Date: 1/25/1998
Super Bowl: XXXII
Matchup: Broncos vs. Packers
Location: San Diego

John Elway's career had been marked by disappointment, as the Broncos' star had reached and been soundly beaten in three different Super Bowls. By the time he got to a fourth one, Elway was 37 years old and nearing the end of his decorated career. He proved just how badly he wanted to win on this mad scramble, where he sold out his body and got helicoptered for his trouble. What mattered, though, was that he also got the first down. Denver would go on to win the game, and for good measure they'd win another one the next season as well.
