NFL 2K2 is an American football game released as part of the 2K series of games. Originally released for the Sega Dreamcast, it was later ported to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox - the first NFL 2K game to do so. All future entries in the series would be on non-Sega platforms.

Visual Concepts had at one point planned to include Dreamcast Microphone support, allowing for voice chat over the internet[12], but the feature did not materialise.

In Japan, this game (alongside others in the 2K2 line) was released exclusively through Dreamcast Direct.
