Ahead of the 48th version, we take a look back at the greatest ever season ending games.
The Super Bowl in the NFL is not so much as a finale of a season, as it it a cultural phenomenon.
From the commercials shown during the game to who is playing at half-time and how many people around the world watch it, the Super Bowl often re-writes the record books in world sport.
But there is only one record book that really matters at the end of the final day of the season, which team is listed as winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Some of the greatest players and teams down through the ages have lifted the trophy and fanatix will look back on the 10 greatest games in the history of the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl XLII
New York Giants defeated New England Patriots 17-14
When arguably the greatest play in Super Bowl history is crucial to the winning drive against an undefeated, seemingly invincible team, you’ve got a valid case for this one being the best ever.
After New England took a 14-10 lead late in the fourth quarter, Eli Manning led the Giants on a gritty 12-play, 83-yard drive in the final minutes.
It included his improbable escape from the clutches of the Patriots pass rush and 32-yard heave that David Tyree somehow caught and held to his helmet as he was tackled by Rodney Harrison.
Four plays later, Plaxico Burress caught the winning TD with 35 seconds on the clock, ending New England’s dream of 19-0 perfection.
