Washington Redskins (7-3) 14, Green Bay Packers (7-4) 6
Sunday November 28th 1937 (at Washington)
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(WASHINGTON) - That sinister character of the gridiron known as Slingin' Sam Baugh bobbed up once more to confront the Green Bay Packers on
Sunday at Griffith stadium and when the
business of the afternoon was at an end the
Packers found themselves the party to the
second part of a 14-6 score. Baugh, the hard
galloping, pass throwing back from T.C.U, 
and his new mates, the Washington
Redskins, were on the business end of the
tally. Slingin' Sam didn't start the fray, but
when he entered rapidly changed the
complexion of the entire matinee with his
lighting like rushes and aerial bombs.
Playing on a surprisingly dry field that had
been covered during the all-night rain, the
Packers rushed to a score before the end of
the first quarter. In the second the elevens
bruised each other around the lot with Baugh
a constant threat. In the third stanza, 
however, Sammy whetted his arm and with a
pass and run good for 53 yards, from the line
of scrimmage set up the initial Capital City
score. The Packers came back determined
to make a battle of it but about midway in the
final period Washington intercepted a Packer
pass, and before the assembled bereaucrats
in the some 30,000 present had adjusted
themselves, Sammy had carved out another
score for the Redskins by the grace of his
good right arm. The Packers missed a place
kick from the 30 early in the first quarter and
had been engaged in a punting duel with the
New Deal representatives when they finally
set out for 61 yards and a score halfway through the first quarter.
PASSES TO LAWS
Riley Smith, Washington quarterback, punted out on the Packer 39 and the Green and Gold clad players went to work. Two line plays didn't get anywhere but
then little Bobby Monnett faded back and shot a pretty
forward to Joe Laws, who was given excellent blocking
and encouragement from his teammates as he stepped
mincingly along to the Washington 46. Clarke Hinkle
made five yards on a steamroller shot through the 
middle and then Monnett tossed to Don Hutson, who
was stopped for another first down on the Washington
33. The Redskins tried a filibuster but the referee broke
it up after the usual two minutes and the Bays went
back to work. It was third down, seven to go on the
Washington 30 when Monnett passed to Laws, who 
was dumped on the 24, about a yard short of a first 
down. Schneidman, on a sneak play, wormed over the
needed yard. Laws and Hinkle drove to the 11. With 
fourth down and seven to go on the Washington eight,
the Packers scored. Hutson cut into the end zone,
running one way while Baugh ran another, proving his
judgment as wet as a sleepwalker weekending a house
boat. The ball floated easily into Hutson's paws and the
score was 6 to 0. Ernie Smith's placement attempt was
brushed to one side by the furious Redskin forwards.
Baugh functioned in the third quarter when with the ball
on the Redskin 28 he dropped back, looked deliberately
down the field until he spotted Malone, and then
launched a gigantic heave that the fleet end caught and
carried to the Packer 19. Cliff Battles personally
escorted the first Redskin tally over a few moments
later and Riley Smith made it 7-6 with a perfect kick. In
the last quarter, with the Packers trying desperately to
score, the Redskins intercepted a Packer aerial on the
Green Bay 34. This time, Malone, feeling slighted
perhaps for not having gone the distance on his other
effort, took a Baugh toss and then staggered and 
lunged several steps over the double stripe. Once again
Riley Smith finessed the extra point.
GAME HARD FOUGHT
The game was clean, even and hard fought throughout,
each side picking up 13 first downs. The Packers made
235 yards from scrimmage on passes and rushing and
Washington gleaned 241. The only serious penalty of
the game came when Ed Kahn, Redskin lineman, was
detected slugging and the referee paced off half the
distance to the goal as Mr. Kahn was excused for the
balance of the afternoon. Baugh and Vice President
John Nance Garner handled the Washington passing,
the No. 2 New Dealer throwing the ball in to start the
game. Baugh's passes, however, were longer, and
straighter. It was announced that the crowd was the
largest ever to attend a professional football game in the
Capital City.

NEWS AND NOTES
BEARS ANNEX WESTERN HONORS
NOV 29 (Chicago) - The Chicago Bears ruled today as
undisputed professional champions of the West. The
Bears, at Wrigley field, has little trouble defeating the
Cleveland Rams, 15 to 7, to clinch the division title. In
winning their eighth game in 10 starts this season, they
scored touchdowns in the first and second periods and
watched Jack Manders boot a field goal in the third.
Cleveland scored its touchdown in the third period on a
forward-lateral, with Ralph (Primo) MIller going over the
Bear line. The game was played before a small
"homecoming" day crowd of 4,188. Forty former Bears
watched the game. It gave Chicago its eighth victory of
the year against one defeat and one tie. They meet
their inter-city rivals, the Cardinals, in the season finale.
Even if the Bears had lost to Cleveland, they still would have won 
the Western title because of Green Bay's unexpected 14-6 loss to 
the Redskins.
JANKOWKSI HURT IN GRID DEFEAT
NOV 29 (Washington) - Emergency hospital attaches said today 
the condition of Ed Jankowski, Green Bay Packers' football fullback,
was "just fair". Jankowski received a possible skull fracture in 
yesterday's prof football game with the Washington Redskins.
Taken to the hospital unconscious, the former Wisconsin university
star rallied in the early part of the evening. The hospital said he
spent a "fairly comfortable night." The hard hitting 205-pound back
was a standout on the Packers' defense, although his team lost, 14
to 6. He was hurt when knocked off his feet by two Redskin
blockers late in the game.
PACKERS RETURN TO CITY TODAY
NOV 29 (Green Bay) - For Packer fans who read this notice before
4:40 this afternoon, this is a notice that the Green Bay team will
arrive at that hour from its eastern invasion, and all fans who
appreciate the men's work during the past season are urged to visit
the Oakland avenue station of the Milwaukee Road to extend them
a welcome.
LOOKING UP IN THE REALM OF SPORTS
NOV 29 (Green Bay) - The first overflow crowd of the 1938 season 
will wrap itself around the enlarged City stadium next fall if the
Packers are successful in scheduling either the New York Giants or
the Washington Redskins on the Green Bay gridiron. The Giants,
who haven't visited the West for quite a piece, might find the 24,000
capacity setup to their liking, and bring into Green Bay the team
which crippled the Packers' 1937 championship hopes. Or the
Redskins, who tacked on a final cuffing yesterday, might feel a bit
enthusiastic about invading City stadium with Slingin' Sammy 
Baugh, the Packers' greatest nemesis in tow. Baugh is carrying on
in the wake of other great professional athletes who from time to
time find it necessary to assume a personal responsibility in 
preventing Green Bay from winning football games. Back in the
middle twenties it was Red Dunn, then with the Cardinals, who 
spoiled several good afternoons by personally walloping the team
he later was to serve. Then came Ernie Nevers, also of the Cards,
with the capacity to humble two or three great Packers teams at a
time when the defeats hurt the most. Dutch Clark, who followed 
Nevers, hasn't been able to upset the Bays very often, but he has
thrown many a vigorous scare into the Packer ranks, and may do
so again, despite his recent declaration of withdrawal from active
competition. Now along trots Mr. Baugh, the former Texas Christian
gent who for some reason or other decides to play his greatest
football when Green Bay provides the opposition. This is very nice
for Washington and boosts pro football in general, but it is getting
tough on the Packers. Yes, Mr. Baugh would put on a great show
out at City stadium, and so would the New York Giants. They'd start the directors scratching their heads about where to put some more seats. The Redskins and Giants are about as similar as the Stroud Twins, but they know how to play football the same lively way. Drop in at the Northland tonight and talk it over with the Packers.
