Franklin Field - Dale Hackbart intercepted Sonny Jurgensen's pass in the end zone with less than two minutes to play to preserve the Redskins' win over Philadelphia. The win kept intact Washington’s' unbeaten record.
The Redskins pulled out to a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter, but Sonny Jurgensen answered with a 47-yard touchdown pass. After that, Philly had two good chances to take the win away from the Redskins. Bob Harrison picked off Snead's pass at the Redskin 28, but Bob Pellegrini ended that threat when he forced a fumble on a fourth down play and Claude Crabb recovered for Washington at the four. Then, with time running out, Jurgensen converted a third and 16 with a 26-yard pass to Theron Sapp to get the Eagles to the Washington 17. From there, Jurgensen seemed determined to go to McDonald for the game-winning touchdown, but Hackbart was just as determined to make the game-saving interception. Hackbart won, taking the pass four yards deep in the end zone and returning it 21 yards to the 17. Washington made sure that Jurgy didn't get another chance as they killed the clock from there.
