Tuesday's Edge List: Top 5 Dramatic Super Bowl Moments
Joe Montana's third super bowl win against the Cincinnati Bengals, came by way of an 11-play, 92-yard drive at the end of regulation that was capped by this strike to John Taylor. In the huddle before the drive, rather than give into the pressure, Montana famously pointed out actor John Candy to his teammates as a way of acting like it was all no big deal. He then proceeded to dismantle the Bengals' defense.
Santonio Holmes' toe-dragging came within 35 seconds in regulation, and helped stave off an Arizona Cardinals upset and earned holmes an MVP award. It also might be the best catch in super bowl history.
Everyone knows the helmet catch. But what might be the most amazing part of it isn't even the catch itself - it's how Eli Manning managed to avoid multiple tacklers before throwing the pass. Manning puts the ball where only Tyree can get it, even if it requires slightly more effort than most catches do. The Giants would go on to score a touchdown on that drive, upsetting the 18-0 patriots.
The Tennessee Titans, down seven points, are on the St. Louis rams' ten yard line. Steve McNair throws it to Kevin Dyson who comes within a yard of the end zone by stretching out his body, but he can't quite reach it because of a great tackle by Mike Jones.
Scott Norwood made "wide right" one of the most famous phrases in NFL history. With eight seconds left and trailing by one, the Bills put Norwood out to kick a 47-yard field goal. The ball went to the right of the goal posts and the Giants got the ball back with four seconds to go, securing the first of four straight Buffalo Bills Super Bowl losses.
