1 ... Nxe4 looks good.

After that, 3 possible replies:

A. Rxf7 Nxc5, Rxf8 Kh7

B. Qxf8 Rxf8, Rxf8 Kh7

C. Nxe4 Rxf5

I am not sure which one is better.

Nxe4 Rxf7 Nxc5? (don't be so eager to grab the queen)

Qxf8+ is certainly white's best, but after Rxf8 Rxf8+ Kh7 Nxe4 Qxe4, black is winning.

I watched this game on agadmator's youtube channel. This was the Armageddon game, and Ivanchuk missed several chances to seize big advantages in the early going. But here he allowed 1...N:e4.

  1. R:f7 R:f7 3. N:e4 R:f3 wins an exchange. 2. N:e4 R:f5 3. R:f5 Q:f5 does likewise.
