1997 AFC Championship game - Jacksonville vs. New England. The first time the Pats did anything really big in my life. I was too young to really know what was going on back in 1986 when they went to the Super Bowl.

That whole playoff run was great. They beat the Steelers the round before in terrible fog. Then when Jacksonville went into Denver and got that massive win, it set up the title game at the old Foxboro Stadium.

I was disappointed they fell short of the SB that year. I wanted to see two expansions teams in the SB but both of them ended up losing in the Championship game which was the Packers beating the Panthers and the Pats beating the Jags

1975 (or maybe 76) Baltimore Colts-Pittsburgh Steelers playoff game in Baltimore. Outside Memorial Stadium a Steeler fan is in line in front of me dragging a quarter barrel of Iron City beer. I can't believe he's even trying to get it inside. He gets held up by security. I pass him. 20 minutes later he's coming down the aisle in the next section over, with the keg. He said they let him go when he showed them a ticket for himself and one for the keg. He sat down with his buddies, and proceeded to tap beers for any and all. Try to top that.

Colts fans thought we might be able to beat Bradshaw, Swann, Stallworth, Iron Curtain, etc. After all we had Bert Jones. We kicked the first score, a field goal, to lead 3-0. It was all downhill from then on. Bradshaw picked us apart and we lost 35-3.

Just as we were getting ready to leave, and talking about the beer keg being the damndest thing we ever saw in a stadium, a small plane flies the length of the field and belly flops in the upper deck of Memorial Stadium. Wasn't that much of a football game, but certainly a day I'll never forget.

That's my new entry, although I wasn't there. Don't think I could've handled the cold either. I was in my 2nd day with the flu at the time.

My favorite NFL game was the 1992 NFC Championship Game, when 'tomorrow's team' arrived a year early and beat the 49ers in a meaningful game for the first time in over a decade. The 49ers were probably the better team that year and could have easily won that game except for a play or two that went the other direction. However, the Cowboys came of age and took advantage of opportunities and some uncharacteristic miscues by the 49ers. Now in 1993, the Cowboys were clearly the superior team, but they weren't in '92, which is why that game stands out.

Being the objective NFL fan, I'd have to say there are a few games that come to mind and none of them involve the Cowboys, unfortunately. Gotta start with the Super Bowls, and in my mind, the most classic of all of them has to be Eli Manning's unbelievable drive to beat the Pats in SB 42. Pats over the Rams was pretty good, too.

1998 NFC Championship...

Atlanta (14-2) @ Minnesota (15-1)

Nobody outside of Atlanta thought the Falcons had a chance to beat the Vikings in Minnesota. I still remember the call...

"Anderson lines up for the kick to put the game out of reach... he hasn't missed all season."

Atlanta 30, Minnesota 27 (OT)

This game was ranked by Fox Sports as the 3rd most exciting NFC title game ever.

49ers at eagles on Sept 21, 1989


Joe Montana showed me in this game why he was the greatest QB all of time. His niners trailed 28-10 in the 3rd qtr while he ran for his life from the eagles defense and constantly got sacked. It was looking like the eagles would win in a rout but something happened and the niners all of a sudden start making a comeback, 28-17, 28-24, and then took the lead 31-28 and Joe ended up with 4 TD passes that day as they won 38-28. They scored 28 unanswered pts in one half and I remember the philly media being in complete shock.


One of the greatest NFL games of my teen years
