The 2005 NFL playoffs are kicking off. From the biggest comebacks to the coldest games, check out these NFL fun facts and records.

NFL Playoff Records - Winners and Losers

  • The most successful NFL team in the playoffs is the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have appeared in more Super Bowls (8) than any other team and are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for most Super Bowl wins with five. Dallas has also made the playoffs more than any other team.
  • The Buffalo Bills have choked in the big game a record four times. The Bills lost four Super Bowls in a row between 1991 and 1994. They came painfully close to winning in 1991 but the team's kicker missed a last second field goal that would've given the Bills their first Super Bowl.

    NFL Playoff Records - Greatest Comeback

    The greatest comeback in NFL playoff history happened in a 1993 wildcard playoff game between the Buffalo Bills and the Houston Oilers. The Bills trailed the Oilers 35-3 in the third quarter before scoring five straight touchdowns and eventually winning in overtime 41-38.

    NFL Playoff Records - Coldest Game

    One of the coldest game in NFL playoff history was the famous Ice Bowl between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers on New Year's Eve, 1967. The temperature at Green Bay's Lambeau Field was -13� F with a wind chill of -40� F! Green Bay won the game 21-17 with a touchdown in the final minute. The temperature was so cold that referees wore three pairs of gloves and three pairs of socks. The refs even had to shout for a stoppage in play because they were afraid their lips might freeze to the cold metal of their whistles!

    NFL Playoff Records - Biggest Butt Kicking

    The biggest butt kicking in NFL playoff history was the Chicago Bear's 73-0 trouncing of the Washington Redskins in 1940.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
