There was no tarp in Cleveland.

The hometown Rams used close to 9,000 bales of straw to protect the field before the NFL Championship Game on Dec. 16, 1945. The Rams would use the same straw to cover their legs for warmth on a day that reached eight degrees below zero.

Sammy Baugh was ineffective. The two-time NFL champion completed only one pass before he left the game with an injury. Another attempt from the end zone bounced off the goal post for a safety in a 14-15 loss. Cleveland’s Hall of Fame bound rookie Bob Waterfield passed for two touchdowns  and won the game’s MVP award. Baugh’s replacement Frank Filchock threw two touchdowns, but Joe Aguirre missed two field goals in terrible conditions.
