This Day in History: 1942 NFL Championship


The 1942 NFL Championship game was played on December 13, 1942 at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C. This NFL Championship game was between the undefeated Chicago Bears and the Washington Redskins. The Chicago Bears, led by quarterback Sid Luckman, were co-coached by Hunk Anderson and Luke Johnsos after George Halas had entered the U.S. Navy. The Washington Redskins were led by coach Ray Flaherty and quaterback Sammy Baugh.

The Redskins defeated the Bears 14-6. Just two years earlier, the Bears had crushed the Redskins 73-0 in the title game. Sweet revenge? Perhaps.
