1. Don’t Score The Touchdown

Every football player dreams of scoring the winning touchdown. But somehow Falcons’ running back Todd Gurley managed to score a losing touchdown against the Detroit Lions. The Lions let the Falcons 16-14 in the fourth quarter but had used up all of their timeouts. The Falcons knew they needed to run the clock out and score a field goal to win. It was that simple.

But as we know, the Falcons know how to throw a game away. Gurley did so in the most dramatic of circumstances when he lost concentration and instinctively moved towards the endzone. He recoiled in horror when he realized what he was doing, but it was too late. His momentum carried his body over the line and the Falcons scored the touchdown. Then the Lions went straight back on the attack and duly got the win with a last-second touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford.
