Audio/visual unsynchronised 

A few times during the movie when Reno yells at Jack, you can see Kurt Russell is saying "fuck" but his word is over-dubbed to the common fall-back words like "freak", "friggin", and "fool". Any use of the word "fuck" more than once would turn the film into an R-rated picture.

During the final game, when Robin Williams character is shown 1-on-1 with the defender before the play, they are on Hightower's left, but whenever they show Jack running down the field, he is coming form Kurt Russell's right off the line of scrimmage.

In the opening scene, which shows Reno throwing the pass to Jack, when Jack says,"His knee is smashed, his career is over", it shows Reno on the ground in pain holding his right knee. But before they replay the game, in the locker room, it shows Reno injecting his left knee.

The mascot throws a bucket of paint over Gigi's green dress in the nightclub, a uniform amount about a foot above & below her waist. When she is shown minutes later, the pattern of paint on her dress is completely different.

The last pass Reno throws to Jack is shown in the air a couple of times and is very wobbly. Just before it falls into Jack's hands, it's a perfect spiral.

Factual errors 

When Jack and Reno arrive at the house for their dinner with Elly and Gigi, one of the boys on the stoop says that Atlanta and Minnesota, the two teams facing off on "Monday Night Football," have "lost 17 straight games between them." Later, after Jack is caught watching the game during dinner, just before throwing him out Elly admonishes him that the two teams are "0-and-17 between them!" As of 1985, when the film is set, the NFL schedule did not include a bye week; both teams would have played the same number of games at any point during the season. As such their combined record cannot have added up to an odd number.

(Incidentally, Atlanta and Minnesota did play each other in 1985, albeit not on "Monday Night Football;" the Falcons beat the Vikings 14-13 on Sunday, December 15, 1985, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. The Falcons entered the game with a 2-12 record, the Vikings were 7-7, giving them a combined record of 9-19. The game footage seen in the film is likely from the teams' September 16, 1984 (also a Sunday) matchup at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, which the Vikings won 27-20.)

Miscellaneous 

Even before bye weeks, Atlanta and Minnesota could conceivably have lost 17 games (or been 0-17) between them. Say it's Week 9 of the NFL season during the movie, and they're each 0-8 going in. Now suppose Minnesota lost the last game of the preceding season (hence, a 9-game losing streak), while Atlanta won theirs. The two teams would still have lost their last 17 games between them, the Vikings losing their last 9 games, and the Falcons losing their last 8.

Revealing mistakes 

When Jack catches the ball on the final play, the ref signals "touchdown" twice. Once when Jack catches the ball, and again when he actually crosses the goal line.
