Muncie Flyers | An Original NFL Team

The first official NFL games were played on October 3, 1920. Historians believe the first NFL game ever was between the Dayton Triangles and the Columbus Panhandles. However, some believe it's possible a game between the Rock Island Independents, and this week's team the Muncie Flyers, could have been the first game. No matter which game was first, I'm sure the Muncie Flyers would like to forget the game because they lost 45 - 0 in their first-ever game. This episode chronicles the beginnings of the team. So strap on your seat belt, and let's get this baby up to 88MPH.
