Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers (2008)

In the final minute of this game, Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler dropped the ball onto the grass and it bounced into the hands of Chargers linebacker Tim Dobbins. But NFL referee Ed Hochuli ruled it an incomplete pass. Denver went on to score a touchdown and a two-point conversion to win 39-38, though Hochuli would apologize and later accept a downgrade in rank.
