Eagles History The Body Bag Game November 12, 1990

New, comment

A little piece of Eagles history on a Friday afternoon...

November 12, 1990, Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Monday Night Football.

In the days leading to the clash, Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan threatened a beating so severe that "they'll have to be carted off in body bags." Ryan's words were prophetic. The Eagles defense scored three touchdowns in a 28-14 win and knocked nine Redskins out of the game, including two quarterbacks. The Redskins finished with running back-returner Brian Mitchell playing quarterback.
