RECORDS TUMBLE AS OILERS ENJOY BLOW-OUT VICTORY

A supreme first half performance in all three phases of the game ensured a routine victory for the Oilers return to Jeppesen. Houston completely dominated the game and could even afford 3 interceptions as the defense shackled Buffalo and blunted every attack allowing a single field goal attempt from their beleaguered opponents.

George Blanda recorded a career high 22 completions and for the second successive week broke his record for passing yards with 313. The receiving yard record set last week by Bill Groman was also broken when Charley Hennigan made 14 receptions for 196 yards, bettering Groman’s tally by 2. Hennigan has received close attention this season by his markers but this time he managed to get the better of the defense and show his true potential in explosive fashion.

Houston have a shorter than normal rest before their next game at Boston on Friday 13th.
