Like Super Bowl XLVIII after it, this breathtaking Super Bowl featured some career-defining big plays — see No. 22 on this list (Kurt Warner to Isaac Bruce for the winner) and No. 32 on this list (Steve McNair’s great escape) — but the greatest tackle in Super Bowl history is the one that sticks out most.
With five seconds remaining in regulation, the Titans faced a first-and-goal situation from the Rams’ 10-yard line after the aforementioned McNair play. McNair connected with receiver Kevin Dyson, who for a brief moment appeared to have a clear path to the end zone, but Rams linebacker Mike Jones stepped up and made an open-field tackle at the 1-yard line, preventing the game-tying touchdown and saving the Super Bowl win for the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams.
