Greatest Superbowl Games

Okay, it’s currently shaping up to be a Patriots Vikings matchup for Superbowl LII, but before we preview potential Superbowl 2018 matchups let’s look back at some of the greatest Superbowl games in recenty history.

Since the first Super Bowl was played in 1967, there have been a lot of great games. With this year’s Super Bowl a little over two weeks away, we decided to give you a list of the top five Super Bowl games in the last 51 years.

  • 5. Super Bowl XXIII
  • San Francisco 49ers 20, Cincinnati Bengals 16

    49ers quarterback Joe Montana showed why he was known as “Joe Cool,” when he led the 49ers on a game-winning drive that ended with a touchdown pass to John Taylor with 34 seconds remaining to give the 49ers their second win over the Bengals in the Super Bowl.

  • 4. Super Bowl XLIX
  • New England Patriots 28, Seattle Seahawks 24

    The Patriots ended their 10 year championship drought with a win over the Seattle Seahawks and their Legion of Boom defense. The game ended up being a classic that will be remembered for Seattle’s decision to pass instead of run at the Patriots’ 1-yard line, which resulted in a Malcolm Butler interception that sealed the win for the Seahawks.

  • 3. Super Bowl XXV
  • New York Giants 20, Buffalo Bills 19

    Bills’ fans will always remember the most heartbreaking loss they ever had. Buffalo had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation but Scott Norwood missed the game-winning field goal, giving the Giants their second Super Bowl win in five years. It was also the first of four straight Super Bowl losses for the Bills.

  • 2. Super Bowl XLII
  • New York Giants 17, New England Patriots 14

    This was probably the most painful loss in Super Bowl history considering what was at stake. The Patriots, who finished the regular season 16-0, were on the verge of becoming the first team in history to finish the season 19-0, and the second to go undefeated in NFL history, but David Tyree’s helmet catch helped the Giants come from behind and win their first Super Bowl since Bill Parcells still roamed the sidelines.

  • 1. Super Bowl LI
  • New England Patriots 34, Atlanta Falcons 28

    The greatest comeback in Super Bowl history deserves the top spot on our list. The Patriots once trailed by 25 pints, but Tom Brady led the team back and tied the game in the final minutes, which forced the first overtime in Super Bowl history.
