This is a big one folks. On December 17, 1933, the NFL kept stats for the first time. The game, which was also the first NFL Championship, was between the Bears and the Giants. It was played at Wrigley Field in front of an estimated 26,000 fans and the Bears beat the Giants 23 - 21. The Bears were coached by George Halas and led by future Hall of Famer Bronko Nagurski, who rushed for 65 yards that day. Here are the official stats that we have for this monumental game.
Bears: 311 total yards - 150 passing and 161 rushing / 1 Turnover
Giants: 307 total yards - 208 passing and 99 rushing / 1 Turnover
So, who wants to start the petition to officially declare December 17th as an official holiday for all fantasy football players?
