Week before last, we put up the poll from the Rams on behalf of the NFL that offered Rams fans the opportunity to vote among five classic all-time games to be uploaded in their entirety to YouTube.
Well, the votes are in.
Leading the way with 52% of the vote was the Rams’ win in Super Bowl XXXIV. Not sure we even needed to vote for this one. It could’ve just been an automatic selection.
In second place with 20% was the Rams’ Divisional Playoff win over the Cowboys in 1986. I was a bit surprised at this one since it wasn’t a very good game to the unattached viewer as we shut out the Cowboys. As the big Eric Dickerson entry though, this one might have ridden a wave of LA support to the silver spot.
And the third game we’ll get on YouTube is the NFC Championship win in early 2002 that saw Marshall Faulk run wild. Two GSOT games seems a bit concentrated given the Rams’ lengthy history, but it’s tough to deny the peak of the St. Louis era and arguably the entire franchise here.
As the league release explains:
As voted on by NFL fans on Facebook, 96 of the most memorable games in NFL history will be uploaded to the NFL's official YouTube channel this August.
From an initial list of 160 classic games compiled by NFL Media/NFL Films in collaboration with NFL Clubs, fans made the final decision on the three most memorable games per franchise. The full network broadcasts of all 96 games will be uploaded this August in conjunction with the start of the NFL preseason.
