The Washington Redskins have struggled in recent years but their fan base remains among the NFL’s strongest. They broke the record for single-season attendance nine years in a row and, according to Forbes magazine, are the second most valuable team in the NFL, behind the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins have won two NFL championships (1937 and 1942) and you can find Redskins Super Bowl rings from 1982, 1987 and 1991).
The Redskins’ 1982 season was shortened due to a 57-day players strike which reduced the season to a nine game schedule. That didn’t stop the Skins from winning Super Bowl XVII. They went 8-1 for the regular season then defeated Detroit, Minnesota and Dallas before making it to the season finale opposite the Miami Dolphins. Washington would win 27-17 and record their first Super Bowl era championship.
Washington returned four years later in 1987 to yet another player’s strike that shortened the season to 15 games. They would post an 11-4 season record and went on to Super Bowl XXII, defeating the Denver Broncos 42-10.
The 1991 Redskins posted a 14-2 record and dominated the Falcons and the Lions in the playoffs (combined score of 64-17) before appearing in Super Bowl XXVI. They beat the Buffalo Bills 37-24 to earn their third Super Bowl ring.
