Barnwell: Worst Plays In NFL History

Bill Barnwell had a fun column about the worst plays in NFL history, spurred by a Twitter question he posted yesterday.

Those of you who know your football history should nod your heads about the play he ranked number one. But this one is probably most fun for Broncos fans to talk about.

Or there was that time Philip Rivers was kneeling to set up what would have been a game-winning field goal against the Chiefs on Monday Night Football in 2011 and fumbled the snap away. That was the year Tim Tebow’s Broncos won the division on a tiebreaker at 8-8, so it’s fair to say this was probably the power of Tebow striking when we all least expected:

OK, so it helped fuel Tebowmania, but of course we have to joke about Phillip Rivers, right?
