Well, it is pretty easy to answer that question now, more than 50 years later. But is September 1962, the Oilers were working towards their third consecutive division title, with three other teams hot (or not) on their trail.
Sports Illustrated took an early-season look at the Eastern Division race in the following ARTICLE, and determined that the Oilers were again odds-on favorites to capture the flag.
My favorite quote of the article? “as training days piled one on another the Titans began to look more and more like the Mets.” If you don’t know about the 1962 Mets, look them up HERE… Ouch!
