I went to a Browns-Bengals game in Cleveland in 1990 and the wind chill was 30 below. They sometimes show that 1981 AFC Championship game on the NFL network. It was cold yet it was a sunny day. I remember at the time I was a student at Ohio St and I walked (I didn’t have a car) almost 3 miles to go to church. The morning was a rough walk to church. LOL
(It will be really cold and damp for that game this afternoon...brrrrr.)
Looks like it is once again possible for all Pennsylvania Super Bowl. It would only be fitting though since we produce the best quarterbacks the league has ever seen.

one forgotten game is the NFC divisional game in San Francisco when Roger Staubach led the Cowboys to two TD’s in the last two minutes of the game..one reason it is probably forgotten is that the Cowboys got whipped next week in Washington in the NFC title game..but it was quite a comeback..
Good job mainepatsfan!!!
I can tell you I was at that game in ‘87, sitting in the endzone opposite the dawg pound in old Municipal Stadium.
Of course everyone remembers how the game ended, but here’s some other tidbits to consider.......
The game should have never gone into overtime to begin with. We know Mark Mosley won the game with a FG, but in regulation time Mosley missed not 1, but 2 very short FG’s, the first one a 30 yarder and the second only slightly longer.
Mosley kicked a sort FG to send the game to OT. What set it up 2 plays earlier. with about a minute to go was a long completion from Bernie Kosar to Webster Slaughter inside the Jets 5. The Browns players then proceeded to celebrate burning 30 seconds of time, and forcing a incomplete pass on 1st down. Since the Browns had used all their timeouts on defense, Mosley had to kick the FG.
Mosley’s 2nd FG miss was in the 1st OT. And finally after watching Kosar throw for 487 yards, he kicked the game winning FG to end it!!!

Well, wearing the RED and where I’m from, my neck is already RED!!!
did you have to remind us northerners?
Remember the Eagles/Bears fog bowl in 1988? Was that a wildcard game or divisional? I forget.....
If you’re not a woman, please turn in your Man Card at the nearest TTM(Testosterone Transaction Machine). Teams don’t win Superbowls because you like their coach so much.
Your ability to do simple research is only exceeded by your ability to make an ass out of yourself. Congratulations.
“The Drive” in the Browns-Broncos game was the absolute best drive I have ever seen. I was in awe. And my team ended up losing that game.
One of my favorite divisional games was the "Mud Bowl", when the 49ers came to Green Bay back in 1997 and played in rainy but mild conditions that tore up Lambeau Field.
Yes, divisional games are when the greatest NFL games are played. I'm looking forward to today's and tomorrow's games, should be classics.
Reason #73 that women should make snacks while men watch and discuss football.
Sure they do.

“...since we produce the best quarterbacks the league has ever seen”
Yeah, you’ve had some great ones. Even though Terry Bradshaw acts so goofy as a comentator and takes himself so lightly, I remember that he lead a great team to four championships and I think he’s your #1.
