Roger Craig's High Knees TD Through Rams
Among the best runs in the career of Roger Craig, the 49ers’ running back, took place on October 16, 1988, in the first quarter of a game at the Los Angeles Rams’ Anaheim Stadium. Receiving a handoff near midfield from quarterback Joe Montana, Craig exploded through a hole and flashed into the Rams’ secondary. With his knees high and his feet constantly churning, he broke a tackle at the Rams’ 35, then another tackle 10 yards later, before sprinting gracefully into the end zone. The 46-yard touchdown was one of three for Craig on a day in which he ran for 190 yards and accounted for 21 of the 49ers’ 24 points, a game they won by 3. It was a key victory against a division rival, the Rams, who had entered the contest ahead of San Francisco with a 5-1 record; the 49ers would go on to win Super Bowl.
