Flashback: Redskins-Rams in `45 Title Game

The Redskins have enjoyed two glory periods in their history, one during the Joe Gibbs-I era in the 1980s and early-90s and the other during a 10-season stretch spanning their last year in Boston, 1936, until 1945.  In the earlier period, the Redskins appeared in six NFL championship games, the last of which came against the Cleveland Rams (now St. Louis Rams) on Dec. 16, 1945.  It was an infuriating day for the Redskins before 32,178 fans at Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium.  Washington was stricken with bad luck, while Cleveland played with what seemed like a ghostly 12th man and profited from an inexplicable decision by Redskins coach Dud DeGroot.  Those circumstances helped propel the Rams to a 15-14 win.
