This Day In Patriots History
November 3, 1961:
For the second time in five days the Patriots beat the Dallas Texans, this time by a score of 28-21 at Nickerson Field. Cotton Davidson hit Bo Dickinson with a 40-yard pass to tie the score for Dallas, but Ron Burton returned the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for the game winning touchdown for the Patriots. The Texans outplayed the Pats in this game; Dallas finished with 364 total yards while the Pats were held to just 229; however the Patriots were clutch in critical moments. The Pats sacked Davidson four times, Frank Robotti and Chuck Shonta both had an interception, the Pats defense recovered a fumble, and Babe Parilli picked up another fumble for a one-yard touchdown.
Jim Colclough had six receptions for 64 yards, including th first score of the game, a 14-yard pass from Butch Songin. Parilli came in and threw a 7-yard touchdown to Gino Cappelletti to put the Pats up 14-0 before Dallas eventually came back to tie the score at 21. Larry Garron had a strong day with 131 yards from scrimmage: 53 yards on nine carries plus another 78 yards on five receptions.
The Patriots had beaten Dallas 18-17 the previous week, in what was a rare home-and-home scheduling by the league. The Texans did not stick around long; a year later they decided it was better to not compete head-to-head with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and they moved north, becoming the Kansas City Chiefs.
November 3, 1962:
The Patriots rallied from 14 down in the second half to tie the Buffalo Bills 28-28 on a cold Saturday night game at War Memorial Stadium. Babe Parilli completed 20 out of 33 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns for the Pats and Gino Cappelletti had seven receptions for 103 yards.
After a Buffalo score in the first quarter Larry Garron ran the follow up kickoff back 95 yards to tie the score at 7. After Parilli hit Ron Burton with a 29-yard touchdown pass the Bills returned the favor, returning the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown of their own to tie the score at 14 at the end of the first quarter. Deep in his own territory Parilli was picked off and the Bills ran it in for a 21-14 halftime lead.
Cookie Gilchrist scored his second touchdown run of the game to put Buffalo up by two scores but the Pats responded. Parilli connected with Capelletti on a six-yard touchdown pass to close the deficit to seven heading into the 4th quarter, and then hit Garron with a 23-yard touchdown to salvage a tie.
The Pats improved to 5-2-1 but the tie coupled with a win by Houston put them in second place in the AFL East, a half game behind the Oilers.
November 3, 1968:
Tom Mitchell‘s two interceptions were the lone bright spot for the Patriots in a 35-14 loss to the Broncos at Fenway Park. Denver thoroughly dominated on the ground (238 yards to 77), in the air (232 yards to 119) and on defense (harassing Tom Sherman into four interceptions on an 11-for 32 day). Jim Nance ran for 51 yards and one touchdown, and Art Graham had 48 yards receiving and a the other touchdown.
November 3, 1974:
In a battle of two 6-1 teams for supremacy in the AFC East Buffalo nipped the Patriots 29-28 at Schaefer Stadium when they blocked a last-minute field goal attempt by John Smith. It was the second time in three weeks that the Bills had beaten the Pats.
The Patriots got three touchdowns from Mack Herron, on 43 and 20 yard passes from Jim Plunkett, and then on a 2-yard run in the 3rd quarter that put the Pats up 28-26. Buffalo’s John Leypoldt kicked his third field goal of the game on the first play of the 4th quarter for the game winning points. The Pats moved into Buffalo territory but Robert James intercepted a Plunkett pass at the Buffalo 25 and the Bills controlled the ball for the next nine plays. Then with 4:35 remaining and the ball on the New England 19 Jack Mildren forced an O.J. Simpson fumble and recovered on the 25. The Pats drove to the Buffalo 29 before the drive stalled and Smith, who had missed from the 47, lined up for what would be a game-winning 46 yard field goal. The kick was blocked by Earl Edwards and Dave Washington, who also had a 72 yard interception for a touchdown.
The Patriots had taken a 21-12 lead in the 2nd quarter on a 31-yard option sweep by Sam Cunningham and threatened to go up by 16 at the half when they drove to the Buffalo 15 with 1:22 remaining. However Plunkett threw one of his three interceptions on the day and Joe Ferguson completed passes of 20 and 10 yards to Ahmad Rashad (8 catches for 115 yards) and 27 yards to J.D. Hill, setting up a one-yard score by Simpson with 19 seconds remaining to make the score 21-19 at halftime.
For the Patriots Herron finished with 66 yards rushing and 77 yards receiving, and Cunningham ran for 85 yards.
November 3, 1985:
Raymond Berry used a trick play that was installed just four days earlier to surprise Don Shula and beat the Dolphins 17-13 in a gray, drizzly day at Sullivan Stadium for their third win in a row. With the Patriots losing 13-3 in the 4th quarter and facing a 4th-and-one at the Miami 28, 295 pound OT Steve Moore lined up at fullback and led a path for Mosi Tatupu off left tackle. Tatupu however, ran a few steps and then pivoted and pitched back to quarterback Steve Grogan. Grogan then lofted an easy pass to Greg Hawthorne, who caught the ball at the Miami 5 and strolled into the end zone.
After the Patriots got the ball back Tatupu, Craig James and Tony Collins gashed the Miami defense for an 80-yard drive, culminated by Grogan scoring the winning points on a one-yard naked reverse with 3:03 remaining. James finished the game with 119 yards rushing and 35 receiving, and Collins had 49 yards rushing and 47 receiving. The win improved New England’s record to 6-3, one game behind the Jets and one ahead of the Dolphins in the AFC East.
November 3, 1991:
The Patriots gave the heavily favored Bills a scare but came up short, losing 22-17 at Rich Stadium. Buffalo entered the game with four more wins than the Patriots at 7-1 but the outcome wasn’t settled until Darryl Talley intercepted a Hugh Millen pass at the Bills’ 30-yard line with 46 seconds left. The Patriots never led but Leonard Russell‘s second touchdown run closed the gap to five points in the 4th quarter.
The Patriots defense did a good job, forcing four Buffalo turnovers and making the Bills settle for field goals to keep the game close. Russell finished the game with 106 yards on 27 carries and Irving Fryar had five receptions for 73 yards.
Three weeks later the Pats would do better than just come close and beat Buffalo in Foxboro 16-13.
November 3, 1996:
The Patriots won their third in a row, crushing Miami 42-23. Drew Bledsoe completed 30 of 41 passes for 419 yards and three touchdowns and Curtis Martin ran for three touchdowns for the Pats.
Miami led 17-14 in the 3rd quarter when Bledsoe hit Ben Coates on a 23-yard touchdown pass to give the Patriots the lead. Then with 7:30 remaining Coates caught a short pass and ran 80 yards down the sideline for another score to put the Pats up 28-17. The Pats scored two more 4th quarter touchdowns to go up by 25 before Miami scored in garbage time for the final score.
Coates finished with five catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns, Terry Glenn had ten receptions for 112 yards, and Martin had 109 yards: 53 on 18 carries and 56 on two catches.
November 3, 2002:
In the “Bledsoe Bowl” Tom Brady got the better of his former mentor as the Patriots downed the Buffalo Bills 38-7 in Drew Bledoe‘s first game facing his old team. Bledsoe actually had a decent game – 28/45 for 302 yards with one touchdown and one interception – but Brady was better, throwing three touchdowns and no picks.
The Pats were up 17-7 at the half and put the game away with a 14-point third quarter. Kevin Faulk scored from 45 yards out and then on fourth-and-3 at the Bills’ 34 Brady hit Antowain Smith for a 5-yard pass, and five plays later, Smith capped the 76-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run.
Smith finished with 11 yards rushing plus another 31 yards receiving, David Patten had six catches for 88 yards and Daniel Graham had three catches for 68 yards for the Patriots.
November 3, 2003:
The Patriots beat the Broncos 30-26 on Monday Night Football at Invesco Field to improve to 7-2 heading into the bye week. The game featured an incredibly smart but unconventional decision by Bill Belichick to take an intentional safety late in the game.
The Patriots were down 24-23, pinned on their own one-yard line on fourth down with just 2:49 left to play. Belichick had the Pats take an intentional safety, which was accomplished when Lonnie Paxton sent the snap over punter Ken Walter‘s head, hitting the goal post. The announcers openly second guessed the move (and momentarily could not tell it was intentional) at the time, but it turned out to be genius.
The Pats were given a free kick from the twenty. Aside from moving the point where the ball would have been punted up about 25 yards, Walter did not have to rush his kick, worrying about it being blocked either. After the game Belichick said he felt his team had no chance at decent field position if they had to punt from the back of the end zone; by taking the safety Walter was able to get off a 65-yard kick, with the Broncos taking over on their own 15.
Denver went three and out and the Pats got the ball back at their own 42 – a change in field position of 41 yards from when they last had it – with 2:15 still left on the clock, plus the two-minute warning after retaining time by using their last two timeouts. With thirty seconds to go Tom Brady completed a pass to Kevin Faulk for 16 yards and then on the next play hit David Givens on an 18-yard touchdown to win the game.
The Patriots were up 20-17 but Deltha O’Neal (who was covering Givens on the winning touchdown) returned a punt 57 yards for a Denver touchdown after the Pats had to re-kick due to a holding penalty on Paxton. Adam Vinatieri kicked his third field goal of the game to pull the Pats within one prior to the two scores in the final three minutes.
Deion Branch had 107 yards receiving, including a 66-yard touchdwon in the first quarter. The other Pats score came on a 6-yard pass from Brady to Daniel Graham. Brady finished 20 for 35 for 350 yards, three touchdowns and one pick; Clinton Portis led Denver with 111 yards rushing. The win just the second in the last fourteen visits to Denver for the Pats, temporarily leaving Shannon Sharpe (3 catches, 46 yards) with nothing to say.
