The Greatest Super Bowl Matchups Of All Time

List RulesVote on the MATCHUP you think is the best, be impartial and look past your own bias when voting

A list of the greatest Super Bowl matchups of all time. Since the first Super Bowl in 1967, teams from the AFC (formerly AFL) and NFC (formerly NFL) have battled it out to see who could take the Vince Lombardi trophy back to their respective cities. The Super Bowl will usually pit the best two teams in the NFL against one another, and often times, the game is almost as good as the hype. There are some games that rise above others and are considered the greatest Super Bowls of all time. But not surprisingly, fans cannot agree what game is the truly the best ever.

There are plenty of great ones to choose from. Who can forget the classic tussles between the Cowboys and Steelers, Giants and Patriots, and the 49ers and Bengals? These teams have met multiple times (so have the Cowboys and Bills), and the games were considered instant classics. The same goes for the epic Super Bowl XLIII, which saw the Steelers and Cardinals battle in a back-and-forth tilt, with the Steelers pulling out a victory in the final minute of a game that had multiple lead changes in the final quarter.

The best Super Bowl games of all time should be judged by the quality of team, not by who you like the most. Don't worry, no one will know if you vote for a Steelers game if you're a Ravens or Browns fan, and the same goes if you're a Bears fan who upvotes a game the Packers played in. Just be sure to vote on the greatest Super Bowl based on the game itself, not the teams that played in it. There are some excellent choices to select, so you really can't go wrong, unless you pick one of the early snoozefests.

This is the list of the greatest Super Bowl match-ups of all time. You really can't go wrong by choosing any of these games, but be sure to vote wisely.
