Game: Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns
Referee(s): Terry McAulay
Why is it always poor Cleveland on the receiving end of agonizing moments on the football field? For a city that's had to endure The Fumble, The Drive, Red Right 88, and many others, this is just adding insult to injury. Late in the fourth quarter and trailing 15-10 at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Browns' Quincy Morgan had made a clutch grab on 4th and 1 to give his team a first down. Following a spike by quarterback Tim Couch, Cleveland huddled up to try to get into the end zone and win the game. But referee Terry McAulay inexplicably decided to ignore the rules and review Morgan's catch from two plays prior.
After he found that the pass was incomplete, Browns fans began hurling bottles onto the field in a show of utter dismay, pelting officials and prompting McAulay to end the game right then and there. They actually had to finish half an hour later, and were met with even more trash from the still-frothing fans.
