Once Upon a Time, the Raiders Beat the Chargers When It Mattered

Cleveland Brown fans hate re-visiting fateful moments in their team’s close but no cigar history.  For Oakland Raider fans though the 1980 playoff season couldn’t have been any sweeter.


It was January 4th, 1981 in Cleveland, Game-time temperature was one degree, with the wind-chill factor estimated at negative 37.


Brian Sipe threw a pass intended for Ozzie Newsome in the end zone with 41 seconds remaining in the AFC playoff game. The Browns, who had marched from their 14 to the Oakland 13, were a field goal away from the AFC Championship Game. Instead, they chose to go for the TD.
