NFC DIVISIONAL PLAYOFF
Washington Redskins (11-3) 16, Green Bay Packers (10-4) 3
Sunday December 24th 1972 (at Washington)
(WASHINGTON) - Curt Knight kicked three field goals, and Bill Kilmer tossed a touchdown pass to Roy Jefferson to lead Washington into the NFC Championship game. The Redskins used a five-man defensive front line and shut down the Green Bay running game, holding John Brockington to nine yards on 13 carries. Larry Brown, who sat out the last two regular season games, carried 25 times for 101 yards, the seventh time he passed the 100 yard mark this season. Chester Marcol's 17-yard field goal gave the Packers a 3-0 lead, but the Redskins scored the last sixteen points of the contest. The loss turned out to be the last game Ray Nitschke ever played for the Green Bay Packers.
