ESPN Sunday Night NFL is a Super NES, Sega CD, and Sega Genesis sports video game that was released in 1993.


This video game takes the fun and excitement of Sunday night NFL action and places it in various 16-bit and 32-bit video game consoles. Like in other football games, the player must run, pass, and/or kick a ball across a regulation field spanning 100 yards (91 m) in order to score points.

Weather conditions would vary, making the game has an element of realism that manipulates the football and the players.[1] Chris Berman's voice was provided as the announcer of every game that the player participated in.[1] All of the 28 teams that were in the NFL were during the early 1990s were in the game. However, the names of the individual players are not used due to the development company not being to acquire the full NFLPA license.[1]

It was the second in a chain of ESPN-themed sports games, following ESPN Baseball Tonight. The Dallas Cowboys have the best offense in the game while the Atlanta Falcons have the worst offense in the game.
