Super Bowl 2011: 10 X-Factors That Could Swing the Game

The Super Bowl seems to change on the momentum of a big play every year, and with the star studded cast of X-Factors on this years two teams, Super Bowl XLV should be no different.

Last year it was the onside kick to open up the second half. Two years ago it was Santonio Holmes catch in the corner of the end zone. Three years ago it was David Tyree catching the ball against his helmet. I could go on and on but you get the picture, a big crucial play will be made.

With that in mind I have compiled a list of 10 x-factors that I think could cause that big play. These are in no particular order because to be honest it's not easy picking a single biggest x-factor. I mean who would have ever picked David Tyree?

Feel free to leave your comments of who you think could be the player or set of players that will flip the tables during the game.
