The 42nd greatest quarterback-wide receiver duo in NFL history: Sammy Baugh & Hugh Taylor

Unfortunately for the Washington Redskins, now known as the Washington Football Team, the pairing of quarterback Sammy Baugh and Hugh Taylor didn’t result in Super Bowls or even a ton of regular season success.

Essentially, the two hooked up at the tail end of their respective careers. Still, they had enough in the tank to put up some pretty good numbers as a duo. Baugh led the league in passing yards two of their six seasons together and led the entire NFL in completion percentage three times.

Taylor was pretty prolific in his own right. He registered at least 700 receiving yards on three separate occasions with Baugh by his side. In total, the pair connected on 42 touchdowns. Not exactly a flashy number, considering the number of years they played with one another but in their day, they were one of the best in the league.
