NFL fans love seeing points on the scoreboard. Nowadays, part of this has to do with fantasy football. However, fantasy football was barely a toddler when the highest-scoring NFL game in history occurred. This game was on November 27, 1966, between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. The Redskins trounced the Giants 72 to 41 en route to the highest-scoring game in NFL history, which still stands today.
Last year we were close to seeing the record broken. The Kansas City Chiefs played the Los Angeles Rams to a nailbiter on Monday Night, which resulted in the 3rd highest total game in history, the highest Monday Night totals ever, and the only time both teams reached the 50 point mark in the same game. Needless to say, this game was a greater fantasy football feast than the true highest scoring game in NFL history. This episode explores the similarities and stark contrasts of both games. So strap on your seatbelt and let’s get this baby up to 88mph.
