NFL Notes

November 7, 2017

Both 1949 NFL Title Game participants, the (8-1) Philadelphia Eagles and the (6-2) Los Angeles Rams, scored 51 points two days ago, in resounding victories against the fading (3-5) Denver Broncos and the (1-7), all time “value team,” the (1-7), New York Giants.

Since the Eagles led by Steve Van Buren defeated the Rams in that ’49 title tilt, both the Eagles and the Rams as the Los Angeles Rams, (they started in Cleveland and won the ’45 crown and won it all as a before season tremendous long shot, soon to be prohibitive favorite, as the St. Louis Rams in ’99) have each  won but one NFL title.

“Philly” did not exactly “cream” the team most associated with “cheese,” the Green Bay Packers, winning (17-13) on the Monday after Christmas Day in 1960 to win the crown (Vince Lombardi’s lone ‘offs loss as he won the next 9 and 5 NFL crowns).

Meanwhile 51, perhaps is operative, as the lone Rams’ L.A. title was won in 1951.
