Something to impress your friends with
As you're sitting around tonight watching an Orange Bowl that features two suspect teams, ask your buddies the following trivia question: Can you name the four players in NFL history who started a playoff game in the same season that were drafted No. 1 overall?
Hint: One of them played in the NFC East, which makes this blog entry semi-relevant.
- Earl Campbell, Houston Oilers, 1978
- Kenneth Sims, New England Patriots, 1982
- Russell Maryland, Dallas Cowboys, 1991
- Jake Long, Miami Dolphins, 2008 (when he starts against the Ravens)
