That eggnog looks stale!

Postby spodog » Mon Nov 16, 2009 4:06 pm

In 1971, these two NFL teams played a playoff game on Christmas Day. After receiving numerous complaints from around the country due to the length of the game, the NFL backed away from scheduling games on Christmas Day and didn't schedule games on this most holy of days for another 17 years.

Who were the two teams?

The Miami Dophins and the Kansas City Chiefs played the second of two Divisional Round Playoff games that were scheduled as a Christmas Day doubleheader on Dec. 25, 1971.

After the game ended up setting the record for the longest NFL game ever, momma's from around the country wrote nasty letters to the league complaining about NFL Football on Christmas interfering with Christmas dinner, and the league didn't schedule another one for 17 years.
