The Rams moved to 2-0 with a 24-6 victory at Cleveland. The Rams broke open the game in the fourth quarter and the Browns couldn’t do anything on offense.

Players of the game: The Ram defense. A headline in The Times put it this way: "Rams’ Defense So Good It Makes Game Dull."

Paragraph of the game: From The Times’ Mal Florence: "Although the Ram offense didn’t turn killer until late in the game, it had gratifying moments."

Quote of the game: "I think it’s very exciting. The crowd is large and the halftime show was excellent. I just went out for two hot dogs and best of all, today they were hot," said Cleveland owner Art Modell, asked if the game had been the dullest afternoon he had spent in football.
