Sept. 9, 1960: On this first football Sunday of the 2012 NFL season, we look back to the first football Friday (or any day) in American Football League history. That's when two of the league's eight teams squared off, with coach Frank Filchock and his Denver Broncos walking off with a 13-10 win over the host Boston Patriots.
