This Day in Football: Fumble Record Set

Fifty years ago today, November 15, 1964, Len Dawson of the Kansas City Chiefs set the AFL (and after the 1970 merger, NFL) record for fumbles in a game with seven in a 28-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers.  Dawson would eventually end up being the winningest quarterback for the winningest team in AFL history (Texans/Chiefs), having played in all but the first two AFL seasons.

Kansas City would finish the season with a 7-7 record, the 2nd worst of their time in the AFL.

The defending AFL Champion San Diego Chargers would finish 1964 with an 8-5-1 record, losing the AFL Championship to the Buffalo Bills in 1964 and 1965.
