We’ve seen it before.
With one game to win it all, all hands are on deck. Players come from obscurity to make household names for themselves in the biggest sporting event of the year.
The Super Bowl has hosted some of the single greatest moments in sports history.
You remember watching Super Bowl XLII?
Eli Manning avoids being sacked by the Patriots and heaves the ball down the field only for… David Tyree to catch the ball using the side of his helmet for support!?
Are you kidding me!?
A perennial special-teamer comes up with one of the biggest plays in Super Bowl history to help put the New York Giants in scoring position to take the lead over the undefeated powerhouse that was the New England Patriots!?
Tyree caught his only touchdown of the season in that game.
Eli Manning may have been selected over David Tyree for MVP honors, but we will never forget Tyree’s bizarre, out-of-this-world performance.
Which overlooked players could step up in Super Bowl XLV and steal the MVP award?
