I tweeted this question last night, but watching highlights of the 2007 Fiesta Bowl made me wonder if it was one of the top five football games of the decade. I think determining the top ten is easy enough but trying to narrow it down to five is impossible. Brock and I got together on it this morning. Here is our top ten, based in part on your suggestions.
In no particular order:
1. 2007 Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma and Boise State
2. 1999 Super Bowl: St. Louis And Tennessee (Feb 2000)
3. 2001 Super Bowl: Pats and Rams
4. 2001 AFC Division Game: Pats and Raiders (Snow Bowl, Tuck Game)
5. 2005 Rose Bowl: USC and Texas (Jan 06)
6. 2005 AFC Champ: Pitt and Indy
7. 2007 Super Bowl: Giants and Pats
8. 2008 Super Bowl: Steelers and Cardinals
9. 2005 USC at Notre Dame
10. 2004 NFC Divisional Game: Philly and Green Bay (4th and 26)
How do you possibly cut that list in half? We need help!
