Redskins Legacy: A Crazy Finish vs. the Eagles

Redskins Legacy: A Crazy Finish vs. the Eagles


In its 36-year history as the Redskins' home, RFK Stadium was the site of many wild games.

You had days, for instance, when the Redskins recovered from a huge deficit to pull out a last-minute 37-35 win over the Raiders in 1983, or when they yielded 522 passing yards to an aging quarterback, Boomer Esiason, in a heart-wrenching 37-34 overtime loss to the Cardinals in 1996.

Another wild one took place 25 years ago. It's remembered for a freak ending that would haunt the Redskins in a season when the 10-6 squad barely missed the playoffs.
