Super Bowl Sunday may be as close as it gets to being a religious holiday in some parts of the U.S. without actually being one.

Top 6 Super Bowls of the Last 15 Years
A decade and a half of the National Football League title games has brought us hype, drama, and stunning spectacles—but not every Super Bowl game goes down in history for it’s excitement. Looking back, these are the six most electrifying post-season finales over that stretch—due to on and off-field events.
Super Bowl XLII — Giants 17, Patriots 14
Considered one of the biggest upsets in professional sports, this Super Bowl ranks:
- 5th on the NFL’s 100 Greatest Games
- 3rd on the NFL’s 100 Greatest Plays for David Tyree’s famous “helmet catch.”
Tyree’s game-defining grab gave the trailing Giants a 32-yard gain and the momentum to take the win four plays later, upsetting the Patriots’ perfect season. Eli Manning would go on to win the Super Bowl MVP.
Super Bowl XLVI — Giants 21, Patriots 17
The two northeastern teams met again to battle it out over the Lombardi Trophy. And despite the Giants’ mediocre season, they would go on to once again beat the Patriots. In fact, they made history doing so. No team besides the Giants has been a Super Bowl champion with such a terrible regular season record: 9-7.
Super Bowl XLVII — Ravens 34, 49ers 31
This Super Bowl had a couple of nicknames. The first was the HarBowl, after the two siblings, Jim and John Harbaugh, came face-to-face as opposing head coaches. Then, when the game was suspended due to a power outage midway, it was also referred to as the Blackout Bowl. Despite this, the Ravens won, upsetting the 49ers’ 5-0 record for Super Bowl wins.
Super Bowl XLIX — Patriots 28, Seahawks 24
The Seahawks were eager for back-to-back Super Bowl wins, but unlike the previous year, the Patriots proved to be much more of a challenge.
This game went back and forth until the final few seconds, with the Seahawks—then down by four—on the Patriots’ one-yard line. However, instead of rushing the ball, the Seahawks went for a pass that cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted, sealing the Patriots’ victory.
Super Bowl LI — Patriots 34, Falcons 28
If you’re familiar with how many times the underdog won the Super Bowl and Tom Brady’s Super Bowl wins and losses, then you’ll know that this game was certainly one for the books and helped Tom Brady earn his GOAT status. Despite a scoreless first quarter, the Falcons scored three consecutive touchdowns, with the Patriots only able to squeeze in a field goal before halftime.
The game’s largest point gap was in the third quarter when the Falcons led 28-3. Despite this, Brady and the Patriots plowed forward, scoring 25 points, including three touchdowns and one field goal to tie the game 28-28. This would be the first overtime in Super Bowl history, and the Patriots would take the win and become the Super Bowl Champion.
Have you been wondering which team has the most Super Bowl wins? This game would skyrocket the New England’s patriots and place them as one of the two teams with the most Super Bowl wins.
Super Bowl LII — Eagles 41, Patriots 33
This Super Bowl was famous for the Philly Special—a trick play involving Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles and two other teammates. With the Eagles at fourth-and-goal seconds before halftime on the Patriots’ one-yard line, it was a snap, pitch, and throw to Foles, who was wide open in the endzone. The Eagles would remain on top the whole game, but the Patriots were never far behind.
Who Will Win Super Bowl LVII?
Based on this season’s and recent years’ performance, the favorites for making the 2023 Super Bowl are shaping up to be:
AFC – The Kansas City Chiefs or the Cincinnati Bengals
NFC – The San Francisco 49ers or the Philadelphia Eagles
And it’s looking like the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes are current favorites to win this year’s Lombardi Trophy. But before the big game, there are still Divisional and Conference playoff rounds to play (and bet on).
