Whether you have NFL Stats or not, the Super Bowl has some of the most exciting moments in sports history. Many times, the game can come down to one or two crucial moments. Here’s a look at some of the best Super Bowl moments in the past few decades.

#1 Super Bowl XLIX, 2015

The Seattle Seahawks, down by four are on the goal line with only 26 seconds left to try and beat Tom Brady and the Patriots. At the time, it made perfect sense to hand the ball off the running back Marshawn Lynch, who had been in beast mode all season. Maybe the Seahawks wanted to give something the Patriots weren’t expecting. 

What would go down in one of the craziest play calls in NFL history, the Seahawks decided to pass. Russell Wilson gets picked off in the throw attempt to Ricardo Lockette by rookie Patriots Malcolm Butler, for a heartbreaking loss for the Seahawks and Tom Brady’s 4th Super Bowl ring. 

#2 Super Bowl XLII, 2008

The New England Patriots strut into this game 16-0, aiming to become the first time to have an undefeated season since the 1972 Miami Dolphins. With only two minutes to go and the game on the line, Eli Manning has the ball back in his hands. Manning escapes rushing pressure, launches the ball to Davis Tyree, who makes that catch. 

An amazing, one-handed grab on the side of his helmet for 32 yards on a third and five drive. This catch by Tyree will go down as one of the most memorable and greatest catches in Super Bowl history. 

A few plays later, Manning finds Plaxico Burress in the endzone for the game-winning touchdown. Manning and the New York Giants beat the previously unbeaten New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLII. 

#3 Super Bowl XXXIV, 2000

The Tennessee Titans, coming back from being down 16 points to the St. Louis Rams, are driving down the field for a potential game-tying touchdown to take the game into overtime. At the Rams 10 yard line with only six seconds on the clock, Steve McNair quickly gets the ball out of his hands. 

He finds receiver Kevin Dyson at the three-yard line. Rams linebacker Mike Jones comes up with one of the most clutch tackles of his career, stopping Dyson just short of the goal line. The Tennessee Titans have a heartbreaking loss by just one single yard, and the Rams hang on for a stunning win. 

#4 Super Bowl LI, 2017

The comeback game in all of history for the New England Patriots. The Patriots down 28-3 in the 3rd quarter to the Atlanta Falcons, miraculously have turned things around. With three and a half minutes left in the game, down by eight on their own 9-yard line, Tom Brady has a long way to go if he wants a fighting chance. 

Slowly but surely getting upfield, but looks like he might get picked off. Brady throws a pass intended for Julian Edelman, the ball is batted in the air by Falcons Robert Alford but lands into the lap of Edelman after bouncing off Alfords shoe. 

With a diving effort by Edelman, even managing to juggle the ball without ever losing control or letting it hit the ground, the Patriots gained a much-needed 23 yards. The Patriots go on to tie the game with a touchdown, and a successful two-point conversion to send the game into overtime. 

Tom Brady and the Patriots end up winning in overtime for Tom Brady’s 5th Super Bowl ring, much credit to not only Edlemans heroic catch but to his playmaking all game. 

#5 Super Bowl XLI, 2007

Devin Hester, the Chicago Bears great and one of the best returners in the history of the NFL makes one of the most famous plays in Super Bowl History. Opening kickoff against the Indianapolis Colts, Hester runs for 92 yards to open up Super Bowl XLI and stun the world watching. 

Even more amazing is that Hester was just a rookie at the time, previously having 6 return scores in his first season with the Bears, would add another 6 his sophomore season. 

Unfortunately, even with Hester’s electric start, the Bears go on to lose 29-17 to the Colts. Hester to this day still holds the NFL record with 14 punt returns for touchdowns and five touchdowns on kickoff returns.
