Everyone knew this was going to be a tense match. ESPN kickstarted its Saturday football coverage with it, and Ian Darke couldn't talk about it enough on his Twitter account.
Add in the fact that former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp needed only to move a dozen miles for his new managerial position at Queens Park Rangers, and you've got a derby that everyone in London wanted to see.
The score remained blank into the second half, and if you were a Spurs fan, you had to think you were getting on the scoresheet sooner or later. Visiting Tottenham were dominating in the midfield and QPR hadn't managed a clean sheet at home since a September draw at Chelsea.
But mighty Tottenham, who sat at third in the league table at the beginning of the day, couldn't get the goal they needed against a Queens Park Rangers team that was tied for last place with Reading.
Spurs may have floundered offensively, but how did the individuals grade out?
