    [textarea]October 11, 1981 -- Atlanta outgained the Rams (349 yards to 252), with 152 of those yards coming on the ground, and also had the edge in first downs (19 to 14). However, the Falcons turned the ball over three times, twice leading to LA field goals in the first quarter and once at the end of the game to finish off their hopes, while the Rams suffered two turnovers. The return game was significant for the Rams, and while Drew Hill averaged 30 yards per return on his five kickoffs, it was LeRoy Irvin who starred, scoring two touchdowns while also setting a league record with 207 yards on his six punt returns.[/textarea]

    [textarea]October 21, 1973 -- Leading just 13-7 going into the fourth quarter against the Green Bay Packers, the Rams scored their final four points on an NFL-record two safeties by defensive end Fred Dryer. He blew past tackle Malcolm Snider twice in a 5-minute span to smother first Hunter and then Del Gaizo in the end zone. "I just got beat," a subdued Snider said after the game. "I'm really embarrassed." Dryer becomes the first player in NFL history to score two safeties in the same game.[/textarea]

    Had to pick Dryer. It's rare to see one safety during a game, but two by the same guy in the same game? That's just unheard of.

    Leroy's high top fade was the difference for me.
