The 1993 Houston Oilers Chronicled on NFL Network’s ‘A Football Life’ Tuesday, December 10 at 9:00 PM ET

“There were more good players here than anywhere I’ve been. And I’ve been on three Super Bowl teams.” – Buddy Ryan

Profiles the Tumultuous 1993 Season & Features Interviews with Oiler Players, Coaches & Front Office Staff 

Warren Moon, Haywood Jeffires & Sean Jones In-Studio for ‘A Football Life: Backstory’ at 10:00 PM ET 

Entering the 1993 NFL season, the Houston Oilers were considered Super Bowl favorites by many. Despite a loss in the 1992 AFC Wild Card Game to the Buffalo Bills, the Oilers had made the playoffs for six consecutive seasons and had added Super Bowl-winning defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan to an offense that led the league in passing each of the previous three seasons. Yet instead of a run to a Super Bowl title, the 1993 season was filled with turmoil, dysfunction and heartbreak.

NFL Network’s two-time Emmy-nominated series A Football Life continues Tuesday, December 10 at 9:00 PM ET with Houston ’93: A Football Life. The one-hour documentary chronicles the up-and-down season for the 1993 AFC Central division champions, and features interviews with several players, coaches and front office staff.

NFL Network’s ‘A Football Life’ Examines ‘The Great Wall of Dallas’ Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 9:00 PM ET

Profile of the Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line from Early 1990s

“This line was the best example of what five, six men working together can accomplish in the NFL: you can win it all.” – Jerry Jones 

In the early 1990s, the Dallas Cowboys won three Super Bowl championships in four years, with Hall of Famers Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin leading the way. However, it was six offensive linemen – none of which were drafted higher than the third round – who paved the way for those teams and collectively became one of the greatest offensive line units in NFL history.

NFL Network’s two-time Emmy-nominated series A Football Life continues Tuesday, December 3 at 9:00 PM ET with The Great Wall of Dallas: A Football Life, which profiles the Cowboys’ offensive line from the early 1990s. Comprised of tackles Mark Tuinei and Erik Williams, guards Nate Newton and Kevin Gogan, center Mark Stepnoski, and guard/center John Gesek, the “Great Wall of Dallas” was an intimidating force that led the Cowboys to big wins and memorable moments, while also skirting on the edge of recklessness, arrogance and controversy.

Invention of The Forward Pass Examined on NFL Network’s ‘A Football Life’ Tuesday, November 19 at 9:00 PM ET

Two-Time Emmy-Nominated Series Continues Tuesday, November 19 at 9:00 PM ET 

Features Interviews with Dan Fouts, Joe Namath, Roger Staubach, Mike Martz, Chuck Klosterman & More

What do Teddy Roosevelt, Knute Rockne, George Carlin, the Atomic Bomb, the Hail Mary Prayer, Marcia Brady’s broken nose and “American Pie” all have in common? The Forward Pass.

As ubiquitous as it is now, throwing the football was once unimaginable. For the first four decades of football’s existence, the Forward Pass was illegal. However, with rising safety concerns surrounding the game of football, President Roosevelt intervened. It was his demand that rules makers open up the game by legalizing the Forward Pass that saved football from abolition and created the sport we love.
