2017 Super Bowl LI News
1/25/16 - After yesterday's impressive blowout of Arizona, the Carolina Panthers are the early favorites to win Super Bowl 50. Despite the Broncos top-ranked defense, odds have the Panthers by 4 points in Santa Clara for the 2016 Super Bowl. Given that Carolina has forced 39 turnovers this season, and teams that win the turnover battle are 36-4 in Super Bowl games, there's an edge for the Panthers. It'll be the first time in Super Bowl history two No. 1 draft picks at QB will start against each other. For Peyton Manning, it's a chance to win a second Super Bowl and go out on top. On the other side, Cam Newton's hoping to silence critics and haters by bringing Carolina its first Super Bowl win. In 2011, Cam Newton was the No.1 overall pick in the NFL draft, followed by the Broncos Von Miller at No. 2. Denver and Carolina last played in 2012.
2017 Super Bowl LI Contenders
Although 12 of the NFL’s 32 teams will vie for the grand prize, only a select few will enter the fray regarded as true contenders for the Lombardi Trophy. Of course, injuries, upsets and a few miraculous plays always have a way of throwing wrenches into even the most qualified analyses. Here are the teams to watch as Super Bowl 50 draws closer:
The Seahawks put an abrupt halt to Arizona’s nine-game winning streak, but the Cards are still a tidy 4-2 this season against playoff-bound teams. Carson Palmer has led one of the league’s most potent offenses all season, ranking tops in total yardage and second in points overall. Larry Fitzgerald’s career year helped the Cardinals rack up the second-most yards passing in 2015, and with a top-10 rush defense, Arizona’s one team no one should be excited to see.
New England Patriots
Tom Brady and company looked vulnerable in the final weeks of the regular season, but it’s never wise to count out the Patriots in postseason competition. Especially with their upcoming bye week, which will allow Brady and his primary weapons (Rob Gronkowski and a returning Julian Edelman) the chance to get as healthy as possible for their divisional matchup.
It took a little help from the faltering New York Jets, but the Steelers managed to sneak into the Wild Card Round and they appear poised to do damage. Big Ben is no stranger to the postseason, and he has perhaps the NFL’s most dangerous backfield duo in Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Sitting at 4-4 halfway through the season, Pittsburgh looked dead in the water; now they’re looking more like a big black-and-yellow shark that’s out for blood.
Much like Pittsburgh, the Seahawks overcame injuries, doubt and a pedestrian 4-4 record at the midway point to fight their way into the playoffs. After last year’s goal-line debacle, coach Pete Carroll and his squad are undoubtedly eager for a chance at redemption. With Russell Wilson at the helm, Marshawn Lynch ready to run and the stifling Legion of Boom on defense, Seattle’s one wild-card team with the firepower to take down any opponent.
Super Bowl Greatest Moments
For five decades, the Super Bowl has brought football fans some of the most memorable and exciting plays, from game-saving Hail Mary passes to game-changing interceptions. Relive some of the greatest moments in the Big Game’s history in preparation for this year’s Super Bowl 50:
Super Bowl III: New York Jets 16, Indianapolis Colts 7
Before the NFL merged with the American Football League in 1970, the two organizations played what was known as the AFL-NFL Championship Game. The third of these contests was also the first to bear the name “Super Bowl,” and it was one to remember. Despite his New York Jets’ underdog status, QB Joe Namath assured a victory over the NFL’s mighty Indianapolis Colts—and he delivered. The Jets took the win, legitimizing both his AFL squad and the Super Bowl itself in the process.
Super Bowl XX: Chicago Bears 46, New England Patriots 10
Both teams made their Super Bowl debuts in ’86, but Mike Ditka’s Bears were clearly in a class of their own. Their innovative 46 defense helped them smash the competition en route to the playoffs, picking up 15 regular-season wins as they outscored opponents 456-198. Chicago breezed through the first two playoff rounds as well, taking down the Giants and Rams by a combined score of 45-0. The Bears then ran New England out of the Superdome in Louisiana, and still hold the record for fewest points allowed in an NFL postseason.
Super Bowl XXV: New York Giants 20, Buffalo Bills 19
Jim Kelly’s Bills were heavy favorites entering the Big Game in ’91, but an unlikely series of events began a four-year Super Bowl swoon for Buffalo. Trailing 12-10 at the half, New York put together a third-quarter drive for the ages which included four third-down conversions and ate up nearly nine-and-a-half minutes of game time. Mark Ingram highlighted the effort, breaking five different tackles for a jaw-dropping 14-yard run which set up the go-ahead TD and eventual victory for NY.
Super Bowl XXXIV: St. Louis Rams 23, Tennessee Titans 16
An instant classic the moment the final horn blew, the first Super Bowl of the ‘00s saw the Rams take a commanding 16-0 lead in the third quarter, only for the Titans to storm back with 16 unanswered points of their own. St. Louis QB Kurt Warner responded with his second touchdown pass to give his team a 23-16 edge, setting up the play now known simply as The Tackle. With the game on the line, the ball in his hands and nothing but daylight in front of him, receiver Kevin Dyson was taken down by Rams LB Mike Jones just yards from the endzone. Tackled at the legs, Dyson reached out for the TD but came up just inches short, securing a St. Louis victory and cementing one of the top moments in NFL lore.
Super Bowl XLII: New York Giants 20, New England Patriots 14
In an instant, the name David Tyree and the phrase “Helmet Catch” became part of every NFL fan’s vocabulary. The Patriots had amassed a perfect regular season and appeared poised to make history with a 19-0 run to the championship. Eli Manning had other ideas however, scrambling away from defenders to send a Hail Mary pass downfield which was snared by the virtually-unknown Tyree, who used the back of his helmet as much as his hands to secure the ball. Pulling down the catch while being harassed by elite safety Rodney Harrison made it that much more impressive, as Eli’s Giants went on to complete one of the biggest upsets in football history.
Super Bowl XLIX: New England Patriots 28, Seattle Seahawks 24
What else can be said about last year’s thrilling Super Bowl? With an apparent chance to run in the winning touchdown, Seattle elected not to hand the football off to the unstoppable Marshawn Lynch, opting instead to throw a short pass. Rookie Patriots CB Malcolm Butler read the play perfectly, stepped into position and secured the pick heard ‘round the world, turning a surefire Seahawks championship into Super Bowl ring No. 4 for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
Super Bowl History
When the first AFL-NFL Championship Game was played in 1967, few people in either league could predict that the game would snowball into one of the days on the calendar that an entire nation would look forward to – the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl matches up the last two teams standing after a long, grueling season and a pressure-packed playoff tournament. Every NFL player strives for this from day one and, for those who get here, this is their chance for a piece of history. Super Bowl Champions are immortalized forever. Losers are generally forgotten. As if the drama of the game itself isn’t enough, the Super Bowl has also become a cultural event of monumental proportions, and holders of Super Bowl tickets are sure to witness the game of a lifetime.
That first Super Bowl game was played at the Los Angeles Coliseum, and featured the NFL’s Green Bay Packers at the height of their dominant period in the 1960s, and the Kansas City Chiefs, who were owned by one of the AFL’s co-founders, Lamar Hunt. The Packers would take the game by a 35-10 count. Green Bay would return for the second game in 1968, knocking off the AFL representative Oakland Raiders 33-14 at the former Orange Bowl stadium in Miami. It wasn’t until 1969 and the third game that the Super Bowl name was adopted, and the first two games were retroactively referred to as Super Bowls I and II. Super Bowl III featured another traditional NFL power, the Baltimore Colts, facing off against the AFL upstart New York Jets. Even though the Colts were heavily favored, having lost only once through the regular season and the NFL playoffs, Jets quarterback Joe Namath guaranteed a win at a pregame event in Miami – and then followed through, bringing the AFL its only Super Bowl crown before becoming the merged American Football Conference (AFC).
First the AFC, then the NFC… Throughout the 1970s, the AFC would flex its collective muscles, as the Pittsburgh Steelers rose to prominence while winning three Super Bowls in five years. The Chiefs, Colts (having switched to the AFC as part of the AFL-NFL merger), Miami Dolphins, and Raiders would also win glory for the AFC, while the Dallas Cowboys would be the only NFC team to break through during the decade. The Steelers claimed their fourth Super Bowl to open the 1980s, while the Raiders would win twice more in the early part of the decade as well, but then the NFC would stake their claim as the power conference through the rest of the decade and well into the 1990s. The Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, and the Cowboys would establish a chokehold with multiple Super Bowl wins through the 1980s and 1990s, along with the Chicago Bears and their “Super Bowl Shuffle” team of 1986 and another Packers title in 1997. More recent times have seen the New England Patriots claim three Super Bowls in four years, while newer teams such as the St. Louis Rams, Baltimore Ravens, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached the Super Bowl pinnacles as well.
