Miracle at the New Meadowlands voted the greatest NFL play of all time

With the actual, NCAA men's college basketball bracket coming complete, it's time for the rest of the novelty brackets out there to wind down as well.

With the actual, NCAA men's college basketball bracket coming complete, it's time for the rest of the novelty brackets out there to wind down as well.

NFL.com's Bracketology has been determining the greatest NFL play of all time from a pool of 64. After weeks of debate, the final round came down to Steve Young's unstoppable run through the Vikings' defense on his way to the 1988 Super Bowl, and a play Eagles fans are probably more familiar with.

On its way to immortality, Miracle at the New Meadowlands outvoted Troy Polamalu's flying tackle, Dwight Clark's "The Catch" in the 1982 NFC Championship, Barry Sanders turning the Patriots' D into hamburger meat, Billy "White Shoes" Johnson's hail mary catch to beat the 49ers, and a young Michael Vick evading tackles to score against the Vikings.
