6. Swann's Miraculous Catch

Date: 1/18/1976
Super Bowl: X
Matchup: Steelers vs. Cowboys
Location: Miami

We're just going to come right out and say it: there has not been a more acrobatic, athletic catch made in the history of the Super Bowl. Swann hopped way up into the air to steal an interception from the defensive back, only in doing so bobbled it a little. For most players that would have been a fine enough play, but Swann wasn't done. Instead, he never took his eye off the ball as he fell to the ground, plucking the it out of the air and hanging on to it as he landed. He would go on to win game MVP honors with 161 receiving yards and a touchdown, becoming the first wide out to win the award.
