Ken Houston remembers the play like it was yesterday, only it was 30 years ago on October 8, 1973.

The Redskins were hosting the Dallas Cowboys at RFK Stadium. With 24 second left, the Cowboys trailed 14-7 and faced a fourth-and-goal at the 4-yard line. Fullback Walt Garrison caught a pass at the 1. But Houston came up from his safety position, picked him up and wrestled him to the ground a few inches from the goal line, preserving a victory over the Redskins' most bitter rival.
