Topic - Super Bowls
The Super Bowl is the championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. The Super Bowl uses Roman numerals to identify each game, rather than the year in which it is held. For example, Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the regular season played in 1966, while Super Bowl XLV was played on February 6, 2011, to determine the champion of the 2010 regular season. - Source: Wikipedia
Chris Davis ran into the end zone and etched his name in college football lore.
The head of New Jersey's largest utility company and other officials involved in planning for February's Super Bowl said Thursday they have taken numerous measures to ensure there will be no repeat of the power failure that caused a delay at this year's game in New Orleans.
The Vince Lombardi Trophy will be awarded in just under three months' time, but the competition has already begun in earnest for a more lucrative prize.
Christensen's son, Toby Christensen, said his father died at Intermountain Medical Center near his home in Alpine, Utah. He had been waiting for 10 months for a donor liver.
With his penchant for poetry, Todd Christensen never fit the Raiders' renegade mold. But that didn't keep him from becoming one of the team's best all-time tight ends.
Fans in the stands at Super Bowls past only think they've seen it all.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and his owners are taking advantage of a lull in the tourism calendar to turn a swath of Manhattan into a playground and make cash registers sing. A 180 foot-tall toboggan slide will be plopped down in Times Square, and a stretch of Broadway from 34th Street to 48th will be closed to traffic, renamed "Super Bowl Boulevard," and converted into a rollicking theme park, merchandise shop and concert venue called the "NFL Experience."
Like Shanahan's previous 54 games with the Redskins, Sunday offered teases of success. But teases don't contend for Super Bowls. Teases hang around long enough to see their hopes evaporate into the city's thin air in a flurry of mistakes that made Shanahan's heady days seem more distant than the highlight video.
Sunday, after his starting lineup is introduced before a hostile crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Broncos will show a highlight clip of the Shanahan years, which included those back-to-back titles in 1997 and 1998. It's a nice gesture, but not one Shanahan cares to think about.
Thanks to the musings of his former owner, Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis this week has turned into something less than the warm-and-fuzzy homecoming it could have been.
Coaching not to lose against Tom Brady almost guarantees a loss. That's exactly what happened to Sean Payton, Rob Ryan and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Those three cities were selected from a pool of six at the owners' meetings Tuesday. Should Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy get the game, it would be the first cold-weather stadium to host two Super Bowls.
The 2018 Super Bowl could be headed back to a recent host city. Or to one that hasn't staged the game in more than two decades.
Ben Roethlisberger took the snap and tried to stay upright long enough for his receivers to get open on the fourth-and-17 play with time running out.
