List Rules Movies must feature American Football prominently

Personally, I think the best football movie ever made is Disney's 2000 release REMEMBER THE TITANS. Also at #2 is the Sherwood Pictures theatrical debut film from 2006 FACING THE GIANTS is also a great movie along with #3 WE ARE MARSHALL and #4 the football classic about Notre Dame, RUDY.
