1925: GRANGE MAKES NFL DEBUT
In a 0-0 tie between the Chicago Bears and cross-town rival Cardinals, the biggest bright spot was Harold "Red" Grange making his NFL debut. Just days after ending his collegiate career, Grange suited up for the Bears and totaled 92 yards from scrimmage, 56 yards on punt returns, threw six passes and even had an interception.
