The Best Super Bowls Ever Played
The Super Bowl is as close to a must-watch television event as live TV has anymore. It’s happened every year since 1967, growing from humble beginnings to America’s unofficial sports holiday. Many people who go to Super Bowl parties couldn’t care less about the actual football being played, but when the game is close and exciting, it makes the whole night even better.
There have been plenty of terribly dull Super Bowl blowouts — like pretty much every one played in the ’80s — but there have been some truly great games as well. Whether it was back-and-forth scoring, huge comebacks, iconic plays or a combination of them all, we’ve rounded up the best Super Bowls ever played and ranked them in reverse order of greatness. These were the matchups that truly lived up to the hype of the big game.
