Points Scored: St. Louis Rams 1447, New Orleans Saints 1299
As predicted, the Saints were going to be tough.
For three quarters, the Rams stumbled and fumbled along. Ron Jaworski was having his worst day at QB.
Ron was sacked three times for 29 yard and was only 3 for 11 for 15 yards.
A minus 14 yard day.
But, like always the defense kept the Rams in it.
In fact, the Rams have a 10-0 lead.
But, it doesn't last. The Saints score making the score 10-7 Rams.
Coach Knox tell Haden to "Warm up".
The Saints drive the ball to the Ram 11 and the Defense forces the Saints to go for the tying FG.
It's good and the score is 10-10.
Pat Haden is now the QB. When he gets in the Ram huddle, Tom Mack told Haden to stand up. Haden replied "I am standing up".
Mack said "Oh" and all 11 started laughing.
It loosened everyone up for the task at hand.
Ram's OC, Kenny Myers, put in this pass play called "29 FX POST".
It was designed to play on the aggressiveness of their free safety. The play called for Ron Jessie to cut over the middle, pump fake to him and hope the safety bites. Leaving Harold jackson 1 on 1.
The safety did bite and Haden lofted the ball as he got nailed. Haden was waiting for the crowd of 60,000 either to scream in approval (interception) or groan is disapproval (something good) but this crowd was silent.
It was only when he saw the ref raise his arms for a TD.
Dempsey missed the extra point.
And the Ram defense was sterling. Jack Youngblood sacked Bobby Douglas for a 11 yard loss.
Hacksaw dropped Muncie on a draw for a 2 yard loss.
And the next two passes were hurries and fell to the ground.
The Rams win 16-10 for their 5 straight win.
All that stood in the way of a first ever playoff appearance was the Los Angeles Rams. The winner would advance as a wildcard contender.
The loser would stay home.
Late in the fourth quarter, with a slim 24-23 lead the Saints found themselves facing fourth down inside the Rams 35 yard line.
Instead of attempting a 49 yard FG, Bum made the descision to punt it away.
With the ball back, the Rams drove 55 yards and with 6 seconds left in the season, Mike Lansford hit a 42 yard score to win for the Rams.
The Saints stayed home.
Ironically, it was L.A.'s only offensive points of the game.
The Rams scores came on a saftey, a punt return TD and 2 interceptions returned for scores.
Ram QB Vince Ferragamo didn't even complete a pass until the last drive.
The Rams were back in the playoffs with a 26-24 win.
That was all about to change in a big way as Anderson recorded one of the greatest offensive displays in NFL history during the Los Angeles Rams' overtime win against the New Orleans Saints.
With their leading receiver Henry Ellard on the sidelines, the Rams were relying on Anderson to have a heavier presence on offense.
He responded by shattering the NFL record for receiving yards in a game. During the afternoon, he caught 15 passes for 336 yards and one touchdown.
Not surprisingly, it was Anderson who put the exclamation point on his amazing afternoon when he hauled in quarterback Jim Everett's pass for a 26-yard gain in overtime.
His catch set up the game-winning field goal by kicker Mike Lansford at 6:38 of the sudden death period to give the Rams a 20-17 victory.
