No one really talks about SuperBowl 34 (XXXIV). It is as if it wasn’t played or was a boring game. It was played and it was anything but boring. Tennessee Titans verses the St. Louis Rams. I think it was one of the greatest SuperBowls ever played. Steve McNair versus Kurt Warner. Neither quarterback threw an interception. Warner passed for over 400 yards and two touchdowns. McNair threw for 214 yards and ran 8 times for 64 yards. Both QB’s had great games. The Titans were trailing 23 – 16 (Update: score was corrected.) The clock was ticking. McNair marched the Titans down to the 16 yard line. No timeouts for the Titans. Last play of the game. McNair avoided the rush and fired a strike to Kevin Dyson, who looked open, wide open, at the three-yard line. The Titans seemed to be about to tie the game. Then, from out of nowhere, Mike Jones tackled Dyson, who desperately tried to extend the ball into the endzone as he fell, but he was short. The tackle was perfect. He wrapped him up around the legs/ankles. Mike Jones makes the stop that crushes the Titans.
So, what do you think is the best play in Superbowl history?
Since a couple of people mentioned David Tyree’s catch and Eli Mannings’ escape, I thought that I would include it here.
Another great play was James Harrison’s run back.
