It was ultimate failure for Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers. It was football shutout, which is rare occurrence in NFL, when team can’t score single point during entire game.
That is, however, common thing in college football, one example being Georgia Tech’s famous beating Cumberland College of Lebanon (222-0), or 67-0 victory by Texas A&M vs Prairie View A&M in 1916.
Professional football rarely saw shutout, making first play by Los Angeles Rams since 1994. all the more humiliating. Los Angeles Rams lost on Monday night 28-0.
In this decade, there have been only 29 N.F.L. shutouts, less than 2 percent of all games. Last season, there were two: The Bears, with Jimmy Clausen subbing for Jay Cutler, lost to the Seahawks, 26-0, in Week 3 and the unbeaten Panthers pummeled the Falcons, 38-0, in Week 14.
