"It was the epitome of execution. We stole 35 points, not just 35 points. We did it in eighteen plays. And when you sit back and think about scoring 35 points in football, in any sport – in basketball. Eighteen plays, you score 35 points? That’s almost unheard of. A nice touchdown drive is usually about ten or twelve plays."

Fresno State safety Phillip Thomas on track to achieve NFL dream
As a 6-year-old in 1996, a California kid by the name of Phillip Thomas loved to play "Madden NFL" on his Super Nintendo, and every time, he would select the Washington Redskins.

Grading the Redskins: Defensive ends | CSN Washington
While the run defense ranked fifth in the NFL, one of the Redskins' persistent problems for much of the season was the lack of a consistent pass rush. And while there are many reasons for the drop off – injuries and a struggling secondary rank high among them – the decline in production for the ends is noteworthy. In all, the five ends on the roster (including reserves Kedric Golston and Doug Worthington) produced a combined one sack, a year after the two starters (Bowen and Carriker) totaled 11.5.
