NFL's biggest individual choke job

NFL's biggest individual choke job  

92 members have voted

  1. 1. Who had the biggest choke in NFL history? Realize that I'm only keeping it to players, and I'm only keeping it to particular plays (not careers, or entire games). I understand that people may have differing opinions of the term "choke". As guidance, I'm going to define "choke" as the player was overcome with emotion based on the magnitude of the situation which resulted in a mistake that they otherwise wouldn't make.

Voted for Romo, but I still have to throw Cody Parkey in as an honorable mention.

Less impactful when you see that his kick was tipped

Yea, there are two plays in the 2011 AFC Championship game that are bigger chokes than any play on this list.

Gary Anderson off this list. Perfect all year.

But Billy Cundiff and Lee Evans 🤬🥺

Except the one time we actually needed him. That is the definition of a choke job in my book.
