One Point: In subzero temperature, the Redskins lose in the NFL title game to the Cleveland Rams on incredibly freakish plays. Sammy Baugh's pass from the end zone hits the goal post for safety. Bob Waterfield's extra point attempt hits the crossbar and barely bounces over. The Redskins' Joe Aguirre tried a 31-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter, but strong winds gusting into Cleveland's Municipal Stadium toyed with the ball and sent it just wide of the goal post. The Rams hold on for the win, 15-14.
