No 2-point conversion in the NFL?

The NFL had a two-point conversion then; the Bears went 1 for 2 on two point conversions in the game.

The only thing that comes to mind was that most of the Bears starters were replaced after halftime.

I heard somewhere that it was a revenge score for a previous game. The Redskins might have beaten the Bears 72-0 or 73-0 in one of the previous seasons.

I know the owner of the skins said they were whinners after they skins beat them during the season.

Three missed PATs and one failed 2-pt conversion. It should have been 78-0.

because in the later part of the game.. the offcials pleaded with the Kicker Geogre Halas not to kick extra points because they were running out of footballs that had been kicked through the uprights into the crowd

George Halas was the Chicago head coach.

No, should have been 77-0. That's not a two-point conversion... you had the option back then of kicking for 1 or running a play for 1. The two point conversion was not around until 1994.

This is the correct answer they ran out of footballs and teh Bears had to try and run the ball in from scrimmage
