An interesting game comes after this pre-game show, with this being the last playoff game for George Allen, not only as head coach of the Redskins, but also in the NFL as well as against the Minnesota Vikings, and of course they lost it. Otherwise Coach Allen would have coached the Redskins the following week. 1976 was also the last Super Bowl appearance and NFC Championship for the Vikings and also their fourth, so 1976 was an important year for both the Redskins and the Vikings.
