Friday Night Lights

Continuity mistake: The sign says it is 3rd down with 10 yards to go. Announcer says the play went for 6 yards, but the sign now reads 4th down and 8 yards to go instead of 4 yards to go. (01:33:40)

Continuity mistake: When Miles cleans out his locker he stuffs his "dominator" white towel in the front of his pants. A few shots later after he says "play your ass off, win state, be perfect, all that sh*t" he turns around and faces the camera. The towel is no longer there. A few shots later when he is shown going to his car the towel is once again tucked in the front of his pants. (01:10:25)

Continuity mistake: The QB drops back on 3rd down from the 15 yard line and is sacked, probably between the 20 and 25 yard line. Following that play the sign shows that it is now 4th down with the ball on the 8 yard line. (01:41:15)

Continuity mistake: During half time of the championship game Coach is telling the team to keep Boobie Miles in their hearts and it shows a close up of Boobie the actor and the actual real life Boobie Miles standing right next to each other, but in the very next shot they are standing much farther apart.

Continuity mistake: In the main play of the entire game, it is supposedly starting at the 8 yard line, yet you can see the 30 yard line marker in the background as the RB gets the ball. (01:43:15)

Continuity mistake: After the big hit on the QB in the final drive, the ball is snapped and a receiver takes off. He takes two steps and is passing the 30 yard line marker. The offensive line is in the background. A spilt second later they show a wide angle shot and the offensive line is holding its ground at the 48 yard line. This wide receiver taking off and the remainder of the play must have been shot at different times. (01:40:05)

Continuity mistake: When the QB is standing on the 25-yard line and completes a pass to the 12-yard line, in the very next play the QB passes the ball from the 36-yard line to the 20-yard line. (00:56:40)

Continuity mistake: When Boobie Miles (star running back) is injured, he is hit high from his left, and low from his right. You see his right knee injured (with the snapping sound) as it is extended. However, when the camera shot changes, he is grabbing his left knee, and anytime it shows him from that point on, his left knee has the brace, is being worked on, etc. (00:30:40)

Continuity mistake: When Boobie gets in the car after clearing out his locker the car window is very dirty and spotted, but a few seconds later the camera shows the window again and it is perfectly clean and spotless. (01:11:45)

Continuity mistake: On Permian's last drive the announcer says they have 75 yards to go. The ball is spotted at the 27 yard line. This would only be 73 yards to go. Announcers are very meticulous about getting the correct numbers in sports in regard to distance, so it's not like they've just rounded it off. (01:38:50)

Continuity mistake: When Boobie Miles receives his diagnosis from the Midland doctor, he gets upset and rips the x-ray film of his injured knee off the wall. In the next shot, he rips it down again.

Continuity mistake: During the playoffs, Carter's helmet is matched up with a helmet that has a "W" logo. But when they are actually playing in the game, they are wearing helmets with a longhorn logo.

Continuity mistake: On the second to last play of the championship game, the coach calls for an injured Don Billingsley to run the football on fourth down because Carter was going to play a prevent defense due to the fact that Permian were supposedly out of running backs due to injuries. But Chris Comer, another running back who was supposedly knocked silly a couple of plays before, was on the field for that play as well.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Boobie Miles walks into the locker room to get his stuff from his locker, his knee brace is on the left leg. In the next shot the brace is on his right leg. In the next shot the brace is on his left leg again as he walks out of the locker room.
