Description
Photograph caption dated October 29, 1958 reads, "Elroy 'Crazy Legs' Hirsch, after nabbing a Norman Van Brocklin pass is stopped by three Detroit Lion defenders. Ron Waller, No. 27, looks on. Earlier Hirsch hauled in a Van Brocklin aerial to score the only Ram touchdown. Coach Sid Gillman's forces went down to their fourth straight Western Division defeat. The floundering Rams now await the Bears from Chicago."
