Photo Flashback, Pigskin Edition

With the Eagles coming to Washington tonight to take out on the Redskins, I thought this photo from 1955 was appropriate:

The caption on the Associated Press photo reads:
EAGLES STOP GUGLIELMI
Ralph Guglielmi (3), Washington back, juggles the ball as Jess Richardson, right, Philadelphia Eagles tackle, grabs him from behind after a short gain in the first quarter, Nov. 6, at Washington. Another Eagle, left, lunges toward the former Notre Dame star.

How did Washington do that day at Griffith Stadium? The Skins won, 34-21. That season they would go 8-4, which wasn't good enough to take them to the playoffs.
