Situation: 1977 divisional playoffs, Rams at Cowboys
Injury: broken left leg
What happened: In the first half, Jack Youngblood was blocked by two Cowboys, causing his left leg to break above the ankle. Youngblood convinced the trainers to tape him up at halftime, and got a key sack of Roger Staubach in the second half of the Rams' 21-19 upset victory. Youngblood used a leg brace as the Rams defeated Tampa Bay the following week for the NFC title, and wore it again in the Rams loss to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XIV.
