The Bills, with a strong offensive-line, a-veteran 4efense and enough offense to cause more than an . occasional ripple, should mike it to ; ' ; the'AFL throne room for an unprecedented third straight time. While the Bills seem to be the cream of the East, a .three-way battle could develop in the Western Division with the San Diego Chargers right now getting the edge over the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. However, a majoi shift in personnel — the much-discussed trade that would send fullback Cookie Gilchrist from Denver to Oakland — could shift the favorite's role. Here's the way the entire race looks from this viewing spot. Eastern Division — 1, Buffalo. 2. New York. 3, Houston. 4, Bos- City. 4, Denver.. ...
