  • this was really a good superbowl

    8.0
    in this superbowl the bufflow bills were going final to the superbowl and they were playing the giants who had a good amout of good players and this would be a really good matchup and the score went back forth until the giants were name victoris after a hard missed kick by the bufflow bills which was heartake for them. and would be forever remember in the sports world the kicker that blew the game for the bufflow bills when the game was on the line. and giants would win even more .years later. this was a good superbowl i thought .moreless
