Eagles/Redskins history - The Body Bag Game

New, comments

A little piece of Eagles history for you...

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.
