Factual errors 

On the night after the Giants game, the characters argue about betting on the final game of the season against the Cowboys. One of the characters mentions that the point spread is one-and-a-half, although this takes place seven weeks before the Cowboys game and there would be no point spread yet.
The Eagles' games mentioned during the film took place during the 2008 season, but they take place out of the order in which they actually occurred.

Revealing mistakes

When Pat goes to see his psychiatrist for the first time and recounts what happens with his wife and it flashbacks to the "incident" when Pat is walking up the stairs and hears his wedding song. He sees underwear, and pieces of clothing and he says he looks at the DVD player and it's playing a CD. When actually the song is playing on a CD player not a DVD player.
