  • The Super Bowl is the biggest football game of the year. Each year since 1967 two teams battle it out on the gridiron for the NFL's most prized possession, the Lombardi Trophy, which was named after legendary Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi, the winner of the first two Super Bowls. The Pittsburgh Steelers hold the record for most Super Bowl victories with six. The Dallas Cowboys have the most appearances in The Super Bowl with eight.Four teams have never made it to the Super Bowl; they are the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Houston Texans.moreless

    • Baltimore Linebacker and Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis: Our defense has played all year long like this. We're the best defense in NFL history.

      Baltimore Linebacker Ray Lewis: We didn't just break records, we shattered them. We dominated literally. This is what you work your whole life for. You come from childhood, dreaming whatever you want it to be, but now, at 25, to be a world champion, what else can I dream of?

      Baltimore Linebacker Ray Lewis: If you put this in a storybook, nobody would believe it.

    • New York Coach Jim Fassel: I didn't expect to turn over the ball five times. You can't play football like that. When you do that against a team like that, this is what happens.

    • Baltimore Quarterback Trent Dilfer: I didn't throw the ball very well. But we talked about making big plays and we made them when we needed them. We aren't pretty, like St. Louis (Rams), but we got the job done. This is a team that puts wins ahead of stats.

    • New York Defensive End Michael Strahan: We didn't go out and create turnovers. It was going to be a field-position battle. It was going to be a turnover battle and we lost both of those. If you do that against a team like that, it's not going to help your chances.

    • (on their strategy against St. Louis' receivers)
      New England Cornerback Ty Law: We went out there and challenged them. We challenged them physically. We challenged them mentally.

      New England Cornerback Otis Smith: We pressed them, man, man, man, man. And that's what we said we were going to do and that's what we did.

    • St. Louis Quarterback Kurt Warner: This is tough to swallow. Our defense played great. The offense basically gave up the first 17 points on turnovers.

    • New England Kicker Adam Vintieri: We shocked the world but we didn't shock ourselves. We're champions.

    • Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden: This is a great defensive team. Against the forward pass, they say bring it on. That's what they like to defense. We can rush the passer and play pass defense.

      Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden: By God, his is Tampa Bay's night. We're World Champions and we're going to enjoy it.
