my least memorable game was actually a Vikings playoff win and attended in person. It was in Dec 1976, the NFC Title game vs the Rams at Met Stadium in 14 degree weather under sunny skies. I do remember it being cold and there was beer and hot buttered rum and I'm certain of other liquor being involved, tho my memory is quite fuzzy towards those specifics. Forty years later, I can still taste the hot buttered rum when I burp and it's below 20 degrees outside, so I'm quite certain of that part.

I only recall one play, a first quarter blocked field goal returned for a TD and really nothing after that with the exception of a distinct recollection of being on my hands and knees in the end zone eating purple grass like a cow. I presume this occurred after the game as I have no arrest record for an incident such as this on file and would presume this would have resulted if I did this during the game.

I have quite a few but if I had to pick just one sadly it would be my 85 Bears only lost to the Miami Dolphins.

Honorable mentions

2006 Bears vs Cardinals= the game that gave birth to the infamous now famous Dennis Green Rant! THE BEARS ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!!

2007 Patriots Losing to the Giants. The Helmet catch

2015 Superbowl Patriots vs Seahawks= Who could ever forget the dumbest play call in Superbowl history.

Bret Farve game against the Raiders shortly after the passing of his father.

I liked the call Mike Keith, Titans radio announcer made. It brings a lot of enthusiasm to Titan fans even though I am more of a Packers and Browns fan.

Of course, the centerpiece of this game will be the Flacco to Jacoby Jones touchdown. According to advancedNFLstats.com, at the time of this touchdown, the Ravens had less than a 1% chance of winning the game. In a historical context, in considering memorable NFL playoff moments, this play was in line with Staubach to Pearson in 1975. The storyline of Manning vs Lewis in this game, with Lewis perhaps in his last game, and how Peyton Manning looked expression-wise as the game began to descend into overtime, all these elements will be with me for many years to come. While I cannot definitively state this is my all time most memorable NFL game, because I have seen so many, it certainly made its way into my top dozen or so.
I remember that game. It was a shockerrand Ravens defense picked off Peyton Manning and I don't know who did and the Ravens would go on and win the Super Bowl and Jacoby Jones went 70 yards in the AFC Championship Game in 2012 on Joe Flacco's 70 yard TD pass.

And speaking of Super Bowls this past Super Bowl was a really good game and the defense really stepped up for Denver. It was such an incredible finish for Peyton Manning and John Elway is the only other quarterback in Broncos history to finish a career with a Super Bowl win thought I was way too young to remember that Super Bowl but I still remember Super Bowl 45 Packers Steelers and the Packers won their first Super Bowl since 1997 when they defeated the Patriots.

I'm bringing this thread up to date as there are some new members who have recently posted who might not be aware of this thread.

Probably Thanksgiving 1993, Miami at Dallas -- also known as The Adventures of Leon Lett Part II

I was watching at my (future) in-law's house in Minnesota. At halftime, my (future) wife and I left to give her younger sister a ride home, a 90-minute round-trip. We got back just in time to watch the final minute of the game. For context, the Cowboys are particularly reviled in Minnesota (and have been ever since December 28, 1975) and at the time I was a Dolphins fan.

So what a profoundly satisfying final minute it was ...

SB L, still gloating over that. SB XXXII was nice. Elway vs Montana playing for the Chiefs games back at Mile High were pretty good, as I saw Elway win one late and Montana win one late.

2012, just came back from Okinawa and my wife surprised me with tickets to a Vikings game. Was actually my first NFL game I went to. They were playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars which is my wives team and Adrian Peterson broke the Vikings rushing record.
