But when the games are done and that Tryptophan coma is about to kick in, you need a good movie to keep that football tradition going before you pass out on the couch.

Check out the Top 5 Football Movies for Your Tryptophan Coma!

Remember the Titans

Remember the Titans was more than just a movie about football. It was about a community and it’s people coming together, overcoming adversity, and forming a bond that will last a lifetime.

I’m sure there are a few other cliches in there, too.

The only way this movie could have been any better is if Burt Reynold’s rocked his awesome ‘stache.

Oh, and Adam Sandler was in the remake.

Funny guy, that Sandler.


The Blind Side

A really touching movie based on the real life of Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who plays for the Baltimore Ravens.

Kind of makes you want to randomly adopt a homeless teenager, doesn’t it?

No? Aaahhh that’s ok.


Varsity Blues

High school football can be VERY serious in some places, and if you are/were on the team, you know how good life can be.

And “Hero” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] is arguably the most motivating song of all time. Some people may tell you I’m lying, but I once flipped a car over on its side while this song was playing.
