Leon Lett was a talented player and a cornerstone of the Cowboys defense during its heyday in the early 90's, but fans will likely remember him for his infamous "bonehead" plays. Two of the top three of ESPN's "25 Biggest Sport Blunders" are attributed to Lett. The fans ranked him #1 and #3, whereas an expert panel placed him at #2 and #3.

The first play (ranked #1 in the ESPN fan list, #2 in the ESPN expert panel) occurred in January 1993, late in Super Bowl XXVII, when Lett recovered a fumble in the fourth quarter. With no one in front of him, he seemed to be headed for an easy touchdown on the fumble return, so he stretched his arms out in celebration as he was nearing the end zone. But a hustling Don Beebe chased him down from behind and knocked the ball out of his hand just before he crossed the goal line, sending the ball through the endzone and resulting in a touchback that cost Lett his touchdown. The Cowboys had a commanding 52-17 lead at the time, and the play did not affect the outcome of the game, but it certainly embarrassed Lett on the greatest stage in the sport and it is still well known by football fans today. Lett's gaffe also cost the Cowboys the record for most points scored in a Super Bowl (55, by the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV).

However, his performance in the game was not a total disappointment. He recorded a sack and 2 forced fumbles, one of them setting up a Dallas touchdown.

The second play (ranked #3 in both ESPN lists) occurred during the very next season and was actually more serious as it resulted in a Cowboy defeat. On Thanksgiving Day in 1993, during a rare snow and sleet storm in Dallas, the Cowboys were leading the Miami Dolphins 14-13 with mere seconds remaining in the game. The Dolphins attempted a 41-yard field goal to take the lead but the kick was blocked. While most of his teammates began celebrating, Lett attempted to recover the ball but he slipped on the ice, fumbled, and the Miami Dolphins recovered it on the Dallas one yard line. There was no need to pick up the ball as the Cowboys would have automatically received possession and simply run out the clock. By touching the ball and then failing to hold onto it, Lett enabled the Dolphins to kick another field goal. This second attempt was successful and the Dolphins won the game 16-14.

However, Dallas would still go on to win Super Bowl XXVIII. This game also involved a big play by Lett, but this time it was one that was good for his team instead of a blunder. With the Cowboys trailing 13-6, Lett forced a fumble while tackling running back Thurman Thomas on the third play of the third quarter. Dallas safety James Washington recovered the ball and returned it 46 yards for a touchdown to tie the game, and the Cowboys eventually won 30-13.

Lett played 6 more seasons for the Cowboys and one year with the Broncos before retiring. In his 11 NFL seasons, Lett recorded 22 sacks and recovered 7 fumbles.
