The Boston Redskins win the 1936 NFL East title and
play their last game in Boston

BOSTON REDSKINS

ON THIS DATE (November 29, 1936) ... Capitalizing on every break handed them, the Redskins racked up 227 yards rushing and holding the Pittsburgh Pirates to a net loss of two and crushing them in a 30-0 laugher. Cliff Battles was back in his usual form, running off tackle for consistent gains and running back kicks for 91 total yards.  He shared honors with young Vic Carroll, who came in at the end of the first half, when Eddie Kahn reinjured his knee, and turned in a phenomenal performance at guard.  He also recovered three fumbles and intercepted a pass for a touchdown.  Turk Edwards, not to be out-done, recovered a Pittsburgh fumble in their own end zone for another touchdown.

(The Redskins would clinch the NFL East and go on to play the Packers for the 1936 NFL Championship.  The championship game was moved out of Fenway Park to the Polo Grounds in New York, by Redskins' owner George Preston Marshall because only 4,813 fans showed up for this game.  The Redskins would never play in Boston again. Marshall moved the Redskins to Washington D.C. following the season.)
