For the upcoming print edition of Warpath, I wrote a filler piece about the Redskins-Giants game in 1966 that Washington won 72-41. I wrote that the 113 points scored still stands as an NFL record for a game.
The Browns and Bengals nearly rendered that statement false before it saw the light of day. Their game ended at 58-48, their 106 combined points coming within at touchdown and an extra point of tying that record.
On their last possession the Browns, trailing by 10, had the ball and managed to get near midfield before giving it up on downs with 12 seconds left. Cincinnati then killed the clock, preserving their win, the Redskins’ record, and my credibility.
