1984 1986

The 1985 Washington Redskins began the season with the team trying to improve on their 11-5 record from 1984. The biggest moment of the year occurred on a November 18 Monday Night Football game, which witnessed Joe Theismann's career-ending injury after a sack by New York Giants outside linebacker Lawrence Taylor. The tackle resulted in a serious leg injury, and Theismann never played in the NFL again.
