn't been playing under full strength," Rauch said. The figures depict what the coach means. In the first four games, the bruising fullback averaged 5.7 yards a carry and led the league in rushing. In the last five, however, he's gained 175 yards In 60 carries, dropping his average to 4.5. While Rauch feels Dixon's knee has been getting better, he's not sure about the status of Duryle Lamonlca. The quarterback recovered from a knee injury sustained two weeks ago but then hurt his back in practice the day before last week's game. "He showed improvement during the week," Rauch said, 'but I'll wait until just before game time to decide whether he or George Blanda will start."
