The best and worst Super Bowl moments. So says us.
A)Best Kick: New England Patriot Adam Vinatieris last-second, 48-yard field goal beat St. Louis 20-17 in Super Bowl XXXVI, marking the only time the Super Bowl was ever won with a buzzer beater.
Worst Kick: Scott Norwood missed a last-second, 47-yard field goal try in Super Bowl XXV, giving the New York Giants a 20-19 win and helping the Buffalo Bills become a Super Bowl punch line.
B) Best Catch: Lynn Swanns acrobatic, 53-yard grab in Super Bowl X spurred his Pittsburgh Steelers to a 21-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys. If ballet looked like this play, wed go see it.
Worst Catch: Dallas Jackie Smith was wide open in the end zone and the pass was perfect. But Smith neglected to, you know, grab the ball. The Cowboys lost Super Bowl XXIII 35-31 to Pittsburgh.
C)Best Drive: Joe Montana led his San Francisco 49ers on a 93-yard drive in Super Bowl XXIII, scoring with 34 seconds left to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16. Too bad no one has beaten the Bengals out of those gruesome uniforms.
Worst Drive: Denver, how do you let the Washington Redskins score 35 points in one quarter in Super Bowl XXII and let Timmy Smith who? set an all-time Super Bowl rushing record?
D)Best Touchdown: On a fourth-and-inches play, bruising halfback John Riggins busted through a tackle and rumbled 43 yards to score, leading his Washington Redskins to a 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII. Grr.
Worst Touchdown: Hall of Famer Walter Payton deserved to score, but with his Chicago Bears on their way to a 46-10 Super Bowl XX drubbing of the New England Patriots, William The Refrigerator Perry got the ball instead and plowed in for a one-yard TD.
E) Best Moment Ever: The Tennessee Titans Kevin Dyson needed a touchdown to beat the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV, but he was tackled a yard shy as time expired. Oh, the drama.
Worst Moment Ever: In Super Bowl VII, Miami Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian had a field-goal try blocked by the Redskins, so he picked up the ball and inexplicably threw it backward. Miami got the last laugh, winning 14-7.
