Music City Miracle Advances to Round of 16 in NFL Bracketology

Posted Mar 27, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Music City Miracle protected its No. 1 seed in the first and second rounds of NFL Bracketology and will now compete against another play that involved a lateral and review by officials.

Editors of NFL.com formed a selection committee and built a bracket that matched 64 famous plays in league history so fans could crown “The Greatest Play of All Time” through a series of votes.

All four No. 1 seeds remain as the challenge reaches the round of 16. Voting in this round is scheduled to last until 4 p.m. CT on March 30, when the top eight plays will be determined. The voting for those eight plays will proceed until April 2.

The Music City Miracle, arguably the most famous and pivotal play in franchise history, received 44,912 votes from fans to beat 16th-seeded James Harrison’s 100-yard goal-to-goal interception return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLIII in the first round. Harrison’s play received 25,540 votes.

The kickoff that was fielded by Lorenzo Neal, handed off to Frank Wycheck and lateralled to Kevin Dyson for a 75-yard touchdown return in the Wild Card of the AFC Playoffs gave Tennessee a 22-16 win and catapulted the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV.

The Music City Miracle defeated an eight seed in the second round: a 32-yard TD pass by Brett Favre to Greg Lewis with two seconds remaining that gave Minnesota a 27-24 win against San Francisco on Sept. 27, 2009.

The next matchup is against another pass play involving Minnesota on Oct. 19, 2003 that received a No. 5 seed. Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper scrambles and heaves a deep pass to Randy Moss 44 yards down field. As he is getting tackled by Denver defenders, Moss laterals the ball over his head to Moe Williams, who streaks 15 yards untouched for a touchdown to end the first half with a 14-7 lead in a game the Vikings won 28-20.
