BEST SINGLE-GAME SUPER BOWL PERFORMANCE: Ravens, XXXV

The 34-7 trouncing of the Giants in 2001 was impressive enough, but when you consider that New York qualified for this embarrassment by totally outclassing the Vikings 41-0 in the NFC Championship Game, it's doubly good. By limiting the Giants to 152 yards, holding them without a first down on 11 of 17 possessions and forcing five turnovers, Baltimore nudges the Giants' Super Bowl upset of the Pats out of the top spot here.

 

BEST PERFORMANCE: Ray Lewis, Super Bowl XXXV, Atlanta

A year earlier, in 2000, Lewis was on trial for his life, charged in connection with the deaths of two men in an Atlanta fight. After being exonerated on the major changes but found guilty of obstruction of justice, Lewis was fined $250,000 by the NFL ... and then Lewis went out and had a season like few others in his career. He won the AP Defensive Player of the Year award, and was MVP of the Super Bowl, flying around the field, breaking up four passes and pressuring the Giants into mistakes in the running and passing game.

Boy, Crav, I will cherish that season forever. That Ray-led D was the best I have ever seen.

Such a relentless, tireless, disciplined, energized, passionate unit with an overachieving spirit and constant sense of urgency. I dont know we will ever see that kind of performance again.

 

Man, if we could have only bottled up that formula for later consumption (like right now).
