Sunday October 18th 1970 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Clarence Williams intercepted a Bart Starr pass in the final minutes of play and scooted 65 yards for a touchdown to give the Los Angeles Rams a 31-21 win over the Green Bay Packers. The loss ended a three-game Packer victory streak and spoiled Bart Starr Day for Green Bay fans. Los Angeles took a 14-0 first period lead then watched the Packers come back twice to tie it up. With the score 21-21, David Ray booted a 36-yard -field goal with 1:49 remaining to put the Rams on top, 24-21. Minutes later, as the Packers tried to race the clock downfield, Williams stepped inside Green Bay receiver Jack Clancy, then raced down the left sideline for the clinching score. Alvin Haymond, the Rams' exciting return specialist, set up one touchdown and the winning field goal with two dazzling runs. After Starr's pass to tight end John Hilton had tied the score at 14-14, Haymond streaked 67 yards with the ensuing kickoff to give Los Angeles excellent field position on the Green Bay 38. It took Roman Gabriel only 3 plays to move his team to a 6-yard run by Larry Smith.
