Boyd’s 1997 NFL Replay – Game 61 – Jacksonville at Washington

Skins’ Dishman breaks the game open!

Redskins’ defensive back Chris Dishman thwarted a Jaguar come-back in front of a ruckus crowd at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium on Sunday. The Jaguars closed the gap to 16-10 when Mark Brunell connected with Keenan McCardell late in the third quarter on a scoring strike. The Jaguars had the momentum, and their defense stuffed the Redskins on the Washington next possession. Brunell connected with Jimmy Smith on a 23-yd pass and seemed as if the Jaguars were going to take the game over. BUT Dishman stepped in front of a Brunell pass on the next play and picked the ball off. He weaved through Jaguar tacklers and raced 49-yards for the TD. The Redskins took a 23-10 lead and never looked back. The Skins are now 3-1 on the season, while the Jaguars, who were in the AFC Championship game a year ago, have stumbled out of the blocks going 1-3.
