    Such crap to put that in with the referees not willing to throw the flag for obvious holding. Disgusting disgrace...

      16:45 Would that be whistled down now? Or is that a legit fumble in any era?

        The colored and speed corrected and footage from 58 sent chills down my spine
        I had a discussion with some friends about how old footage doesn't do justice to the athletes of yesteryear as the lower frame rate makes them appear slower.
        Getting to see Johnny U lay the groundwork for the next 50+ years of football in real time was totally awe inspiring.
        Here's to 100 years of the most amazing sport on the planet, and may it last another 100!

          I personally think the Epic in Miami is the best game of all time. Back and forth all the way to OT, and my Chargers came out on top, too.

            That collarbone tackle will be a penalty in today's NFL

                  I think SB 49 should be in the top 5. That game was competitive, included legendary moments, had fantastic plays and went tight down to the wire.

                    Number 1 game easily that SF vs Dallas game. Started a dynasty....and football wasn’t nearly what it is back then with the colts vs giants game like GTFOH smh.

                      Super Bowl XLII the only Super Bowl ranked in the Top 5 NFL's Greatest Games which means it is officially the greatest Super Bowl of all time

                        The giants plan was to have 3 hof players on the dline. GENIUS

                          15:19 The only time Ronnie Lott ever came out on the losing end of a hit.

                            5:53 It's "hook & lateral" not "hook & ladder". Only idiots think this play is called a hook & "ladder".

                            Through common misuse, "ladder" has taken root....for the same reason that "I could care less" or "heart-wrenching" have become common. People repeat what they _think_ they heard, failing to grasp what exactly it is they are saying. Then other mentally lazy people repeat the incorrect phrase, and it takes root.

                            The play literally involves a hook by the WR, followed by a LATERAL to the trailing player. Bill Walsh had a "hook & lateral" play in his playbook in Cincinnati, one of (if not THE) earliest known vestiges of this play. And he called it a hook and "lateral". Any other name for the play is merely an empty-headed corruption of what the play is actually called.

                              Old Ed Sheeran really had me on the edge of my seat with his story about eating toast. Isn't this dude supposed to be like a well-known sportswriter or something? Because he's not selling himself very well.

                                          I'm surprised the 2006 divisional game Pats vs Chargers wasn't anywhere on the list. Even like somewhere from 80-100.

                                            I can buy that. I would think top 75 at least? I mean, they have that awful Redskins- Broncos Supwr Bowl inexplicably ranked and inside the top 75, so yes, I agree.

                                            2 of top 5 games are Cowboy's losses? Gee no bias against the Cowboys. I guess you hate us cuz you aint us.

                                                  The fact that Super Bowl 42 is ranked higher Super Bowl 51 makes my blood boil

                                                            Thank Goodness they gave the Epic in Miami the respect it deserves. Although I think The Catch is a bit overrated but still a great game. This top 5 is honestly much better than the top 5 of the 100 Greatest Plays.

                                                              The Epic in Miami was the first real great football game I watched. The first iconic moment was just a week later, "The Catch". They each deserve their lofty ranking. But I also don't think that 49er-Cowboy NFC title game was all that great. A lot of sloppiness. Shouldn't be close to #1, but the Clark catch should be #1 or 2 as most memorable.

Sea of Hands should be much higher and the "recency" bias is to be blamed. No way does Pats-Falcons (one sided for three quarters) and Pats-Eagles (terrible defense) belong ahead of it.

                                                                            • theFminusclub

It was for the super bowl might i add not to go to it. the disrespect they give tom brady to this day is astonishing.

The Pats-Falcons game is way over-ranked. It was a great comeback with a compelling 4th quarter and overtime. Like other comebacks. Such games aren't great games.

                                                                                • connormcguire18
