Continuity mistake: In the final game against Texas, the Sharks open the game with the kickoff. The other team's returner 29 (eye shield and long-sleeve underwear) catches the ball, but 20 (no eye shield and short-sleeve underwear) jumps a pile of players. Then 29 makes the Sharks kicker miss a tackle, and you see 20 run the ball again. Finally it's 29 who scores on the return.
Continuity mistake: In the late fourth quarter of the last game at the end of the movie, the score is 35-31. Through Oliver Stone's quick shot to shot movie style, Willie Beamin is shown throwing up in a trashcan and the score in the upper-left corner of the screen reads 17-14.
Continuity mistake: In the final game (at Texas Stadium in Irving) there are several low angle shots that show the hole in the stadium roof. Throughout the course of the game, the shots show a night sky, then a day sky and back to a night sky, all within the same game.
Continuity mistake: A man on the field has brown eyes, he loses one eye and the eye that is showing on the ground after he lost it it's blue.
Continuity mistake: On the last drive of the game and the penalty is called on No.69, the camera goes from a tight shot to an overhead shot. On the tight shots No.69 does not have his helmet on, on the distant shots, his helmet is back on. This happens numerous times.
Continuity mistake: Before the last play of the game (in the huddle) Jaimie Foxx's right shoulder pad keeps going from in his shirt to out of his shirt.
Tony D'Amato: Now I can't do it for ya, I'm too old. I look around, I see these young faces and I think, I mean, I've made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make. I've pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who's ever loved me. And lately, I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.
