Top 10 Best Super Bowls of All TimeThe Super Bowl isn't just about football. Sure, the game is the main attraction, but it's the hype, the history, and those electric moments that make the Super Bowl unforgettable. From last-second touchdowns to unbelievable comebacks, some Super Bowls become legendary. We're talking about those match-ups that go down in football lore.
You've seen the highlights, heard the stories, and maybe even witnessed a few epic Super Bowls yourself. But when it comes to declaring the best of the best, it's time to hear your voice! We're taking a look at the Super Bowls that left everyone on the edge of their seats, and asking you to cast your vote.
What really makes this Super Bowl great is that it's the definition of you can win no matter what the odds are. The Giants not clinching the NFC East but then narrowly escaping every playoff game is just perfect. Eli narrowly escaping a third-down sack at the 50-yard line to complete the now well-known Helmet Catch to David Tyree was the best moment in football and probably one of the top ten sports moments.
And if all the hate the Pats got today was happening as frequently as when the Pats lost then, this would be more appreciated than it is already. The Giants could really use some help today though, lol.
I'm pretty young, 11 to be exact. I was born in January 2008 and was brought out of the hospital on February 3rd, the same day this Super Bowl happened. The Giants won the Super Bowl on the day I was brought out of the hospital. My parents viewed it as a miracle, and it might be. I don't know.
It may have been low scoring, but that game was entertaining. Back and forth, and when the Pats scored, people thought 19-0 would happen. But the best catch in NFL history, the Tyree catch, and the Burress touchdown to take the lead with the crowd roaring made this game incredible. No doubt, the best Super Bowl of all time!
At least the Patriots and Giants game was well-played. The Falcons just gave up after halftime and gave the Patriots a free win. All they had to do was run the ball, but instead, they threw three incomplete passes and wasted maybe 10 seconds. If they had just done that, they would have won. Most overrated Super Bowl in history.
I watched this game because I needed the Patriots to win (the Falcons crushed the Packers in the NFC Championship, and I wanted revenge). As Atlanta surged to a 28-3 lead, I oddly thought the Patriots still had a chance. I turned out to be right. Tom Brady made the greatest comeback in NFL history, to somehow win in overtime 34-28.
The first Super Bowl in overtime was as good as it sounds. Brady's 466 passing yards led to the greatest comeback in NFL history, and the Julian Edelman catch was one of the best ever. Also, bonus points for flying Gaga.
I'd put this game above any other. It was exciting from start to finish. You had James Harrison make the greatest play in Super Bowl history with his pick-six to take a 17-7 lead at the end of the half. Arizona came back to take the lead with an incredible 64-yard catch and run by Fitzgerald, and a safety on the Steelers looked to be the end of it. However, the Steelers' defense came up clutch to give Roethlisberger one final chance, which he took advantage of by driving down the field and throwing the best throw in Super Bowl history, followed by the best catch in Super Bowl history. A fumble by Warner on the next drive locked up the Steelers' record 6th Super Bowl victory and shut down the upset Cardinals, who miraculously made the playoffs with a 9-7 record.
When you take into account the aesthetics of the game, no Super Bowl has been a more exciting viewing experience than Super Bowl 43. Seeing the Undefeated Pats go down was sweet, but the numerous big plays at big moments really put this Super Bowl above all others.
This game had emotion and controversy. I loved seeing Richard Sherman lose, and I also loved the great back-and-forth action. Malcolm Butler is my hero, and although I loved 51, this will always be THE Super Bowl to me.
Best game ever from start to finish with the most dramatic play ever at the end. Also featured two teams with potential dynasty implications and possibly two of the best teams to meet in the Super Bowl. Unquestionably the best.
This is the best Super Bowl game ever, and this is said by a Seahawks fan. I don't know why you guys think the Steelers vs. Seahawks game was better, where the Seahawks got screwed by officiating.
Great game, the Eagles didn't even give the refs or the patriots a chance to rig the game, The Eagles even won with a backup quarterback.
Over 1,100 yards of total offense. Eagles backup Nick Foles outshoots the greatest QB of all time, Tom Brady. Going for his 6th Super Bowl ring, Brady puts together the only 500-yard passing performance in playoff history, let alone the Super Bowl, and he still comes up short. Brandon Graham causes Brady to fumble in the final two minutes when most people were figuring he was going to complete yet another Super Bowl-winning drive. This has got to be up there with the Giants beating the Patriots in Super Bowl 42 as the biggest upset ever. The Eagles finally win a Super Bowl after decades of mediocrity... FLY EAGLES FLY. This has got to be one of the best football games ever played. 74 points combined by the two teams. I can't recall more than two drives combined where the teams didn't score!
A great Super Bowl. It might have had a different ending had the referee not thrown the flag on Benny Barnes after Lynn Swann tripped him. The ball was uncatchable, too.
Watching the game as I type this. I'm not even past halftime, and I can say this is one of the best already!
This game started to get out of hand, but the Dallas Cowboys came back but still lost to the Steelers.
This game was close and was in the end decided by a spot of a ball.
My heart is broken.
One yard short. #4
Not only the greatest Super Bowl of all time but the greatest coaching job of all time. For Parcells and his protege Belichick to go to Candlestick and defeat the mighty two-time defending Super Bowl champion San Francisco Forty Niners on five field goals and a fake punt, then defeat the Bills' K-Gun offense that just demolished the Raiders 51-3 a week before, all with a journeyman quarterback and running back, is nothing short of the greatest coaching performance of all time.
Decided by 1 point, Persian Gulf War, Whitney Houston's anthem, red, white, and blue teams, no turnovers, dramatic finish by two NFL powers in that era. No flukes or irrelevant franchises without history and fan base like the Titans, Panthers.
The game was great and came down to a field goal, which was missed! And the Giants won by a point.
Super Bowl III is the game that made the Super Bowl what it is today.
The only one that really matters.
It should be in the top 5!
Though the score was kind of lopsided, it really was deceiving. The Saints were actually down at halftime. It was a thriller. Had the Saints failed to recover the onside kick, maybe it would've been lower. But this was interesting and one that will be remembered as such.
Sean Payton calls an on-side kick to begin the second half. That was the game right there. If the Saints hadn't recovered, game over. Rank this game MUCH higher.
This game would've been Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl victory, but instead, he made a late mistake, and it cost him.
Too bad the Bengals were great at the same time Montana was great. Wish the Bengals had pulled it out!
#12 because it was old? This deserves to be in the top 3, amazing game and amazing comeback. This Super Bowl is better than SB LI.
This game had another great finish and the best final drive. And the 49ers came out on top.
The one that made the others possible!
Wrong team won again, but still, probably the best Super Bowl ever.
Back and forth lead changes and big plays. A stupid kicker blows the game after a great Panthers late comeback.
The game was an old shootout, and the New England Patriots won Super Bowl 38.
Wasn't this the lights out game?
This should be much higher.
It had Samurai Mike and Sweetness. What more do you want?
At the time, the Rams were the team that I hated the most, and the Patriots are currently my second favorite team, next to the Bucs.
As much as Tom Brady is overrated, he played well in this game. And the Patriots won the first Super Bowl after 9/11.
Elway's dive remains one of the greatest moments ever in a sports game.
Seeing Joe Burrow for the first time in the big game, and he looked good. Unfortunately for him, he had to play Aaron Donald.
Ben Roethlisberger's ball actually barely touched the goal line. Not by much, but that's all that's required for a touchdown. The Seahawks did not get "screwed". They got beat by the better team.
