High-Scoring NFL Game: Eagles and Redskins Combine For 87 Points
The highest-scoring NFL game of all time was the Washington Redskins against the New York Giants in 1966, when the Redskins pounded the Giants to the tune of 72-41.
Last night the Redskins were on the other end of one of the higher-scoring games and blowouts in the history of the league. The two teams combined for 87 points in Philadelphia's 59-28 blowout of the Redskins on Monday night.
The point total fell short of the Monday Night Football record for points scored, which was set in 1983 in a game with the Green Bay Packers and ironically enough, the Washington Redskins, who lost to the Packers 48-47 in that game.
The Eagles could have possibly helped break that record if Andy Reid didn't decide to finally have mercy on his opponent, call the dogs off and play a more conservative gameplan. But that's just not the type of coach and person Reid is.
