Nov. 4, 1962 - The Dallas Cowboys’ rotating quarterbacks, Don Meredith and Eddie LeBaron (pictured), each threw 2 touchdown passes today as the Cowboys overwhelmed the Redskins in Washington, 38-10. The record crowd of 49,888 saw the Redskins fumble at crucial spots and generally display a feeble offense as they lost their second straight game. The Redskins had been undefeated until they were drubbed, 49-34, by the Giants. LeBaron, the league’s top passer, didn’t complete a pass in the first half, and the Redskins trailed by only 10-3. His second pass completion, however, was a 23-yarder to Amos Marsh for a touchdown that raised the Cowboys’ lead to 17-3 in the third period. Dallas had scored in the first half on a 16-yard field goal by Sam Baker and an 11-yard pass from Meredith to Lee Folkins. Dick Nolan had recovered Billy Barnes’s fumble on the Washington 30 to set up the touchdown. After LeBaron started hitting in the second half, Dallas poured it on, scoring almost at will.
