Date: 9/24/2001
Game: Washington Redskins @ Green Bay Packers

At a time when the country was still filled with solace and gloom, the Packers and Redskins gave the American people a minuscule but essential return to normalcy. Two weeks after the terrorist attacks the NFL and many other sports leagues began retuning to their regular schedules. Oddly enough, at least one person who worked in the World Trade Center said he would've been in the towers had he not stayed up to watch MNF and overslept on the morning of 9/11.
