Best Answer

The Boston Redskins had a 14:03 drive during the third game of the 1935 season against the Chicago Bears. Sammy Baugh ran for 56 yards and passed for 49, as the 'skins scored on their 23rd play of the drive. As a result of this drive, and the eventual loss of the game 33-17, Hall of Fame coach George Halas of the Bears, instituted the first three man linebacker formation in the NFL. Not only was this the birth of the legendary "Monsters of the Midway", it began a long tradition of hard-hitting, middle linebackers for the Bears.
