Argument 78: What Was The Worst Call In Boston Sports History?

Book Answer: Ben Dreith's Botched Roughing the Passer

I am going to have to agree with this one. Let me set the scene.

  • Third and eighteen for the Raiders in a postseason game.
  • Pass is incomplete.
  • Ben Dreith makes the call that Sugar Bear Hamilton "roughs the passer."
  • Raiders score a touchdown four plays later.
  • The touchdown wins the game for Oakland.
  • New England's first playoff game is blown.
Really a recipe for disaster.

  1. I am sure people would agree and then I am sure others have their own choices!
