Though Tom Brady's a Bay Area native, the Tuck Rule game all but guaranteed he can't set foot in Oakland. With two minutes left to play in an AFC divisional playoff showdown, the Patriots were down 13-10 to the Raiders. Amid blizzard-like conditions, Brady dropped back and was sacked by Charles Woodson, who jarred the ball loose from Brady's grasp. The Raiders recovered, only to have the fumble overturned by an official replay citing Brady's forward motion. By the letter of the NFL law it may not have been a fumble, but for everyone outside of New England, it sure looked like one.
