Yes  the "Miami Epic"  as they call it came in #4 overall.      But not the Rams/Browns game.  It was Top 100...#32 in fact, but not Top 12

Maybe near #12 DAL at SF the Montana to Clark "the catch" game ?

Oh and maybe the OAK in PIT "IMMACULATE DECEPTION" game ? The ball was deflected making it an incomplete pass -and- it did touch the ground making it incomplete -but-. no camera caught that.  Madden and the Raiders got robbed !

Today they have way more camera angles plus Franco will not directly answer the question.

Along the classic games list maybe #25 or so on FS1 now the 1995 Aikman at Young NFC playoff game the winner goes to the SB to bash SD who upset PIT to get there.

The NFC team had won the last 10 super bowls......ahhhh the good Ol' games.

The Catch   #2 on the list.   Check.

The Immaculate Reception didn't quite make the cut, it was like #12 or 14....still good guess.

Wow the catch #2 some real Montana love.

Speaking of which how about the CINCI/SF SB 16 game where during the final drive in the huddle Montana said to his teammates "look there's John Candy".......true story.

.......* Well the John Candy bowl didn't make the top 100 but SF was in 12 many because of Joe Cool Montana.

The CLE BROWNS mentioned in games #11, 22 (both vs DEN), 71, 80, 96 but only two as the winning team #32 and#80 Bernie Kosar's  

32 December 24, 1950 CLE RAM 1950 NFL Championship Browns win championship in first NFL season
80 January 3, 1987 CLE NYJ 1986 AFC Divisional Marathon by the Lake Watch on YouTube

That's way too many to name, I'll go with the most obvious. 

- The "Immaculate Reception" Oakland-Pgh game. 

- The Bills-Oilers div playoff game of the 90's, where Bill came back from 33 points down. 

- The 9rs-Dallas p/o game with the "catch."

- The "Drive" game, Cleveland-Denver. 

- The Pgh-Balt AFCC game. 

- A few of the Colts-Pats games with Manning and Brady. 

- The SB Bills v. Giants.

- The NYG-9ers NFCC game when Montana got knocked out of the game. 

- The Dallas-Steelers SBs of the 70's. 

- Bears-Fins 1985 MNF game.

- Pats-ATL SB.

Well, I had already given the answers, but I appreciate the effort.  Highlighted/Bold are ones you got right.   (not that any of them are "wrong")
