7. Giants vs. Bills (1991)
This was a brutal moment for Scott Norwood. The Bills kicker had the chance to become a franchise icon. Instead, he sealed his place in NFL folklore after committing one of the worst chokes ever. Buffalo defeated the Giants several weeks earlier before they met again in Super Bowl XXV. Norwood had a 47-yard field goal attempt with eight seconds left but sent it wide.
It was a harrowing moment because it rested entirely on his shoulders. Or rather his foot. Meanwhile, the Bills played in four consecutive Super Bowls but lost them all. Norwood also deserved better because he was a loyal Bills servant. Unfortunately, the NFL is a cruel place and fans have short memories. The All-Pro star even scored a decisive field goal in the AFC Championship game (via Sportscasting).
