Rams win against Falcons, November 11, 1968


"Oh! What a Lovely War," 1969

1968_1111_sports The 1968 Rams weren't known for their offense and things hit a low point at Atlanta. But the Rams had enough defense to edge the Falcons, 17-10. It just wasn't pretty.

Jack Pardee returned an interception 29 yards for a score that gave the Rams a 7-3 halftime lead. Roman Gabriel's touchdown pass to Jack Snow in the fourth quarter broke a 10-10 tie.

Gabriel fared a little better than Atlanta quarterback Bob Berry, who took a forearm in the head from Deacon Jones. Berry's helmet came off but made it back into the game eventually.

"I never thought Berry would come back," Jones told The Times' Bob Oates "If his helmet doesn't come off his head does. It was beautiful."
