Super Bowl III, New York Jets vs. Baltimore Colts - Okay, I know this game was about four hundred years ago, but it is still one of the greatest ever played. Not only was it one of the biggest upsets in professional sports, but it also gave birth to "The Guarantee" when Joe Namath, the quarterback of the Jets, promised a New York Victory.
This game, an AFL-NFL Championship, involved the heavily favored Baltimore Colts, representing the NFL, and the underdog New York Jets, representing the AFL. Played in Miami, four quarters saw Joe Namath throw for 206 yards on his way to being named MVP. Though favored by twenty points in some books, the Colts were unable to even keep the game within one score as the Jets went on to a 16-7 victory.
Super Bowl XXV, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants - For the years prior to this Super Bowl, the NFC had completely dominated championship games; there hadn't been a close Super Bowl in what seemed like forever. But, enter the Buffalo Bills, a team that would lose, but only by one point, making this the closest Super Bowl in history.
A game that took place in the middle of the Gulf War, this game was marked by patriotism, a backup Giant's quarterback, and a last minute field goal that was just a bit outside. As time expired, kicker Scott Norwood became the loneliest guy in the world as he watched his field goal attempt sail wide right. The Giants nearly named him MVP as they claimed a 20-19 victory.
Super Bowl XXXVI, New England Patriots vs. St. Louis Rams - In what is now viewed as the beginning of a dynasty, the New England Patriots claimed their first Super Bowl victory. A season that was marked by a grave reality check, with the attacks on September 11th, it seemed only fitting that a team called the "Patriots" would prevail.
Heavily labeled as an underdog, the New England Patriots jumped to a 17-3 lead over the St. Louis Rams. The Rams, refusing to hand over the championship reigns, tied the score as the game drew to a close. However, as time expired, the greatest clutch kicker in football, Adam Vinatieri, made a game winning 48 yard field goal, showing Scott Norwood exactly how it's done. The Patriots won 20-17.
