Jim McMahon and the 1985 Chicago Bears.
It's mid-season. At the Minnesota Vikings.
It's late in the game. 3rd quarter or so.
The Bears are losing bad, BAD, that day.
McMahon's been on the bench all day long with an injury.
is finally called into the game.
4 plays. 4 passes. 3 TDs.
Let me repeat that (because this feat, for some reason, seems to never be mentioned) 4 plays. 4 passes. 3 TDs.
The Bears win, and go on to a perfect season (minus the MNF Miami game), are UNSCORED upon in the playoffs (nada, that's right, zero
) and win Super Bowl XX in it-was-over-in-the-2nd-quarter style.
An simply unbelievable feat, largely forgotten.
