Howard's 99-yard return sent the Patriots packing.
January 26, 1997
New Orleans, Louisiana Superdome

QB Brett Favre threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score as the Packers won their first Super Bowl in XXIX years. Howard, the league's premier kick-return man, became the first special teams player to be named Super Bowl MVP. He returned two punts for 34 and 32 yards to set up 10 Green Bay points in the first half. Then, after New England closed to within 27-21 late in the third quarter, Howard split the Patriots' coverage for a 99-yard kickoff return that clinched the championship. "I knew that sooner or later I was going to scorch 'em," he said.
