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.

That was fun, making the playoffs would have been more fun.
