1937 NFL Championship

I think I recall people stating in this forum that sometimes old newspapers actually had play by plays of games. Does anyone know if any had a play by play of the 1937 Washington-Chicago NFL Championship. I know it is a long shot but thought I'd ask.

I wouldn't be surprised if one or more of the Washington papers (Post, Star, Times-Herald, etc.) printed a play-by-play. At least a couple of them did after the Redskins won in 1942.

This didn't come from a newspaper, but I do have a play-by-play of the 1937 game; I'm pretty sure I found it at the Hall of Fame. So, assuming you're just interested in the play-by-play and don't care about the source, I think I can e-mail it to you by using a scanner they have at the local library. Or if you're just looking for some particular detail, let me know and I'll check on it for you.

No, I do not care about the source but I wouldn't want you to have to go to the library on my account. I can try and see if the Washington Post has it online. Thanks.
