If you owned an NES at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few football games in your collection. Whether it's NFL or NCAA college football, taking the role of quarterback and slinging touchdown passes to teammates is one of the greatest joys a video game can bring you. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best NES football games of all time.
