St. Louis Rams

The Rams, who shocked the NFL in 1999 with an NFC-best 13-3 regular season record, were making their first playoff appearance in 10 years and only the second Super Bowl appearance in team history. They were led by undrafted and former Iowa Barnstormers and Amsterdam Admirals quarterback Kurt Warner, who was originally the backup to Trent Green, lost to an injury suffered in the preseason.

In his first NFL season in 1998, Warner had played only one game and threw just 11 passes. But in 1999, he had one of the most spectacular seasons ever at his position by recording a passer rating of 109.2, completing 65.1 percent of his passes for 4,353 yards, 41 touchdowns, and just 13 interceptions, earning him the NFL Most Valuable Player Award. Warner was not the only player on the team that was recording significant statistics. Running back Marshall Faulk, in his first year with the Rams after spending 5 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award. He scored 12 touchdowns, rushed for 1,381 yards, and recorded a team leading 87 receptions for 1,048 yards. In all, Faulk gained over 2,000 yards (2,429, the NFL record for yards from scrimmage in a single season) for the second year in a row, and became just the second running back ever to gain over 1,000 rushing and receiving yards in one season (Roger Craig was the first).

Warner also had several other weapons to throw to in addition to Faulk. Veteran receiver Isaac Bruce was the top Rams receiver with 77 receptions for 1,165 yards and 12 touchdowns. On the other side of the field, rookie wide receiver Torry Holt was also a major deep threat, recording 52 receptions, 788 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Even the team's third wide receiver, Az-Zahir Hakim, was a big contributor by catching 36 passes for 677 yards and 8 touchdowns, while also returning punts for 461 yards and another touchdown. The Rams' offensive line was led by Pro Bowlers Orlando Pace and Adam Timmerman.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans advanced to their first Super Bowl in team history. From 1960 to 1996, the team was known as the Houston Oilers, an original charter member of the American Football League (AFL). Houston, Texas businessman Bud Adams owned the Oilers since its inception and guided the team through the 1970 AFL-NFL Merger.

But by 1995, Adams was lured to move his team from Houston to a new stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Although this new stadium was not ready until the 1999 season, Adams decided to move his team to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee in 1997 after playing before sparse Houston crowds in 1996. However, the renamed Tennessee Oilers also played before sparse Memphis crowds, and thus spent the 1998 season playing at Nashville's Vanderbilt Stadium. After the new Adelphia Coliseum, now known as LP Field, was completed in 1999, the team's name was changed to Tennessee Titans.

The 1999 Titans were led by two stars: quarterback Steve McNair and running back Eddie George. McNair had missed 5 games due to injuries during the season, but he was still able to put up solid numbers, throwing for 2,179 yards and 12 touchdowns with only 8 interceptions. Despite his injury problems, McNair was also an outstanding scrambler and finished the season as the second leading rusher on the team with 337 yards and scoring 8 touchdowns. George also had an outstanding season, rushing for 1,304 yards, and catching 47 passes for 458 yards (his receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns were all career highs). In all, George scored a grand total of 13 rushing and receiving touchdowns, and was selected to play in the Pro Bowl for the 3rd consecutive year. Steve LaTreal McNair (born February 14, 1973 in Mount White, Washington), nicknamed Air McNair, is an American professional football player who spent 11 years as a Quarterback for the Tennessee Titans (formerly Houston Oilers), until he was traded in June 2006 to the Baltimore Ravens. ...

Another contributor on the Titans offense was fullback Lorenzo Neal, who frequently served as George's lead blocker and was widely considered one of the best blocking backs in the league. The team did not have any outstanding deep threats, but wide receivers Yancey Thigpen recorded 38 receptions for 648 yards, Kevin Dyson had 54 receptions for 658 yards, and tight end Frank Wycheck gained 69 receptions for 641 yards.

The Titans finished the regular season with a 13-3 record (including a home win over the Rams), but finished second behind the 14-2 Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Central.

Meanwhile, the Titans started out their postseason by narrowly defeating the Buffalo Bills, 22-16, on a famous, trick kickoff return play that became known in NFL Lore as the Music City Miracle. Tennessee jumped to a 12-0 first half lead with an Al Del Greco field goal, a safety by Kearse, and a McNair touchdown run. However, Buffalo came back to take the lead, 13-12 with Antowain Smith's 2 touchdown runs in the second half (the two-point conversion after Smith's second touchdown failed). In the fourth quarter, the Titans regained the lead after Del Greco kicked his second field goal. With under 15 seconds left in the game, Bills kicker Steve Christie made what seemed to be the game-winning 51-yard field goal to give his team the lead, 16-15. However, Neal received the ensuing kickoff and handed the ball off to Wycheck, who then lateraled the ball to Dyson on the other side of the field, who eventually ran 75 yards to the end zone for the game winning touchdown.

Game summary

The two teams' defenses seemed to dominate most of the first half. The Rams started the game out strong by taking the opening kickoff and marching to the Tennessee 17-yard line. But on third down, safety Blaine Bishop pressured quarterback Kurt Warner to throw an incomplete pass. Then the ensuing field goal attempt failed when punter/holder Mike Horan fumbled the snap. The Titans responded by moving the ball to the St. Louis 29-yard line, aided with running back Eddie George's 32-yard reception. But they also came up empty after kicker Al Del Greco missed a 47-yard field goal attempt. Blaine Bishop (born July 24, 1970) was a safety in the NFL. Category: ...

Albert Louis Del Greco (born March 2, 1962, in Providence, Rhode Island) is a former American football placekicker and a current sports-radio personality in Birmingham, Alabama. ...


For the rest of the half, the Titans were forced to punt on all of their possessions. In contrast, the Rams were able to reach inside the Tennessee 20-yard line on all 4 of their remaining drives before halftime, but on each one, the Titans defense forced St. Louis to settle for field goal attempts from kicker Jeff Wilkins, who was successful in making 3 of them, but missed one attempt from 34 yards. The Rams ended up leading at halftime, 9-0, but their scoring margin over the Titans seemed somewhat small considering they drove into scoring range on every one of their first half possessions and outgained Tennessee in total yards, 294-89. Jeff Allen Wilkins (born April 19, 1972 in Youngstown, Ohio) is an American football kicker who currently plays for the St. ...


Both teams' offenses started to get going in the second half. The Titans took the opening kickoff of the third period and drove 43 yards to the St. Louis 29-yard line. But Tennessee remained scoreless after defensive back Todd Lyght blocked Del Greco's 47 yard field goal attempt. With 7:20 remaining in the third quarter, the Rams drove inside the Titans 20-yard line for the sixth consecutive drive, this time scoring on a 9-yard touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to rookie receiver Torry Holt, giving St. Louis a 16-0 lead.

Tennessee wide receiver Derrick Mason returned the ensuing kickoff 35 yards to the 34-yard line. From there, 5 runs by George and two completions from quarterback Steve McNair to tight end Frank Wycheck advanced the ball to the St. Louis 29-yard line. Then McNair scrambled 23 yards to the 2-yard line, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by George 2 plays later. The touchdown cut the Titans' deficit to 16-6 after McNair's pass to Wycheck on the two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete.

The Titans first score sparked them to rally. After forcing the Rams to punt on their ensuing possession, a pair of 21-yard completions from McNair to wide receivers Jackie Harris and Isaac Byrd aided a 13-play, 79-yard drive that was capped by George's 2-yard touchdown run to cut the score, 16-13. The Tennessee defense then forced the Rams to a three-and-out, and Horan's 30-yard punt gave them the ball back at their 47-yard line. The Titans offense then drove only 28 yards on their ensuing possession, but it was close enough for Del Greco to attempt a 43-yard field goal. This time, Del Greco's kick was good, tying the score 16-16 with just 2:12 left in the game. Three and out is an American Football term used to describe a game situation where the team with the ball is unable to get a first down on their possesion and is forced to punt after they run 3 plays. ...


However on the Rams' first play of their ensuing drive, Warner threw a long pass that was caught by Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce at the Titans' 38-yard line, who then ran it all the way into the end zone for a 73-yard touchdown completion to give St. Louis a 23-16 lead.

The Titans took over the ball at their own 10-yard line with 1:54 left in the game after committing a holding penalty on the ensuing kickoff. McNair started out the drive with a pair of completions to Mason and Wycheck for gains of 9 and 7 yards to reach the 28-yard line. Then after throwing an incompletion, defensive back Dre' Bly's 15-yard facemask penalty while tackling McNair on a 12-yard scramble gave the Titans a first down at the St. Louis 45-yard line. On the next play, St. Louis was penalized 5 yards for being offsides, moving the ball to the 40-yard line with 59 seconds left. McNair then ran for 2 yards, followed by a 7-yard completion to wide receiver Kevin Dyson. Three plays later, with the Titans facing 3rd down and 5 to go, McNair was hit by two Rams' defenders, but he escaped and completed a 16-yard pass to Dyson to gain a first down at the Rams 10-yard line. Tennessee then used up their final timeout with just 6 seconds left in the game, giving them a chance for one last play. McNair threw a short pass to Kevin Dyson down the middle, which looked certain to tie up the game, until Rams linebacker Mike Jones tackled Dyson at the one-yard line as time expired. Dyson tried to stretch his arm and the football across the goal line, but he had already gone down, so it was too late. This final play has gone down in NFL history as simply "The Tackle".

Trivia

  • This was the 4th Super Bowl to be held a week after the conference championship games. The previous Super Bowl (XXVIII) also had only one week between games, and like this game, was also played on January 30 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
  • The Titans' 16-point deficit was the largest deficit to be erased in a Super Bowl and the first greater than 10 points, but they only tied the game and never gained the lead.
  • The Titans were the first team since the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI to go scoreless in the 1st half, and the 10th time overall that a team had done so. No team has won the game after going scoreless in the first half.
  • The Rams became the first team in Super Bowl history to take 5 straight possessions into the red zone but come away with zero touchdowns. They finally scored their first red zone touchdown on their first possession of the second half with Torry Holt's 9-yard reception.
  • Kurt Warner's 73-yard game-winning touchdown pass to Isaac Bruce broke a 16-16 tie in the fourth quarter and gave the Rams a seven-point victory to win the NFL title. Likewise, in the 1951 NFL Championship Game, quarterback Norm Van Brocklin's 73-yard game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Tom Fears broke a 17-17 tie in the fourth quarter and gave the Rams a seven-point victory to win the NFL title.
  • Bruce's game-winning touchdown reception was also the Rams' only pass completion in the final period. Warner's last two completions of the game were his two touchdown passes, as he didn't complete any more in the third quarter after the 9-yard score to Holt.
  • With the victory, the Rams had one NFL Championship while playing in each of the three cities that they've called home. The Cleveland Rams won in 1945, the Los Angeles Rams in 1951, and the St. Louis Rams in 1999.
  • This was the second Super Bowl, after Super Bowl XXV, in which neither team committed a turnover. That game was also televised on ABC.
  • With this game the NFC went to 5-0 in Super Games broadcast on ABC, following San Francisco in XIX, Washington in XXII, NY Giants in XXV, and San Francisco in XXIX.
