When the Patriots face the St. Louis Rams in London on Sunday, it’ll be a Super Bowl XXXVI reunion.
The two franchises met at the conclusion of the 2001 season in the Louisiana Superdome; giving NFL fans one of the great Super Bowls of all-time.
This game is famous in a few respects:
- It launched the Belichick-Brady era and New England’s first Super Bowl victory.
- It marked one of the few times in league history where an NFL TV analyst was wrong…and openly acknowledged it.
- The Rams went in to freefall following this game.
- Most importantly, it gave America another feel good story in the months that followed the horrific events of 9/11.
New England’s win over the Rams remains one of the great upsets in sports history.
Unless of course, you believe all of that Spygate nonsense.
