2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XXXVI

December 12th, 2017 by Bullseye Event Group

With just three weeks left in the 2017 NFL season, teams are beginning to narrow their focus and set their sights on Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis. Up next; Super Bowl XXXVI between the New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams.

February 3, 2002

The Patriots would capture their first Super Bowl title of the Brady-Belichick era in Super Bowl XXXVI, thus birthing a dominance in the NFL that still runs through today. New England defeated St. Louis in Super Bowl XXXVI 20-17, in front of nearly 73,000 fans at the Louisiana Super Dome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This was St. Louis’ third-time appearing in the Super Bowl, but the Patriots had their number. Quarterback Tom Brady captured the Super Bowl XXXVI MVP honors, his first Super Bowl MVP award. Brady completed 16 of his 27 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown, including leading a drive that would set up future hall-of-fame kicker Adam Vinatieri’s game-winning field goal.

The game was played on the Fox network and the cost of a 30 second commercial was around $1.9 million. There were around 86.8 million viewers tuning into the game on February 3, 2002. Pat Summerall and John Madden were both the announcers for the game this time around, along with Pam Oliver and Ron Pitts.
