Patriots Come Back To Defeat Raiders at Fenway

Oct. 11, 1963 - Babe Parilli, the Boston Patriots quarterback, regained his early season form tonight and passed for two touchdowns in a 17-point second-half comeback for a 20-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders before 26,494 fans at Fenway Park. The Patriots’ rally late in the third and early in the fourth periods erased a 14-3 Oakland lead. Parilli’s 15-yard running pass to Tom Neumann proved to be the winning score. Parilli, apparently trapped for a loss, ducked and dodged before lobbing a soft pass to Neumann who scored from the Oakland 7. Earlier, Parilli had thrown a 56-yard scoring pass to Jimmy Colclough, and Gino Cappelletti had kicked field goals of 32 and 37 yards in addition to 2 conversions. Jim McMillin of the Raiders returned an intercepted Parilli pass 56 yards for Oakland’s first touchdown. Cotton Davidson romped 11 yards for the second Raider touchdown. For Oakland, tonight marked its fourth consecutive loss, and the Raiders now stand at 2-4 after an unhappy road trip. The Raiders outgained the Pats with Tom Flores at quarterback, 118 yards in the air to 93. But the absence of the injured Clem Daniels at halfback made the Oaklanders’ ground attack ineffectual.
