The game set NFL records that still stand.

Not only that, but three weeks earlier, the Redskins had defeated the Bears in the regular season.
Yes, Slingin’ Sammy Baugh and his Redskins got totally waxed. I had a phone conversation with Sam Baugh back in the 1990s. Nice guy. He later autographed my NFL book that I sent to him. And then in 2016 on a road trip with my mom from CS to TX, I visited his grave, there in the cemetery just outside of Rotan TX.

Yes, 73-0 is a true shellacking.
