The Super Bowl is the one game every year where not only the big-name players play big, but also unlikely contributors can become the X-factor to a team’s success, capping off a year-long championship run.

We bring you the top 10 X-factor players of Super Bowl XLV. May the spirit of Lombardi shine down upon these players so that they may bring us the spectacular plays that make the NFL and Super Bowl Sunday so great.
