BABE PARILLI

FOOTBALL AT FENWAY  
Babe Parilli sparks a second half 20-14 rally

October 11, 1963 ... The Patriots today came roaring from behind to tip the Oakland Raiders 20-14 at Fenway Park on Friday night, in a spectacular scoring explosion that has been lacking all season.  The Patriots scored 17 points in just under 5 minutes to blow the Raiders off the field. Throttled all season by nagging injuries, Babe Parilli came to life late in the third quarter.  A 56-yard pass play to Jimmy Colclough was good for a touchdown.  Following Oakland’s second touchdown, the play was what the Patriots needed.  From that point on this was the team the fans expected to see.  An Oakland fumble thanks to Bob Dee, kept the scoring blitz going.  This led to a Cappelletti field goal and put the Patriots one point behind 14-13.  On the first play after the next kickoff, Houston Antwine and Ross O’Hanley dumped Bo Roberson who lost the football on the 20 yard line.  Parilli started the fourth quarter connecting with Tom Neumann who whirled around, caught the ball, and fell in the end zone.  It wasn’t a brilliant game and Parilli has a long way to go.  But in games where the stats were great and the team lost, this one was a thriller.
