The NFL playoffs have been one of the wildest rides in recent memory.
Whether it was the Tebow-led Denver Broncos upsetting the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card Round or the 15-1 Green Bay Packers losing at home to the New York Giants in their first playoff game, many of these games will be talked about for a very long time.
Of course, every game has its goats—players that many tend to blame or are huge contributing factors in a team's loss. This article will serve as a consolation prize for the many goats out there that cost their teams a shot at the ultimate prize.
Note: This article does not have a punter or offensive line because I do not believe that these units were major contributing factors to a team's loss at any point in the playoffs.
