About This Quiz

Football, like every other sport, has its share of well-known coaches, players, and dynasties.

But unlike other sports, in football, we tend to remember famous individual plays just as much as the people who created & executed them.

There's 1972's Immaculate Reception, which propelled Terry Bradshaw and the Pittsburgh Steelers to their first win in the playoffs and helped lead the franchise to multiple championships later that decade. More recently, fans of the New Orleans Saints had their hearts ripped out by the Minnesota Miracle, a last-second bomb to Stefon Diggs that punched the Minnesota Vikings' ticket to the NFC Championship.

And of course, there was the unforgettable Philly Special in Super Bowl LII, which allowed backup quarterback Nick Foles to become the first person in Super Bowl history to both throw and catch a touchdown pass and helped the Philadelphia Eagles win their first championship in over 50 years.

Football plays are so memorable that their lexicon has entered everyday life. We talk about throwing a Hail Mary at work, running out the clock on a decision, or taking the easy way out by throwing a check-down pass. The burning question is, which type of play is your life most like? Select your best answers to the questions below, and we'll tell you!
