PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — One of the best days of NFL football in recent memory was highlighted by four of the worst mistakes.
Kyle Williams, Billy Cundiff, and Lee Evans all cost their teams a shot at the Super Bowl. Williams fumbled two punts, the second gave the Giants the field position needed to kick the game winning field goal. Lee Evans dropped a touchdown pass that would have won the game for the Ravens, and Billy Cundiff kicked it wide left for Baltimore, shortly after the Evans drop.
All three were costly, but which one was the worst? Angelo Cataldi and The Morning Team talked to Ray Didinger about the games and the gaffes this morning on 94WIP. They also spoke about Eli Manning’s clutch performance.
“It’s just such a fundamental and unforgivable mistake,” Didinger said of Williams first of two flubbed punts, “those two special teams mistakes are ten points and the difference in the game.”

Angelo mentioned this morning that mistakes like these would cause a city-wide meltdown in Philadelphia. What do you think? How would Eagles fans have handled this?
