6. Super Bowl XXXVIII - Footing the Loss
Sometimes the little things can come back to kick you in the backside. Ask Panthers kicker Jon Kasay. He may be Carolina's all-time scoring leader, but at the end of Super Bowl XXXVIII Kasay made a mistake that may have cost his team a chance at a title. After Carolina had just scored a thrilling game-tying TD, knotting the score 29-29, Kasay made a major kickoff boo-boo — booting the ball out of bounds, giving Tom Brady's Patriots excellent field position at their 40 with just over a minute left. Tommy Boy coolly led the Pats into field-goal range, giving Kasay's counterpart Adam Vinatieri a game-winning 41-yarder that left the Panthers kicking themselves. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
