The 2008 championship game was a defensive struggle through three quarters, with the teams combining for only 10 points. But the drama began to build in the fourth quarter when it was apparent that New York might actually deny New England a place in history. The Patriots were seeking to become the first 19-0 team, but a New York pass rush sacked Tom Brady five times and harassed him countless others. David Tyree's 32-yard reception with a minute to play -- after an improbable third-down escape of a sack by Eli Manning -- set up Manning's winning 13-yard score to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds to play. Tyree's helmet catch is arguably the most memorable play in Super Bowl history.
