Jousting horses for Chargers is not a good clue either. They definitely have lightning bolts on their helmets.

Haha. Chargers are military horses though. The name, Charger, has absolutely nothing to do with lightning. As a long time Charger fan we all know how weird it is that we have lightning on our helmets, but we just go with it!

Wrong, wrong, wrong...Stanford - the University, not an NFL team, was named for the color and that's why they're the Cardinal - no plural. All the rest were named for the birds - and the Arizona Cardinals used to be the St. Louis football Cardinals, which were most certainly named for the birds - as you could see from the redbird heads on their helmets.

Actually the Cardinals are oldest franchise in the NFL and they are named after the color. It has something to do with a person saying something about the shade of red and the owner saying that it is cardinal red.

The original team (from 1898) was indeed out of Chicago but they were originally called the Maroons. They acquired second hand jerseys and it was only after the remark was made.."Those jersey's aren't Maroon, they're Cardinal Red!

Please with the racism remark. Seminoles, Indians, Blackhawks...those names were all meant to be just as racist as Redskins was intended to be - not at all. This nonsense has to stop somewhere.

Anytime someone makes assumptions due to one's age or sex it is rude. We all do it from time to time, but that doesn't make it right. Lara Croft was also a movie. I don't play the video game but I knew the answer because I saw the movie.

Dec 15, 2017
I'm no fan of the Patriots, but to say they win by cheating is just ridiculous. The b.s. with the videotaping and the deflated balls was so minor and had very little effect on them winning games. In all their super bowls, they've never been found guilty of cheating. In fact their last win over the Falcons was the biggest comeback in SB history.

That was a little tongue in cheek, responding to 'They don't cheat, they win', though saying that it 'had very little effect on them winning games' does sound like you agreeing that they were cheating, even if you only think it was in a minor way

It's based on the percentages of people who took the quiz and how well they did. Since apparently a lot of people who took the quiz did very well, it turns out you need a perfect score to be in a high enough percentile for all 5 points.

"Jousting horses" is a horrible clue. Also, simply saying "politically incorrect" is a misleading clue. Try "politically incorrect name" or something.
