    While playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the St. Louis Rams in the 1999 NFC Championship Game, Emanuel made a thirteen yard reception at the Rams' 22 yard line with 47 seconds remaining in the game, which would have given Tampa Bay a realistic chance to continue a potential game-winning drive. The ruling on the field initially was a complete pass. Despite the fact that Emanuel clearly controlled the ball at every point during the catch, booth replay official Jerry Markbreit ordered a review of the call. Referee Bill Carollo determined that the nose of the ball had touched the ground as he brought it into his body. The catch was overturned, and Tampa Bay went on to lose the game, 11-6.:stirpot::hang::hdrool::trophy:

    ???


    How is this possible with the Colts in the AFC and the Bucs in the NFC?


    Or is this just another example of you not knowing what the **** you are talking about?

    There was the Colts vs Bucs game in Week 1 some years ago where the Colts game back from a couple of Touchdowns.

    That was the Vanderjact illegal onside kick game on MNF. I remember that. It was the biggest comeback in the shortest amount of time ever...
