First NFL Game Ever | Columbus Panhandles at Dayton Triangles

When was the first NFL game ever played?  The date was October 3, 1920, in Dayton, OH at Triangle Park.  It was a game that saw the Columbus Panhandles roll into Dayton to face the Dayton Triangles.  This was a game the Triangles won 14-0, and you can learn more about the first ever NFL game from last week’s episode, mostly covering the Dayton Triangles.  This week we cover the Columbus Panhandles and the famous Nesser Brothers that made it all possible.
