The top-five plays include:
"The Sprint Can't-Miss Play of the Year is about giving fans the power to pick their favorite play," said Gaffney. "The fans have responded throughout the season by picking the top plays each week and now they will have the final say as Sprint honors the single best play of the season."
During the season fans cast hundreds of thousands of votes for the Sprint Can't-Miss Play of the Week to select the top play each week of the 2009 NFL regular season. Each week fans voted on NFL Mobile Live and NFL.com and one voter per week won a trip to Super Bowl XLIV. Now the fans' voices will be heard one last time as they will vote for the Sprint Can't-Miss Play of the Year.
The Sprint Can't-Miss Play of the Year will be announced at a private event for Sprint customers on Feb. 2 from south Florida. Eisen will host the event, featuring highlights of the Sprint Can't-Miss Plays of the Week, a roundtable discussion with Can't-Miss Play legends Joe Montana and Dwight Clark from "The Catch" and Franco Harris and Terry Bradshaw from "The Immaculate Reception," plus the live announcement of the Sprint Can't-Miss Play of the Year. The winning play will then be announced to all fans during the Sprint Can't-Miss Plays countdown telecast airing at 4 p.m. (EST) Feb. 6 on NFL Network.
