Have Rams ever won a game while it was snowing?

1968 Bloomington 31 - 3 it was definitely Snowing not a boat load but snowing.

If we are talking storming with them plowing the field to see the yard lines, I don't know how many games we have even played in those conditions. We played Baltimore and Atlanta twice a season for quite a while and were often the better team. I just don't remember the results or details

That 1968 team was a great team that got screwed on a call against the Bears. Rams protested and NFL later acknowledged the mistake

Winner winner chicken dinner!!

I thought we weren't going to get a definitive answer to this question, but @rdlkgliders just nailed it for us.

I found a highlight video of the Rams 1968 season. In the Rams 31-3 victory over the Vikes in Bloomington MN, you can definitely see both snow on the ground and active snowfall. You can catch a glimpse of the snow from the 9:54 to 9:58 mark in the video. Then later on, at the 21:02 mark, there's a full minute-long recap of the Rams victory in the snow.

Sweet!!!

many Superstars, but only one Superman, Deacon Jones!

Honestly, I'd take Merlin Olsen over Deacon. The longevity at one of the most demanding positions on the field and being a Pro Bowler almost every year at that position to boot? Merlin may just be one of the most underrated Rams of all time - and this coming from someone who only heard of his legend, never even saw him. If AD has a Merlin-like career with his current peak, he'd be the best player - not just defensive - to have played the game.

Roman's uniform being that clean in that game is hilarious. It really stands out. Rams have a crazy history with lots of ups and downs but man have they had some outstanding lines.

Hopefully this year's line will be up to snuff. I can't wait to see Bruss and Boom and what they add.

What is cool is we don't have to choose though. Both are Rams through and through. :startstruck:

Man are we blessed. :angel:

I called that 277-4744 number at the end of clip and got great 50 yard line season tickets for 1968 prices!
