Redskins Legacy: "Over The Hill Gang" Spills Oilers


It was 1971, the Redskins' first season under coach George Allen.

Coming off a 6-8 year and with only one winning season since 1955, the Redskins had become the talk of the NFL by winning their first three games against the St. Louis Cardinals, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys -- all on the road.

The time had come for the veteran-laden team known as the "Over The Hill Gang" to open at home.

Their opponent: the Houston Oilers.
