One of the most famous (or infamous) plays in NFL history occurred on January 19, 2002. The New England Patriots played host to the the Oakland Raiders in the AFC Divisional Round. The game was decided by a controversial call. Then Raiders (and future Packers) cornerback Charles Woodson forced what appeared to be a fumble on a strip-sack of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The referees, though, called an incomplete pass and the “tuck rule” was born.
