    As promised whats your favorite PLAYOFF game of the decade..

    Tough for me - Cant decide between snow bowl, 01 AFC Champ game with Willie yelling "Cancel those reservations", or the 03 divisional game with Manning pulling clods of Gillette sod out of his facemask after his multiple sacks leading to 4 picks...

    2004 AFC Championship at Pittsburgh when Deion Branch said at the end of the game, "Hey, where are the towels?"

    1st Superbowl Victory against the Rams. For me the biggest upset of all time. We had no chance against the greatest show on turf so we just beat the living cr@p out of them and won a game we never should have been able to. This is the game that gives me hope whenever I think we're not good enough to win another SuperBowl.

    I would have to go with the Snow Bowl as well.

    I thought it was Paxton who started the snow angels.

    The Snow Bowl. When the ref stood there and said..."Upon further review, the quarterback's arm was moving forward..." I jumped up and yelled "We're going to win the Super Bowl!" 
    I have no proof of that. The dog ate the videotape.

    04 SB, the game cemented a dynasty! Pats' receivers mocking the T.O. Eagle flap, McNabb running for his life, Brady playing one of his best, if not his best, playoff game in his career.

    I only had to read a couple of comments in a row here to realize, yes, the Snow Bowl.  Second place is the snow game popping like fireworks in the crowd, when Bruschi picked a pass and darted into the EZ, clear away, sliding on his knees.  (Or was that a division-clincher game?) But Snow Bowl started it all, and was so much more dramatic in a rare way.  Viniateri will be considered the best clutch kicker in the league history for decades, maybe even a hundred of years or more - FOR WHEN WE HAD HIM (knyuck, knyuck, knyuck)!  Eat that, COLTS!

    And yeah, it was Lonnie doing the angels.  Great, reliable player. Wish him well.  Or back.  It worked great with Tully.

    05 afc championship, Rodney Harrison picking off Roethlisberger running it back 80 yards for a touchdown, 41-27 win and on to SB 29.

    They sure could use a Deion Branch today, had great speed after the catch.

    Okay, I'm changing mine to the Snow Bowl too if everyone is picking it. LOL

    Toss Up:
    '01 AFC Divisional against the Raiders (Snowbowl)
    '01 AFC Conference against the Steelers ("Cancel Those Reservations")
    '01 SuperBowl 36 (The Silence of the Rams)
    '03 AFC Conference against the Ponies (Peyton fought The Law and The Law won)
    '04 Divisional against the Colts (Ground Hog Day for the Ponies "Just Like Last Year")
    '04 Conference against the Steelers (" Where are your towels?"). Hines Ward crying over Bettis potential retirement was just the icing on the cake.

    Its hard to choose one so these are my favorite Playoff games of the decade.

    Re: As promised whats your favorite PLAYOFF game of the decade..

    I can watch the 'snowbowl' over and over!

    Some of the reasons why the best for me:
    * Raiders favored greatly
    * Nobody expected that team to go from 5-5 to end with 7 straight wins
    * It was nip n tuck through whole game
    * the brilliant coaching by BB and charle weiss
    *wiggins out of nowhere
    *#12 RUNS for a 5 yd td!
    *the tuck rule (all of football land discussed for days)
    *#4's 45 yd tying FG probably the greatest FG in history
    * and, this W began the run for the team of the decade

    yup, I liked that game! :-)

    I prefer 03- Colts Championship game. Ty Law Owning Manning with three picks. I love watching that game and Manning face as he throws pick after pick.

    It's hard not to point to the divisional game with the Raiders as the magical moment. How does Viniateri make that kick? It was completely unpossible. But for an old campaigner like me, there was no better feeling than watching Drew Bledsoe come off the bench in the AFC Championship Game and spoon-feed Bitchburgh its lunch (and its luggage -- Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha).

    Only because the Pats have so many memorable playoff wins, amazingly no one has even mentioned the tremendous divisional playoff victory in San Diego in '05 playoffs. 
    Belichick outcoaching Marty, Troy Brown stripping the SD player of the ball who just made a crucial interception...
    For most NFL teams a road playoff game win like that would be an all time franchise highlight...

    You're right, Bob.

    It's really impossible to pick just one.

      mine is the 2004 20-3 victory against the colts.  esp. since Manning broke all those scoring records....the snow, Brueichi(sorry) tearing the ball away for a "fumble", etc

    I agree with prariemike, it was really sweet sending the Steelers home in '01!

    The best thing, however, is that we have so many games to pick from!

    My fave was the 2004 divisional game against the Colts, 20-3, played in Jan. '05.  I relished that game from start to finish.   Everybody was predicting that we'd get our butts kicked and we just crucified them.  Bruschi had that great takeaway from Dominic Rhodes, where he said afterwards, "I wanted it more than he did."  I just laugh even thinking about that game.

    Brushci walking off and telling the on-field reporter (whoever it was) "Unstoppable? Look at the scoreboard!" was classic.

    It's the Snow Bowl.  It was magical. 

    I love snow games anyhow.  I went to one when they played at Fenway Park about 150 years ago.  It was like Woodstock without mud.  It felt like school was closed and you were playing in the snow with 50,000 of your friends.

    I love the snow plow in the Miami game.  I live in Florida now and it just makes me smile when Dolphin fans mention it.  It was so outrageous. Just funny!

    Yeah, it's the Snow Bowl because it was like a fantasy ending in a romantic comedy and then the narrator says "the Patriots went on to win their first Superbowl and everyone lived happily ever after" 

    Pardon me if I strayed off a bit. :) I just feel good every time I see a football game in the snow.

    2004-05 AFCCG when we destroyed the 15-1 Steelers. TB had the flu the night before and Pittsburgh was already calling themselves the champs. As Willie Mac put it they forgot who the champ was, and we were the champs!
