Los Angeles Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth had a birthday celebration for the ages in Week 14 of the 2021 NFL season. The Rams defeated the Arizona Cardinals in their division matchup on Dec. 13 by the final score of 30-23.

With Whitworth’s start at left tackle as he celebrated his 40th birthday, he became the oldest player in NFL history to make a start at this position. He also became the first offensive lineman to start a game at 40 years old since Ray Brown started at right tackle at the age of 42 in 2005.

To highlight this historic mark, the Hall collected Whitworth’s game-worn jersey. It is now on display in the Pro Football Today Gallery.
