Browns 14 cowboys 0

This game kind of reminded me of one of those late season games where both teams had losing records and they just wanted to get off the field......highlights for the browns was a long td pass from bill nelson to gary collins....and a 42 yd burst up the middle by jim brown as the browns were running out the clock......great players from the past include : 32 jim brown....66 gene hickerson....and 86 gary collins.....for cleveland.......great old cowboys represented were : 74 bob lilly....75 jethro pugh...and 22 bob hayes.....the next game will feature the 49ers vs the vikings.

That must have been confusing, having two Gene Washingtons on the field at once! 😊 Both pretty good wide outs.  Nice getting both of them in the same picture!

Yes....they were both very good in that era of pro football....lonnie warwick from the vikings is an old friend of my head football coach at the local high school i coached at for a long time....his good friends call him sam instead of lonnie....he lives about 40 miles north of me in a little town called mt hope...he used to bring a bunch of the mt hope kids to our summer fb camps each year....great guy.

Incidentally, I was looking at Pro Football Reference the other day, and was quite surprised that the Browns highest rated (by their way of rating0 player of all time was NOT Brown, Graham, or anyone else you'd expect, but tackle Dick Schafrath, who played during the 60s.

Schafrath was a good one....the browns had so many great players....leroy kelly was the marque rb when i first got interested in pro football in the late 60s....brown had already retired....gary collins and paul warfield and marion motley from the early days .....the 1968 season was the first one i remember watching as a kid....my very first electric football teams were the w rams and d jets....the rams were my favorite team and i picked the jets because they had just won the superbowl ...i bet i played 50 games between those 2 teams before i bought more teams...great memories.

Eagles 16 cardinals 9

My tudor friend rick will like this one ☺ . this was a good game that came down to the last play. The cardinals had the ball on the 9 yard line ..a td and extra point would send the game into overtime. But jim hart had no one to throw to and the eagles move on to the eastern division championship and will meet the winner of the browns and steelers.....some of the great old nfl players represented include : 21 terry metcalfe...36 macathur lane...66 conrad dobler and 81 jackie smith for the cards.......for the eagles ...31 wilbert montgomery...17 harold charmichael...37 tom woodishick..76 bob brown....and 88 gary pettigrew.....up next is the rams squaring off against their late 60s and early 70s playoff menace the vikings.....tudor made vikings in both blue and purple versions during the hogleg era...i have both and ill use the blue version this game.

Rams 10 vikings 7

I think it has been awhile since the rams could break the jinx against minnesota...ugly game but like they say a win is a win is a win....the vikings took the opening kickoff and 3 rushes later by bill brown..dave osborne and finally chuck foreman the vikes were up 7 to 0 ...but then the game settled down and the rams prevailed 10 to 7...the rams will move on to the western bracket final and play the winner of the bears and packers....great stars from the 60s and 70s include : 44 foreman...30 brown...41 osborne...11 joe kapp...88 alan page...70 jim marshall..and 81 carl eller for the vikings....for the rams : 33 willie ellison...38 larry smith...76 rosey grier......75 deacon jones...and 85 lamar lundy....up next is maybe the oldest and fiercest rivalry of them all ...the packers vs the bears.

Charlie, you were right, I liked that Eagles - Cardinals score!  Always great to see the old Eagles as well as a lot of the old players who are also in my league.   😊 Yup, the Pack vs the Vikings is always a good game. (My brother may have decided to root for the Vikings because I am a big Packer fan. 🤣)
