The Louisiana Superdome’s most recent Super Bowl, on February 3, 2002 was perhaps its most exciting.
The heavily favored St. Louis Rams entered the game looking to win their second championship in three seasons, but it was the New England Patriots who would end up launching a dynasty that day at Super Bowl XXXVI.
The Patriots’ defense stifled the Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” offense for most of the day, but quarterback Kurt Warner rallied late to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
On January 26, 1997, New Orleans hosted its eighth Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers met the New England Patriots for all the marbles at the Louisiana Superdome for Super Bowl XXXI.
In the days leading up to the Big Game, local media and fans alike were mostly fixated on one player: Green Bay quarterback and emerging star Brett Favre, who grew up a mere 60 miles away from the Superdome in the tiny town of Kiln, Mississippi.
Long before the San Francisco 49ers descended on the Crescent City for this year’s Super Bowl XLVII, the franchise cemented its 1980s dynasty in dominating fashion, defeating the Denver Broncos 55-10 at the Louisiana Superdome on Jan. 28, 1990.
The 45-point margin of victory remains the most lopsided in Super Bowl history.
San Francisco’s victory in Super Bowl XXIV was the fourth world championship for Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and his 49ers, but only the first for rookie head coach George Seifert.
Super Bowl XX played out exactly how everyone expected. The Chicago Bears crushed the New England Patriots 46-10.
The Bears, coached by Hall of Famer Mike Ditka (who won Super Bowl VI in New Orleans as a player), finished the season with a 15-1 record and dominated almost every opponent they faced during the 1985 season, while the Patriots earned a wild card playoff berth and went on an improbable playoff run to reach the Big Game.
