Close series

Posted by Doug on November 13, 2006

Rams fans have got to be smarting after another heartbreaking loss to the Seahawks on a last-second field goal. Perhaps you Ram-backers can take some solace in the fact that you're not alone. Here are all other instances (since 1970) of a team losing twice in the same season to the same team by two points or fewer each time:


TM1 TM2 YR Scores
============================

jax bal 1997 28-27, 29-27

While we've got the program fired up, here is a list of the opposite kind of series: those that were split, but with blowouts in both games:
