The sweet 16 of BGN's Greatest Football Movie Of All Time Tournament continues today after Invincible easily knocked off We Are Marshall in the previous matchup. Today's should be much more competitive. It features an Adam Sandler movie and a classic that Sandler ended up re-making.

Burt Reynolds stars in the #2 seeded The Longest Yard which was made in the 1974 (we're not talking about the Sandler update) and has been called by Bill Simmons "the greatest football movie ever made."

#3 seeded The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler is a movie I'm sure we've all seen because it's on cable all the time. A football team water boy discovers he has a unique tackling ability and becomes a member of the team.
