Series History: Redskins Falcons

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 13, 2013 – 11:15 am

(AP)

Bobby Mitchell did everything he could.

The flanker threw a successful 17-yard pass, handled 17 carries for  39 yards and caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Sonny Jurgensen to give the Redskins a three-point lead over the the Falcons in the fourth quarter on Oct. 15, 1967.

But Mitchell didn’t kick. Washington missed the extra point after his scoring catch, and the Falcons tied the contest at 20 on a 31-yard field goal from Wade Traynham. Mitchell finished the day with 114 yards receiving but had to accept a 20-20 tie in the second ever meeting between Atlanta and Washington.

The Redskins are 15-7-1 all-time against the Falcons. Read more »

(AP)

The kicker sparked the rally in the third quarter, then capped it off in the fourth.

With the Redskins trailing the Chiefs, 12-0, on Sept. 18, 1983, Mark Moseley booted a 35-yard field goal to put Washington on the board. Moseley’s 34-yard field goal in the fourth quarter finished a run of 27 unanswered points in a 27-12 victory.

John Riggins ran in a touchdown, Joe Theismann threw for two scores and the Redskins beat the Chiefs for the first and only time in franchise history. Washington would later advance to Super Bowl XVIII.

In eight meetings, Kanasas City leads the all-time series with Washington, 7-1. Read more »

(AP)

Robert Griffin III was a question mark, untested with no preseason experience. Chip Kelly stood on the sidelines wearing a darker shade of green.

In the 157th meeting between the Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles, a Week 1 marquee matchup on Monday Night Football showcased two of the most prominent NFL story lines from the summer of 2013.

How would RGIII fare in his first game action since rehabilitating a surgically reconstructed right knee? How effective would Chip Kelly’s quick-strike Oregon offense be in the NFL?
