VOTE: Greatest ever Super Bowl: Which one is your favourite?
What’s Your Super Bowl?
Maybe the Super Bowl LIV battle involving the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs – live on Sky Sports Action from 10pm on Sunday, February two – ends up in the annals of history as the Best?
For now, we have picked out or top 10, also want you to vote for your favorite from this bunch beneath (see foot of the page).
But first, a few honourable mentions for those that didn’t quite make the cut…
Super Bowl XXIII: Perhaps not really the impressive, but certainly the most memorable, of the 49ers’ five Super Bowl wins since Joe Montana marched them and toward John Candy.
Super Bowl XLVII: Today it is to the Niners’ first-ever Super Bowl loss, using Baltimore Ravens head coach John becoming the better of Jim in the’struggle of the brother’. A blackout was at the New Orleans Superdome, since San Francisco came back to gain against a 28-6 third-quarter deficit that is large, adding to the drama. Nevertheless, it was not meant to be.
Super Bowl XXXIV: The Tennessee Titans are ceased to lose to the’Greatest Show on Turf’ St Louis Rams, after being recovered from a deficit.
The biggest upset in Super Bowl history just just sneaks largely because of the character of Super Bowl III – the underdog New York Jets beating the Baltimore Colts 16-7.
Despite two significant defeats to the American Football League – which had combined with all the NFL – at the first two Super Bowls, Jets quarterback Joe Namath’guaranteed’ success, and true to his word, also given it.
Possibly one of the greatest disappointments in game, let alone only the Super Bowl era, as poor old Buffalo Bills Scott Norwood, kicker, missed the game-winning field goal from 47 yards as time expired.
The Bills’ 20-19 defeat on the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXV was the first of four straight defeats at the greatest game of them , but has been the toughest of the lot to take – a certain defensive coordinator named Bill Belichick masterminding that the Giants’ victory on the best offense in football.
You might be wondering why such a low ranking for last year’s stunning Super Bowl LII shootout between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots – a number on this list of several entries for them.
Several records were set, including most yards gained in an NFL game by both teams combined (1,151), fewest punts from teams at a Super Bowl (one), and many points scored with a Super Bowl losing team (33), however it was the absence of defense which harm this sport, until Brandon Graham stepped up with the play that defined it, strip-sacking Tom Brady in the fourth quarter to bring the Vince Lombardi trophy back to Philadelphia for the first time.
Considering that the upward trajectory that both Belichick and Tom Brady’s careers have taken because, it’s easy to forget that the Patriots were 14-point underdogs for Super Bowl XXXVI, when they were the next team tasked with taking about the’Greatest Show on Turf’ after the Rams’ win over the Tennessee Titans two years prior.
Before the Rams eventually found some form to tie up the game at 17 belichick’s Pats confined the volatile St Louis crime. But step forward Adam Vinatieri, who nailed a game-winning kick from 48 yards out to make New England the first of the six tournament titles.
Do not be distracted purely by the value of Denver Broncos’ John Elway earning a ring aged 37, also in the fourth effort, Super Bowl XXXII has been a game that is fantastic too.
It had just two quarterbacks on very top of the game going toe to toe, with Elway up against Brett Favre Green Bay Packers, and the champions. Though it was actually – Terrell Davis putting in an MVP-worthy three-touchdown performance to find the Broncos into a 31-24 triumph.
One for the footballing purists, Super Bowl XIII is considered by many to be the finest of all time, performed between the game’s best franchises, led by quarterbacks, and it had been also.
The Pittsburgh Steelers extended out a 35-17 lead in the fourth quarter as a result of a four-touchdown overhaul operation by Terry Bradshaw, but Roger Staubach threw a second and third of his own to bring the Dallas Cowboys back within four weeks, but Pittsburgh maintained on, getting the better of the defending winners Dallas for the second time in 3 years.
Another Steelers victory, this person in Super Bowl XLIII, seeing them secure a record sixth title. And performed in the most striking of fashion with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger locating Santonio Holmes in the back of the end zone to the game-winning touchdown with seconds remaining.
A monster two-touchdown along with 127-yard outing by wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald, had helped the Arizona Cardinals conquer a deficit in their first-ever Super Bowl appearance before their hearts broke.
Eli Manning and co hadn’t read the script, although it was supposed to become a procession, since the 16-0 Patriots took at Super Bowl XLII.
Within a ultra-tight, low-scoring affair, his team marched down the field – thanks in part to this David Tyree grab – for the score to Plaxico Burress. The Patriots, and the seeing universe, were left amazed by what they seen.
Maybe it doesn’t get our No 1 place as the biggest ever, but Super Bowl LI certainly featured the best comeback ever, since the Patriots defeated a enormous 28-3 deficit in the third quarter to tie the match with the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth and then win the first Super Bowl overtime.
It required the Patriots’till the first half’s final two seconds to enroll their first points although the Atlanta crime scored three touchdowns. Then they extended in the third quarter, ahead came came Brady! Two departure TDs from No 12, plus a James White jog – along with a few clutch two-point conversions – helped the team tie things prior to devoting a stunning Super Bowl title with the following White TD in childbirth.
Following yet another to the team, along with their own Super Bowl XLII defeat the Giants four years Super Bowl XLIX also seemed to be slipping out of the catch of New England. Another star catch, that from Jermaine Kearse, aided the Seattle Seahawks achieve the target line to spare.
Trailing by four, surely all of the Seahawks had to do was provide the ball ‘Beast Mode’ running back, Marshawn Lynch, to punch it in from a yard out? Nope. In one of the most crazy play-calls in soccer history, Seattle chose to maneuver and rookie Malcolm Butler picked off quarterback Russell Wilson in this crazy finish and also our # 1 Super Bowl.
