Came across this just now. Anybody remember this crazy points differential scenario? Being ten at the time, the only thing I understood was that the Panthers had to outscore Green Bay. Really fun day despite coming out on the "losing" end after everything played out.

 

Starts at the @4:00 mark:

NFL used to be fun. Remember when you could celebrate after a touchdown?

Yep.  It is so incredibly rare.  Very exciting, though.

That offense was on fire that year. Jeffers and Beuerlein.

Does anyone know why we had to outscore green bay? From what i remember we beat them so we shouldve had some kind of tiebreaker right?

A quick check shows 5 teams at 8-8 of which the lions beat us and we beat packers. 

 

I guess it was just one of those "it will never happen anyway" tie breaker rules that had to be used. Still it beats a coin toss...

That was awesome right there. Who would've thought it would be Delhomme who stopped us from getting into the postseason back then.

I remember that game. Crazy scenario man. Even before the game ended, Buerlein was going around apologizing to the saints and explaining why we were running up the score. I still think our offense in 1999 was the best in our history. The second half of that season was so awesome and I was convinced we were a championship next year. Buerlein was lookin like Payton Manning, two 1000 yd receivers (moose and jeffers), wesley walls caught a TD on what it seemed every other drive....damn I've gotten old :) And let's not forget how hot Timmy B started that year (remember the redskins game when he was on fire before he got pulled to share the ball with Fred lane)
