Eighteen years ago today, the stands bounced one last time, “Hail to the Redskins” was sung one last time and the Washington Redskins defeated the Dallas Cowboys at RFK Stadium one last time.
On Dec. 22, 1996, the Redskins hosted the Cowboys in a game that would mark the end of RFK Stadium’s 36-year run as the Burgundy and Gold’s home.
The Redskins, just as they had several times before, cruised to a victory over the Cowboys. Led by Terry Allen’s three-touchdown performance and more than 345 passing yards from Gus Frerotte, the Redskins would win the game by a final of 37-10.
But, while the game was certainly a great one for the Redskins, the day was more about the stadium’s lengthy run. The Redskins finished their time at RFK Stadium with a 173-102-3 record, including an astonishing 11-1 record in the playoffs.
Below are some highlights from that last game, including “Hail to the Redskins” being sung one last time:
