Washington Redskins Top Eagles, Remain Undefeated

Oct. 21, 1962 - Who said the Washington Redskins were doing it with smoke and mirrors? The Redskins remained undefeated and at the head of the NFL’s Eastern Conference today through fancy offense and alert defense as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-21. Thus the once-lowly Skins, who won only one game last year, scored their fourth victory of the season. They have played two ties. This surprising team, sparked again today by Norm Snead and Bobby Mitchell (pictured), is the first squad of Redskins since 1944 to go as far as 6 games without a loss. Snead, a second-year quarterback, and Mitchell, acquired from Cleveland this year, got the scoring started on a 28-yard pass play for a touchdown in the second period. The Eagles never managed to surpass the Redskins from then on, though they tried hard before the 60,671 fans at Philadelphia’s Franklin Field.
