The winner advances to meet the survivor of tomorrow's Houston-Oakland contest in the A. F. L. championship game January 4. Thus, all four teams, champions and runners- up, are potentially two games away from the Super bowl on January 11. Odds here are that the Chiefs will defeat the Jets in the 12:30 o’clock (Kansas City time) meeting in Shea stadium. The Chiefs are favored by four points. Oakland rules as a 2-touchdown choice over Houston. Kansas City defeated New York, 34-16, here in November to lock up a spot in play-offs. The Chiefs came will be carried by channel 4 in Kansas City ana broadcast by radio station KCMO. Weather outlook for today is cold, cloudy and windy. Shea rates as the windiest park in the league. Sudden death rules apply in the play-offs. If the teams tie at the end of a regulation game, there will be an overtime with the first team to score by any means being the winner. With the game rated so close, the field goal kickers could play an important part and the wind plays an important part in how they perform. Jim Turner, New York specialist and the league scoring champion, has adapted his style to the wind currents here. Jan Stenerud of Kansas City has done some thinking on the wind in the last week also. Stenerud, who drew his first scoring blank in three years as pro last Saturday in Oakland, says he will have to compensate for the wind in his kicks, which have a natural hook. Jan agrees with Turner that this is the toughest park in the league in which to kick, especially on the goal toward the scoreboard. That’s the open end. Primarily tfee Chiefs will be seeking touch­ downs. Only two touchdowns have come from their offensive impetus in the last 10 quarters. And after last week’s slowdown in Oakland, the Chiefs are certain to put their game on a more high-powered note. Len Dawson is expected to fire often to Otis Taylor, three T. D. hero of the Chiefs* triumph here in November. After getting virtually no business in Oakland, Taylor should be well rested and ready. He said he was well rested as he had been shakffag off a virus. New York, which scored a clean sweep <#-0) in the East while going 2-4 against the Western division, may modify its defense to get a better job from its secondary. Peppered by the Chiefs before, the Jets may go to a 44 coverage (four rushers, four linebackers, three deep men) instead of the conventional 4-3-4. Jim Richards, the strong safety who haitia mistake-filled game against Kansas City, \#e**kl be pulled with Randy Beverly, Cornell Gordon and Bill Baird filling the deep roles in the 4-4 alignment Kansas City’s defense, of course, has the task of getting to Joe Namath. If the New York quarterback gets hot, he can turn the whole game and the odds around. Namath can be deadly in the big g&ffies as indicated last year when he spurred the Jefts io the world’s championship. The Chiefs believe they can stop the Jets and move up in the tournament. With the teams-tfjjjjy two games away from football’s top prize, tWe incentive for both will be tremendous. The Ifs of Title Game Pending the outcome of the play-off games today and tomorrow, Kansas City stiU has a chance to be host for the American Football league championship game. The title game will be held here January'* if the Chiefs defeat the Jets today and Houston upsc ts Oakland tomorrow in Oakland, Calif. If, however, both Oakland and the Chiefs should win, it will be played in the Oakland coliseum January 4. If New York and Oakland win, thiy Will meet in Oakland for the title January 4. If New York and Houston win it will be played in New York January 4. as the Chiefs relax after arriving for today’s A. F.L. play-off game with New York.
