Cardinals vote on new pope; Lions win over Rams, October 27, 1958

The Rams lost their rematch with the Detroit Lions, 41-24, who finally looked like a team that won the NFL title in 1957.

Players of the game: The Lions’ defenders, or as The Times’
Cal Whorton called them, “the pilfering Detroiters.” Rams quarterback Bill Wade had six passes intercepted and rookie quarterback Frank Ryan added another in the game’s closing minutes.

Paragraph of the game: “The crowd did an unusual thing when the Rams were unable to work up a head of offensive steam. They started booing.” Really, booing the home team was unusual in 1958 Los Angeles?
