Backup Plans: What Every Team Plays When Its Replay Machine Is Down

10.02.13 4 years ago 106 Comments

In case you were too busy coping with the aftermath of Breaking Bad ending (miss u, Badger and Skinny Pete) there was a pretty entertaining Sunday Night Football game that was marred only by the Patriots winning and the replay system going down in Atlanta.  I joked on Twitter that the machine just played Designing Women reruns when it was down and follower @LegKickTKO noted that the Dolphins play Golden Girls.  Both statements are true, and thus I give you the TV shows that play when the other 30 teams’ replay equipment goes down.
