  • The Redskins scored 42 points?? Its a miracle!!

    9.2
    Seriously! The Washington Redskins along with many others, for example, the Miami Dolphins, are only avaraging probably 15 points per game, and that sucks for sure. The 'Skins don't have many exciting games or seasons anymore either. But when some day, the Redskins score 42 points after being down 10-0 . . . well, you'll see faints, and black outs, etc. Thats how shocking it is to hear about the Washington Redskins [or any team like the Skins] score 42 points, and 35 in a quarter of any NFL game! And I'm especially surprised that they did it here in the Super Bowl: Super Bowl XXII!moreless
