Athlete: Dwayne Rudd
With 10 seconds remaining in the game, the Browns clung to a 39-37 lead in their 2002 season opener. After appearing to sack Cardinals quarterback Trent Green on the game's final play, Browns linebacker Dwayne Rudd threw off his helmet in celebration.
Two problems: One, Green was able to successfully lateral the ball before he was down. And two, ripping your helmet off is a personal foul. The ball was advanced to the 17-yard line after the penalty and the Cardinals knocked down a game winning field goal as time expired. More proof that God hates Cleveland.
