Super Bowl XXXVI
In 2002, quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots squeaked by quarterback Kurt Warner and his St. Louis Rams "Greatest Show on Turf" offense, in a 20-17 nail-biter. Brady was named game MVP, an award the all-time great has received three times in his career.
Super Bowl XXXII
After blowout losses in their four previous Super Bowl appearances, the Broncos returned to glory in 1998, besting the Packers 31-24. Quarterback John Elway and lightning-quick running back Terrell Davis, who claimed MVP, led the way for Denver.
Super Bowl III
In a quarterback matchup for the ages, “Broadway Joe” Namath led the New York Jets past Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts, securing the 1969 NFL title with a 16-7 win, and earning himself an MVP trophy in the process.
Super Bowl XXV
The state of New York ruled 1991’s Super Bowl, as the Giants faced off against upstate rivals the Bills. Directed by quarterback Jim Kelly, Buffalo’s no-huddle offense excelled, but it just wasn’t enough. A last-second field goal attempt sailed wide right, giving Bill Parcells’ Giants the title, 20-19.
Super Bowl XLII
In one of the biggest upsets in the history of pro sports, 2008’s title game saw Eli Manning steer his Giants past Tom Brady and the Patriots, earning an MVP award in the process. New York’s surprise 17-14 win is regarded by many as the best Super Bowl game ever.
