Music City Miracle in Tough Fourth-Round Matchup in NFL Bracketology

Posted Apr 1, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Music City Miracle made it to NFL Bracketology’s round of eight over the weekend but is in a tough matchup to see which play will go to the next round.

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.

The Music City Miracle received a No. 1 seed, and the other three No. 1 seeds also remain, but the play began Monday with a large deficit in votes from fans.

Voting in this round is scheduled to last through Tuesday, April 2.

The Music City Miracle, arguably the most famous and pivotal play in franchise history, is a kickoff return 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 play is matched against the 67-yard “beast mode” touchdown run by Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch against New Orleans in the Wild Card round after the 2010 season. Lynch ran through tacklers and delivered a crushing stiff arm in putting the Seahawks up 41-30 with 3:22 remaining. Seattle won 41-36 in the game that occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Music City Miracle.

The Music City Miracle received 45,338 votes from fans to beat a pass by Minnesota QB Daunte Culpepper that Randy Moss caught 44 yards down field and lateralled to Moe Williams, who streaked 15 yards untouched for a touchdown on Oct. 19, 2003. The Minnesota play received 31,892 votes.
