Five stories Redskins fans might not have heard about the 1988 Super Bowl

By Jake Russell January 31 at 6:31 AM

Washington’s rout of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXII remains an unforgettable part of Redskins lore, from the team’s 35-point second-quarter explosion to Doug Williams making history as the first Super Bowl-winning black quarterback.

But the team’s 42-10 trouncing of Denver in San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium — which happened 30 years ago Wednesday — also included some less familiar anecdotes. Here are a few choice moments you might not remember.



A great five stories, reported by our Jake!

Yes, that's OUR young Jake, son of Terry, who, for an avatar, used a training camp picture of little Jake riding on the shoulders of a Redskin lineman.

(And I didn't know those stories, either!)
