Today in Sports History: September 29

On September 29, 1985, Houston Oilers quarterback Warren Moon was sacked by the Dallas Cowboys’ defense an NFL record 12 times. Among those defenders who had 2 sacks for the Cowboys were John Dutton, Randy White, and Too Tall Jones. The legendary defensive performance still stands as the most times a single quarterback was sacked in a game and was matched only once—almost exactly 22 years later on September 30, 2007, when Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles was sacked 12 times by the New York Giants defense.
