Dominant defense dash Patriots hopes

For the second game running Houston’s defense were the difference in a game where the score line did not reflect the reality of the Oilers dominant display. Patriots QB Babe Parilli was picked three times in the game, twice by Jim Norton and once by Mark Johnston as the Oilers defense hit their stride. The highlight of a polished performance was holding the Patriots on 4th and 3 in their own red zone and it only took a redirected pass to finally get the Patriots over the line when the game was almost out of reach. Offensively, Blanda had another good passing game with what felt like a telepathic connection with flanker Charley Hennigan racking up 144 yards for his 11 receptions. The only negative part of Houston’s game was their failure to fully take advantage of the offensive opportunities presented to them whether Blanda’s careless field goal attempts or converting big 3rd downs when in opposition territory. Nevertheless, Pop Ivy will be satisfied to see his team top of the pile this early on.

The Oilers remain on the road next week for a visit to San Diego’s Balboa stadium.
