Hoosier Dome - The Redskins played just the kind of game they like to, rushing for 223 yards and holding the ball for nearly 40 minutes, but penalties and an interception that the Colts returned for a touchdown did Washington in as they fell to Indianapolis.
Early in the fourth quarter, Mark Rypien hit Gary Clark with a 53-yard touchdown bomb and it appeared that the Redskins had finally grasped control of the contest at 25-14. Even after the Colts scored a touchdown on George’s pass to Stanley Morgan, Washington responded with a field goal to maintain a one-touchdown lead.
But the Colts weren’t done. George threw another touchdown pass, this one to Robert Brooks. Then, with a minute left and overtime on the horizon, rookie cornerback Alan Grant intercepted Rypien’s pass and went untouched 28 yards to complete the shocking comeback.
