49ers Vs Packers, Wildcard game, 1999 at the Stick.

With 8 secs left and 49ers needing a TD. Young threw a perfect pass to T.O for a TD and he took a very hard hit from the 3 defenders!

Since you bring up Stabler and the two minute drill, no other game of his, in my opinion, was as famous as the "Sea of Hands" game with Clarence Davis. The Miami Dolphins were the first serious three-peat SB contenders, and from what I understand, that was one of the all-time NFL classics. I have seen plenty of video of that game and people like John Madden talk about it on NFL Films, but that was slightly before my time, and I did not watch it live. However, this is one game that makes me wish I was born a few years earlier. From every indication, it just seemed like for anyone who witnessed it, one of the top 2 or 3 games in NFL history.



YouTube - Sea of Hands

Ken Stabler was at the epicenter of dramatic 1970s football. It's a shame he's not in the Hall of Fame. Put it this way: if Joe Namath is in the Hall of Fame, then so too should Kenny Stabler be.

Eli Manning throwing a prayer and winning the superbowl over the NE pats. Worst game of my life but most memorable.

That game between Oakland and Miami was one of the best games in NFL history. Both clubs went back and forth, back and forth. Kenny Stabler was excellent in the two minute drill, as I stated in an earlier post. He made some great passes in that last drive. And the touchdown pass to Clarence Davis? Davis must have had four people around him when he snagged the pass, and Stabler just did get it off while Miami defensive end Vern Den Herder was draped all over him. Two things I remember from the tv booth. That year Don Meredith switched over from ABC Monday Night Football and was in the booth yelling "He caught it, he caught it, he caught it"! I also remember Curt Gowdy saying, "This is one of the greatest games I've ever seen!"

It was!

That 2005-06 playoff game between the Colts and Steelers ranks up there as that was probably the most unpredictable/wildest sporting event I've ever seen. I was happy for Bill Cowher.

Also:
SB 26: Probably the first NFL game I ever watched, and living in Durham, NC at the time, it was pretty much a big deal since most of that area were Redskins fans

The 3 Cowboys SB wins in the 90's. A lot of Cowboy fans live/lived here too.

The Buffalo-Houston 93 game, I didn't know until NFL classics showed it later on that the Oilers blew such a large lead. Being only 4 at the time, I couldn't comprehend everything other than the Bills won.

SB 34: Maybe the best SB game ever. Big Torry Holt fan so that was a + for me that the Rams won.

SB 38, exciting times in Charlotte NC leading up to this game.

SB 42, exciting game

One of the best games..Ive ever seen was San Diego-Miami playoff game in '81...Chargers won 41-38..Don Strock comes off the bench to throw for 400 yds..in only 3 qtrs...after Chargers go up 24-0.in 1st qtr.....Dolphins take it to OT...could have won the game but Kellen Winslow blocked a FG...caught 13 passes..that game alone sent him to Hall.. Miamis hook and lateral play..to Tony Nathan...one of the best plays in NFL history....

That so called bounty bowl game.in '89. Eagles were heavily favored against a horrid Cowboys team in a game that meant nothing...in the game that meant something for the Eagles that year...LA Rams beat them 21-7 at PHILLY..in the playoffs.. I recall Cowboys 34, Eagles 10 in '92 playoffs...Cowboys 30, Eagles 10 in '95 playoffs...and..Cowboys 34, Eagles 7 last year..

That most memorable game has yet to be played, however it should occur this year when the NY Jets, led by Sanchez, take the Super Bowl.....
