Super Bowl XXXVI (2002)

New England 20, St. Louis 17

With Super Bowl XLVII scheduled for New Orleans in February, here is's ranking of the top Super Bowls in the Big Easy:

Adam Vinatieri made a 48-yard field goal as time expired to give the Patriots their first Super Bowl title in this 2002 thriller in the Superdome. Matched against Kurt Warner, Tom Brady went 16 of 27 for 145 yards, but it was the drive on the last series that was truly noteworthy: Operating without any timeouts, Brady completed three short passes to reach the Pats' 41 with 33 seconds left. He threw an incompletion, then two more passes to reach the Rams' 30 to set up the winning kick.
