Inept football that is low scoring is what we don't want to see. You know a bad game when you see it because at the half or end of the game, you are saying to yourself "That shit just set football back 50 years."
The one game that stands out to me was the NFC Championship Game between the Rams and Buccaneers I believe in 2000.
Final score was 11-6. But anyone who watched that game knew the reason why the score was such was because the Tampa defense was amazing, suffocating the legendary St. Louis offense that day. Tampa was not an offensive team, but even the Rams defense (who wasn't so great), had some good plays too.
The only TD for the Rams was on a crazy pass the receiver caught. Maybe Tampa gets the W at the end if the referees call that play a catch instead of incomplete, which brought back instant replay.
There was also a game between the Patriots and Steelers a few years before this in the Divisional Playoffs where the final was 7-6 for Pittsburgh. Both teams were heavyweights with a lot of talent on both sides. I was in grade school then, but that game also stuck out to me as tremendous.
| Yes the jags backup qb sucked but the Jags D actually played a great game against a team that had averaged 34 points per game the prior 6 weeks
Would have been even more dominating without some stupid penalties in the 2nd quarter.
Sorry this bored you though -- unlike some of these 38-35 games where guys roam free and anybody covered gets PI and spot foul
