Throwback Thursday: One Yard Short at Super Bowl XXXIV
Are you ready for some football? With just under a week left until the first kickoff of the 2012 NFL season, this throwback Thursday is dedicated to one of the most memorable Super Bowl moments in history. As almost every memorable match ends in dramatic fashion, the last six seconds of Super Bowl XXXIV between the St. Louis Rams vs. Tennessee Titans had everyone on the edge of their seats.
Trailing 23-16 with six seconds left on the clock and twenty yards away from the end zone, Titans quarterback Steve McNair spotted Kevin Dyson running a potentially perfect route glaring in his right eye to force the game into overtime. With stellar protection from the offensive line, McNair threw a perfect spiral at Dyson running an in slant right inside the 10-yard line. Dyson cradled the ball, pushed his way towards the end line with the thought that he would be scoring the tying touchdown. However, despite the Rams’ tired defense as McNair put up an impressive and urgent drive, the Rams corners showed their resilience and tackled Dyson just one yard short of scoring a touchdown, denying the Titans of a Super Bowl title.
