The great quarterbacks keep coming
Down to the wire
Past five Super Bowls, beginning with the 2007 season:
Game Site Score
XLII Glendale, Ariz. N.Y. Giants 17, New England 14 Eli Manning 32-yard pass to David Tyree
XLIII Tampa, Fla. Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23
Ben Roethlisberger 6-yard TD pass to Santonio Holmes
XLIV Miami New Orleans 31, Indianapolis 17 Tracy Porter 74-yard interception return for TD
XLV Arlington, Texas Green Bay 31, Pittsburgh 25 Fourth-down stop on Steelers’ final drive
XLVI Indianapolis N.Y. Giants 21, New England 17 Eli Manning 38-yard pass to Mario Manningham
The list of quarterbacks who have won recent Super Bowls is impressive. So is the list of losers. In other words, Tom Brady, Kurt Warner, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers may lose, but they’re going to keep their teams in the game.
The unknown of Super Bowl XLVII is how Baltimore’s Joe Flacco and San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick will perform on this stage. Neither should be overwhelmed — which means another Super Bowl will be worth watching.
