The Washington Redskins have experienced lengthy success against the Philadelphia Eagles, defeating their NFC East foes more than any other opponent dating back to their first matchup at Fenway Park in 1934, a 6-0 victory.

But, throughout their entire time competing against each other, they’ve only squared off against each other in the playoffs one time — a Wild Card Round game on Jan. 5, 1991.

Both the Redskins and Eagles made the playoffs as wildcards (the New York Giants won the division), but due to several tiebreakers, Philadelphia was seeded higher than Washington thus making Veterans Stadium the host site of the game.

Early on, the Eagles looked to be in control in front of the home crowd, taking a 6-0 lead on two Roger Ruzek field goals, but that would be the end of Philadelphia’s scoring, though, as they would be shutout during the rest of the game

Mark Rypien would toss two touchdown passes, meanwhile, and Chip Lohmiller would convert on two field goal attempts.The Redskins would win the game by a final of 20-6, as Buddy Ryan would coach his last game for the Eagles.

Below is a box score of that game:
