I'll never forget either one, but I have to go with Ben's for one major reason. If Williams missed that tackle, the Colts were looking at a big gain. If Ben missed his, the Colts were looking at a touchdown.

Tough call.

I am tempted to go with the tackle because it was part of a Super Bowl run, but the reception was a major breakthrough. I am tempted to go for the immaculate reception because I was not alive for it, and I feel not selecting would be in part because of a possible youthful bias.

Both great.

The Colts were looking at a TD. We brought the house. No one was at home.

And they woulda ran out the clock. We had no timeouts. Woulda been able to get it pretty low.

But still, both great.

I may be wrong, but I could have sworn we had at least two defenders in front of him. You can see one of them walking back to the line at the end of the video.

I still think he would have gotten to the sideline but still...

Helluva tackle. Saved the game.

Well, being a young'un, I'll have to say Ben's tackle because I was ten years old for the first one and don't really remember it.

Also I had the giant heart attack during the Colts game and Ben saved the day... ETERNALLY greatful for that one. :)
