Ten years ago today, the word’s “Tuck Rule” became a part of every NFL fan’s vocabulary as the Patriots beat the Raiders in one of the most memorable playoff games in football history. The famous play took place during the AFC Divisional Playoff game at a snowy Foxboro Stadium. Oakland cornerback Charles Woodson sacked New England quarterback Tom Brady and caused a fumble that was recovered by Oakland. Officials reviewing the fourth quarter play ruled that Brady’s arm was moving forward, making it an incomplete pass instead of an interception. The Patriots then moved the ball into field goal range to tie the game and won in overtime. Three weeks later, they won their first of three Super Bowls in four years.
