6. Drew Bledsoe throws an interception party against Browns
Score: Browns 20, Patriots 13
Yes, Patriots fans, there was once a time where you couldn’t get past the lowly Cleveland Browns. I’s true, the Browns were once a great franchise. You could even call them dominant, but those words haven’t been used to describe them since the 1940s and 50s.
Nevertheless, the Browns had everything clicking in 1994. Their season came to a close after winning 11 games and they found themselves in a first-round slugfest with the New England Patriots, who won 10 games that season.
With Drew Bledsoe under center, the Patriots seemed to have them right where they wanted them. That is, until the turnovers started piling up. It was a complete shock to see Bledsoe play so terribly. After all, he was arguably the best quarterback in the league that season. He ranked number one in the NFL with 4,555 passing yards and 400 completions. His interceptions during that Wild Card matchup weren’t completely surprising, though, since he did lead the league in that category with 27.
Although the Patriots only lost by a single touchdown, their fans will always be apoplectic about a playoff run that was ended by the Browns in the Wild Card Game.
