Griffith Stadium - Ralph Guglielmi was a very efficient 10 of 16 passing for 237 yards and a touchdown as he bested the quarterback he had been in the shadow of for two seasons, Eddie LeBaron, as the Redskins beat the Cowboys in the first meeting ever between the two teams.
An interception by Gary Glick and two nice offensive thrusts set up Khayat’s other three field goals and Washington led 19-7 in the fourth quarter. It was then that LeBaron made things interesting. He drove Dallas to the Washington two inch line where he threw the shortest touchdown pass in NFL history to Dick Bielski to shorten the lead to 19-14. The Griffith Stadium crowd, its chances of seeing the home team break a 12-game losing streak in jeopardy, got restless.
Guglielmi, however, kept the Cowboys at bay. He completed passes to Bill Anderson and rookie Sam Horner to move his team to the Dallas two and Johnny Olszewski ran it over from the one to secure the win.
