The Washington Redskins entered the second quarter of Super Bowl XXII (1987) trailing 10-0 to the Denver Broncos. In the second quarter, Redskins quarterback Doug Williams had the best stretch of his career. He went 9 for 11 for 228 yards and 4 touchdowns. Redskins scored 35 points in the second stanza on route to their second Super Bowl victory. Williams, the first black quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl, was named the game’s MVP. The Redskins also won Super Bowl XVII (1982) and Super Bowl XXVI (1991). Oddly enough, the Redskins Super Bowl victories in 1982 and 1987 came at the end of seasons marred by players' strikes. Founded in 1932, the Redskins also won NFL Championships in 1937 and 1942.
The Redskins play their home games at FedEx Field located in Landover, Maryland. They are the second most valuable team in the NFL (behind the Dallas Cowboys) and are one of the league's most profitable franchises. The Skins were also the first team to have a marching band and an official fight song. Aligned in the NFC East, the Redskins main rivals are their division mates Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles. Some of the all-time great Redskins include Sammy Baugh, Charles Mann, Mark May, Darrell Green, Russ Grimm, John Riggins, Art Monk, Sonny Jurgensen, and Joe Theismann.
