The Redskins travelled to Philadelphia on Oct. 9, 1994, so the monumental record-breaking moment in front of the home fans would have to wait.

Linebacker Monte Coleman, whose entire career with the Redskins (1979-1994) spanned over three decades, played in his 206th official game that day, breaking Art Monk's team record of games played.

In his 16 years in Washington, Coleman collected 43.5 sacks, 17 interceptions and three touchdowns.

Coleman would retire at the end of the season with 216 career games played, a record that would eventually be broken by Redskins great Darrell Green.

Green now sits at 12th place on the all-time list with 295 games played.
