Yesterday's game was far more comparable to the previously mentioned game between the Redskins and the Oilers in 1991. The Redskins came into that game with an 8-0 record. The Oilers came into that game with a 7-1 record. The Oilers should have won that game with a 33 yard chip shot field goal near the final gun. Instead, they choked.
I still remember the 1988 game against the Bears. That was Glanville's team and they won up there in Chicago. I remember the Bears were supposed to be good that year but don't remember if they really were.
