    OK boys, girls and Packer fans, here's a history question for you:

    What NFL franchises were originally known as the "Senors" and the "Titans"?

    Shockzilla's Trivia Question, Playoff Edition

    In 1959 the New York Titans became a charter member of the AFL.
    The Oakland Raiders were known only for a very short time as the Senors. They were selected as a replacement for the Minneapolis franchise which had defected to the NFL (thank god).

    Good question shock! Now I know 2 more bits of info (useful or not)!

    Shockzilla's Trivia Question, Playoff Edition

    Knowing that the Jets were originally the New York Titans, the answer must be the last choice...I gotta say that if I am correct that I never knew that the Raiders had another name (besides the Los Angeles Raiders, that is)!

    Shockzilla's Trivia Question, Playoff Edition

    Historical Moments:
    1960: Originally slated to play in Minnesota the AFL's 8th original franchise was forced to look for another home after a deal with Minnesota fell through. After briefly flirting with Atlanta it was decided to put the new team in the Bay Area. The Oakland Raiders, led by Coach Eddie Erdelatz played their first game ever at San Francisco's Kezar Stadium on September 11th where they lost to the Houston Oilers by a score of 37-22. Two weeks later in a rematch at Houston the Raiders got their first win by a score of 14-13. The Raiders would finish their first season in financial peril with a 6-8 record.
