NFL – 1988 – NFC Championship – Minnesota Vikings Vs Washington Redskins – 3rd Qtr


In the third quarter, Redskins linebacker Mel Kaufman picked off a pass that had been deflected by Butz….which turned out to be the only turnover of the game….and returned it 10 yards to the Minnesota 17-yard line to set up Haji-Sheikh’s 28-yard field goal to send the score to 10 – 7 in favor of the Redskins at the end of the 3rd quarter.  

This Redskins team was definitely a team of destiny….for it was time for a black quarterback to win a Super Bowl….as Redskins QB Doug Williams would lead his team to a final touchdown in the 4th quarter of this game….and writing NFL history in the process.
