Phil Simms
The first player to say “I’m going to Disney World” after winning the Super Bowl wasn’t the only one paid to do so that day

Nick Foles went, but he wasn’t even born the first time someone said the Magic words.Image: Getty ImagesWhen you wish upon a star, sometimes it makes a difference who you are. Before Super Bowl XXI, Disney agreed to pay two opposing quarterbacks $75,000 dollars each to say they would go to Walt Disney World if they won the Big Game. Phil Simms and John Elway got the same check, but the New York Giant wound up going to Mickey Mouse’s kingdom.“Phil Simms, you’ve just won the Super Bowl” a 1987 Disney ad read, “what’re you doing next?” You bet your ass he went to Disney World. Shit, for $75K you’d go anywhere too.Simms was the first NFL player to start the tradition. Later that year, more championship athletes committed to go to the theme park. After leading the Los Angeles Lakers to an NBA championship, Magic Jonson said he was “going to Disneyland.” And in the fall of ‘87, Frank Viola told cameras he was “going to Disney World” after winning a World Series with the Minnesota Twins.The magical tradition has held up in the NFL pretty much since then.G/O Media may get a commissionFOX’s Terry Bradshaw asked the famous question to Patrick Mahomes as soon as he won last year’s Super Bowl MVP. “[This is] something I wanted to say my whole life,” Mahomes said as orange and red confetti rained down on stage, “I’m going to Disney World!”The last time Tom Brady won a Super Bowl MVP, his teammate, James White, wound up taking the trip to Florida. But Brady did travel with Super Bowl LIII MVP, Julian Edelman, in 2019. .

The best individual Super Bowl performances of all time
By admin | | 0 Comments |

There is no bigger game than the Super Bowl, and over the more than a half-century of contests, there have been players who've put up spectacular performances on football's grandest stage. From record-breaking feats to sheer dominance, these players did amazing things in the NFL's championship-deciding game.   1 of 54 Damien Williams, Super Bowl LIV Kyle Terada / USA Today Sports Images Patrick Mahomes won Super Bowl MVP by helping bring the Chiefs back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LIV, but running back Damien Williams had a strong argument as more deserving. He had 17 carries for 104 yards and one touchdown, along with four catches for 29 yards and a receiving score in the 31-20 win.   2 of 54 Nick Foles, Super Bowl LII John David Mercer / USA Today Sports Images Named the MVP of Super Bowl LII, Foles finished off his Cinderella story with three touchdown passes and a touchdown reception in the Eagles upset of the Patriots. He also threw for 373 yards, helping Philadelphia put up 41 points against the Patriots in a 41-33 win.   Mark J. Rebilas / USA TODAY Sports Things looked bad for Brady early in Super Bowl LI, throwing an interception that was returned 82 yards for a touchdown to fall behind 21-0 and eventually 28-3. From there, however, Brady was his usual spectacular self, completing 43-of-62 passes for 466 yards and two touchdowns to earn MVP honors in the come-from-behind, overtime victory to claim his fifth Super Bowl title.   4 of 54 James White, Super Bowl LI Bob Donnan / USA TODAY Sports He may not have won Super Bowl MVP, but James White came up huge in New England's epic comeback against the Falcons, scoring the game-tying touchdown to send the game to overtime and become the first player to ever score the Super Bowl-winning TD in OT. In total, White finished with six carries for 29 yards and two rushing scores to go along with his huge day as a receiver, notching 14 catches for 110 yards and another score.   5 of 54 Tom Brady, Super Bowl XLIX Christian Peterson / Getty Images Brady earned his third Super Bowl MVP in a last-second win vs. Seattle. He completed 37-of-50 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns.   Christian Peterson / Getty Images Lynch rushed 24 times for 102 yards and one score in Seattle's Super Bowl loss. The Super Bowl will forever be remembered as a what-if, with the Seahawks opting to throw at the goal line instead of handing off to Lynch in a play that was picked off by New England.   7 of 54 Demaryius Thomas, Super Bowl XLVIII Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images Despite Denver's 43-8 loss to Seattle, Thomas had one of the best games ever by a wideout in the Super Bowl. He caught 13 passes for 118 yards and one score, as the Broncos played catch-up the entire game.   Chris Graythen / Getty Images The Ravens were hoping for a proper send-off for Ray Lewis, and Flacco's play helped them get one. He was awarded Super Bowl MVP after completing 22-of-33 passes for 287 yards and three scores.   Jamie Squire / Getty Images Manning won his second Super Bowl MVP with another great performance vs. the Patriots. He completed 30-of-40 passes for 296 yards and one score in New York's 21-17 win over New England.   Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images Rodgers took down the Steelers in an impressive performance, completing 24-of-39 passes for 304 yards and three scores. In doing so, he put the Brett Favre era in the rearview for the Packers.   11 of 54 Jordy Nelson, Super Bowl XLV Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images Nelson was Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiver, with nine catches on 15 targets for 140 yards and one touchdown.   Ronald Martinez / Getty Images New Orleans upset the Colts and Peyton Manning with a go-for-broke game plan led by Drew Brees. He won Super Bowl MVP after completing 32-of-39 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns.   Doug Benc / Getty Images Despite a losing effort, Warner was terrific in his third Super Bowl. He completed 31-of-43 passes for 377 yards and three touchdown passes for the Cardinals.   Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images Holmes claimed the game-winning catch vs. Arizona, which helped him win Super Bowl MVP. He finished with nine receptions for 131 yards and that one score.   15 of 54 Eli Manning, Super Bowl XLII Harry How / Getty Images The Giants pulled off the impossible, beating the undefeated and heavily favored Patriots in large part to Manning's heroics. He was 19-of-34 for 255 yards and two touchdown passes.   16 of 54 Peyton Manning, Super Bowl XLI Jed Jacobsohn / Getty Images Manning finally got his first Super Bowl win, completing 25-of-38 passes for 247 yards and one touchdown vs. the Bears. He also claimed Super Bowl MVP.   Harry How / Getty Images Ward helped prop up rookie Ben Roethlisberger in a defensive battle vs. the Seahawks, with five receptions for 123 yards and one touchdown. He also claimed Super Bowl MVP.   18 of 54 Deion Branch, Super Bowl XXXIX Jeff Gross / Getty Images Branch caught 11 of Tom Brady's 23 completions for 133 yards in New England's 24-21 win over Philadelphia.   19 of 54 Terrell Owens, Super Bowl XXXIX Al Messerschmidt / Getty Images Not expected to play due to a fractured leg and torn ligament in his ankle, Owens made a miraculous recovery and had nine catches for 122 yards in Philadelphia's 24-21 loss to the Patriots.   20 of 54 Tom Brady, Super Bowl XXXVIII Elsa / Getty Images The Panthers couldn't find an answer for Brady in their 32-29 loss. He completed 32-of-48 passes for 354 yards and three touchdowns, winning Super Bowl MVP.   21 of 54 Tom Brady, Super Bowl XXXVI Frank Micelotta Archive / Getty Images Heavy underdogs vs. the "Greatest Show on Turf," the Patriots pulled off a three-point win at the end of Super Bowl XXXVI when Tom Brady led the Patriots into field-goal range and Adam Vinatieri made a game-winning 48-yard field goal. Brady completed 16-of-27 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown.   22 of 54 Kurt Warner, Super Bowl XXXIV Allen Kee / Getty Images Warner completed a Cinderella season for the Rams in a 23-16 Super Bowl victory. He completed 24-of-45 passes for 414 yards and two touchdowns vs. Tennessee.   23 of 54 Isaac Bruce, Super Bowl XXXIV Allen Kee / Getty Images Bruce had six receptions for 162 yards and one score, an impressive 73-yard touchdown during the second half. It's his most memorable catch in an extremely productive career.   Allen Kee / Getty Images Elway rode off into the sunset after winning Super Bowl MVP, completing 18-of-29 passes for 336 yards and one passing touchdown. He added one rushing touchdown against the Falcons.   25 of 54 Rod Smith, Super Bowl XXXIII Rick Stewart / Getty Images Atlanta struggled to cover Smith, who caught five passes for 152 yards and one touchdown, an 80-yarder from John Elway.   26 of 54 Terrell Davis, Super Bowl XXXII Focus on Sport / Getty Images Davis had one of the best rushing performances ever in a Super Bowl, getting 30 carries for 157 yards and three touchdowns. He was the game's clear MVP.   27 of 54 Antonio Freeman, Super Bowl XXXII Jamie Squire / Getty Images Freeman's great performance wasn't enough to beat Denver, but it was impressive with nine catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns.   28 of 54 Desmond Howard, Super Bowl XXXI Focus on Sport / Getty Images Howard's 99-yard kick return in the third quarter sealed Super Bowl XXXI for the Packers. He claimed Super Bowl MVP in Green Bay's 35-21 win over New England.   29 of 54 Larry Brown, Super Bowl XXX Al Bello / Getty Images Brown was a difference maker in the Cowboys' 27-17 win over Pittsburgh, intercepting two passes.   30 of 54 Steve Young, Super Bowl XXIX Focus on Sport / Getty Images Young finally got the monkey off his back, claiming a Super Bowl after Joe Montana left the 49ers. He completed 24-of-36 passes for 325 yards and six touchdowns in a dominant 49-26 win over San Diego.   31 of 54 Jerry Rice, Super Bowl XXIX Focus on Sport / Getty Images Rice didn't win the Super Bowl MVP, but he had an incredible performance for the 49ers. He had 10 catches for 149 yards and three touchdowns in San Francisco's win over the Chargers.   32 of 54 Ricky Watters, Super Bowl XXIX George Rose / Getty Images Watters had one touchdown on the ground and added two as a receiver in San Francisco's dominant win. He finished the game with 108 yards from scrimmage.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images Smith claimed Super Bowl MVP with 30 carries for 132 yards and two scores in a second-half comeback vs. Buffalo.   Rogers Photo Archive / Getty Images Irvin was the beneficiary of Troy Aikman's great game, with six receptions for 114 yards and two scores in Dallas' 52-17 win over the Bills.   35 of 54 Troy Aikman, Super Bowl XXVII Focus on Sport / Getty Images The Cowboys embarrassed Buffalo in Super Bowl XXVII, scoring 52 points in a great performance led by Aikman. He completed 22-of-30 passes for 273 yards and four scores.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images Rypien claimed Super Bowl MVP with a solid performance against the Bills, completing 18-of-33 passes for 292 yards and two scores.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images Buffalo lost 20-19 after kicker Scott Norwood missed wide right, putting a damper on Thomas' MVP-worthy performance. He rushed 15 times for 135 yards and one score, adding five receptions for 55 yards.   38 of 54 Joe Montana, Super Bowl XXIV Focus on Sport Montana dominated the Broncos from start to finish, completing 22-of-29 passes for 297 yards and five touchdowns. He claimed his third Super Bowl MVP.   39 of 54 Jerry Rice, Super Bowl XXIV Focus on Sport / Getty Images Rice was Joe Montana's go-to guy again in Super Bowl XXIV, with seven receptions for 148 yards and three scores. Montana claimed MVP, however.   40 of 54 Jerry Rice, Super Bowl XXIII Focus on Sport / Getty Images While John Taylor caught the winning touchdown for the 49ers vs. Cincinnati in Super Bowl XXIII, it was Jerry Rice who had the best performance. He had 11 catches for 215 yards and one score, winning Super Bowl MVP.   41 of 54 Joe Montana, Super Bowl XXIII Focus on Sport / Getty Images Montana sparked a game-winning drive in Super Bowl XXIII. Cool Joe famously pointed out John Candy in the stands while in the huddle during the last drive and finished the game completing 22-of-36 passes for 357 yards and two scores.   42 of 54 Doug Williams, Super Bowl XXII Rick Stewart / Getty Images Williams led a dominant Redskins team to a 42-10 win over Denver, completing 18-of-29 passes for 340 yards and four scores. He beat out Timmy Smith for Super Bowl MVP.   43 of 54 Timmy Smith, Super Bowl XXII Focus on Sport / Getty Images Smith had a terrific game on the ground in Washington's juggernaut performance. He had 22 rushes for 204 yards and two touchdowns.   44 of 54 Ricky Sanders, Super Bowl XXII Focus on Sport / Getty Images Sanders was Doug Williams' favorite receiver in Super Bowl XXII, with nine catches for 193 yards and two touchdowns.   Rob Brown / Getty Images Simms and the Giants came up big in the second half, easily beating the Broncos 39-20. He won Super Bowl MVP, completing 22-of-25 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns.   46 of 54 Joe Montana, Super Bowl XIX Focus on Sport / Getty Images San Francisco capped off a 15-1 regular season by beating Miami in Super Bowl XIX. Montana won MVP by completing 24-of-35 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images Smooth Marcus Allen ran over Washington with 20 carries for 191 yards and two scores to win Super Bowl MVP.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images It was the John Riggins show for Washington, as the Skins beat Miami 27-17 after Riggins rushed 38 times for 166 yards and one touchdown.   Sylvia Allen / Getty Images Plunkett led the Raiders to a 27-10 win over Philadelphia, completing 13-of-21 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns.   Focus on Sport Swann scored one touchdown and had 161 yards on four catches in the Steelers' 21-17 win over Dallas in Super Bowl X. The performance was good enough for Super Bowl MVP.   51 of 54 Franco Harris, Super Bowl IX Sylvia Allen / Getty Images The Vikings simply couldn't find an answer for Harris in Super Bowl IX. He had 34 carries for 158 yards and one touchdown in Pittsburgh's 16-6 win.   Focus on Sport / Getty Images Bradshaw claimed Super Bowl MVP with a 35-31 win over Dallas. He had a huge game, completing 17-of-30 passes for 318 yards and four scores.   53 of 54 Larry Csonka, Super Bowl VIII Focus on Sport / Getty Images Csonka ran the ball down Minnesota's throat with 33 carries for 145 yards and two scores in Super Bowl VIII.   54 of 54 Bart Starr, Super Bowl I James Flores / Getty Images Starr led the Packers to a 35-10 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl I, completing 16-of-23 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.

Ranking the QB matchup of every Super Bowl
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Fair or not, quarterbacks get a healthy amount of praise and/or criticism for their teams' success. Having the ball in your hands tends to have certain responsibilities, after all. Whether it's playing mistake-free or carrying their teammates on their backs, quarterbacks play a huge part in the outcome of a game, especially the Super Bowl.The championship game brings together the last passers standing from each conference. Both bring a different flair to the position, but the goal remains the same: Win the game. This has produced some epic quarterback duels, from both players trading scores or young upstarts making names for themselves by knocking off the top dogs. The Super Bowl brings out the best in quarterbacks or crushes them under immense pressure. Either way, it's highly entertaining. With that in mind, here is a ranking of every Super Bowl quarterback matchup.   Focus on Sport/Getty Images Fans and experts called this the “Blunder Bowl” for a reason. Despite having great quarterbacks in Johnny Unitas and Craig Morton, neither showed up for the biggest game of the year. Unitas didn’t even finish the game, getting knocked out in the second quarter but not before he threw two interceptions compared to just three completions. Morton survived the game but didn’t fare any better, throwing three interceptions and completing less than 50 percent of his passes. Many people want to forget this one.   Brian Bahr/Getty Images Some of the greatest quarterbacks in the game have played in the Super Bowl. Trent Dilfer and Kerry Collins are not among them. Both teams rode running games and strong defenses. It seems that any quarterback who played it safe could’ve been behind center and would have made it to the game. The Super Bowl only confirmed those suspicions. Collins got roughed up by one of the best defenses of all time, getting picked off and sacked four times each. Dilfer technically won the duel by getting the win but didn’t do much, completing less than 50 percent of his passes but throwing for a touchdown. Most Super Bowls have at least one quarterback who performs well. This one had none.   Ezra Shaw/Getty Images Yes, it’s Peyton Manning, but he was a shell of his former self, relying on the excellence of his defense to win. Cam Newton established himself as one of the faces of the NFL with 3,837 passing yards, 636 rushing yards and 45 total touchdowns. Newton was expected to excel, but not even he could solve the Denver D. Newton was sacked six times and threw one interception. He also lost two fumbles in a messy game. Manning held on for dear life, throwing for only 141 yards and taking five sacks. Manning-Newton is a great generational debate. Unfortunately, the reality in 2016 was so much worse.   4 of 54 50. Super Bowl VII: Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins, and Billy Kilmer, Washington Redskins Focus on Sport/Getty Images Both Super Bowl quarterbacks had less than ideal starts to the season. Bob Griese fractured his leg early in the year, while Billy Kilmer was replaced three games into the season by a 38-year-old Sonny Jurgensen before gaining the starting job again after the veteran went down with an Achilles injury. Both weren't much of a factor in this Super Bowl. Griese leaned heavily on Larry Csonka and the stable of running backs behind him, completing only eight passes on 11 attempts. Kilmer did the same but ended up contributing to the Redskins' woes with three interceptions. This was not a quarterback duel fans would remember.   5 of 54 49. Super Bowl II: Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers, and Daryle Lamonica, Oakland Raiders Focus On Sport/Getty Images The wily veteran vs. the young gunslinger: Starr was playing in what was the last season of his Hall of Fame career, while Lamonica was setting the AFL on fire with his powerful arm. The “Mad Bomber” found out it takes a lot more than a big arm to win the Super Bowl, though, as Starr managed the game to perfection to win his second straight championship. For all his production in the regular season, Lamonica couldn’t move the ball against a stingy Green Bay defense. It didn’t help that the Packers were eating the clock with long possessions, keeping the explosive Oakland offense on the bench. Lamonica got some garbage-time yards and finished with 208 yards and two touchdowns, but Starr expertly led the Packers behind an efficient 202 yards on 13 completions with one touchdown.   6 of 54 48. Super Bowl VIII: Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings Focus on Sport/Getty Images Much like in the previous year’s Super Bowl, Bob Griese didn’t have to do much to help the Dolphins win their second straight championship. He had to complete six passes this time while leaning on Larry Csonka again. Minnesota’s Fran Tarkenton did his best to dance and scramble the Vikings back in the game but found it hard to do anything against Miami. He finished with 182 passing yards and one interception. It was another snoozer of a quarterback matchup.   Rob Tringali/SportsChrome/Getty Image After the previous few Super Bowl quarterback matchups, this one was a dud. It wasn’t the talent level that was the problem. Ben Roethlisberger got hurt during the season and still put up 2,385 passing yards and 17 touchdowns in 12 games. Matt Hasselbeck rode Shaun Alexander's 28-touchdown MVP campaign and threw for 24 touchdowns against nine interceptions. The Super Bowl was another story. The game was plagued by questionable officiating, and the players didn’t do much to make it any better. Roethlisberger went 9-of-21 in his pass attempts and was intercepted twice. Hasselbeck did better, with 273 pass yards, but was sacked three times. It was an ugly game in terms of quarterback play.   Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images With one of the greatest quarterbacks ever on one side and an emerging star in Los Angeles on the other, you would have thought Super Bowl LIII's quarterback matchup would have produced better results. Unfortunately fans were subjected to one of the most boring offensive displays in this pass-heavy era of football. Jared Goff, who passed for 4,688 passing yards and 32 touchdowns in the 2018 season, was stoned by Bill Belichick, looking lost while only completing 50 percent of his passes and guiding the Rams to three points. Brady, who was no slouch with over 4,300 passing yards, threw his signature dump-offs and slants for a yawn-inducing 262 yards and wasn't directly responsible for any points scored by New England. Many were expecting fireworks for this matchup but instead got one of the most infuriating Super Bowl games ever.   9 of 54 45. Super Bowl XX: Jim McMahon, Chicago Bears, and Tony Eason, New England Patriots Focus on Sport/Getty Images You could’ve literally put any quarterback against the Chicago Bears defense in 1985, and it wouldn’t have mattered. The Bears were going to win no matter what. Jim McMahon was a solid quarterback, completing 12 passes for 256 passing yards, but Tony Eason couldn’t do anything, missing all six of his pass attempts before getting knocked out of the game. This couldn’t be a more forgettable matchup.   10 of 54 44. Super Bowl I: Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers, and Len Dawson, Kansas City Chiefs James Flores/Getty Images The first Super Bowl featured two of the era’s most accurate passers. Len Dawson led the AFL with a 56 percent completion percentage, while Starr completed 62.2 percent of his passes to lead the NFL. Even though Dawson crushed Starr in the touchdown department (26-14), it was Starr who prevailed in the championship game. After star receiver Boyd Dowler went down, Starr rode veteran tight end Max McGee the entire game, completing seven passes to him for 138 yards. Dawson couldn’t keep up with Starr, finishing with 39 fewer pass yards and throwing a critical third quarter interception that gave Green Bay the momentum the rest of the game. The Packers won, 35-10.   Focus on Sport/Getty Images The Colts were 18-point favorites to destroy the less-productive Jets. A big reason for that huge spread was Morrall, who led the NFL with 26 touchdowns in 1968. Joe Namath, who was looked like a woefully inferior quarterback in comparison, boldly claimed the Jets would win the Super Bowl three days before the game was played. The rest was history. Morrall couldn’t solve the Jets defense, throwing three interceptions before being replaced by veteran Johnny Unitas. Namath, on the other hand, dinked and dunked his way past the Colts’ blitzing defense, finishing with 206 yards on 17 completions. He may not have torched the AFL during the season, but he did what he needed to do to win the league’s first Super Bowl.   12 of 54 42. Super Bowl IX: Terry Bradshaw, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings Focus on Sport/Getty Images With two historic defenses in this Super Bowl, there was little hope that either quarterback was going to flex his muscles much. Terry Bradshaw found some success getting on Franco Harris’ back and riding his 158 rushing yards. He finished the game with nine completions and a touchdown. Fran Tarkenton once again was foiled by a great defense, throwing three interceptions, and the “Steel Curtain” stuffed Chuck Foreman time and time again.   13 of 54 41. Super Bowl IV: Len Dawson, Kansas City Chiefs, and Joe Kapp, Minnesota Vikings Focus on Sport/Getty Images Joe Kapp wasn’t a passer like Len Dawson, but he was so tough on runs from the quarterback position that he earned the nickname “indestructible.” Dawson had a rough season, missing six games with a knee injury, and he barely qualified for the playoffs. The fortunes flipped in the Super Bowl. Kapp never had to play against a defense as big as the Chiefs'. He struggled to find receivers, throwing two interceptions, and ran for only 9 yards. On the other side of the field, Dawson had an easier time taking advantage of open receivers on the short routes, throwing for 142 yards on 12 completions with one touchdown. Neither quarterback lit the world on fire, as the defenses dominated this game.   Focus on Sport/Getty Images The 33-year-old Jim Plunkett revived his career with the Raiders after stinking it up in New England and San Francisco. With Ron Jaworski leading the Eagles with 3,529 yards and 27 touchdowns in the regular season, this was set to be a great matchup. Well, at least Plunkett came to play. Plunkett put on a deep-ball clinic, throwing for three touchdowns and 261 yards on 13 completions. Jaworski, on the other hand, went the opposite direction, getting picked off three times. The Eagles scored only 10 points, and the Raiders won easily.   15 of 54 39. Super Bowl XVII: Joe Theismann, Washington Redskins, and David Woodley, Miami Dolphins Andrew D. Bernstein/Getty Images The quarterback position and the Miami Dolphins have a curious relationship. The team reached four Super Bowls to this point without a quarterback who put up huge numbers. Even though this matchup featured the top-rated passer in the NFC in Joe Theismann, not even he was enough to make this duel intriguing with David Woodley behind center for Miami. Woodley completed four of his 14 pass attempts for 96 yards, with a majority of them coming from a 76-yard scoring connection with Jimmy Cefalo in the first quarter. Theismann did his best to make the quarterback battle semi-exciting, completing 15-of-23 passes for 143 yards with two touchdowns. His two interceptions were an eyesore though, making this matchup a bore.   16 of 54 38. Super Bowl XI: Ken Stabler, Oakland Raiders, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings Focus on Sport/Getty Images The third time was not the charm for Fran Tarkenton. Even after establishing himself as the league’s all-time leader in pass completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns, he couldn’t get over the hump to win a Super Bowl. Tarkenton had trouble with the Raiders' 3-4 defense filled with aggressive, hard-hitting players. Ken Stabler, on the other hand, had no problem solving the Purple People Eaters defense, handing the ball off to Clarence Davis and Mark van Eeghen and managing the game perfectly by completing 12-of-19 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown.   17 of 54 37. Super Bowl VI: Roger Staubach, Dallas Cowboys, and Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins Kidwiler Collection/Diamond Images/Getty Images Two young, hotshot quarterbacks met in Super Bowl VI, with Roger Staubach earning the starting job in his third year, while Bob Griese threw for nearly 2,100 yards and 19 touchdowns. The former Navy Vietnam veteran rode a productive run game and chipped in with 119 yards on 12 completions, including two passing touchdowns. Griese couldn’t carry the load after his running game failed him, throwing for 134 yards, getting picked off once and fumbling the ball. He would have a chance to redeem himself soon enough.   18 of 54 36. Super Bowl XII: Roger Staubach, Dallas Cowboys, and Craig Morton, Denver Broncos Bettmann Collection/Getty Images Roger Staubach replaced Craig Morton as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback in 1971, and Dallas never looked back. Morton got a chance for revenge against his former team in Super Bowl XII. He did not capitalize. Morton fell victim to Dallas’ Doomsday Defense, throwing four interceptions and completing only four passes for 39 yards. Staubach had more success against the vaunted Orange Crush Denver defense, throwing for 183 yards and one touchdown. This was hyped a revenge game but ended up being a dud.   19 of 54 35. Super Bowl XIV: Terry Bradshaw, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Vince Ferragamo, Los Angeles Rams Focus On Sport/Getty Images It was already a miracle that the Rams made it into the playoffs, and they got to the Super Bowl, which was even more unbelievable. But it was no thanks to quarterback Vince Ferragamo. The fourth-round draft pick was expected to get outdueled by Terry Bradshaw, and he didn’t do much to fight that. Ferragamo finished the game with 212 passing yards but never hit pay dirt for a score and had one pass intercepted. Bradshaw may have had three passes picked off, but he added two touchdowns and threw for 309 yards. There wasn’t much back and forth like there was with him and Staubach the previous year. It was all Bradshaw this time.   20 of 54 34. Super Bowl XVIII: Jim Plunkett, Los Angeles Raiders, and Joe Theismann, Washington Redskins Ronald C. Modra/Sports Imagery/Getty Images Two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks usually provide a matchup full of potential. With MVP-winning Joe Theismann and Jim Plunkett still showing off his big arm, everyone was expecting an explosive Super Bowl. Neither delivered. Plunkett took a backseat to running back Marcus Allen, who rushed for 191 yards. The Raiders quarterback at least notched one touchdown. Theismann couldn’t even manage that, throwing two interceptions. The Raiders made the Super Bowl a laugher, winning 38-9.   Rob Brown/Getty Images Before Phil Simms was doing Super Bowl broadcasts, he was on the field winning one. The “Big Blue Wrecking Crew” Giants defense may have gotten the headlines, but Simms led the offense with 3,487 passing yards. John Elway was already entertaining crowds with his ability to scramble. In the Super Bowl, Simms outdueled Elway with three touchdowns, while Elway had a tough time moving the ball against Lawrence Taylor and Co. He still finished with over 300 yards passing, but he was unable to make the Super Bowl intriguing.   22 of 54 32. Super Bowl XLVIII: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, and Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images You would think in a matchup featuring a record-setting Peyton Manning, who threw for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, would be exciting no matter what. It was quite the contrary when he ran into the Legion of Boom. Manning was throttled by Seattle, throwing two interceptions, getting sacked once and losing a fumble. Russell Wilson gobbled up the extra possessions his defense gave him, managing the game perfectly with 206 yards and two touchdowns. What was supposed to be a competitive matchup ended up being a laugher.   23 of 54 31. Super Bowl XXII: Doug Williams, Washington Redskins, and John Elway, Denver Broncos Mike Powell/Getty Images Redskins quarterback Doug Williams started the season on the bench but took over the starting job at the end of the season. In five games, he piled up 1,156 yards and 11 touchdowns, but he was running into a buzz saw in John Elway, who just completed another excellent season in which he threw for nearly 3,200 yards. Instead, Williams stole the show. The first African-American quarterback to start a Super Bowl threw four touchdowns. Unable to shake his Super Bowl woes, Elway threw three interceptions and was sacked five times. Williams wowed the crowd, but Elway couldn’t join him in making this a more entertaining game.   24 of 54 30. Super Bowl XIX: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and Dan Marino, Miami Dolphins Sylvia Allen/Getty Images Montana vs. Mr. 5,000 — this was going to be the quarterback matchup to end all quarterback matchups. Dan Marino became the first quarterback to eclipse 5,000 yards in a season, and Joe Montana threw for 28 touchdowns. Well, at least one of them showed up. Montana destroyed Marino in a head-to-head battle, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for another. Marino did the best he could, throwing for 318 yards, but he was picked off twice. Many people argued that Marino was well on his way to supplanting Montana at the top of the quarterback mountain, but the 49ers legend put those statements to bed.   25 of 54 29. Super Bowl XXIV: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and John Elway, Denver Broncos Icon Sportswire/Getty Images Two legendary quarterbacks faced off in Super Bowl XXIV, and both confirmed their respective reputations through their performances, for better or for worse. John Elway came into the game losing his last two Super Bowls, and he didn’t do much to quell criticism that he couldn't win the big game. He didn’t have his best season, and that inconsistency showed in the championship game, where he threw two interceptions and was sacked four times. Montana cemented his penchant for big performances, pummeling the Broncos into submission through the air with 297 passing yards and five touchdowns to set a Super Bowl record. He didn’t need Elway to give the fans a show.   Rick Stewart/Getty Images In 1991, Mark Rypien and Jim Kelly were lighting up the NFL. Rypien threw for 3,564 yards and 28 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. Kelly continued to masterfully orchestrate the K-Gun offense, throwing for 3,844 yards with a league-high 33 touchdowns. Unfortunately, this was another matchup he did not capitalize on. Kelly got thrown around by the Washington defense, getting sacked five times and throwing four interceptions. Rypien took advantage of Kelly’s miscues, throwing for 292 yards and two touchdowns. This wasn’t the first or last time Kelly was bested on the biggest stage.   27 of 54 27. Super Bowl XXVIII: Troy Aikman, Dallas Cowboys, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills Focus on Sport/Getty Images For the first time in NFL history, the same two teams made it to the Super Bowl in back-to-back years. Aikman-Kelly was set up to be a barnburner, with Aikman still commanding an efficient offense, while Kelly led the Bills to the best record in the AFC. Unfortunately for the Bills, history would repeat itself. Kelly attempted 50 passes but had a hard time moving the ball, with one interception and three sacks. Aikman didn’t have to dominate the game like he did the year before, with Emmitt Smith rushing for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Aikman and the Cowboys coasted to another easy win, and the Jim Kelly Bills earned the dubious honor of being known as the greatest team to never win a Super Bowl.   28 of 54 26. Super Bowl XLI: Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts, and Rex Grossman, Chicago Bears Matt Kryger/Getty Images Peyton Manning’s first Super Bowl was a momentous occasion with one of the greatest quarterbacks finally making it to the championship game. Too bad there wasn’t a similar quarterback on the other side of the field to make the game interesting. Rex Grossman was a fine quarterback, but he didn’t have the clout that would’ve made this a heavyweight battle. He finished the game with 20 completions for only 165 yards and was picked off twice. Not even Manning lit up the Miami sky. He finished with 247 yards, a touchdown and an interception. It wasn’t his best game, but he got the job done.   29 of 54 25. Super Bowl XXVII: Troy Aikman, Dallas Cowboys, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills Owen C. Shaw/Getty Images It was another year in which Jim Kelly dominated the AFC in the no-huddle offense, but a new challenger rose from the NFC. Troy Aikman led a Cowboys team that finished second in the league in scoring, throwing for 3,445 yards and 23 touchdowns. Aikman lit up the Bills, throwing four touchdowns and going 22-of-30 on his pass attempts. After throwing two interceptions, Kelly reinjured his knee that kept him out of the first two playoff games, knocking him out of the game. The Bills lost for the third straight year in the Super Bowl.   30 of 54 24. Super Bowl XXIX: Steve Young, San Francisco 49ers, and Stan Humphries, San Diego Chargers Focus on Sport/Getty Images Stan Humphries was thrust into the national spotlight by making the Super Bowl with the surprise Chargers. He threw for 3,209 yards, but on the other side of the field he ran into Steve Young, the 49ers quarterback who had Joe Montana’s big shoes to fill and a lot of questions as to if he could win a big game. He made sure people knew he was ready against San Diego. Young torched the Chargers for 325 yards and six touchdowns, breaking Montana's previous record of five touchdown passes set in Super Bowl XXIV. Humphries' luck ran out against the 49ers, throwing two interceptions and getting sacked twice before being replaced in the fourth quarter. The one-sided affair made this a mediocre matchup.   31 of 54 23. Super Bowl XXV: Jeff Hostetler, New York Giants, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills Rob Brown/Getty Images Jim Kelly and Buffalo’s no-huddle K-Gun offense was supposed to be the main draw in the matchup with Jeff Hostetler playing game manager filling in for an injured Phil Simms. The game was a lot more entertaining than that. Hostetler and Kelly battled to a near draw, with Hostetler throwing for 222 yards and a touchdown, while Kelly put up 212 yards, including 28 yards late in the fourth quarter to set up the potential game-winning field goal. However, as many Buffalo fans know, Scott Norwood missed the kick, giving the Giants the win.   32 of 54 22. Super Bowl XVI: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and Ken Anderson, Cincinnati Bengals Focus on Sport/Getty Images In terms of quarterback matchups, this was marquee-worthy. A young Joe Montana emerged for the 49ers, leading the league with a 63.7 completion percentage. On the other side, Ken Anderson won the NFL MVP and Comeback Player of the Year, throwing for 3,754 yards and 29 touchdowns. Their duel in Super Bowl was impressive. Montana started the scoring with a rushing touchdown in the first quarter and followed that up with a passing score in the second. After the 49ers jumped to a 20-0 lead at halftime, it was all Anderson from there. His third-quarter rushing touchdown was the only score that quarter, and he notched two fourth-quarter throwing scores, one of them with 22 seconds left to pull the Bengals within five. The only thing Anderson needed was time, something he was not afforded after a failed onside kick gave Montana his first Super Bowl win, starting a legendary career.   33 of 54 21.
