Game: Oakland Raiders @ New England Patriots
Referee(s): Walt Coleman
Would the Patriots' mid-2000s dynasty ever have happened if not for Walt Coleman and the strange tuck rule during this 2002 Divisional AFC playoff game? It's a legitimate question, and is one that John Gruden undoubtedly still ponders after he was forced to watch a clear fumble by the Patriots' quarterback get reversed due to the fact that Brady's arm may have been coming forward when he was hit. The Patriots used their new life to tie the game on a miraculous Adam Vinatieri field goal a few plays later, then won the game in overtime. For the Raiders, this game was fortunately a bump in the road as they made the Super Bowl the next season.
