11/3/1991 at RFK Stadium everyone watched as the secondes dwindled down and the Oilers lined up for a short field goal to win the game, but the kick sailed wide and the game went into overtime. Darrell Green intercepted (Green's 5th INT of the season and ties his most in any season of his career) Warren Moonâs first pass in overtime, and 4:01 into the extra session, Chip Lohmillerâs 41-yard field goal kept the Redskins the NFLâs only undefeated team and improved their record to 9-0.
The Redskins are the 12th NFL team since World War II and the 18th team ever to go 9-0. They tied one Team Record with a 10th Straight Vctory at Home and tied another with Nine Straight Victories in a Season. The result also preserved their three-game lead in the NFC East, and more important, kept them a game ahead of New Orleans (8-1) in the race for home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs.
It was a bitter day for Coach Jack Pardee of the Oilers in his 1st trip back to Washington since being fired, as his team dropped to 7-2 with the loss and saw defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. The Redskins made it close due to turnovers as they dominated the clock, ran up 349 yards on the AFCâs top-ranked defense, with Bynerâs 112 rushing yards and with Mark Rypien completing 21 of 34 passes for 195 yards.
Art Monk caught 8 passes for 62 yards and is 2nd on the All-Time Receptions list behind Steve Largent.
And Monk has now caught a pass in 125 Consecutive Regular Season Games (4th Best Streak in NFL History).
Nice stub that only has a vertical pocket fold crease that runs thru the Redskin emblem.
