In 1970, George Blanda was just getting started. He threw a tying touchdown pass with 1:34 remaining and then kicked the game-winning 52-yard field goal in the final seconds the following week in a 23-20 win over Cleveland. George Blanda died September 27, 2010, just last week. But in 1970, Frank Dempsey (with the Chucago Bears) kicked a 63 yard field goal to win the game. So I guess that answer would be FRANK DEMPSEY.
