Football Helmet

Nov. 30, 1992

At least Patriots fans had an option to watching New England completely melt down in a 34-0 loss to the hardly formidable Atlanta Falcons.

Doug Flutie was busy winning the Grey Cup, leading his Calgary Stampeders over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 24-10.

(If nothing else the Canadian Football League has had some great team names.)

The former Heisman Trophy winner, having played in the United State Football League and the National Football League before heading to the CFL, passed for 480 yards, completing 33 of 49 throws.

The problem south of the Canadian border was not Flutie; it was the cement-headed NFL coaches who could never figure out what to do with him.

Scott Zolak got the call for the Pats and was 9-for-15 for 58 yards. The Patriots’ total offensive output for the game: 105 yards.

One could build a fairly strong case that the 1992 edition of the Patriots was the worst in franchise history.
