The Waterboy and Any Given Sunday have officially booked their places in the elite 8 in two very close matchups. Today we've got yet another sweet 16 matchup and one that should be very competitive. Here's the full BGN Greatest Football Movie Of All Time bracket if you need to catch up.

Little Giants - Features Rick Moranis coaching his daughter (Icebox!) and her peewee football team against his brother's elite team (who happens to be the Dallas Cowboys). Your classic loveable underdogs vs the overconfident jerks tale. And there was this brilliant coaching move.

Kid 1: "What are we gonna do, we can't beat the Cowboys!"
Kid 2: "We are gonna run the Annexation of Puerto Rico and win the game"

The Replacements - During a pro football strike, the owners hire substitute players. Gene Hackman is the coach, while Keanu Reeves is the washed up former college star living on a boat and looking for one last shot... There's also a sumo wrestler on the o-line, a British kicker, and a deaf tight end. Oh and apparently when football players go on strike, so do the cheerleaders. This movie may also hold the record for the most music montages in a film.
