Backyard Football Game is a sports clip used in the pilot episode of America's Funniest Home Videos. It finished in 3rd place.


Chris Van Blurkham was filming a backyard football game that his friends were playing. They were having a good time — even by gang tackling a little guy. Then a few minutes later, one them makes a fumble recovery, breaks a tackle and runs towards a fence. As he jumps, he breaks a part of the fence down. He gets up and walks carefully on the broken part of the fence and back into the backyard before he spikes the ball, for which he scored a touchdown.
