When was the last time a pair of brothers QB'ed different NFL teams at the same time?SolEX01 said:Here is the aforementioned game:PeterTheAleut said:Of course not! I watched one NFL playoff game in the mid 80's that went to a second overtime because of that rule. Very long game, since NFL overtime is no Kansas Plan.
SourceThe New York Jets were largely in control of this game, and after a Freeman McNeil 25 yard touchdown, giving the Jets a 20-10 lead with 4:14 left in the game, the "Dog pound" in Cleveland Stadium became a dour place.
In a January 2, 1987 article, the New York Times identified Mark Gastineau as "the Jet who must make the big play on defense." On the Browns next drive, Gastineau did made the big play - a roughing the passer penalty on 3 and 24; a costly penalty, giving the Browns a valuable first down. Browns Quarterback Bernie Kosar turned that opportunity into a 68-yard scoring drive.
The Jets went three-and-out in their next possession, setting up a final drive for the Browns. With seven seconds left in regulation, a 37-yard pass play from Kosar to Receiver Webster Slaughter set up the game tying field goal by Mark Moseley.
After the Jets punted on their first overtime possession, the Browns drove to the Jets' 5 yard line, where despite the apparent sure victory, Moseley missed a 23-yarder wide right.
After a series of punts shared between the teams, Kosar again led the Browns on a 60-yard drive, ending the game two minutes, two seconds into the second overtime on a 27-yard field goal.
In that game, Kosar set post season records for completions, attempts, and passing yards.
Besides the 2008 Baltimore Ravens, has a team ever lost in the same year to teams quarterbacked by brothers? So, a team would have to lose to the Indianapolis Colts (QB'ed by Peyton Manning) and the New York Giants (QB'ed by Eli Manning) in the same year?
I find it interesting that the Giants ran the ball down the throats (200+ yards rushing) of the best rush defense in the NFL.
