Not after one of the greatest and weirdest Super Bowls ever, one in which the halftime show, as well as the game itself, would end in a flash.
Like Janet Jackson's one-headlight salute—and an equally immodest streaker's fiasco preceding the second-half kickoff—this back-and-forth battle between a pair of flawed but gutty teams was a revelation.
Though Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme provided some stirring moments and New England kicker Adam Vinatieri, as he had two years ago against the St.
Louis Rams, nailed the championship-winning field goal in the final seconds, it was Brady of passing for yards and three touchdowns whose star shone brightest in Space City.
As calm as he was in the game's tensest moments, Brady was drained and out-of-sorts upon its completion. To say that he was awestruck is not an understatement.
I mean, you dream about playing football, and you have your fantasies, but you don't dream about winning Super Bowls like this. The way it ended is just incredible.
The use of the second person in interviews was one of Montana's habits, a way of deflecting the attention that his greatness attracted. For Brady, too, the praise will keep coming.
Right now I'm hanging on for dear life. It's a gracious sentiment but not an entirely accurate one. Logos via Sports Logos. Game Info.

The Panthers then eliminated the Rams on the road, 29—23 in double overtime. Louis built a 6—0 lead early in the second quarter, but Carolina took the lead after Muhammad's fumble recovery in the end zone.
Both teams spent the rest of the second and the third quarter exchanging field goals before Brad Hoover's 7-yard rushing touchdown gave the Panthers a 23—12 fourth quarter lead.
However, the Rams rallied back with a touchdown, a successful two-point conversion , and a field goal to send the game into overtime.
Both teams missed field goals in the first overtime period, but Delhomme threw a yard touchdown pass to Smith on the first play of the second overtime period to win the game.
Philadelphia was coming off of a 20—17 overtime win over the Green Bay Packers , that included quarterback Donovan McNabb 's yard pass to Freddie Mitchell on a famous play known as " 4th and 26 ".
This was the third consecutive NFC Championship Game appearance for Philadelphia, and thus they were heavily favored to win.
But Carolina's defense only allowed a field goal and held McNabb to just 10 of 22 completions for yards. Ricky Manning also intercepted McNabb 3 times.
Although Carolina's offense only scored 14 points, it was more than enough for the team to earn their first trip to the Super Bowl with a 14—3 win.
The Panthers became the first No. In doing so, they were also the first division winner to advance to the league championship after playing three playoff games.
Prior to Super Bowl XVII , the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins both won three playoff games to reach the Super Bowl, but that came during the strike-shortened season when the regular season was reduced to nine games and the playoffs were expanded to 16 teams, with no teams receiving first-round byes.
The Colts, Cardinals, and the Giants in , like the Panthers, were division winners in those years Although in the Colts case, they played the No.
The Super Bowl would mark the third game out of four of the playoffs in which Carolina scored 29 points. New England jumped to 14—7 lead in the first half with a touchdown pass by Brady and a touchdown run from Smith.
However, quarterback Steve McNair 's yard touchdown pass to receiver Derrick Mason tied the game in the third period.
With remaining in the game, Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri made a yard field goal to take the lead. New England's defense later clinched a victory as they stopped the Titans from scoring on fourth down on their last drive of the game.
The Colts entered the game leading the NFL in passing yards and ranked third in total offensive yards. With quarterback Peyton Manning , wide receiver Marvin Harrison , and running back Edgerrin James , the Colts had scored 79 points in their 2 playoff victories against the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs , including a 38—31 victory over the Chiefs in the first punt -less game in NFL playoff history.
However, New England's defense dominated the Colts, only allowing 14 points, intercepting 4 passes from Manning 3 of them by Ty Law , and forcing a safety.
Although New England's offense only scored one touchdown, Vinatieri scored 5 field goals to make up the difference.
The game was broadcast on television in the United States by CBS , with Greg Gumbel handling the play-by-play duties and color commentator Phil Simms in the broadcast booth.
Armen Keteyian and Bonnie Bernstein roamed the sidelines. Westwood One carried the game nationwide over terrestrial radio with Marv Albert on play-by-play and Boomer Esiason on color commentary, with Jim Gray hosting the pregame and halftime shows.
Both teams passed on the opportunity for their starters to be introduced individually before the game, a move perpetuated by the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI.
The game was held exactly one year, to the day, after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster , in Houston, the same city as the Johnson Space Center.
Tittle , Mike Singletary , Gene Upshaw. Tittle tossed the coin. As the designated home team in the annual rotation between AFC and NFC teams, the Patriots elected to wear their home navy uniforms with silver pants, while the Panthers wore their road white uniforms with white pants.
After a brief appearance by Simpson, the show began with a joint performance by marching bands the Spirit of Houston , from the University of Houston , and the " Ocean of Soul " of Texas Southern University.
Next, Janet Jackson made her first appearance, singing " All for You ". Then, P. Diddy , Nelly , and Kid Rock appeared respectively, and performed a mixture of their hits.
The performance featured many suggestive dance moves by both Timberlake and Jackson. As the song reached the final line, "I'm gonna have you naked by the end of this song," Timberlake pulled off a part of Jackson's costume, revealing her outer right breast adorned with a large, sun-shaped nipple shield , a piece of jewelry worn to accentuate the appearance of a nipple piercing.
CBS quickly cut to an aerial view of the stadium; however, the action was too late to be effective.
Many people considered this indecent exposure , and numerous viewers contacted the network to complain, saying it was inappropriate in the context of a football game.
Auch ein eroberter Fumble von Jake Delhomme führte zu keinen Punkten. Die Panthers blockten zu Beginn des zweiten Viertels einen weiteren Fieldgoalversuch von Adam Vinatieri und verhinderten so in Rückstand zu geraten.
By the end of the season, Dillon had lost his starting job to running back Rudi Johnson , and thus demanded to be traded. Dillon became a significant offensive weapon for the Patriots, recording 1, rushing yards franchise record and 12 touchdowns, both career highs, and was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his career.

With their patchwork secondary, the Patriots ranked just 17th in passing yards allowed 3, and 22nd in completions allowed Brown actually turned out to be very effective playing as a defensive back, ranking second on the team with 3 interceptions.
Safety Rodney Harrison was also an impact player, leading the team with tackles while also recording 3 sacks and 2 interceptions. Up front, the Patriots' defensive line was anchored by Pro Bowler Richard Seymour , who recorded 5 sacks and 1 fumble recovery.
The Eagles hired Andy Reid as their head coach in following two straight losing seasons. The Eagles achieved the best regular season record in the conference during the combined , , and seasons with a total of 35 wins out of 48 games, but lost the NFC Championship Game in each of those 3 years.
Prior to the season, the Eagles traded for wide receiver Terrell Owens to be the impact player to help get them to the Super Bowl.
Owens joined the team after 8 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Nevertheless, Owens became the Eagles' deep-ball threat, finishing the season with 77 receptions for 1, yards and 14 touchdowns.
McNabb had the best season of his career in , completing out of 64 percent passes for 3, yards, 31 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions, making him the first quarterback to ever throw for more than 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions in a season.
Wide receiver Todd Pinkston was also a reliable target, recording 36 catches for yards. Philadelphia's running game was not as strong as their passing attack, ranking just 24th in the league in rushing yards 1, Three of their four starters in the defensive secondary were named to the Pro Bowl: Cornerback Lito Sheppard 1 sack, 5 interceptions, return yards and 2 touchdowns , safety Michael Lewis 88 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 1 sack, and 1 interception and safety Brian Dawkins 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, and 4 interceptions for 40 return yards , while their fourth starter, cornerback Sheldon Brown , also enjoyed a solid year 89 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 2 interceptions.
Pro Bowl middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter , who only started 9 games, recorded 69 tackles and 1 sack.
The Eagles started the regular season with seven straight wins before suffering a loss to the Steelers. After that, they finished the season with a 13—3 record.
However, during a December 19, 12—7 win over the Dallas Cowboys , Owens was seriously injured on a "horse-collar tackle" by Cowboys defensive back Roy Williams and had to miss the rest of the regular season and the playoffs.
Despite the loss of Owens, the Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings , 27—14, and the Atlanta Falcons , 27—10, in the playoffs with relative ease.
