The way-too-early odds to win Super Bowl LVI

Another NFL season is in the books, and NFL bettors are already thinking about next year. The odds are likely to change with offseason NFL personnel moves, but here’s a way too early look at the odds to win Super Bowl LVI. Odds from BetOnline, as of February 6, 2021.

The Chiefs have a lot of free-agent decisions to make with a roster that’s likely to change more than it did a year ago, but the core of the team remains with Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and company. With the coaching staff remaining intact, the Chiefs remain the clear favorites for a second straight year.

Green Bay took a heartbreaking defeat in the NFC Championship, and have some key free-agent decisions to make like Corey Linsley and Kevin King. Still, the team is comfortable going into 2021 with Aaron Rodgers playing as well as ever. A new defensive coordinator could also have an impact, one way or another.

 

Geoff Burke / USA Today Sports Images

It was a surprise to some how quickly the Bucs came on with 43-year-old Tom Brady under center, but the team has a lot of key free agents to make with stars like Shaq Barrett, Lavonte David, and Chris Godwin able to walk. There’s always the risk that Brady will fall off the proverbial age cliff, but somehow he’s fended off Father Time so far.

Lamar Jackson regressed following his 2019 MVP and the criticism that he can’t win the big game remains. His payday will come due for the Ravens very soon, and the team would do well to surround him with more weapons. The potential loss of pass rushers Matt Judon and Yannick Ngakoue in free agency is also a big concern.

 

Denny Medley / USA Today Sports Images

Buffalo got so close to the Super Bowl this past season that the Bills Mafia can taste it. Josh Allen came into his own in his third season and has an excellent core around him. It could be time for the defense to get younger, especially up front, and there are also some decisions to make on what has been a strong offensive line.

 

Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images

The Rams wasted little time in planning for 2021, pulling off a blockbuster trade for Matthew Stafford. Depth could become an issue with the organization continuing to disregard the top rounds of the draft, but there remains plenty of star power in LA. Stafford has a chance to have success with one of the most talented rosters he’s ever been on, filled with the star power of Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald, and Jalen Ramsey. Head coach Sean McVay fell into a rut with Jared Goff at quarterback but now has to be licking his chops.

 

Kyle Terada / USA Today Sports Images

After advancing to the Super Bowl in 2019, the 49ers took a hard fell due to several major injuries. Head coach Kyle Shanahan still got the most out of his talent, and the core is set to return next season. There are still questions about whether Jimmy Garoppolo is the answer at quarterback, and veterans like Trent Williams and Richard Sherman could be lost in free agency.

 

Dale Zanine / USA Today Sports Images

With the retirement of Drew Brees, the Saints have some major questions heading into 2021. It’s assumed that Taysom Hill will be their new starter, though that’s not a foregone conclusion. The team could be set to move forward without the likes of Jared cook, Sheldon Rankins, Alex Anzalone, and Marcus Williams, as well, though Sean Payton has shown that he can overcome change.

 

Denny Medley / USA Today Sports Images

Cleveland won a playoff game and also gave the Chiefs a huge challenge in the Divisional Round, so Browns fans have to look at the progress this past season. They’re still waiting on Baker Mayfield to fulfill the hype as a former No. 1 overall pick, but the supporting cast remains outstanding with Odell Beckham likely to return. There are some nice complementary pieces headed toward free agency, but Kevin Stefanski’s team has a chance to take another step forward in 2021.

 

Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images

After a great start, Seattle’s offense stagnated in the second half of 2020. As a result, the team moved on from offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. The Seahawks have a long list of unrestricted free agents this offseason but have shown relative consistency since Russell Wilson has come on board.

 

Rich Barnes / USA Today Sports Images

No team took a bigger step forward in 2000 than the Dolphins, though they still came up just short on a playoff spot. After Tua Tagovailoa’s rookie season, there are questions about him as the answer at quarterback, but the strong defense should give him some leeway next season.

 

Rich Barnes / USA Today Sports Images

The Colts had a strong rebound in 2020 with a great defense and better quarterback play with Philip Rivers. It’s completely unclear who will be the team’s signal-caller next season after Rivers’ retirement, and the team also has to decide what to do with free agents T.Y. Hilton and Justin Houston, among others. Indy’s Super Bowl odds could improve sharply if they find a proven veteran to help head coach Frank Reich and company.

 

Jay Biggerstaff / USA Today Sports Images

The Chargers greatly underachieved over the last two seasons, and head coach Anthony Lynn finally took the fall. There’s optimism new head coach Brandon Staley can help the team improve, and Justin Herbert was spectacular under center in his rookie campaign. Unfortunately, the Chargers still have to contend with Patrick Mahomes in the AFC West, and they also have several major free-agent decisions to make, led by Melvin Ingram and Hunter Henry.

 

Troy Taormina / USA Today Sports Images

While Tennessee returned to the playoffs, they were unable to improve upon their playoff success from last year. The loss of offensive coordinator Arthur Smith could really hurt, and it also remains to be seen how long Derrick Henry can keep up his current workload. Prominent free agents Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith, and Desmond King bring some uncertainty to the offseason.

 

Katrie Stratman / USA Today Sports Images

Mike McCarthy’s first year at the helm couldn’t have gone much worse. Jerry Jones has decided to stick with him, and the big offseason task will be locking up Dak Prescott, who missed most of the year due to a nasty ankle injury. New defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will have a lot of pressure, but he’s playing with house money after the unit’s awful 2020 performance.

 

Jasen Vinlove / USA Today Sports Images

The loss of Tom Brady overshadowed a series of opt-outs that hamstrung the Patriots in 2020. Bill Belichick has plenty of cap room to work with this offseason, but also a lot of holes to fill, including quarterback. With Belichick’s ability to work magic with personnel moves, it will be an intriguing offseason.

 

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers floundered in the second half of 2020, and offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner was one of the casualties. Ben Roethlisberger seems desperate to right the ship, but the team is in salary cap purgatory with multiple offensive linemen and JuJu Smith-Schuster likely to depart.

 

Tim Fuller / USA Today Sports Images

After a disappointing 2020, head coach Mike Zimmer and quarterback Kirk Cousins could be headed toward a make-or-break season. The Vikings defense saw major regression, partially due to injuries. Still, the team could lose Eric Wilson and Anthony Harris in free agency and still need to address some offensive line issues.

 

Bob Donnan / USA Today Sports Images

Matt Rhule had some ups and downs in his first year as head coach, but generally got positive reviews for his work on a rebuilding team. It remains to be seen if Teddy Bridgewater is the answer at quarterback, and the team has to do something about the pending free agency of Curtis Samuel and multiple starting offensive linemen. The return of Christian McCaffrey from injury, along with the wideout tandem of D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson should make things easier no matter who the quarterback is in 2021.

 

Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images

Arizona fell short of the playoffs, and are looking at some huge potential losses in free agency, most notable Patrick Peterson, Haason Reddick, and Kenyan Drake. The team did make progress in the second season with Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray, but anything short of a playoff berth in 2021 would be a huge letdown.

 

Dale Zanine / USA Today Sports Images

After years of stagnating under Dan Quinn, the Falcons hope new head coach Arthur Smith can take the team to the next level. The team will try to right the ship with veterans Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, but there could be big changes to the complementary pieces as the organization tries to get back on track.

 

Kirby Lee / USA Today Sports Images

Head coach Matt Nagy did just enough to stick around, though it remains to be seen if Mitchell Trubisky did the same. The team has seemingly wasted a top defense over the last few seasons with the inconsistency of the offense, and the potential loss of free-agent wide receiver Allen Robinson could be a dagger. 

 

Kirby Lee / USA Today Sports Images

For the second consecutive year, the Raiders looked like potential contenders early in the season only to collapse late. Derek Carr did show great improvement in his third season under Jon Gruden, though there have been rumors the team is looking to find something better at quarterback. The roster is lightyears ahead of where it was when Gruden came on board but still seems well behind the rival Chiefs in the AFC West.

 

Tim Heitman / USA Today Sports Images

The Eagles could be headed toward a restart if they trade Carson Wentz after already firing head coach Doug Pederson. It’s incredible to think just how quickly things have gone downhill in Philly, and the hiring of new head coach Nick Sirianni didn’t exactly get rave reviews. It remains to be seen if Jalen Hurts is the future, but the teams seem likely to run with him in 2021.

 

Troy Babbitt / USA Today Sports Images

Denver has four straight losing seasons since Gary Kubiak’s departure, and desperately needed better decision making at the top. New GM George Paton has some big decisions to make, including quarterback, where Drew Lock has struggled in two seasons. The team could also lose free agent safety Justin Simmons, and Von Miller’s future is also in doubt. Regardless, head coach Vic Fangio probably won’t have much longer to fix things going into his third year.

 

Bill Streicher / USA Today Sports Images

The terrible division aside, Washington’s playoff berth in 2020 was truly remarkable considering all the issues they had. Many of those same issues remain in 2021 with Washington’s future at quarterback unclear and several prominent free agents headed toward free agency. There’s still reason for optimism with Ron Rivera at the helm and a tremendous front seven on defense.

 

Geoff Burke / USA Today Sports Images

Cincinnati didn’t make much progress in 2020, but they have to be optimistic about the play of Joe Burrow prior to his season-ending knee injury. The first order of business this offseason should be fixing the offensive line, and the team also has several holes on defense that need addressing.

 

Vincent Carchietta / USA Today Sports Images

Daniel Jones didn’t make the progress that the Giants hoped in his sophomore season, though the loss of Saquon Barkley to injury didn’t help. Fans are optimistic about the fight that New York showed under head coach Joe Judge, but improving Jones’ supporting cast should be a big priority this offseason.

 

Chuck Cook / USA Today Sports Images

The hiring of new head coach Robert Saleh got rave reviews, but he needs more talent to worth with. The team seems likely to move on from Sam Darnold at quarterback, but regardless of the quarterback in 2021, desperately need to improve the rest of the offensive roster. Saleh’s impact is expected to be felt immediately on defense, where the Jets made some inexcusable errors last season under Gregg Williams.

 

Joe Camporeale / USA Today Sports Images

Urban Meyer finally made the jump to the NFL, and it’s easy to see why with the draft capital and cap room that the Jaguars have this offseason. It would be an upset if the team didn’t draft Clemson star Trevor Lawerence first overall, but the roster is likely to be a work in progress next season.

 

Derick E. Hingle / USA Today Sports Images

The previous Lions regime hasn’t left the team in a great place, though they did already make a big splash this offseason by trading Matthew Stafford to the Rams for Jared Goff and a huge draft haul. The team could still lose their top three wideouts, led by Kenny Golladay, in free agency, and have a lot of overpaid defensive players who disappointed after joining Matt Patricia. Head coach Dan Campbell will need time.

 

Kirby Lee / USA Today Sports Images

The Texans head coaching job seemed like a dead end this offseason with little cap room or draft picks, and star quarterback Deshaun Watson desperately wanting out of Houston. New head David Culley has paid his dues but will have almost no chance in 2021 if the team doesn’t keep Watson around.

Fair or not, quarterbacks get a healthy amount of praise and/or criticism for their teams’ success. Having the ball in your hands tends to have certain responsibilities, after all. Whether it’s playing mistake-free or carrying their teammates on their backs, quarterbacks play a huge part in the outcome of a game, especially the Super Bowl.The championship game brings together the last passers standing from each conference. Both bring a different flair to the position, but the goal remains the same: Win the game. This has produced some epic quarterback duels, from both players trading scores or young upstarts making names for themselves by knocking off the top dogs. The Super Bowl brings out the best in quarterbacks or crushes them under immense pressure. Either way, it’s highly entertaining. With that in mind, here is a ranking of every Super Bowl quarterback matchup.

 

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

Fans and experts called this the “Blunder Bowl” for a reason. Despite having great quarterbacks in Johnny Unitas and Craig Morton, neither showed up for the biggest game of the year. Unitas didn’t even finish the game, getting knocked out in the second quarter but not before he threw two interceptions compared to just three completions. Morton survived the game but didn’t fare any better, throwing three interceptions and completing less than 50 percent of his passes. Many people want to forget this one.

 

Brian Bahr/Getty Images

Some of the greatest quarterbacks in the game have played in the Super Bowl. Trent Dilfer and Kerry Collins are not among them. Both teams rode running games and strong defenses. It seems that any quarterback who played it safe could’ve been behind center and would have made it to the game. The Super Bowl only confirmed those suspicions. Collins got roughed up by one of the best defenses of all time, getting picked off and sacked four times each. Dilfer technically won the duel by getting the win but didn’t do much, completing less than 50 percent of his passes but throwing for a touchdown. Most Super Bowls have at least one quarterback who performs well. This one had none.

 

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

Yes, it’s Peyton Manning, but he was a shell of his former self, relying on the excellence of his defense to win. Cam Newton established himself as one of the faces of the NFL with 3,837 passing yards, 636 rushing yards and 45 total touchdowns. Newton was expected to excel, but not even he could solve the Denver D. Newton was sacked six times and threw one interception. He also lost two fumbles in a messy game. Manning held on for dear life, throwing for only 141 yards and taking five sacks. Manning-Newton is a great generational debate. Unfortunately, the reality in 2016 was so much worse.

50. Super Bowl VII: Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins, and Billy Kilmer, Washington Redskins

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

Both Super Bowl quarterbacks had less than ideal starts to the season. Bob Griese fractured his leg early in the year, while Billy Kilmer was replaced three games into the season by a 38-year-old Sonny Jurgensen before gaining the starting job again after the veteran went down with an Achilles injury. Both weren’t much of a factor in this Super Bowl. Griese leaned heavily on Larry Csonka and the stable of running backs behind him, completing only eight passes on 11 attempts. Kilmer did the same but ended up contributing to the Redskins’ woes with three interceptions. This was not a quarterback duel fans would remember.

 

5 of 54
49. Super Bowl II: Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers, and Daryle Lamonica, Oakland Raiders

Focus On Sport/Getty Images

The wily veteran vs. the young gunslinger: Starr was playing in what was the last season of his Hall of Fame career, while Lamonica was setting the AFL on fire with his powerful arm. The “Mad Bomber” found out it takes a lot more than a big arm to win the Super Bowl, though, as Starr managed the game to perfection to win his second straight championship. For all his production in the regular season, Lamonica couldn’t move the ball against a stingy Green Bay defense. It didn’t help that the Packers were eating the clock with long possessions, keeping the explosive Oakland offense on the bench. Lamonica got some garbage-time yards and finished with 208 yards and two touchdowns, but Starr expertly led the Packers behind an efficient 202 yards on 13 completions with one touchdown.

 

6 of 54
48. Super Bowl VIII: Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

Much like in the previous year’s Super Bowl, Bob Griese didn’t have to do much to help the Dolphins win their second straight championship. He had to complete six passes this time while leaning on Larry Csonka again. Minnesota’s Fran Tarkenton did his best to dance and scramble the Vikings back in the game but found it hard to do anything against Miami. He finished with 182 passing yards and one interception. It was another snoozer of a quarterback matchup.

 

Rob Tringali/SportsChrome/Getty Image

After the previous few Super Bowl quarterback matchups, this one was a dud. It wasn’t the talent level that was the problem. Ben Roethlisberger got hurt during the season and still put up 2,385 passing yards and 17 touchdowns in 12 games. Matt Hasselbeck rode Shaun Alexander’s 28-touchdown MVP campaign and threw for 24 touchdowns against nine interceptions. The Super Bowl was another story. The game was plagued by questionable officiating, and the players didn’t do much to make it any better. Roethlisberger went 9-of-21 in his pass attempts and was intercepted twice. Hasselbeck did better, with 273 pass yards, but was sacked three times. It was an ugly game in terms of quarterback play.

 

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

With one of the greatest quarterbacks ever on one side and an emerging star in Los Angeles on the other, you would have thought Super Bowl LIII’s quarterback matchup would have produced better results. Unfortunately fans were subjected to one of the most boring offensive displays in this pass-heavy era of football. Jared Goff, who passed for 4,688 passing yards and 32 touchdowns in the 2018 season, was stoned by Bill Belichick, looking lost while only completing 50 percent of his passes and guiding the Rams to three points. Brady, who was no slouch with over 4,300 passing yards, threw his signature dump-offs and slants for a yawn-inducing 262 yards and wasn’t directly responsible for any points scored by New England. Many were expecting fireworks for this matchup but instead got one of the most infuriating Super Bowl games ever.

45. Super Bowl XX: Jim McMahon, Chicago Bears, and Tony Eason, New England Patriots

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

You could’ve literally put any quarterback against the Chicago Bears defense in 1985, and it wouldn’t have mattered. The Bears were going to win no matter what. Jim McMahon was a solid quarterback, completing 12 passes for 256 passing yards, but Tony Eason couldn’t do anything, missing all six of his pass attempts before getting knocked out of the game. This couldn’t be a more forgettable matchup.

 

10 of 54
44. Super Bowl I: Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers, and Len Dawson, Kansas City Chiefs

James Flores/Getty Images

The first Super Bowl featured two of the era’s most accurate passers. Len Dawson led the AFL with a 56 percent completion percentage, while Starr completed 62.2 percent of his passes to lead the NFL. Even though Dawson crushed Starr in the touchdown department (26-14), it was Starr who prevailed in the championship game. After star receiver Boyd Dowler went down, Starr rode veteran tight end Max McGee the entire game, completing seven passes to him for 138 yards. Dawson couldn’t keep up with Starr, finishing with 39 fewer pass yards and throwing a critical third quarter interception that gave Green Bay the momentum the rest of the game. The Packers won, 35-10.

 

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

The Colts were 18-point favorites to destroy the less-productive Jets. A big reason for that huge spread was Morrall, who led the NFL with 26 touchdowns in 1968. Joe Namath, who was looked like a woefully inferior quarterback in comparison, boldly claimed the Jets would win the Super Bowl three days before the game was played. The rest was history. Morrall couldn’t solve the Jets defense, throwing three interceptions before being replaced by veteran Johnny Unitas. Namath, on the other hand, dinked and dunked his way past the Colts’ blitzing defense, finishing with 206 yards on 17 completions. He may not have torched the AFL during the season, but he did what he needed to do to win the league’s first Super Bowl.

 

12 of 54
42. Super Bowl IX: Terry Bradshaw, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

With two historic defenses in this Super Bowl, there was little hope that either quarterback was going to flex his muscles much. Terry Bradshaw found some success getting on Franco Harris’ back and riding his 158 rushing yards. He finished the game with nine completions and a touchdown. Fran Tarkenton once again was foiled by a great defense, throwing three interceptions, and the “Steel Curtain” stuffed Chuck Foreman time and time again.

 

13 of 54
41. Super Bowl IV: Len Dawson, Kansas City Chiefs, and Joe Kapp, Minnesota Vikings

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

Joe Kapp wasn’t a passer like Len Dawson, but he was so tough on runs from the quarterback position that he earned the nickname “indestructible.” Dawson had a rough season, missing six games with a knee injury, and he barely qualified for the playoffs. The fortunes flipped in the Super Bowl. Kapp never had to play against a defense as big as the Chiefs’. He struggled to find receivers, throwing two interceptions, and ran for only 9 yards. On the other side of the field, Dawson had an easier time taking advantage of open receivers on the short routes, throwing for 142 yards on 12 completions with one touchdown. Neither quarterback lit the world on fire, as the defenses dominated this game.

 

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

The 33-year-old Jim Plunkett revived his career with the Raiders after stinking it up in New England and San Francisco. With Ron Jaworski leading the Eagles with 3,529 yards and 27 touchdowns in the regular season, this was set to be a great matchup. Well, at least Plunkett came to play. Plunkett put on a deep-ball clinic, throwing for three touchdowns and 261 yards on 13 completions. Jaworski, on the other hand, went the opposite direction, getting picked off three times. The Eagles scored only 10 points, and the Raiders won easily.

 

15 of 54
39. Super Bowl XVII: Joe Theismann, Washington Redskins, and David Woodley, Miami Dolphins

Andrew D. Bernstein/Getty Images

The quarterback position and the Miami Dolphins have a curious relationship. The team reached four Super Bowls to this point without a quarterback who put up huge numbers. Even though this matchup featured the top-rated passer in the NFC in Joe Theismann, not even he was enough to make this duel intriguing with David Woodley behind center for Miami. Woodley completed four of his 14 pass attempts for 96 yards, with a majority of them coming from a 76-yard scoring connection with Jimmy Cefalo in the first quarter. Theismann did his best to make the quarterback battle semi-exciting, completing 15-of-23 passes for 143 yards with two touchdowns. His two interceptions were an eyesore though, making this matchup a bore.

 

16 of 54
38. Super Bowl XI: Ken Stabler, Oakland Raiders, and Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings

Focus on Sport/Getty Images

The third time was not the charm for Fran Tarkenton. Even after establishing himself as the league’s all-time leader in pass completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns, he couldn’t get over the hump to win a Super Bowl. Tarkenton had trouble with the Raiders’ 3-4 defense filled with aggressive, hard-hitting players. Ken Stabler, on the other hand, had no problem solving the Purple People Eaters defense, handing the ball off to Clarence Davis and Mark van Eeghen and managing the game perfectly by completing 12-of-19 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown.

 

17 of 54
37. Super Bowl VI: Roger Staubach, Dallas Cowboys, and Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins

Kidwiler Collection/Diamond Images/Getty Images

Two young, hotshot quarterbacks met in Super Bowl VI, with Roger Staubach earning the starting job in his third year, while Bob Griese threw for nearly 2,100 yards and 19 touchdowns. The former Navy Vietnam veteran rode a productive run game and chipped in with 119 yards on 12 completions, including two passing touchdowns. Griese couldn’t carry the load after his running game failed him, throwing for 134 yards, getting picked off once and fumbling the ball. He would have a chance to redeem himself soon enough.

 

18 of 54
36. Super Bowl XII: Roger Staubach, Dallas Cowboys, and Craig Morton, Denver Broncos

Bettmann Collection/Getty Images

Roger Staubach replaced Craig Morton as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback in 1971, and Dallas never looked back. Morton got a chance for revenge against his former team in Super Bowl XII. He did not capitalize. Morton fell victim to Dallas’ Doomsday Defense, throwing four interceptions and completing only four passes for 39 yards. Staubach had more success against the vaunted Orange Crush Denver defense, throwing for 183 yards and one touchdown. This was hyped a revenge game but ended up being a dud.

 

19 of 54
35. Super Bowl XIV: Terry Bradshaw, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Vince Ferragamo, Los Angeles Rams

Focus On Sport/Getty Images

It was already a miracle that the Rams made it into the playoffs, and they got to the Super Bowl, which was even more unbelievable. But it was no thanks to quarterback Vince Ferragamo. The fourth-round draft pick was expected to get outdueled by Terry Bradshaw, and he didn’t do much to fight that. Ferragamo finished the game with 212 passing yards but never hit pay dirt for a score and had one pass intercepted. Bradshaw may have had three passes picked off, but he added two touchdowns and threw for 309 yards. There wasn’t much back and forth like there was with him and Staubach the previous year. It was all Bradshaw this time.

 

20 of 54
34. Super Bowl XVIII: Jim Plunkett, Los Angeles Raiders, and Joe Theismann, Washington Redskins

Ronald C. Modra/Sports Imagery/Getty Images

Two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks usually provide a matchup full of potential. With MVP-winning Joe Theismann and Jim Plunkett still showing off his big arm, everyone was expecting an explosive Super Bowl. Neither delivered. Plunkett took a backseat to running back Marcus Allen, who rushed for 191 yards. The Raiders quarterback at least notched one touchdown. Theismann couldn’t even manage that, throwing two interceptions. The Raiders made the Super Bowl a laugher, winning 38-9.

 

Rob Brown/Getty Images

Before Phil Simms was doing Super Bowl broadcasts, he was on the field winning one. The “Big Blue Wrecking Crew” Giants defense may have gotten the headlines, but Simms led the offense with 3,487 passing yards. John Elway was already entertaining crowds with his ability to scramble. In the Super Bowl, Simms outdueled Elway with three touchdowns, while Elway had a tough time moving the ball against Lawrence Taylor and Co. He still finished with over 300 yards passing, but he was unable to make the Super Bowl intriguing.

 

22 of 54
32. Super Bowl XLVIII: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, and Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

You would think in a matchup featuring a record-setting Peyton Manning, who threw for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, would be exciting no matter what. It was quite the contrary when he ran into the Legion of Boom. Manning was throttled by Seattle, throwing two interceptions, getting sacked once and losing a fumble. Russell Wilson gobbled up the extra possessions his defense gave him, managing the game perfectly with 206 yards and two touchdowns. What was supposed to be a competitive matchup ended up being a laugher.

 

23 of 54
31. Super Bowl XXII: Doug Williams, Washington Redskins, and John Elway, Denver Broncos

Mike Powell/Getty Images

Redskins quarterback Doug Williams started the season on the bench but took over the starting job at the end of the season. In five games, he piled up 1,156 yards and 11 touchdowns, but he was running into a buzz saw in John Elway, who just completed another excellent season in which he threw for nearly 3,200 yards. Instead, Williams stole the show. The first African-American quarterback to start a Super Bowl threw four touchdowns. Unable to shake his Super Bowl woes, Elway threw three interceptions and was sacked five times. Williams wowed the crowd, but Elway couldn’t join him in making this a more entertaining game.

 

24 of 54
30. Super Bowl XIX: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and Dan Marino, Miami Dolphins

Sylvia Allen/Getty Images

Montana vs. Mr. 5,000 — this was going to be the quarterback matchup to end all quarterback matchups. Dan Marino became the first quarterback to eclipse 5,000 yards in a season, and Joe Montana threw for 28 touchdowns. Well, at least one of them showed up. Montana destroyed Marino in a head-to-head battle, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for another. Marino did the best he could, throwing for 318 yards, but he was picked off twice. Many people argued that Marino was well on his way to supplanting Montana at the top of the quarterback mountain, but the 49ers legend put those statements to bed.

 

25 of 54
29. Super Bowl XXIV: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and John Elway, Denver Broncos

Two legendary quarterbacks faced off in Super Bowl XXIV, and both confirmed their respective reputations through their performances, for better or for worse. John Elway came into the game losing his last two Super Bowls, and he didn’t do much to quell criticism that he couldn’t win the big game. He didn’t have his best season, and that inconsistency showed in the championship game, where he threw two interceptions and was sacked four times. Montana cemented his penchant for big performances, pummeling the Broncos into submission through the air with 297 passing yards and five touchdowns to set a Super Bowl record. He didn’t need Elway to give the fans a show.

In 1991, Mark Rypien and Jim Kelly were lighting up the NFL. Rypien threw for 3,564 yards and 28 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. Kelly continued to masterfully orchestrate the K-Gun offense, throwing for 3,844 yards with a league-high 33 touchdowns. Unfortunately, this was another matchup he did not capitalize on. Kelly got thrown around by the Washington defense, getting sacked five times and throwing four interceptions. Rypien took advantage of Kelly’s miscues, throwing for 292 yards and two touchdowns. This wasn’t the first or last time Kelly was bested on the biggest stage.

27. Super Bowl XXVIII: Troy Aikman, Dallas Cowboys, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills

For the first time in NFL history, the same two teams made it to the Super Bowl in back-to-back years. Aikman-Kelly was set up to be a barnburner, with Aikman still commanding an efficient offense, while Kelly led the Bills to the best record in the AFC. Unfortunately for the Bills, history would repeat itself. Kelly attempted 50 passes but had a hard time moving the ball, with one interception and three sacks. Aikman didn’t have to dominate the game like he did the year before, with Emmitt Smith rushing for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Aikman and the Cowboys coasted to another easy win, and the Jim Kelly Bills earned the dubious honor of being known as the greatest team to never win a Super Bowl.

26. Super Bowl XLI: Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts, and Rex Grossman, Chicago Bears

Peyton Manning’s first Super Bowl was a momentous occasion with one of the greatest quarterbacks finally making it to the championship game. Too bad there wasn’t a similar quarterback on the other side of the field to make the game interesting. Rex Grossman was a fine quarterback, but he didn’t have the clout that would’ve made this a heavyweight battle. He finished the game with 20 completions for only 165 yards and was picked off twice. Not even Manning lit up the Miami sky. He finished with 247 yards, a touchdown and an interception. It wasn’t his best game, but he got the job done.

25. Super Bowl XXVII: Troy Aikman, Dallas Cowboys, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills

It was another year in which Jim Kelly dominated the AFC in the no-huddle offense, but a new challenger rose from the NFC. Troy Aikman led a Cowboys team that finished second in the league in scoring, throwing for 3,445 yards and 23 touchdowns. Aikman lit up the Bills, throwing four touchdowns and going 22-of-30 on his pass attempts. After throwing two interceptions, Kelly reinjured his knee that kept him out of the first two playoff games, knocking him out of the game. The Bills lost for the third straight year in the Super Bowl.

24. Super Bowl XXIX: Steve Young, San Francisco 49ers, and Stan Humphries, San Diego Chargers

Stan Humphries was thrust into the national spotlight by making the Super Bowl with the surprise Chargers. He threw for 3,209 yards, but on the other side of the field he ran into Steve Young, the 49ers quarterback who had Joe Montana’s big shoes to fill and a lot of questions as to if he could win a big game. He made sure people knew he was ready against San Diego. Young torched the Chargers for 325 yards and six touchdowns, breaking Montana’s previous record of five touchdown passes set in Super Bowl XXIV. Humphries’ luck ran out against the 49ers, throwing two interceptions and getting sacked twice before being replaced in the fourth quarter. The one-sided affair made this a mediocre matchup.

23. Super Bowl XXV: Jeff Hostetler, New York Giants, and Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills

Jim Kelly and Buffalo’s no-huddle K-Gun offense was supposed to be the main draw in the matchup with Jeff Hostetler playing game manager filling in for an injured Phil Simms. The game was a lot more entertaining than that. Hostetler and Kelly battled to a near draw, with Hostetler throwing for 222 yards and a touchdown, while Kelly put up 212 yards, including 28 yards late in the fourth quarter to set up the potential game-winning field goal. However, as many Buffalo fans know, Scott Norwood missed the kick, giving the Giants the win.

22. Super Bowl XVI: Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers, and Ken Anderson, Cincinnati Bengals

In terms of quarterback matchups, this was marquee-worthy. A young Joe Montana emerged for the 49ers, leading the league with a 63.7 completion percentage. On the other side, Ken Anderson won the NFL MVP and Comeback Player of the Year, throwing for 3,754 yards and 29 touchdowns. Their duel in Super Bowl was impressive. Montana started the scoring with a rushing touchdown in the first quarter and followed that up with a passing score in the second. After the 49ers jumped to a 20-0 lead at halftime, it was all Anderson from there. His third-quarter rushing touchdown was the only score that quarter, and he notched two fourth-quarter throwing scores, one of them with 22 seconds left to pull the Bengals within five. The only thing Anderson needed was time, something he was not afforded after a failed onside kick gave Montana his first Super Bowl win, starting a legendary career.
