As football fans, we all love to see our favorite teams score big. But has an NFL team ever scored 70 points in a single game? The answer is yes, and the 1950 Los Angeles Rams are one of the teams that accomplished this feat.
On November 19, 1950, the Rams faced off against the Baltimore Colts. The game took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and it was a historic day for the Rams. They went on to score an astonishing 70 points, setting a new record for the most points scored in a single game in NFL history.
The Rams' offense was unstoppable that day, led by quarterback Bob Waterfield, who threw for 252 yards and four touchdowns. The team also had an excellent running game, with Dan Towler and Dick Hoerner combining for 202 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
While the offense was impressive, the Rams' defense also played a significant role in the victory. They held the Colts to just 27 points and intercepted their quarterback, George Taliaferro, four times.
The 1950 Rams team was one of the most dominant in NFL history. They finished the season with a record of 9-3, winning the National Conference Western Division. They went on to face the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Championship Game but lost 30-28 in a close contest.
The Rams' 70-point game in 1950 remains a significant milestone in NFL history. It is a testament to the team's talent and ability to execute on both sides of the ball. While there have been other high-scoring games in NFL history, the 1950 Rams' achievement still stands out as one of the most impressive.
