Bracketology: The Greatest Game of All Time

What is the greatest NFL game of all time?

NFL.com’s fourth annual edition of Bracketology seeks to answer the long-standing debate. This year, fans will decide the greatest game of all time by voting at NFL.com/bracketology.

The field of 32 games was decided by a panel of NFL Media analysts and is divided into four brackets. NFL.com’s Bracketology will have five rounds of voting in a typical bracket style format, with the game with the most votes within its matchup at the end of each round advancing to the next round.

Provided below is this year’s Bracketology schedule:

- Quarterfinals – Tuesday, March 24

- Semifinals Friday, March 27

- Finals Wednesday, April 1

- Winner Unveiled Sunday, April 5

Weekdays at 1:00 PM ET through Tuesday, March 31, NFL Network will air 90-miniute NFL’s Greatest Games editions of select games from the bracket. On Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3 at 1:00 PM ET, NFL Network will air the full game broadcasts of the two games featured in the Finals, with the winning game revealed Sunday, April 5. The full game broadcast of the game determined by fans to be the greatest NFL game of all time will air Sunday, April 5 at 8:00 PM ET.

Fans will also be able to access all 32 games featured on the original list on NFL Now, and every game will be available in full on NFL.com.

Last year, NFL.com’s Bracketology voted on the greatest quarterback of all time (Johnny Unitas). In 2013, fans voted to determine the greatest team of all time (1976 Oakland Raiders) and in 2012 voted on the greatest play of all time (DeSean Jackson’s walk-off punt return for a touchdown against the New York Giants in 2010).

Quotes From Super Bowl XLIX Editions of NFL Network’s ‘NFL GameDay First’ & ‘NFL GameDay Morning’

superbowl-xlix-49-logo-nfl-nbcQuick Quotes from NFL GameDay First & NFL GameDay Morning

“I think if [Tom Brady] wins this game, he’s the best quarterback to have ever played this game.” – Shaun O’Hara on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

“If he wins a fourth [Super Bowl], he’s the greatest ever in my book.” – Michael Irvin on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

“[Bill Belichick] is the best professional football coach I think ever lived. I’m upset that I played for a plethora of teams and never got an opportunity to play for Bill Belichick.” – Deion Sanders on New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick

“I think it’s relatively easy to play defense against a team that can only do one thing. Unfortunately, that’s not what we’re talking about here with Seattle.” – New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on the Seattle Seahawks

“You just never know with contract situations and the whole business side of it. I’m here now and I’m happy to be here now. The future will take care of itself.” – New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis on what next year holds

“It’s not just back-to-back Super Bowls – it’s back-to-back Super Bowls in his first three years, it’s back-to-back Super Bowls climbing over the backs of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning…If Russell Wilson wins back-to-back Super Bowls, there is no doubt it puts him amongst the top.” – Michael Irvin on Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

“They don’t just want to just win one championship – they want to win three or four. They want to be a dynasty. They want to be known forever.” – Michael Robinson on the Seattle Seahawks

“I think [Marshawn Lynch] is the most important player in this football game.” – Kurt Warner on Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

“These [Seattle Seahawks wide receivers] have been called pedestrian, they’ve been called no-namers, but they always come up with the big play.” – Nate Burleson on the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers

“Marshawn Lynch is going to get paid. I’m told the Seattle Seahawks have made him a monster contract extension offer that would keep him in a Seahawks uniform for the rest of his career.” – Ian Rapoport on Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

***For complete quotes from ‘NFL GameDay First’ & ‘NFL GameDay Morning,’ see below***

Quotes from NFL GameDay First

“I think if [Tom Brady] wins this game, he’s the best quarterback to have ever played this game.” – Shaun O’Hara on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

“If Russell Wilson gets outside of the protection [and] can scramble around, New England loses. If [the Patriots] keep him in the pocket, New England wins.” – Brian Billick on Super Bowl XLIX

“Luke Willson…I believe will have as many catches and more yards than Rob Gronkowski.” – Sterling Sharpe on Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Willson

“What Pete Carroll and John Schneider did a great job of was collecting a group of players – core players – that were outliers. These guys, they don’t just want to just win one championship – they want to win three or four. They want to be a dynasty. They want to be known forever.” – Michael Robinson on what fuels the Seattle Seahawks

“I told my team before we walked out on to the field in Tampa, I wanted them to stop and look each other in the eye – I mean really look each other in the eye because 10 minutes after we we’re done beating the New York Giants, I knew that world would change; free agency, the business side of the business. I wanted them to appreciate this doesn’t come very often. It may be the last time you have that opportunity.” – Brian Billick on the mindset of players and coaches on Super Bowl Sunday

“I expect what you’ve seen from Marshawn Lynch all season long: fast, physical, aggressive Beast Mode running.” – Michael Robinson on what he expects from Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch

“[Rob Gronkowski] is a beast. I don’t know what else to say, I don’t know what other word to use. He dictates coverage, he’s a great run blocker and he’s a mismatch for anybody in the passing game.” – Michael Robinson on Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski

Quotes from NFL GameDay Morning

“I think [Marshawn Lynch] is the most important player in this football game.” – Kurt Warner on Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

“Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the masters of finding something that you didn’t suspect.” – Deion Sanders on what he expects from the New England Patriots today

“These [Seattle Seahawks wide receivers] have been called pedestrian, they’ve been called no-namers but they always come up with the big play.” – Nate Burleson on the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers

“[Rob Gronkowski] is different. He dictates coverage. He sets the tone for your entire team. But you can’t stop this guy; let’s just be honest you can’t stop him. You can only hope to contain him.” – Michael Robinson on how the Seattle Seahawks stop Rob Gronkowski

“It’s not just back-to-back Super Bowls – it’s back-to-back Super Bowls in his first three years, it’s back-to-back Super Bowls climbing over the backs of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning…If Russell Wilson wins back-to-back Super Bowls, there is no doubt it puts him amongst the top and right where he belongs because he hasn’t gotten all of the credit he deserves for the kind of quarterback [he is].” – Michael Irvin on what a win in this game would mean for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

“If [Russell Wilson] wins this game…He starts to creep into the conversation of how we talk about Tom Brady, how we talk about Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, [and] Aaron Rodgers.” – Marshall Faulk on Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

“Marshawn Lynch is the heart of this team. If he’s not going, [the Seahawks] aren’t going.” – Deion Sanders on Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

“I don’t think anybody in the game over the last several years has made more plays than Richard Sherman.” – Deion Sanders on Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman

“If he wins a fourth [Super Bowl], he’s the greatest ever in my book.” – Michael Irvin on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

“I think he supersedes Peyton Manning but let’s not throw [Tom Brady] in the category with Joe Montana, who was 4-for-4. He’s royalty.” – Deion Sanders on the impact of a fourth Super Bowl win or a third straight Super Bowl loss on Tom Brady’s legacy

“[Bill Belichick] is the best professional football coach I think ever lived. I’m upset that I played for a plethora of teams and never got an opportunity to play for Bill Belichick.” – Deion Sanders on New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick

“Why do we always have to put running dual-threat quarterback next to [Russell Wilson’s] name? Why can’t he just be one of the greatest quarterbacks?” – Terrell Davis on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport

On Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s contract status:

“There have been no negotiations yet between Seattle and Russell Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers, a baseball agent. No one wants any distractions as the Seahawks make another Super Bowl run but as soon as the Super Bowl ends, negotiations are set to begin. They are expected to make Russell Wilson the highest-paid player in NFL history. If you’re wondering the ballpark figure, Aaron Rodgers makes about $22 million per year. That is where negotiations will begin for Russell Wilson…He is among the winningest young quarterbacks out there. That’s going to be one of his big talking points. Everything the Seahawks have done this offseason has been to build for this Russell Wilson extension; they traded Percy Harvin, they got Cliff Avril done, [and] they got K.J. Wright done all to set up a deal for Russell Wilson this offseason.”

On Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch:

“Marshawn Lynch is going to get paid. I’m told the Seattle Seahawks have made him a monster contract extension offer that would keep him in a Seahawks uniform for the rest of his career. This is the culmination of several weeks of negotiations between Doug Hendrickson, his agent, and the Seattle Seahawks. As far as some specifics on his looming contract extension, I’m told that in 2015 Lynch would earn more than $10 million. This would pay him as much as any running back not named Adrian Peterson. A huge extension and a stunning turnaround. We know earlier this year, the Seahawks were ready to get rid of Marshawn Lynch; move on because of his age, because of his attitude and his hefty salary so I asked a member of the Seahawks, ‘Why are you making this commitment?’ What I was told simply, ‘He has earned it with his play.’”

On the deflated footballs:

“There is video evidence of an elderly game day operator – someone employed by the Patriots only on game day – walking into the bathroom with two bags of balls: 12 from the Patriots and 12 from the Colts, spending 98 seconds in there and then heading back onto the field. This was discovered by the Patriots and handed over to Ted Wells very quickly. I spoke with someone who was with Tom Brady when he found out about these allegations and Brady seemed confused and a little miffed and said he works on the balls all week but does not know what happened to them on game day. As far as the 11 footballs that I’m told were below the 12.5 PSI, one was about two pounds under – that’s the one that is in the league’s possession – several were about a pound under and several more were just a tick below 12.5 PSI. By the way, the Patriots still have most of those footballs. They were put back into circulation before the investigation started.”

New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick with NFL Media’s Melissa Stark

NFL Media’s Melissa Stark sat down with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for an interview on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay First and NFL GameDay Morning.

On how much having his integrity questioned this week has bothered him:

“Well this week’s all about Seattle, so we’ve been doing our best to prepare for the Seahawks. I’m doing that, our team’s doing that and we’ll be ready to go Sunday. That’s our focus.”

On how he plans on shutting down Marshawn Lynch:

“I think it’s relatively easy to play defense against a team that can only do one thing. Unfortunately, that’s not what we’re talking about here with Seattle. They have a great running back – they have a great group of running backs – but [Marshawn] Lynch obviously is really kind of in a class by himself. The quarterback’s a problem, the receivers are a problem, they have a good offensive line.”

Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson with NFL Network’s Kurt Warner

NFL Network’s Kurt Warner sat down with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson for an interview on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay First and NFL GameDay Morning.

On whether or not there was a moment where he said, ‘That’s where it changed’ during the season trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions:

“We were 6-4 and everybody doubted us. We lost to the Kansas City Chiefs and that week we had a players meeting and really talked about where we really want to go. It’s not about the record. At the end of the day it comes down to are we going to keep focusing on each other and are we going to keep getting better day by day? We ignored the noise, we ignored all the talk from the outside.”

On playing against Peyton Manning in last year’s Super Bowl and Tom Brady in this year’s Super Bowl:

“Well you always want to play against the best. That’s what you’re going to get in the Super Bowl. To go against guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady who I have tons of respect for; I watch their games, I study their games, I try to learn from them. It gets you excited, but hopefully not too excited. Just focus on the game. Then when my career is done then I can look back at it.”

On his vision:

“In terms of professionally what I want to do, I want to play 15-plus more years, get to the Hall of Fame, and win a lot of championships and all that. I’d love to be the owner of a team one day. But it’s way bigger than that. For me, my vision is how can I affect somebody positively every day? When you focus on other people, somehow good things happen to you. I think that’s my goal. That’s my vision.”

Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll with NFL Media’s Michael Silver

NFL Media’s Michael Silver sat down with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for an interview on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning.

On how important the year off from coaching after he was fired by the New England Patriots was to him:

“I had no plan for that year but it wound up being one of the most important years of my football coaching career. It hit me along the way that I needed to really get at the heart of what’s really true to myself. And then I was able to mold it and shape it in the years at SC to become the approach and the concept and the culture that we try to create here at Seattle.”

On the success of the New England Patriots:

“I really admire the job that not just coach Belichick has done but that Robert Kraft and his family have done, and the decisions that they made to let Bill do what he’s capable of doing. I think it’s a great illustration of a way to structure an NFL organization when you let the coach really run the thing.”

New England Patriots Cornerback Darrelle Revis with NFL Media’s Andrea Kremer

NFL Media’s Andrea Kremer sat down with New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis for an interview on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning.

On what went through his mind when he realized he was finally going to the Super Bowl:

“Just relief of trying to get there for eight years. It’s finally here and I’m very excited. It’s just great. It’s been a long ride.”

On how he evaluates his play now:

“Actually I feel I’m a better player; more mentally. I guess you get better with age people say. You have a lot more wisdom.”

On ways in which he feels a greater appreciation for where he is:

“I’ve always been humble and this even humbled me even more to definitely get a second chance at my career. There are still chapters I’m writing in this legacy.”

On what next year holds:

“You just never know with contract situations and the whole business side of it. I’m here now and I’m happy to be here now. The future will take care of itself.”

New England Patriots Chairman & CEO Robert Kraft with NFL Media’s Melissa Stark

NFL Media’s Melissa Stark sat down with New England Patriots Chairman & CEO Robert Kraft for an interview on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning.

On what he learned from firing Pete Carroll and what needed to change within the organization to support the head coach:

“To be fair to Pete [Carroll], I had just come off a very difficult owner relationship with my then head coach and I was looking for a different style. So I didn’t give Pete all the power he should have had. I don’t think there’s any exact formula for how it’s done. It’s really what fits each individual system.”

On if he thought Bill Belichick was capable of this when he hired him:

“The greatest decisions I’ve made in my life are by instinct. I remember when I hired Bill I had a lot of people telling me it was a mistake. But he and I had established a rapport in ’96 when he coached the secondary. You need a coach that understands economics, that understands the impact of the salary cap and how to make those difficult decisions that allow you to sustain success over the long term. I don’t think there’s anyone better than Bill at doing that.”

On where his passionate speech he gave Monday in Arizona came from:

“I just didn’t like the way we were, in my opinion, being unfairly attacked. I just decided to do what was right for our family.”

On what the Patriot family stands for:

“We play by the rules, we play hard and we prepare hard. The work ethic of our team and preparation is like no other in my opinion and we try to make our fans in America proud.”
