Giants Top Cowboys, 41-31, as QB Tittle Sets Touchdown Mark

Dec. 17, 1962 - At Yankee Stadium yesterday before a sellout crowd of 62,694, the Giants ran their winning streak to 9 games as they ended their regular season. They beat the Dallas Cowboys, 41-31, with quarterback Y.A. Tittle leading the way. Tittle hurled 6 touchdown passes and increased his season total to 33, surpassing the old NFL record of 32 set by John Unitas of the Colts in 1959 and equaled last year by Sonny Jurgensen of the Eagles. However, Unitas established the mark in a 12-game season; this was Tittle’s 14th game. Don Chandler set a Giant scoring record of 104 points for one season. The old mark of 102 was established by Gene Roberts in 1949, also a 12-game season. Chandler, a kicking specialist, booted five extra points. His final attempt was blocked. This morning at 9 a.m., tickets for the Packer-Giants championship game went on sale at Yankee Stadium. Of the 63,000 tickets, about 45,000 have been reserved for Giant season-ticket holders.
