    A few of mine.... first from other teams.

    First, whether you like the 9ers or not, this was one of the best playoff games I can remember. The ending play just gave me chills.

    Second, this play..... unbelievable to this day. Luckiest play I've ever seen.

    Third, if Blount can bring this kind of punch to our ground game, that would be fantastic.

    For Patriots plays...

    I think this play against the Steelers in 07 has been forgotton..... but it's a great play.

    Another good play was this one. Having both of your first round picks make a big play ON the same play IN their first game. You don't see that often.

    Troy Brown's punt return vs the Eagles in the in the 2004 SB.

    Those all come to mind.

    I can't believe I forgot the Vince INT! I actually remember watching that Flea Flicker vs the Steelers. Ah, good times.

    I just remembered an additional play that think is pretty cool.

    Rewatching it, it doesn't look quite so impressive now and it certainly isn't a headline grabbing play but at the time, Vince Wilfork putting Matt Birk on skates just screamed "man amongst boys":

    It was a sit up in your seat and just say "wow!" moment.

    Any of the SB FGs.

    In general I'd say the goal line fade is the most fun to watch.

    3 Patriots related plays/instances

    1. That Kyle Love hit on the INT return that knocked the opposing player's mouthpiece about 25 feet in the air. I still can't believe it when I see the replay. I've never seen someone's mouthpiece fly that far up into the air before in any football game I've ever watched.

    2. The Ty Law 3 INT performance in the AFCCG vs IND.

    3. Dan Connelly KO return in the MNF game.


    3 non-Patriots related plays/instances

    1. Dan Marino's fake spike for a TD pass...will always remember that one.

    2. The great upset MNF game where MIA beat CHI in the 1985 season, giving them their only loss on the season.

    3. The SEA/GB replacement official game on MNF from last season. Being an avid sportsbettor (for entertainment purposes only..it's a family site), I have seen many strange instances over my lifetime; many regarding the outcome of a wager. I can honestly say that I don't remember as much sheer shock or controversy over any instance, and that's including professional boxing etc. My sportsbook actually refunded a portion of the losing bet due to having so much outcry. I still can't believe they called it the way they did.

    It's a no brainer. There's not a close second. It's head and shoulders above the rest for me.

    The TROY BROWN STRIP

    Brady had just thrown the season away on a 4th down desperation pass and was picked off. The season was OVER. The Chargers had dodged a bullet. Ya gotta remember how freaking stocked that team was. Overwhelming favorites to win it all. The 06 Chargers were a juggernaut.
    During the broadcast, even Phil Simms remarked,"The Chargers are just bigger, faster, and stronger than The Patriots."
    Well, he forgot one thing. That being football brains.

    Enter Troy Brown.

    That was the sickest play I'd ever seen. I mean, it came out of absolutely nowhere.

    Then all hell broke loose on San Diego. Rechee Caldwell has the game of his life, Kevin Faulk takes the loaf as Brady pirouettes on the 2 point conversion, and by the time all is said and done, Ladanian is getting pushed around like a freaking pinball by Rodney Harrison and his band of goons.

    Oh baby. NOTHING comes close for me. That will forever be my football orgasm.

    Another I loved was the statue of liberty against the Jags. I think its because I had no clue what was going on at the time is why I love it so much.

    Not quite my favorites but always memorable the Flutie drop kick and Ben Watsons run down on Champ Bailey's interception. I still think he punched the ball out through the endzone and it should have been a saftey.

    I'll second the Brady to Brown 80+ yard TD pass in OT against the Dolphins. That's got to be the most excited I've been for a non-playoff game. Even Belichick himself couldn't help but show emotion after that game.

    Not only was the play itself great, but it was the culmination of a lot of things......

    1.) Years of losing in the Miami heat
    2.) Years of finishing behind the Dolphins
    3.) Two VERY makeable, "would be game winning" field goal attempts gone awry byt the Dolphins

    From a pure "I can't believe what I just saw perspective" it has to be the two long bomb TD's Moss caught in Miami in 2007. Simply unbelievable.

    Does anyone remember that throw downfield Cam Newton made across his body while falling out of bounds at Auburn? I'm looking for the video but I don't remember who the other team was.

    Yes!! I forgot about Moss's 2 TDs in that Miami game! It was the peak of the 07 where It looked like Brady just wasn't even trying.

    Well, a touchback and NE ball, not a safety.

    But other than that, you're correct. We were screwed by moron Triplette. (Who fans of virtual all NFL teams think is one of the worst refs in the league).

    The TD sweep in the 1985 playoffs against the Raiders where Hannah executes a wonderful dive block on the run to take out the laterally-pursuing defender

    Even though I didn't like him, props to Tony Eason's hail mary game winner vs. the Rams in 1986.

    Posey's game-winning FG in 1978 against Buffalo in Week 15 to give NE their first AFCE crown (even better was that I was at that game). Especially since (as I recall it) Buffalo had taken an intentional safety on a punt play (they were backed way up), but either the free kick was bad or NE got a good return (can't remember which) and NE had good field position to start the game-winning drive.

    Grogan's 30yd TD to Morgan to win the game and finally break the (regular season) Orange Bowl jinx in the final week of 1986 (I believe, better yet, that was the last Phins game ever played in the Orange Bowl).

    Yes and even though that team overcame so much adversity that season, that win was probably the toughest and the one I least expected them to pull off. As you said they NEVER used to win in MIA especially in the warmer months. Then the huge botches by the refs that gave MIA great chances to score first in OT, in addition to those chip shot FG's they missed. Just made for an incredible moment at the end.

    I'll go back a bit since most of these are modern.

    Believe it or not Tony Eason threw a last season TD to beat the Rams in LA when they had a pretty good team. Fryer caught it in the back of the end zone. That was huge for their SB push.

    The snow plow kick. Shula is still whining. :singing:

    Even though it was against the Pats the Barry Sanders run.

    The catch by Dwight Clark. I hated the Landry Cowboys.

    Bo Jackson running over Bosworth.

    Pre-modern era (aka Patriots in red):
    Grogan trying to call timeout despite his concussion.
    1976 Divisional Grogan to Francis non-interference call.
    Snow plow - best part not shown Shula trying to get the ref to put the snow back was awesome.
    Oh, the rest involve Zeke Mowatt and Linda Olsen and are NSFW.

    And yes, this from the Victory! tour, is a Patriots highlight
    (For newbies, it drove the Sullivans, the origional owners, into bankruptcy. Allowing Bob Kraft to buy ... the stadium.:))

    And before that the book on Brady was he lacked the ability to throw long. Heck, even homer me was wondering how the heck he was able to throw that far.:)
