14. Broncos vs. Packers, 1997
John Elway was one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game, and this was his finest hour. Elway had lost the previous year in the postseason to the upstart Jaguars, but rebounded in 1997 with road wins over the Chiefs and Steelers to reach the Super Bowl.
Elway was the underdog to Brett Favre and his Green Bay charges, but was able to stay in the game thanks to an opportunistic defense and killer ground game behind Terrell Davis. Elway would lead a late game-winning drive and beat the Packers, 31-24. The championship put Elway in a different class, giving him the win he desperately needed for his legacy.
13. Dolphins at Chiefs, 1971
This contest is the longest ever played in NFL history, and it took place on Christmas Day 1971. The Chiefs were the heavy favorite to beat the young Dolphins at Kansas City Municipal Stadium, led by quarterback Len Dawson, receiver Otis Taylor and a terrific defense dotted with five Hall of Famers.
Kansas City got an incredible performance from running back Ed Podolak, who gained 350 total yards on the night, the most in an NFL playoff game. However, the Dolphins were able to survive thanks to Chiefs kicker Jan Stenerud missing three field goals. Garo Yepremian would end the game with a 37-yard field goal, putting Miami in front, 27-24.
