NFC Title Games from 1992, 1993 and 1994

This rivalry is so good it may be considered underrated. The two best teams in the NFL going at it for three straight epic contests, you’ve got to add these games to the collection.

I mean who doesn’t love and intro like this.

The Steel Curtain Collection

In the NFL/YouTube classics collection you will not find one classic featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers from the 1970’s. You can’t tell the story of the NFL without the Steelers of the 70’s.

I’d add Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XIII and Super Bowl XIV. Those three games defined that team.

Walter Payton Collection

Possibly the greatest running back ever and the game where he breaks Jim Brown’s record isn’t even on the list? What kind of monsters are you?

The NFC: 1980s

Possibly one of the greatest eras for the NFC and just a few games feature that Bears, Giants, Redskins and 49ers. One game I’d add for sure is the 1983 NFC Championship between Washington and San Francisco, maybe one of the most thrilling title games ever. You could eventually add others but this classic is first on this list. 

There you have it, my list of the 72 games that the NFL should put on the their NFL/YouTube channel. If you’re going to tell the story of the NFL, these are the games you do it with.

If I’m missing any feel free to share, comment and add your own.
