Byner is one of the unluckiest players ever because of one awful moment in the 1987 AFC Championship Game. ‘The Fumble’ is a play that went down in history for all of the wrong reasons. The Browns trailed the Broncos by seven points with six minutes left in the game. Byner had a chance to be a hero in the final minute.
He rampaged upfield with the ball in his arms and fans would have staked their inheritances on him scoring. But he fumbled and the Broncos stripped him of possession in a shocking incident. However, it’s easy to forget he was Cleveland’s best player in that game with two touchdowns and seven receptions for 120 yards (via Fansided).
