    Who remembers this Rams/Falcons classic?

    1981: No punt returner has ever had a more productive game than the one LeRoy Irvin of the Los Angeles Rams enjoys in Atlanta. In the first quarter, he returns a punt 75 yards for a touchdown and in the fourth period he brings one back 84 yards for another score in the Rams' 37-35 victory over the Falcons.

    While the two touchdowns tie an NFL record, Irvin gets a line for himself in the record book with his total of 207 yards, on six returns. This breaks the mark of 205 set by Oakland's George Atkinson 13 years ago.

    Irvin's performance enables the Rams and Falcons to set an NFL record for most combined yards on punt returns with 282 (219 for the Rams and 63 for Atlanta).

    Now that was a great game.

    I even remember where I was when that game was played.


    I was 13 years old and I watched the game at my Grandparents condo. They had converted their terrace into an enclosed TV den and had a big Lazy Boy recliner in front of the TV. That was one of the most exciting games I can recall.

    NFL Record 103 yard punt return Robert Bailey, L.A. Rams vs. New Orleans, Oct. 23, 1994. The ensuing kickoff was a failed onside kick as the rams ended up losing the ball game. As the ball settled in the endzone, the Rams and Saints players began walking off the field. Except for one Robert Baily and a few other alert Rams. Baily picked up the ball and scampered 103 yards for a TD in an otherwise blowout of a game. All the whining the Saints did was to avail as the ball had never come to rest on the stadium floor.
