It's so weird watching games where all the receivers minus a select few wear numbers in the 80s, the QBs didn't always throw from shotgun, and the defenses could actually hit somebody.

Dude, football used to be so awesome back in the day. What happened???

It's a trade off. You watch games from the 80s or 70s it's kind of funny now seeing a lot of the unrefined athletes at the time. Or the footwork from the quarterbacks. And a lot of offenses look so simplistic running out of the same sets. Still, you do get a more intense product where defenses aren't shackled by officials. And sometimes it's cool to see stacked teams like the 79 Steelers or 85 Bears. I think the mid 90s to the mid 2000s is a good era.

This was such a good game to watch. Probably the best game that ended up in a tie. I like one comment that someone said: "The good old days when it's 3rd and 22, and you're in the I formation". Funny, funny.

Roger Stabauch's last drive as quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Pretty anti-climatic. Dallas gets the ball back in a 21-19 game against the Rams with just over two minutes to go. Unfortunately for Dallas, what follows is a pedestrian series ending with a turnover on downs. Maybe all of their emotion was spent the previous week when they won the division from Washington just to get into the playoffs. The Rams this year weren't even that great overall, and essentially backed into the playoffs with a 9-7 record as division champs of the NFC West.  Whatever the case, this is how the the career of Roger ends. Still was the best of his time.

A game with no punts back when defenses could dictate and still had bite:

 

 

 

Both QB's threw for over 400 yards, and this was in 1992 when 400 yard passing games were harder to attain.

The 2002 Falcons are best remembered for the Vikings OT game, the Steeler tie, and the playoff upset at Lambeau.

But they also were involved in this doozy of a game:

Shout out to the only team Tom Brady has a losing record against and the only stadium he has a losing record at.

Bailey fumbled that ball through the end zone. Should've been Patriots ball on the 20.

But he didnt.....and there was 0 evidence to prove otherwise. Pats fans just wanted it to be out of the enzone because Ben Watsons effort makes the play a even better story.

Speaking which, here are highlights between the Redskins and Cowboys the week before. Redskins choked the game away having a 34-21 lead, and just under 4 minutes to play. Cowboys got a John Riggins fumble, after he already fumbled his previous carry, and didn't lose it. Cowboys scored after three plays to make it 34-28. Redskins get the ball back with 2:20 to play, but ended up having to punt. Cowboys get the ball back with under two minutes, and score in seven plays. Cowboys get the lead 35-34 with about 30 seconds left. Washington has two timeouts remaining, but Joe Theisman is pressured relentlessly by the Cowboys defense on the final drive.  On third down Theisman rules out and throws across his body to his tightend near midfield. The pass is incomplete, but Dallas is flagged for interference. There are 9 seconds left. Redskins would only get to the Dallas 40 though. Time ran out. Redskins lose the division, and more importantly lose their chance to get to the playoffs. They go home with a 10-6 record. Dallas goes on to the playoffs, but loses next week at home to the Rams 21-19.

Montana vs. Moon in 1990! Classic gem with both quarterbacks at the height of their powers.

Bears at Rams in 1982 in week 16, which was the 8th game of the year due to the strike. This was Mike Ditka's first year along with rookie Jim McMahon. McMahon had a good game this day hitting 18/28 for 280 yards and 2 TDs/0 INTs. However Vince Ferrgamo, the Rams quarterback had a career day with 509 yards 3 TDs/2 INTs. The Rams outgained the Bears 583 yards to 421, but had 3 turnovers to the Bears 0. Ultimately it was too much to overcome, and the Rams lost 34-26.

This was a good game between the Rams and Bills in Buffalo during week 6 of the 1989 season. It was on a Monday night, and Frank Reich was filling in for an injured Jim Kelly. The Rams were 5-0 heading into the contest. The game was fairly close most of the evening, and there is a good amount of suspense in the final two minutes. Everrett and Reich played well for each of their squads, however both the Rams and Bills seemed to have trouble hanging on to the ball this night. Al Michaels, normally an announcer with Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf, was doing the World Series at this time of the year. So it's just the latter two by themselves.
