I ween the Baltimore Colts and
New York Giants for the Na
tional Football league title
Both teams took a big step in
that general direction Sunday and
Unitas and Conerly were the ones
who led the way.
Unitas threw two touchdown
pauses and scored once himself
in a 45-14 victory over San Fran
cisco that boosted Baltimore into
a first place tie with the Forty
Niners in the Western Division.
Faced with the prospect of losing
all chance to retain the league
title they won from the Giants last
December, the Colts ran up their
highest score of the season, caus
ing San Francisco Coach lied lllc
key to comment he felt "like
freight train just ran over me."
Cornerly had much the same af
fect on the Chicago Cardinals.
Limping on a sprainod ankle, the
veteran 38-year-old Cornerly fired
two touchdown passes and had a
hand in a third as the Giants
licked the Cards, 30-20, at Min
neapolis and climbed one game
in front of the Eastern Division
race with a 7-2 record.'
Pittsburgh upset Cleveland. 21-
20, thereby knocking the Browns
out of a first place tie in the
Kastvrn Division. The Browns now
have a 6-3 record, the same as
the Philadelphia Eagles, who de
feated the Lost Angeles itanis, 23
20. The Chicago Bears kept their
faint Western Division hopes alive
with a 2414 triumph over the De
troit Lions, and Green Bay snap
ped a five-game losing Streak by
walloping Washington, 310.'
Bobby Layne led Pittsburgh
to its victory over favored Cleve
land when he passed 17 yards to
Vern Nagler with 41 seconds re
maining and then calmly kicked
his third extra point of the game,
Layne's last-minute dramatics
he beat the Giants with only 89
seconds to go last week; took
the play away from Cleveland's
Milt Plum, who had tossed three
TD passes to Ray Renfro. A
missed conversion attempt by Lou
Groza turned out to be the margin
of Pittsburgh's victory.
Field Coals Win
Three field goals by Paige Coth
ren, his last with 16 seconds left,
gave the Eagles their win over
the Rams. Cothren was cut loose
by the Rams and picked up as a
free agent by the Eacles five
