NFL Top 10 is a documentary program produced by NFL Films for airing on the NFL Network. The host and narrator is Derrin Horton.

The program counts down 10 items directly related to the players, coaches, and events of the National Football League. Throughout segments on each selection, a wide variety of personalities weigh in on the list. They include former and current NFL players, coaches, national and local sports analysts, and journalists, among others. In addition, multiple guests have appeared on the show, such as David Copperfield, Richard Simmons, and the Sklar brothers. Reruns show on weekdays, while new episodes air on Friday nights.


  • Note: "Single Season Performances" was produced and aired before the 2007 season: it originally ended with Peyton Manning's season of 49 touchdown throws as the #1 season, but in 2008 it was updated, with Manning's 2004 season replaced by Tom Brady's 2007 season of 50 touchdown throws. In 2014 it was updated yet again with Peyton Manning's 55 touchdowns in 2013 voted #1.
  • Note: "Worst Teams" was aired before the 2007 season; it originally ended with the 1976–77 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, losing 26 games over two seasons before the team's first win during the 1977 season. In 2009, it was updated and revised; the 2001 Panthers segment was eliminated and the Detroit Lions becoming the first team to finish 0–16 in a season became the segment's top choice. The 1-15 2007 Miami Dolphins season received mention in the show's "Best Of The Rest" segment.
  • Note: "Players Not in the Hall of Fame" has been updated repeatedly. In 2014 the Andre Reed segment was replaced with Tim Brown and the Cris Carter segment was replaced with Charles Haley. Both Tim Brown and Charles Haley were inducted to Hall of Fame, so a new set of players had to replace them. Brown was replaced by Marvin Harrison, Jerome Bettis was replaced by Tiki Barber, Charles Haley was replaced by Orlando Pace, and Marshall moved up to the #2 spot. In 2016, Harrison, Pace, and Ken Stabler were inducted into the Hall of Fame, meaning the list was updated once again. Stabler was replaced by Cliff Branch, Harrison was replaced by Terrell Davis, and Pace was replaced by Tony Boselli. In 2017, Davis was inducted into the Hall of Fame, so the list will have to be updated again.
  • Note: "Return Aces" was updated in 2011 with the Eric Metcalf segment being replaced with Josh Cribbs.
  • Note: "Left Handed Quarterbacks" was updated in 2012 with the Field segment being replaced with Tim Tebow.
  • Note: "Records That Will Never Be Broken" was aired in 2011 and includes Johnny Unitas' 47 consecutive games with a touchdown; that record was broken in 2012 by Drew Brees and the episode has been updated as a result.
  • Note: "Rookie Seasons" was updated in 2012 with the Best of the Rest segment featuring Cam Newton's 2011 season and the rookie seasons of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson in 2012.
  • Note: "Opening Days" was updated in 2014 with Peyton Manning's 2013 opening day performance against the Baltimore Ravens.
  • Note: "Defenses" was updated with the 2013 Seahawks replacing the Atlanta Falcons Grits Blitz at #5.
  • Note: "Super Bowls" was updated in 2015 with Super Bowl XLVII and Super Bowl XLIX, while Super Bowl LI will be added in a future update.
  • Note: "Comebacks" was updated in 2014 with Andrew Luck's 28-point comeback vs. the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 playoffs, replacing the Lions 1957 playoff game win at #2. It was updated again in 2016 when NFL Network put the 2014 NFC Championship Game at #2. This led to a chain reaction that caused the Anthony Wright section to be cut out entirely. Super Bowl LI will factor into another update.
  • Note: "Overtime Finishes" was updated in 2015 with the amazing Seattle Seahawks comeback in the 2014 NFC Championship Game over The Green Bay Packers at no. 5. It will likely be updated again with Super Bowl LI.
  • Note: "Controversial Calls" was updated in 2016 with the Dez Bryant no-catch game in the 2014 playoffs against the Green Bay Packers replacing Bottle Gate at #9.
  • Note: "Dallas Cowboys" was updated in 2016 with Randy White replacing Drew Pearson at #10, Tony Romo replacing Don Meredith at #9 and, Jason Witten replacing Randy White at #7.
  • Note: "Quarterback Duels" was updated with 2013's 51-48 Peyton Manning/Tony Romo shootout replacing 2009's Matthew Stafford/Brady Quinn game.
