Football is clearly on the nation’s mind (coincidence that that Draft Day trailer just premiered?) as the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks prepare to battle in the Super Bowl this Sunday.
Hollywood is no stranger to getting put under the spell of the sport that has become the nation’s most popular. To help get you in the mood for the big game, and beyond, we present 7 football movies that score much more than a touchdown... they get the extra point too!
Many of them are true stories, and that speaks volumes about how the gridiron serves as a metaphor for life for so many.
From the film that makes grown men cry, Rudy, to the one that will clearly have you inspired after sitting down to watch Remember the Titans online, these football movies lift us up and make us want to yell touchdown!
