This Week In Redskins History: Darrel Young And Mark Moseley

It's the first week of November, which means the weather is beginning to turn colder and the games are beginning to become more meaningful.

This week, we look back at a couple big games that came down to the wire.

The first, which took place on Nov. 3, 2013, saw fullback Darrel Young collect a banner day, scoring three touchdowns, the last of which came in overtime on a 4-yard touchdown run to lead the Redskins to a 30-24 victory over the Chargers.

"Just to say we can come back and win this game like this…it's a credit to everyone, coaches, players. It's coaches emphasizing and players executing," Young said. "That's what's been the difference in the past couple of weeks. Today, we just executed and finished."

The other took place on Nov. 7, 1976, when quarterback Joe Theismann threw for 302 yards (200 of them to Frank Grant) and three touchdowns (all of them to Jean Fugett) against the 49ers at Candlestick Park.

The game was saved with a 39-yard field goal from kicker Mark Moseley to put the Redskins ahead for good, 24-21.
