The Top TenXW

1Mike Jones' "The Tackle"/St. Louis Rams win Super Bowl

Mike Jones tackled Kevin Dyson on the one yard line as the clock ran out in Super Bowl 34. "The Greatest Show on Turf" St. Louis Rams became Superbowl Champions. - GunsnJets

2Joe Namath's Guarantee

This is the moment that made the NFL what it is. It's the single most influential on-field moment in the history of the NFL.

Also, people tend to forget how great the Colts were that season. Go look at the season stats and game recaps for the Colts - they were TOTALLY dominant that year. I personally think that the 1968 Colts were one of the top 7-8 teams ever.

Joe Namath Guaranteed the Jets Super Bowl Victory over the Baltimore Colts. The AFL had beaten the NFL in possibly the biggest upset in football history. - GunsnJets

Namath is the greatest QB of Alabama, and Football history!
