So as part of Friday’s PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, we asked a simple question based on the news that the NFL will be making classic games available via YouTube: Which one would you watch, start to finish?
The answers made it clear that there are plenty of great games fans would like to see. So with each team having three of its most memorable games posted to YouTube before the start of the 2016 season, here are some to consider, based on fan responses to a PFT question on Twitter.
The game that came up most often was the 1981 playoff epic between the Chargers and Dolphins, which San Diego won in overtime, 41-38.
Then there’s the Oilers-Bills game-for-the-ages from the 1992 postseason, which Buffalo won in overtime — by the same score of 41-38.
Or how about the playoff game from seven years later between the same two franchises (one had moved to Tennessee), with the Oilers-turned-Titans winning 22-16 thanks to Frank Wycheck’s lateral (or not) to Kevin Dyson?
Or maybe “The Catch” (from the same playoff season as the Chargers-Dolphins game) or “The Sea of Hands” or “The Immaculate Reception” or “The Tuck Rule” or any of the various non-boring Super Bowls from years gone by.
Fans of every team will have their favorites (or otherwise, since the losses are sometimes even more memorable). Feel free to list some that you’d like to see in the comments.
