4. Titans at Broncos, 11/22/62

Remember folks, this is not the Tennessee Titans. Do not adjust your screens. Young readers, the Jets were known as the Titans during the early years. This year was the final season of the Titans as they became the Jets in 1963. This was some exciting game.

On this day, the teams were involved in a shootout and both teams had to make a comeback. New York started out strong, breaking out to a 17-0 lead in the opening frame. A four yard touchdown reception by Art Powell expanded the lead to 24-7 in the second quarter. However, the tides turned from there.

Denver put up 20 unanswered points from the second quarter into the third, staking them to a 27-24 lead. A Don Maynard 35 yard touchdown pass put the Titans back ahead, but that was short-lived. The Broncos went on a run, posting 18 unanswered to take a 45-32 lead in the fourth quarter.

But here came the Titans. Two late touchdown passes by Johnny Green, one to Dick Christy and one to Art Powell, gave the Titans the 46-45 come from behind win. On a cold day, the Titans came out with the big win.
