The Most Anticipated Super Bowls in History

55

In just a few days, there will be a brawl — a clash between AFC and NFC champions, LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals. 

Super Bowl LVI will take place in SoFi stadium, the home ground of LA. People are predicting the LA Rams to claim the title. However, the Bengals are in excellent form, and they did knock out the favorites. 

This Super Bowl is highly anticipated. It’s also gaining substantial attention from the betting industry and with the Super Bowl Betting scene so pumped, it does create an opportunity. 

But let’s go down the line and relive the most anticipated Super Bowls in history. There were quite a few exciting matches with dramatic ends, and we’ve collected some of them down below.

Super Bowl LI – New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons dominated the Patriots in the first half. This made several people feel that Brady’s golden years were over and that the Pats were losing their legacy. Not true. 

There must have been a great halftime speech by Coach Belichick because the Pats came out firing in the second half. After falling behind, they roared back to force in the first-ever overtime in Super Bowl history and eventually won it. The victory gave Tom Brady his fifth Super Bowl ring and marked the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Super Bowl XLIX – New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks

The game was thrilling from start to finish. The Patriots, with Tom Brady, were one of the greatest sports franchises at the time, and Russell Wilson was trying to win back-to-back Super Bowls. 

The ending was dramatic as the Seahawks decided to pass rather than hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch, and this back and forth game ended at the goal line. When Malcom Butler intercepted Wilson’s dart in the end zone. This gave Brady and Bill Belichick’s fifth Super Bowl victory together.

Super Bowl XLVII – Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers

In addition to two brothers coaching against each other, a long power outage, and a thrilling 49ers comeback that fell short, this game was nothing but one of the best. In the fourth down play, QB Colin Kaepernick could not connect with wide receiver Michael Crabtree. It was a fitting ending to the careers of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, who played great defense for the Ravens.

Super Bowl XXXII – Denver Broncos vs. Green Bay Packers

In 1987, 1988, and 1990, the Denver Broncos were the target of many jokes after their humiliating three Super Bowl losses. With this win, however, they finally erased their previous reputation. 

Brett Favre’s third touchdown tied the game after the Packers were down by as much as 10. In spite of the migraine, Terrell Davis scored a record-breaking third rushing touchdown and gave the Broncos the exuberating victory and first of their consecutive run. 

Super Bowl III – New York Jets vs. Baltimore Colts

Although the New York Jets were expected to lose by 18 points, Joe Namath’s determination beat the Baltimore Colts. No touchdown was scored by Namath in New York’s 16-7 victory over the Colts, but the game’s MVP award went to him because of his leadership and performance both on and off the field.

Super Bowl XLIII – Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals

Two of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history were played in this game. Before halftime, James Harrison’s length of the field interception return was a huge boost for the Steelers, and he followed up with an amazing touchdown catch. Santonio Holmes pulled down Ben Roethlisberger’s touchdown pass in the corner of the end zone in the last seconds to secure the big win.
