  • 1966 NFL "Games of the Week" - (Weeks 2, 3 and 15), featuring the St. Louis Cardinals vs the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Browns - In week 2 of the ’66 season, the Cardinals host new head coach Otto Graham’s Redskins in rainy St. Louis and win handily, 23-7. Cards are now 2-0 on the young season and head to Cleveland the following week to face the defending Eastern Champions. It’s a lively back and forth game with a Roy Shivers 94-yd KO return, three TD’s by Leroy Kelly and a 57-yd TD run by Jackie Smith highlighting the 34-28 Redbird win. By the final week of the season Charley Johnson has been knocked out of action and Terry Nofsinger is at QB for St. Louis as Redbirds host Browns in the season re-match. Cards mount 10-0 lead in first qtr, but never score again, as two long TD passes (Ryan to Collins), Groza FG and TD’s by Kelly, Ernie Green and Clifton McNeil end scoring but not the action! Walter Roberts and Cards DB Bobby Williams are both ejected for fighting and a few disgruntled fans standing on the top of the dugout and throwing objects are led away by police. A 5-0 start to the season by the Cardinals ends with a disheartening 8-5-1 record, as Redbirds lose four of their last five games of the season.
