There have been many memorable games at Washington over the years, but one of the greatest took place in 1991. Dallas had started the 1991 season at 5-2 but had lost three of four games to fall to 6-5. Their twelfth opponent was Washington, which was 11-0 heading into the game.
Few gave Dallas a chance, but the win turned out to be pivotal as the team make a playoff run and eventually became the dynasty of the 1990s.
