Ranking the Patriots’ Super Bowl wins by excitement level
The New England Patriots have won the most Super Bowl championships in NFL history; which of their six victories was the most exciting though?
Of all 32 teams in the National Football League, only the AFC rival Pittsburgh Steelers can claim to be on the same championship level as the New England Patriots. Fresh off grinding out a victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, the Patriots now share the Steelers’ exalted pedestal as being the only two professional football franchises with six Lombardi Trophies to their names.
Yet all wins are not created equal.
As many television viewers of Super Bowl 53 can attest, the Patriots and Rams didn’t exactly deliver what one would call “must-see TV” in this year’s championship game. There were almost as many total punts (14) as there were total points (16), and the Super Bowl went down as the lowest-scoring in NFL history.
Of course, New England football fans probably don’t mind that the game was decried as “boring” by some, because at the end of the day, their team still won a championship.
When considering all six of the Patriots’ Super Bowl victories, which games stand out above the rest as being the most exciting? And conversely, which wins were games that “only a mother (or a diehard Pats fan) could love?”
