Jan. 31, 1988: Redskins Destroy Denver in SB XXII

Jan. 31, 1988: Redskins Destroy Denver in SB XXII

On Jan. 31, 1988, lightning shaded burgundy and gold struck in Super Bowl 22 in San Diego.  In a breathtaking sequence, the Redskins amassed 35 points and 356 yards in less than six minutes in the second quarter.  The onslaught obliterated a 10-point Denver lead and catapulted the Skins to a 42-10 rout.  Their triggerman was quarterback Doug Williams, who recorded one of the greatest feats in an NFL championship game.  He threw for a Super Bowl-record 340 yards and four TDs, on a day he was the first black quarterback to start in a Super Bowl.  He was named game MVP.  Running back Timmy Smith, receiver Ricky Sanders, the “Hogs” and the Skins’ D also dominated.
