Oakland vs Houston

Actual:  Oakland scored with 54 seconds left to defeat Houston 21-17.  Oakland’s Gene Mingo missed a game-tying field goal with less than two minutes left in the game, but the Raiders got the ball right back when linebacker Archie Matsos recovered a fumble by Houston’s Don Trull.  Quarterback Tom Flores hit Art Powell with a 12-yard toss and then threw five yards to Alan Miller for the winning tally. Flores and Powell had teamed up on a 43-yard scoring pass in the third quarter to put Oakland in front before Trull hit Willie Frazier with a four-yard toss in the fourth period to put the Oilers ahead.
