Comiskey Park - The Redskins outscored the Cardinals 24-0 in the second half to break open a tight game in Chicago.
The Redskins trailed 14-13 at intermission. In the third quarter, Washington took the lead for good. Dick James' 21-yard punt return to the Chicago 26 led to Ed Sutton's 18-yard touchdown run, and later in the period Sutton scored again, this time from three yards to cap a 66-yard scoring thrust. That put the Redskins up 27-14 going into the final quarter and they rolled from there.
