Even though I wasn't born the 1960 NFL championship should be mentioned. Chuck Bednarik didn't leave the field, played both ways and special teams. The image of him after the last tackle is probably the best image in Eagle history.

Do any other Eagle fans here remember the Bounty Bowl? Thanksgiving 1989 the Eagles sacked Troy Aikman 11 times and Buddy Ryan supposedly put a bounty on the Dallas kicker.
Not an Eagles fan, but I'm a Cowboys hater. I thought the bounty went back and forth for a while? But yeah I remember the game. I remember Aikman laying on the field with a towel soaking up blood from a hit he took to the chin. I kind of liked those Eagle teams. Then Buddy Ryan came to AZ and made me hate him.

I'm a Raider fan since 1974 and they have played in many memorable games, but none were as memorable as what happened in the Orange Bowl, Jan 2nd, 1982.

The Charger/Dolphins playoff game.

1st quarter all Chargers 24-0

2nd quarter all Phins including the famous hook and latter play with 6 seconds left in the 1/2 (24-17)

with the score tied 38-38 and under a minute to go in the 4th, the fish had the ball at there own 40, they made it to the Charger 26 with 4 seconds left on the clock, Uwe Von Schamann (Dolphin kicker) was brought on to end it with a 43 yarder, Kellen Winslow blocked the kick.

OT- The Chargers won the toss and marched down the field Rolf Benirschke was brought on for the game winning 27 yarder he missed it.

Miami then moved down the field and once again brought out Von Schamann for the 34 yard field goal and the win and it was blocked again.

The Chargers then took over on the own 10 marched 74 yards and Benirschke drilled a 24 yarder for the win.

It's my vote for the greatest game in NFL history.

I'd have to say the 1970 Super Bowl in which Minnesota Viking, Joe Kapp threw for 6 touchdowns against Kansas City. Thinking back, I believe that first Super Bowl victory paved the way for the subsequent three additional wins over the next seven years and history may not have been as kind to the Vikings without that first Super Bowl triumph. Sure the Vikes have won a few others since then but that initial run is something I won't soon forget.

Buddy Ryan was a hell of a coach. Not his fault Bidwell is a moron.

At least slightly. The Vikes were the Bills of the olden days at the Super Bowl. 23-7 Chiefs, as I seem to recall from my hours upon hours of slinging fries at Howdy Beefburger. A most memorable game for me even if I was working at the time - with the radio on. Waiter! Give me whatever Ghengis is having.

Man, I was a KC fan in those days. My best friend was siding with the Raiders and I was humbled twice by him/them during the regular season. But it all ended on a proverbial high note. Len Dawson for President!

Now Hubert Humphrey was a great President! Ironically enough, they named the Vikings current home after him for awhile.

Agreed. But George McGovern ended the war and started hootenannies on every street corner. He even played fiddle on a few Pete Seeger songs.

And now we (hopefully) return you to your regularly scheduled thread about great and memorable games. You're up Scout_972.
