Jim Musick stars as the Redskins
beat the Packers, 20-7

November 19, 1933 ... Showing power, versatility and a never-say-die spirit, the Boston Redskins defeated the once high and mighty Packers at Fenway Park.  Booming kicks by Cliff Battles, pile driving runs into the line by Jim Musick, marvelous blocking by Jack Riley and Turk Edwards, and sterling defense by the Redskins as a unit, were responsible for the win.  Lengthy marches, a few ending in touchdowns, long runs, and thrilling tackles kept the crowd on its feet the whole game.

One Redskin march of 40 yards was stopped, but as the first period was ticking away, another one started from the Packer 45 and on the first play of the second period, it culminated in a touchdown.  Halfway through the second stanza, another march started on the 20-yard line and swept for 56 yards, but stalled at the Packer 24.  The third period was full of scoring.  Ernie Pinckert contributed a startling 56-yard runback of an intercepted pass for a touchdown and Bob Monnett ran back a kickoff for nearly 70 yards, starting the Packers off on a short march to their tally.  The final count came on a sustained 73 yard drive by the Redskins.

 

At the start of the game, both sides fumbled the ball away.  Ben Smith recovered a Redskin drop at the Boston 37, but when the Packers got the ball down to the 20, they fumbled it away, and let Jim Musick recover it.  Both teams spent most of the remainder of the period exchanging punts, until Cliff Battles got one at his 45 and raced down to the Packer 44-yd line.  Riding the back of Jim Musick, the Redskins pounded at the Packers until he finally made it in behind Edwards and Jack Riley as the second period started.  The third period started mildly enough, and just as the Packers seemed to be on the move, Pinckert jumped in front of a Herber pass and was off for a touchdown.  At midfield he stumbled, straightened himself up and  made it to the 25, where he was hit by three Packers, but wriggled free and made it in for the score.

On the next kickoff the ball went to Monnett at the Packer 15.  He skirted the sideline pacing 69 yards before Battles knocked him OB with a great block.  Clark Hinkle carried it over after seven plays to make the score 13-7.  In the fourth quarter, the Skins were off on another scoring march with Musick again being the workhorse, chipping his way into the end zone.
