Today’s wire photo comes from the October 21, 1956 regular season matchup between the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Colts, played at Wrigley Field. Chicago romped in this one, 58-27, en route to a trip to the NFL Championship game in December.

On a side note, I sure do love those old double horseshoe Colts helmets.
