The longest drive in NFL history.

old timer : 11/8/2010 11:27 am
The Boston Redskins had a 14:03 drive during the third game of the 1935 season against the Chicago Bears. Sammy Baugh ran for 56 yards and passed for 49, as the 'skins scored on their 23rd play of the drive.

That said, that 4th quarter drive by the Jints was like entering a time warp.

what is the longest drive without a pass play? That drive yesterday must be up there.
That was a thing of beauty.

I'm thinking they had a couple of penalties mixed in ...
That's a good question about no passes.

I'll try to dig that up.

when they became the washington redskins, I think?
That record is a farce.....

since Sammy Baugh didn't even play in the NFL until 1937 and the Redskins played the Bears in their 8th game of the season on Nov 10th.
