Today In Patriots History – August 14, 1960. The Patriots play their first home game ever. From Patriots.com:
Patriots play their first home game ever at Harvard Stadium, a 24-14 loss to the Dallas Texans before 11,000 fans.
For the 1960 season, the city of Dallas actually had two expansion teams, the NFL Cowboys and the AFL Texans. Coached by Hank Stram, the Texans were actually the more successful squad on the field for the three seasons that they shared The Big D. After their 11-3 1962 season, however, team owner Lamar Hunt moved the team to Kansas City, where they became the Chiefs.
