Jerry's Fumble

Game: 1999 NFC Wild Card Game
Match-up:
Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers

The lasting image of the '99 NFC Wild Card Game is Terrell Owens crying like a douche after catching the game-winning touchdown. But were it not for a blown call, Owens would have never had the opportunity to bask in self-aggrandizing tears after the 49ers win. In Jerry Rice's last game as a 49er, the receiver fumbled in the open field on the game's final drive. The game's referees mistakenly called him down by contact even though the ball was clearly loose beforehand, giving Steve Young the opportunity to find Owens between safeties moments later.
