The Best Weekend of the Best Weekend

Fred Ex's 4th and 26 conversion capped off a wild 2003 Divisional Playoff round

The best weekend of the NFL season every year is the Divisional Round of the playoffs.  The Conference Championship only gives us two games while the Super Bowl itself is only one.  We get four games Wild Card weekend but the four best teams in the league aren’t around.  This leaves the divisional round as […]

A Monday Night Boston Didn’t See

The year was 2003 and I’d be willing to bet the farm that none of you actually watched this game unfold.  On October 6th, a Monday night, the Indianapolis Colts played the defending Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Colts found themselves trailing 35-14 with 4:00 minutes remaining.  That’s when one of the most […]

I apologize that the highlight of the week requires you have to watch six parts but too damn bad. The year was 1996 and the 10-5 New England Patriots needed a win against the sorry 6-9 New York Giants to assure a first round bye in the playoffs.  This game also pitted Bill Parcells against […]

Bo Jackson is sick both in Tecmo and Real Life

Bo Jackson running all over the Seahawks

This is Bo Jackson’s famous game against the Seattle Seahawks in 1987 where he turbos down the sidelines untouched.  Jackson finished with 221 yards on 18 carries and 2 touchdowns. He added another score on a pass from 14 yards out. This is the box score from the game: http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/198711300sea.htm
