Teams: Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants
Result: 72-41, Redskins
MVPs: Sonny Jurgensen, A.D. Whitfield, Gary Wood
The highest scoring game in NFL history, the 1966 match-up between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins was one of offensive firepower and pure spite. Led by quarterback Sonny Jurgensen, the Skins were up 27-7 at the half before opening things up even more in the final portion of the game. Jurgensen threw for three touchdowns, while running back A.D. Whitfield ran for two of his own.
In the final seconds of the game, the Redskins were up 69-41, but decided to kick a field goal anyway in order to pad their lead. The reason? Redskins linebacker Sam Huff—who been released from New York three seasons earlier after years with the team—wanted to rub the dirt in the face of his old franchise. A rivalry at its finest.
