Believe it or not, the NFL season is halfway through. The teams have found their identities, new stars have emerged, and the experts are already beginning to make their Super Bowl LII predictions. Though it’s nearly impossible to find a consensus when it comes to who will be competing in the big game—the Eagles, Patriots, Chiefs, and Seahawks all seem like reasonably good bets—chances are, if last year is any indication, it’s going to be a spectacular game.

Read on to learn about five of the greatest championship games.
Super Bowl LI
We’ll start with the most recent and perhaps greatest of all time. The 2017 championship had it all: the largest comeback (down by 25 points), a monster performance from a future Hall of Famer (Tom Brady threw for 466 yards), and the cementation of our era’s dynasty (it gave Brady and Belichick their fifth championship in seven tries).
Super Bowl XXXIV
Often remembered for the phrases “One Yard Short” and simply “The Tackle”, the 2000 matchup between the Tennessee Titans and the St. Louis Rams was an instant classic. It was the first Super Bowl for the newly named Tennessee Titans, and at the time spectators saw record-breaking performances from quarterback Kurt Warner. Those in attendance were at the edge of their seats until the very end when Rams linebacker Mike Jones stopped Titans receiver Kevin Dyson one yard shy of the end zone as time expired. Not only was this one of the greatest games on the field, but off the field, it also took on a historical importance for being the “Dot-com Super Bowl”—a label created because of all of the dot-com companies that purchased a large number of advertisements.
Super Bowl XXV
Perhaps one of the most legendary kicks in Super Bowl history, this 1991 matchup between the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills is often remembered for the heartbreaking “wide right” missed kick that gave the Giants the win. It also marked the Bills’ failed four-year run at the Super Bowl—from 1990 to 1993 they lost four consecutive Super Bowl games.
Super Bowl XLIX
This 2015 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots is often remembered for the Pete Carroll’s controversial decision to pass the ball instead of running it at the Patriots’ 1-yard line, which resulted in a Patriots’ interception and, therefore, victory. When people speak of “the worst call in Super Bowl history,” this game is often first mentioned. But nonetheless, it was one of the greatest of all time.
Super Bowl XIII
This 1979 matchup between two great quarterbacks—Roger Staubach and Terry Bradshaw—and a legendary defense, the Steel Curtain, had everything you would want in a Big-Game matchup. The Steelers ultimately won the game, helping to cement their legacy as “The team of the 70s”. If you have never seen the highlights of this classic game, they are worth seeing. Check them out here.
