Throwback Thursday: Redskins Crush Lions In NFC Championship Game

Posted Jan 14, 2016

For today's Throwback Thursday moment presented by Subway, Redskins.com looks back at the Redskins’ 41-10 NFC Championship Game victory over the Lions on Jan. 12, 1992.

For today's Throwback Thursday moment presented by Subway, Redskins.com looks back at the Redskins’ 41-10 NFC Championship Game victory over the Lions on Jan. 12, 1992.

The 1991 Washington Redskins were easily one of the most dominant teams in the Super Bowl era.

Starting the season with 11 straight wins, the Redskins finished the regular season with a 14-2 record behind the league’s top offense (485 total points) and the league’s second-rated defense.

After defeating the Atlanta Falcons 24-7 in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Redskins hosted the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 12, 1992, at RFK Stadium.

Just as they had in the season opener when they defeated Detroit 45-0, the Redskins manhandled the Lions, defeating them by a final of 41-10.

The Redskins jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter after a Gerald Riggs two-yard touchdown run and a Chip Lohmiller 20-yard field goal.

After the Lions responded early in the second quarter with an 18-yard score, Riggs scored from three yards out halfway through the second quarter to have the Redskins jump out a 17-7 lead.

In the fourth quarter, Pro Football Hall of Famers Art Monk and Darrell Green each scored a touchdown to put the finishing touches on the Redskins’ fourth Super Bowl appearance during Joe Gibbs’ tenure.
