Sports have ceased on account of this coronavirus pandemic, and sports lovers everywhere are searching for everything to do with the time spent watching matches each evening. NFL Game Pass, which normally comes at a price, is currently free for all. Because most everybody is stuck inside their home for the near future, we could appreciate some of the most significant matches in league history through all this newly-minted downtime.
When delegated this informative article, my initial idea as a Bostonian was going to include six special Super Bowls (perhaps you have seen them), together with the AFC Championship matches to coincide. Before enthusiasts of the other 31 teams quit studying, I held back and did not do this. You are welcome.
With this free access, the NFL declared that fans will have the ability to rewatch matches from 2009-2019, such as complete broadcast replays and condensed 45-minute versions.
If you do not feel like hauling back into the most stressful minutes as you saw your staff attempt to earn a tournament run, or you can not as your staff simply has not created it, there are lots of other iconic matches it is possible to re-live.
With so many fantastic ones to select from, it was difficult to narrow them down, and thus don’t talk angrily stating your favourite group or match did not make it. Or do, I am stuck in my home with nothing better to do than examine Twitter anyway.
Super Bowl LI:
Remember when I said I wasn’t going to only pick Patriots games, well that doesn’t mean I wasn’t going to select any. Can you blame me though, . If you’re looking for the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time, or unbelievable catches or an unlikely finish, look no further. If you are a New England fan looking to watch happier days when Tom Brady was still your quarterback, this is one of the happiest days to look back on. The other five New England Super Bowl wins are honorable mentions.
For those who don’t have an immediate reaction just reading the matchup, this is the. This game lives in infamy so unless you’re a Dallas fan, it’s wild to rewatch what happened and be reminded of what could have been. The question of what is a catch is still up in the air, so to speak, in the NFL, and this was a pinnacle moment in that debate. The Green Bay Packers went on to defeat the Cowboys 26-21.
Cowboys vs. Broncos, 2013:
If points are something you like, boy are you going to love this one. This back-and-forth, down to the wire, Peyton Manning and Tony Romo is exceptional, with almost 900 passing yards between the two QBs. It ended with a Matt Prater game-winning field goal as time expired (what’s more exciting than that), giving the Broncos a 51-48 win.between
I’m going to stick with this high-scoring trend and bring up a more recent example of explosive offenses. Both teams were Super Bowl favorites heading into this matchup and neither disappointed. Would-be MVP Patrick Mahomes put up just under 500 passing yards and Rams QB Jared Goff came in with just over 400. ended with a 54-51 Rams victory.
Super Bowl XLVI:
Told ya I could be unbiased. This Super Bowl rematch between the Patriots and New York Giants was New England’s chance to get revenge. It was not that long beforehand that the Giants ruined the Patriots undefeated season with a Super Bowl win. Rather than revenge, the Giants stepped up once again and secured their second championship in six years. Eli Manning outplayed Tom Brady and took home the MVP trophy.
Packers vs. Cardinals 2015 NFC Divisional Game:
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems to have perfected the Hail Mary, and any list of iconic games would be missing something without one of these games. The 61-yard throw is listed as 10/10 difficulty and “total drama score” on NFL.com. Down seven with time expiring, Rodgers chucked it in the air in a near-impossible manner, finding Jeff Janis in the end zone. The pass sent the game to overtime, though the Cardinals eventually got the W.
Any game that can be identified with a nickname including ‘miracle’ deserves to be on some list somewhere. The New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings met in the , With mere seconds left in the game, down by one and back at their own 39-yard-line, Case Keenum connected with Stefon Diggs for an incredible play to win the game that is cemented in Vikings history.
Miracle at the New Meadowlands:
Hey would you look at that, another game with ‘miracle’ in the title. The Philadelphia Eagles trailed the New York Giants by 21 points at two different points in the game, including a 31-10 deficit in the third quarter. Between an electric comeback, a successful onside kick and finally a muffed punt turned 65-yard touchdown return by DeSean Jackson as the clock hit zero, the game lives on in the annals of NFL history as one of the all-time great finishes.
Steelers vs. Cowboys 2016
In the mood for a Steelers fake spike with less than a minute left to lead by one, a failed 2-point conversion turned into a Cowboys interception, some key penalties, an Ezekiel Elliot touchdown run to regain the lead, another failed 2-point conversion and a last-minute failed attempt by Antonio Brown ? No? … THEN DO I HAVE THE GAME FOR YOU.
Pass Interference No-Call:
Care to watch a game that possibly sent the wrong team to Super Bowl (relax Rams fans, I said possibly), includes one of the worst calls in league history and changed the future of the NFL? Then turn on the. Unless you’re a Saints fan, because life is hard enough — particularly after the Minnesota Miracle — and you don’t need to add more pain to it.
Other honorable mentions: Marshawn Lynch Beast Quake game, Replacement Refs game, Odell Beckham Jr.’s iconic catch game, Super Bowl XLVII (Ravens vs. 49ers) and Super Bowl LII (Eagles vs. Patriots).
