Default Worst Choke Job in Super Bowl History?

You decide. It's still hard for me to believe how badly Denver blew their opportunity to beat an undermanned Washington team who started backup QB and RB in 1987.

Bills also choked badly vs. Giants starting their backup QB in 1990.

New England's loss vs. Philly and their backup QB is on par in Super Bowl 52.

Darrell Bevel not giving ball to Lynch a VERY close 2nd to last years Atlanta choke.

And what's up with the poll? It didn't give me a chance to vote? EDIT: Nevermind, its allowing me now.

Choke job? The Eagles were the best team in the NFL for most of the year. Who cares who was playing QB.

This is a really stupid poll. I could probably name minimum 10 other Super Bowls with better options for choke jobs than the 3 listed.

lol, there are a lot of choke options in the super bowl. I left out backup QB as part of the choke job poll. I was more focused on and can't figure out how all these years later, that Denver took a big **** on the field vs. Washington. We should have won that game.

The poll question is only for games in which backup QB's played.

Why is a back up qb playing great the sign of a "choke job". That makes no sense.

Thanks for pointing that out. I guess I should read the title question better.

Later on, maybe I'll create a poll for biggest Super Bowl choke ever.

It's simple. Dan Reeves vs Joe Gibbs.

It's more an indictment on the great QB's that opposed them in the game and failed to get the job done despite superiors odds.

Last year was the worst choke job in a game a team had in the bag. Denver losing to Williams with 5 tds in a row is the biggest ever to a backup.
