Philadelphia (14) over Los Angeles Rams (0)
The Los Angeles Rams' high powered passing attack is grounded
by a driving rainstorm. Tommy Thompson of the Eagles is able
for a 31-yard touchdown midway through the
second quarter. Late in the third period, the Rams'
punts from his own 5, but the kick is blocked by Eagle rookie
Ed Skladany. Skladany recovers on the 2 and runs it
into the endzone for the only other score of the game. The Eagles'
attack was led by a 196 yard rushing effort by
Steve Van Buren on 31 carries, a championship record.
