BOSTON'S NFL EAST CHAMPS
The Packers scalp the Redskins
October 11, 1936 ... Keeping the attack of the Redskins bottled up for the entire four periods, the Packers defeated Boston, 31-2.
The Packers got their first score in the first period when Arnie Herber passed to Don Hutson who grabbed the ball on the five yard line and crossed for a touchdown, completing a 38 yard play. The Packers added
another touchdown in the second period on another 38 yard pass to Johnny Blood next to the goal post, giving the Packers a 17-0 lead at halftime. The Packers kept the Redskins bottled up throughout the second half, by continuing to drive the ball. Running plays worked the ball to
Boston’s 22 yard line and Joe Laws passed to Paul Miller for another touchdown. The Redskins scored late in the period when a bad snap from center got past Swede Johnston, the Packer fullback and went through the end zone for a safety. In the fourth period Bernard Scherer intercepted
Redskins quarterback, Ed Smith’s pass and traveled 60 yards for the last score
