The Cleveland Browns have a number of strong candidates to choose from.
There was the 1987 AFC championship game that they lost to Denver, 38-33.
There was the 1986 AFC championship game that they also lost to Denver in overtime, 23-20.
Another strong candidate would be a divisional round game on January 4, 1981, when the Browns lost to Oakland, 14-12.
Any of these three will work, but for the article, I will select the 1986 AFC championship game.
In 1986, the Browns owned the best record in the AFC at 12-4.
In the divisional round, the Browns got by the New York Jets, 23-20 in double overtime, while the Broncos beat the New England Patriots, 22-17.
The stage was then set for the Browns to enjoy their home-field advantage and host the Broncos for the AFC championship.
We can only imagine how much that double overtime game took out of the Browns for the following weekend.
The Browns opened up the scoring in the first quarter when Bernie Kozar hit Herman Fontenot with a touchdown pass to take a 7-0 lead.
In the second quarter, the Broncos scored 10 straight points until Mark Moseley kicked a field goal to tie the game up at 10 at halftime.
In the third quarter, the Broncos kicked a field goal to go up 13-10, but the Browns then scored 10 straight points to go up 20-13.
Kozar hit Brian Brennan on a 48-yard pass to put the Browns up by a touchdown with less that six minutes left in regulation.
A botched kick return left the Broncos at their own 2-yard line and needing to drive 98 yards to tie the score.
What flowed is now known as "The Drive," as Elway drove the team the length of the field.
Elway hit Mark Jackson with a touchdown pass with just 37 seconds left in regulation.
Jackson also caught a key 20-yard pass when the Broncos were faced with a 3rd-and-18.
In overtime, the Broncos drove down the field again on their first possession and Rich Karlis kicked a 33-yard field goal to give the Broncos the win in overtime.
