During Super Bowl XXXIII, the Denver Broncos had a play which resulted in a tackle at the 1-yard line of the Atlanta Falcons to end the third period. My buddy Mike and I looked at each other immediately, and called our bookie. We bet four figures each on the Broncos' fourth-quarter line, -0.5 points. At the time, I might have been making four figures in a full month of work, if I was lucky. FB Howard Griffith immediately punched it in just four seconds into the fourth quarter, and QB John Elway had a 3-yard touchdown less than four minutes into the quarter. However, on the ensuing kickoff, WR/KR Tim Dwight had a 94-yard return for touchdown to give my buddy and I heart failure. Luckily, the Broncos ended up covering the fourth-quarter line, outscoring the Falcons 17-13 to hang on.

It goes all the way back to October 1997 in a game between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts at the old RCA Dome. The Jets, leading 16-10, were laying 4.5 points. With just 16 seconds left on a 4th and 1 on their own 34-yard line, QB Neil O'Donnell took the snap, and fired a pass through the back of the end zone for an intentional safety with 10 seconds remaining. I thought it was a crazy play, but didn't know the rule, as my buddy Mike laughed and laughed. When I saw the scoreboard flash 16-12, I couldn't believe the misfortune. It was a bad beat from 25 years ago, and I'll never forget it.
