Clipping on the back, Nov. 23, 1970-"YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS...It was George Blanda (no. 16) in the clutch again yesterday at the Oakland Colisum. With score tied 17-17 and only 7 seconds remaining, Blanda kicked a 16-yard field goal with Quarterback Daryle Lamonica holding to give Raiders 20-17 win over San Diego. Capacity crowd saw win putting Raiders full game ahead in AFC Western Division. See Sports." Photo shows Blanda just about to boot the fieldgoal with Lamonica kneeling on the ground holding the football in place. A referee is staning behind Blanda and off to one side watching. In the background, standing on the sidelines are photographers and various other miscellanous people lined up with the crowd eagerly watching from the bleachers behind them.
