In the American Football League the Houston Oilers, as everyone expected, demolished the Oakland Raiders, 47-16, to win the Eastern Division title. The Oilers will play the San Diego Chargers in San Diego December 24 for the AFL title. This will be a replay of last year's title game and, in view of the rather listless recent efforts of San Diego (the Chargers lost to the Boston Patriots 41-0 in the last game of the season), Houston should win again.

And in the NFL, don't bet against Green Bay.
