From week of November 4, 1962. Nice solid program with minor foxing (see pics). Yep, this is the team owned by Lamar Hunt that became the Kansas City Chiefs! The Texans shared the Cotton Bowl with the NFL's Dallas Cowboys for three seasons.
The Texans were to have exclusive access to the stadium until the NFL put an expansion team, the Dallas Cowboys, there. While the team averaged a league-best 24,500 at the Cotton Bowl, the Texans gained less attention due to the AFL's relatively lower profile compared to the NFL. In the franchise's first two seasons, the team managed only an 86 and 68 record, respectively. In their third season, the Texans strolled to an 113 record and a berth in the team's first American Football League Championship Game, against the Houston Oilers. The game was broadcast nationally on ABC and the Texans defeated the Oilers 2017 in double overtime.The game lasted 77 minutes and 54 seconds, which still stands as the longest championship game in professional football history. It turned out to be the last game the team would play as the Dallas Texans. Despite competing against a Cowboys team that managed only a 9283 record in their first three seasons, Hunt decided that the DallasFort Worth media market could not sustain two professional football franchises. He considered moving the Texans to either Atlanta or Miami for the 1963 season. However, he was ultimately swayed by an offer from Kansas City Mayor Harold Roe Bartle. Bartle promised to triple the franchise's season ticket sales and expand the seating capacity of Municipal Stadium to accommodate the team.
