Sports fans across the country are practicing their rallying cheers and dusting off their good luck charms. On Sunday, February 12, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will go head-to-head in American football’s most anticipated game of the year.
Before the game’s competitors were set, 14 teams gave their all in the playoffs trying to secure that top spot. The rest of us will start making our own predictions over beer and nachos with our friends.
Keep reading for our predictions and memorable moments from past Super Bowls to get you amped for gameday!
Some of the Coolest Super Bowl Moments
In 1987, a long-standing football game tradition was born. The NY Giants knocked out the Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos. In their gleeful celebration, the team members showered Coach Parcells with Gatorade!
Possibly the wildest comeback in sports history happened in 2017 when the Falcons blew a 28-3 lead over the Patriots. The Patriots nailed every point they needed to tie up the game and went into the first-ever Super Bowl OT. Final score: 34-28, Pats.
Not trying to give all of the attention to the Giants, but we’d be remiss not to mention David Tyree in this convo. In 2008, much to everyone’s astonishment, he pulled off the most incredible catch ever. Surrounded by fierce opponents, Tyree caught the ball securely between his hand and helmet!
One of the biggest blunders in football history happened during the 1973 Super Bowl. Washington nearly sealed a 17-0 win at the end of an impressive 17-0 season. They were “this close,” but kicker Garo Yepremian’s kick was blocked! He tried to salvage it with a terrible pass, but the Dolphins intercepted it and scored a touchdown instead.
Super Bowl Predictions for 2023
People get a little crazy with their Super Bowl predictions sometimes. They’ll bet on the color of the winning team’s QB’s socks if you let them. We’re not going that far, but we do have ideas about who’s going all the way this year.
In this year’s Big Game, we think the Chiefs will dump the Gatorade and bring home the Lombardi trophy. What do you think? Click here to register for our Bout Time Football Pick ‘Em Challenge and make your own Super Bowl predictions.
