A look back at some of the best plays in Super Bowl history (15 Photos)
Super Bowl XLII – After a Larry Fitzgerald TD that gave Arizona a 23-20 lead, the Steelers got the ball back at their own 22-yard line with 2:37 left to play. Ben Roethlisberger drives the Steelers on a eight-plays, 88-yard drive. Big Ben connected with Santonio Holmes’, who was covered by 3 defenders, for the game-winning catch in the back-right corner of the end zone with 35 seconds remaining.
Super Bowl VII – With the Dolphins on the verge of completing their perfect season, Miami kicker Gara Yepremian lined up for a 42 yard field goal. When the kick was blocked, Yepremian picked up the football and threw the worst pass in Super Bowl history which resulted in a pick 6. Miami still won 14-7.
Super Bowl XXXIV – Trailing 23-16 with six seconds left and time for only one last play, Steve McNair caught Kevin Dyson on a slant, but Rams LB Mike Jones made a Super Bowl winning tackle with just one yard to spare.
Super Bowl XXXII – Tied 17-17, John Elway marched the team down the field within striking distance of the end zone. On 3rd and 6, Elway dropped back and decided to run the ball. With a couple of Pakers bearing down on him, he dived into the air getting hit at an angle that spun him horizontally threw the air like the blades on a helicopter, getting the 1st down. The Broncos would go on to score and win the game 31-24.
Super Bowl XVIII – Marcus Allen breaks a 74-yard run that helps secure a 191 yard MVP day, and a 38-9 victory for the Raiders over the Redskins.
Super Bowl XLI – Devin Hester returns the opening kick off 92 yards for the fasted touchdown in Super Bowl history. Bears would go on to lose to the Colts 29-17.
Super Bowl XX – Chicago Bears defensive tackle William “The Refrigerator” Perry took the field with the offense as RB and scored on a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter in rout to a 46-10 win of the Patriots.
Super Bowl XXXVI – After Kurt Warner tied the game 17-17 with 1:30 left, a Tom Brady drive set Adam Vinatieri up for the 48-yard game winning field goal that would launch a football power house that lasts today.
Super Bowl XVII – Trailing Miami 17-13 in the 4th Quarter and facing a 4th and 1 on the 43 yard line, Redskins went to RB John Riggins, who got their first down, broke a tackle and scored the game-winning TD in an eventual 27-17 win.
Super Bowl X – Lynn Swann becomes the first WR to become MVP with 4 catches for 161 Yards including this incredible out stretched grab of a 64 yard bomb from Terry Bradshaw. The Steelers would beat the Cowboys 21-17
Super Bowl XLII – Down 14-10 late vs. the unstoppable 18-0 Patriots, Eli Manning scrambled out of the grip of a sack and heaved a miracle to WR David Tyree who made one of the greatest WTF catches in football history using his head to catch the ball. The Giants would win 17-14.

Super Bowl XXVII – Down 52-17 in the 4th quarter Bills back up QB Frank Reich lost a fumble that would have resulted in a Leon Lett touchdown for the Cowboys if Don Beebe had not caught Lett showboating and knocked the ball out of Letts hands at the 1 yard line through the end zone for a touchback.
Super Bowl XLIII – Trailing 10-7 with 18 seconds left in the first half. Kurt Warner threw a INT on 1st and goal which resulted in a epic 100 yard pick 6.
