Mr. Consistency: Ken Houston is a Fixture in Redskins Lore


Ken Houston remembers the play like it was yesterday, only it was more than a quarter-century ago on October 8, 1973.

The Redskins were hosting the Dallas Cowboys at RFK Stadium. With 24 seconds 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-yard line. 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 Redskin victory over their most bitter rival.
