The Chief- who will meet the winner of Sunday's game between Oakland and Houston for ’he VFL championship, preserved the victory by turning back three New York drives inside the 15-yard line in the final 11 minutes of play . Dawson, whose knee was the subject of much concern for the Chiefs during the week, could not move his team into the end zone until the final quarter when he drove *hem so yards in jus- two plays After the Jets' Jim Turner tied ‘he score at with a 17 field goal Dawson connected with Otis Taylor on a 61-yard pass which carried to the New York 19-yard line, On the next play. Richardson out maneuvered - oinerback Come \fter the Jets" Jim Turner lied the score at 6 -fi with a 7 yard field goal. Dawson connected with Otis Taylor on a 61* yard pass which carried to the New York 19-vard line. On the next play, Richardson outmaneuvered cornerback Cornell Gordon and took Dawson’s perfect pass without breaking stride in the end zone it appeared ¡or a while that Richardson's touchdown would ho d up easily, but Joe Namath rallied ’he Jets to within touchdown-striking distance in the final six minutes of the game Namarh moved the Jets inside the 20 with 6:01 left to play but: t he Chiefs’ defense, spaked by cornerback Emmett Thomas broke up three successive pass plays and Kansas City took over or'the IK The Chief5:, however, failed to move and the Jets gained control of the ball «nee more on their own 10 with iust over four mmutes remaining Namath connected on succes sive passes to Bake Turner and vai . lfv M orning snn George Saver to move the bail •o the Chiefs' >' ard line N ‘mam ’-hen connected with what appeared to be a touchdown pass to tight end Pei* Lammons in the right corner but the referee ruled that Lammons was ouf of bounds before he caught t he ball. Namath came right back a almost connected with Sauer for a touchdown pass but Thomas stuck up his hand at h< last moment and broke up the play. That was the Jets’ last scoring opportunity as the Chiefs took over and punted with less than 20 seconds remaining. Prior to fhe last-quarter excitement, the game was a battle of field goals. Jim Turner got the Jets a 3-0 lead in the first period with a 27* vard kick and Ja ntSenerud tied the score with a 23-yarder in the second period Stenerud put Kansas City ahead, fi-63, with a 2 >yarder in the third period bir *he normally - accurate specialist missed on £hree other oppor^u- nities inside the 30, During the regular season stenerud set an API. record by making lfi consecutive field goals The Jets missed on another big scoring opportunity just prior to Turner's second field goal m the final period Namath. aided by a pass interference penalty, got the Jets to the one-yard line m a first-and-goai situation However. wo cracks at the line failed to gam an inch and on third down and inches Namath ran a bootleg to the right, was hit by linebacker fim Lynch and threw incomplete. Instead of trying for the touchdown on fourth down, the Jets ejected to go for the field goal and Twner converted from seven yards out Namath, who was forced to throw 40 times, completed only 14 for 164 yards and had three intercepted. Dawson, who threw only six passes against Oakland a week ago threw 27 times and completed 12 for 201 yards He did noi have any intercepted. * r*t <1«>VS «lush 5 ,*ra*§* J*«»tr ç vara»®* R*>V-R /*rd*Q* Passes O.J-V>'.
