Eagles Win Championship in Blinding Snow December 19, 1948


A foot of snow fell. Hall of fame running back Steve Van Buren couldn’t get his car out of the garage. “I had to catch three trolleys and walk about six blocks to the stadium,” he said. He did manage to get to Shibe Park (Later known as Connie Mack Stadium) in time to score the one and only touchdown of the game. That’s all the Eagles needed to beat the Chicago Cardinals (later the St. Louis Cardinals and now Arizona) for the Eagles first NFL championship.

A year later in Los Angeles, the Eagles trudged through the mud in a heavy rain and repeated as NFL Champions.
