I missed a good game while I was in Auburn Hills- saw the highlights of the NE-Oak game this morning. Raiders, you wuz robbed. Brady was pumping, not passing, and there wasn't enough evidence on the video to overturn an on-the-field fumble call. This is the first time in my memory that snow played that big a factor in a playoff game. There have been cold playoff games (the Packer-Cowboy Ice Bowl NFL tile game in 1967 or the Chargers-Bengals Siberian conference championship of '82 come to mind) but the closest thing in recent history was the '88 Bears-Eagles playoff game where Soldier Field was enveloped in fog, making the play nearly invisible to the fans. At least they kept the snow plow guy from clearing a spot for the winning field goal this time.
