This game earned its name thanks to a controversial game-changing play. During the play, Oakland cornerback Charles Woodson sacked New England quarterback Tom Brady. The hit appeared to cause a fumble that was recovered by the Raiders, a pivotal play that stood to seal an Oakland victory. After officials reviewed the play, they determined Brady had stopped his throwing motion and was attempting to "tuck" the ball into his body. That determination made it an incomplete pass, not a fumble under the then-effective NFL rules. As a result, the original call was overturned. With under a minute left in regulation, New England placekicker Adam Vinatieri's 45-yard field goal sent the game into overtime. Later, Vinatieri kicked a 23-yard field goal to win the game, 16-13, for the Patriots. New England went on to win Super Bowl XXXVI.
