Rams remain unbeaten, October 7, 1968

October 7, 2008 |  7:44 am



The Rams stayed unbeaten with their fourth victory of the season, their best start since 1949. It took a goal-line stand to hold off the 49ers in a 24-10 victory.

Players of the game: The defensive unit that held San Francisco out of the end zone in the third quarter despite having a first down at the 2 yard line. San Francisco was trailing 14-7 at the time. But the 49ers had to settle for a field goal, then the Rams answered with a touchdown.

Paragraph of the game: Actually, it's a very primitive graphic that ran on the jump page to show the goal-line stand as devised by Coach George Allen. "Goal-line defense," said Allen, "is primarily a deep desire not to let the other team score." Well, that explains everything.
