Greg Koch Remembers 1983 Packers-Redskins Thriller
The Green Bay Packers didn’t have a lot of memorable games in the 1980s, but in the early part of the decade they possessed one of the most high-powered offenses in the NFL. On Oct. 17, 1983, they met the equally high-powered Washington Redskins.
The result was the highest-scoring game in Monday Night Football history, a 48-47 Packers victory against the defending Super Bowl champs. Packers Hall of Fame tackle Greg Koch calls that game the most memorable he’s played in and also talks about trash talking Redskins defensive tackle Dave Butz.
