Countdown to 2020 Miami: Super Bowl XLI

With the 2019-20 NFL Playoffs on the horizon, we’re getting closer and closer in our countdown to Super Bowl 54, with Super Bowl XLI between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears.

Peyton Gets His 1st Ring

On February 4, 2007, the Colts and Bears kicked off a historic Super Bowl XLI from Dolphin Stadium in Miami, Florida. Super Bowl XLI would become the first Super Bowl in which not only was there an African American head coach leading one of the two teams, but both teams, and one would become the first African American head coach to win the Super Bowl. The Indianapolis Colts and head coach Tony Dungy would take home the title, by a final score of 29-17.

Many remember Super Bowl XLI as the Super Bowl where Colts quarterback Peyton Manning finally got the “monkey off his back.” After years of early playoff exits and disappointing finishes, Manning and the Colts had finally captured their first Lombardi trophy. Manning would go on to be named Super Bowl XLI MVP, completing 25 of his 38 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown.

In front of 74,512 football fans at Dolphin Stadium, the late Prince would perform the Super Bowl halftime show, in a performance that would become iconic, and the national anthem was sung by Billy Joel. A total of 93.2 million fans tuned in to catch Super Bowl XLI, broadcast by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on CBS. And the cost of a 30-second Super Bowl commercial spot would cost around $2.6 million.

Countdown to 2020 Miami: Super Bowl XX

With Week 3 on the Road to Super Bowl 54 about to kick off, two of the most iconic franchises in the league are set to square off in Super Bowl XX, once again hosted in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Chicago Bears & The Super Bowl Shuffle

Both making Super Bowl appearances for the first time in franchise history, the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots were set to face off in front of nearly 74,000 fans at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, a popular Super Bowl host. And in 1986, the ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’ squad Chicago Bears would dominate the Patriots, winning by a score of 46-10.

The Bear’s dominance wasn’t a surprise to many, as in 1985, the Bears flaunted one of the most revered defenses of all-time, boasting a 15-win season heading into the playoffs. Richard Dent, defensive end for the Chicago Bears, walked away as a rare defensive Super Bowl MVP, recording 1.5 sacks, a blocked pass and two fumbles recovered.

The cost of a 30-second TV commercial rose once again in 1982, up to $324,000, the most expensive to date. Pat Summerall and John Madden handled broadcasting duties for Super Bowl XVI, which brought in a record 85.24 million viewers worldwide.

Nearly 93 million viewers tuned in to catch Super Bowl XX on TV, a record thus far. Every MVP of past Super Bowls was honored at halftime of the game, which also included a performance from Up With People to the theme “Beat of the Future.” The cost of a 30-second commercial spot rose to around $550,000 in 1986, a big jump from the previous year’s.

All roads to Atlanta and Super Bowl 53 run through the New Orleans Saints in the NFC, with the Los Angeles Rams the other team sporting a Wild Card weekend bye.

The headlining matchups in the NFC this weekend feature the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Seattle Seahawks, and the NFC North champion Chicago Bears hosting the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

Up until the waning minutes of the 2018 regular season, the AFC’s playoff picture was still very much in flux. With the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots winning to secure their first-round byes, the Los Angeles Chargers were the only remaining team locked into their playoff spot ahead of a crucial Sunday night matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans.

Winners of 9 of their last 10 games (and the remaining wild card spot), the red hot Indianapolis Colts’ victory Sunday night cemented the matchups, heading back to Houston to take on the division-rival Texans in a rubber match, with the Baltimore Ravens hosting the Los Angeles Chargers.

 

Saturday: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans, 4:35 p.m. ET (ESPN/ABC) | Sunday: Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens, 1:05 p.m. ET (CBS)
