NFL history is full of great moments. Perhaps no other sports league produces nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat action with such regularity.
The greatest moments in NFL history occurred on a variety of play types, many of them receptions. One factor they have in common is that all of them are spectacular in their athletic difficulty. Other than that, their individual X-factors vary.
The majority resulted in game-altering touchdowns. Some define a player's career, while others placed an established star in the realm of immortality. Many of them occurred on the NFL's biggest stage—the Super Bowl. Most of them occurred at critical junctures in games. A few occurred between bitter rivals in the most emotionally charged games of all time.
Some of them are simply jaw-dropping "did you just see that??" type of grabs. A select few changed not only the course of games but produced seismic shifts in the balance of power, leading to dynasties lasting for decades to come.
