    I'd say yes.

    Ravens did it, but without Big Rapey.

    Note: Impressive, meaning the most quality win of any NFL team this season. Not the biggest upset, surprise, division importance, etc.

    No...Cleveland beating the Patriots ANYWHERE is a bigger win.

    No [insert the Win in the SuperDome] by [insert Cleveland] was more impressive.

    I still think of the Pats as an elite team and a win by them over another elite team should never be the most impressive win of any season. Saying such diminishes the Patriots.

    To me, a home win against the Patriots would not qualify as the most impressive win of the season.

    Also, the team who wins is irrelevant, that's why I said this wasn't for biggest upset/surprise. It based on opponent and setting alone.

    A worthy candidate, but considering the Saints have lost to the Cardinals and already lost at home (to Falcons) that makes it less impressive, to me. Right now I'd say...

    Ravens @ Jets
    Packers @ Jets
    Falcons @ Saints
    Browns @ Saints
    Titans @ Giants

    I find it amazing that you'd lecture people on the merits if Deanna Favre's self respect and marriage to Brett Favre and not 24 hours later throw mud at Ben Roethlisberger for something he was never found guilty of (despite whatever opinion people have on the issue). You really are something Pessimistic Pete.

    And no, it wouldn't be.

    OJ Simpson wasn't found guilty of murder, Barry Bonds hasn't been found guilty of using steriods yet...

    Everyone knows that he's a rapist, come on.

    And again, if you vote no, please specify.

    Unfortunately you miss the point or simply ignore your own contradiction Pete. Proving and speculating are two different things. It's becoming tiresome.

    The world is an amazing place. Stop making it a steaming pile of **** because you're not happy with it.

    Uh, no. If you had to choose between the two everyone would want the Steelers win instead.

    If we beat the Browns and lose to Steelers...

    -Lose the head-to-head tiebreaker with Steelers
    -Still be questioned if they can beat a great team on the road
    -Beat a horrible team

    If we lose to Browns and Beat Steelers...
    -Win head-to-head tiebreaker against Steelers
    -Be confident we can beat any team on the road
    -Beat a team considered the best in the NFL

    An injury depleted Green bay team shutting the jets out at NY was the most impressive game IMO

    I'd say that the Saints win against Pittsburgh was pretty damn impressive in it's own right. However, the Saints were playing the Steelers at home while we're playing them on the road.

    Re: Would Pats winning @ Pittsburgh be most impressive win by any NFL team this seaso

    I don't see how a 6-2 team beating another 6-2 team would be the most impressive win of the season.

    So would winning at Pittsburgh be impressive?
    Sure.

    Would it be the most impressive win of the 2010 season?
    It might not even make a list of the top ten games in that category.



    Week One: KC 21, San Diego 14
    At the time KC was seen as one of the worst teams in the league while San Diego was assumed to easily win the AFCW and be a Super Bowl contender.

    Week Two: Miami 14, Minnesota 10
    The Vikings were supposed to be Super Bowl bound. The loss dropped them to 0-2 and they never recovered.

    Week Three: Giants 17, Bears 14
    People were starting to believe in 3-0 Chicago; the Giants defense exposed them. Since then the Bears have only beaten Carolina and Buffalo.

    Week Five: Tampa Bay 24, Cincinnati 21
    After winning only three games last year, the Bucs win on the road and vault from doormat to contender.

    Week Six: Pats 23, Baltimore 20
    Revenge from last year's playoff game; pre-season rumors of the Pats demise put to rest.

    Week Seven: Green Bay 28, Minnesota 24
    After losing to Favre and the Vikings twice last year, the Packers get that monkey off their back with this win at home. Green Bay went from this game to shutout the Jets and demolish Dallas.

    Week Seven: Cleveland 30, New Orleans 17
    The Browns make a big statement with this win.

    Week Seven: Tennessee 37, Philadelphia 19
    Coming on the heels of a 30-3 win the Titans show they deserve to be considered among the NFL's elite.

    Week Seven: Oakland 59, Denver 14
    Unfortunately for the Pats, Oakland is turning the corner. The Raiders follow this game up with a 33-3 win over Seattle the next week.

    Week Eight: Jacksonville 35, Dallas 17
    Many predicted the Cowboys would get to the NFCCG or further this pre-season. If there was any doubt that would not happen, this game was the final nail in the Cowboy's 2010 coffin. Dallas gets demolished by Green Bay 45-7 the next game and Wade Philips is history.

    Week Nine: Cleveland 34, New England 14
    For anyone that thought the win over the Saints was a fluke.

    Nevermind...I took a couple hours between starting and finishing and jmt57 summed it up perfectly.

    @jmt, Nikolai

    I specified this was for the best/most quality win. Not for the best upset, season saving, etc. game.

    Again, the team that won is irrelevant. That only matters if we were talking about biggest upset/most important win. The answer to this question is strictly based on opponent and setting. I'm guessing you two didn't read that part as there is no way you feel wins against the Chargers, Chiefs, Bengals, Vikings, etc. are more quality wins than beating the Steelers at Pittsburgh.

    I've already explained this though, so I'll try again. Pretend you're a fan of another team other than the Patriots and I say

    "We beat Pittsburgh AT Pittsburgh, what was YOUR best win?"

    There is no way you could say "Well we beat the Chiefs!" "We beat the Bengals!" and expect to even be on the same level as the person who beat the Steelers @ Pittsburgh.

    yeah...everyone already KNOWS you are a transparent Jets troll from Gangrene...or did you forget the word for word post you put up here and THERE last month.

    No Patriot fan is going to "pretend" anything...THAT is what eaten alive by jealousy and envy and 42 years of horrific squalor do to a Rat fan....so pretend away...no one cares, unless it's your other undercover green buddies you convinced to log on here and create all these idiotic threads.
