Top 10 Thanksgiving moments in NFL history

Over the years, NFL games on Thanksgiving have included some great performances, memorable moments and forgettable gaffes. Take a look at the top 10:

   O.J. Simpson added some "Juice" -- rushing for a 
  [Thanksgiving](http://www.nfl.com/thanksgiving) Day-record 273 yards -- to what wound up as a 27-14 
  [Bills](/teams/buffalobills/profile?team=BUF) defeat at the hands of the 
  [Lions](/teams/detroitlions/profile?team=DET) at the Pontiac Silverdome on 
  [Thanksgiving](http://www.nfl.com/thanksgiving) Day 1976. 
   When a 
  [Thanksgiving](http://www.nfl.com/thanksgiving) Day showdown in 1998 between the 
  [Steelers](/teams/pittsburghsteelers/profile?team=PIT) and 
  [Lions](/teams/detroitlions/profile?team=DET) went into overtime, it became an unexpected coin flip adventure for Jerome Bettis and referee Phil Luckett. 
   The 
  [Dolphins](/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA) set a 
  [Thanksgiving](http://www.nfl.com/thanksgiving) Day record by dropping 55 points on the St. Louis 
  [Cardinals](/teams/arizonacardinals/profile?team=ARI) in 1977 as Bob Griese threw for six touchdowns, a record that has since been tied by 
  [Peyton Manning](/player/peytonmanning/2501863/profile). 
   If it wasn't bizarre enough that there was snow accumulating on the Texas Stadium turf, the absurd occurred with just 10 seconds left in the game, when a blocked field goal gave Leon Lett another place in NFL infamy. 
   On 
  [Thanksgiving](http://www.nfl.com/thanksgiving) Day 1974, 
  [Cowboys](/teams/dallascowboys/profile?team=DAL) rookie Clint Longley, playing in place of an injured Roger Staubach, threw a winning 50-yard touchdown pass to Drew Pearson with 28 seconds remaining to defeat the 
  [Redskins](/teams/washingtonredskins/profile?team=WAS).
