Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders, known as the Washington Redskins until 2019, have been the principal NFL team of the nation’s capital since 1937. The team had a good start, winning the NFL championship in their very first year in the league as well as in 1942, but began to struggle after the end of the Second World War, not only failing to qualify for the playoffs for 25 seasons in a row, but also posting just four seasons with winning records in that same period of time (the worst being 1961 when they went 1-12-1). Washington’s fortunes immediately turned following the AFC-NFC merger of 1970, seeing the team make four straight playoff appearances including a trip to Super Bowl VII in 1972 where they lost 14-7 to the Miami Dolphins. Things got even better for the team from Washington, D.C. in the 1980s, with Washington kicking off the decade in style when they defeated the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, and Dallas Cowboys en route to a rematch with the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII. Washington won the game with a come-from-behind victory led off by a brave rushing touchdown by John Riggins followed by another touchdown by wonderfully named wide receiver Charlie Brown (no jokes about him trying to kick the football, please!). Washington was back in the Big Game to defend their title at Super Bowl XVIII in the following season, but came up against an unstoppable Oakland Raiders team and were obliterated 38-9. The men from the nation’s capital got it right in 1987 when they broke John Elway’s Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXII by a margin of 42-10. Their third Super Bowl win came in 1991 at the expense of the Buffalo Bills, carrying the day 37-24 to emerge victorious in Super Bowl XXVI. As seems their wont, Washington once again fell from a period of utter dominance and stunning triumphs into three decades of losing, losing, and more losing. The team has been to the playoffs just seven times since their last Super Bowl win in 1991, winning just three postseason games. Fans of the Washington Commanders will be hoping that their team’s habitual cycles of boom and bust return to boom time in the near future and bring a fourth Super Bowl home to the nation’s capital.
