    Biggest Super Bowl Upset

    Since Super Bowl 42 was a great game when the New York Giants upset and blew the chance of a perfect record for the New England Patriots. Many consider this the biggest Super Bowl upset. What Super Bowl do you think is this biggest upset.

    The Jets over the Colts. Nothing else comes close. This certainly did not, given that it was a rematch of two teams that played to a three-point game just a few weeks earlier.

    Re: Biggest Super Bowl Upset

    I actually feel that this year's Superbowl was the biggest defeat. You had the "Unstoppable" Patriots coming in undefeated against wildcard team Giants. The Patriots were going to do something that hasn't been done since the '72 Dolphins. Have a total perfect season. They started boasting about a Dynasty and New York just came in and said "Nope, I don't think so!!!" Dang I wish I would have put money down on this game!!!!!!

    Re: Biggest Super Bowl Upset

    While I really don't think that people realized just how good the old American Football League was, folks may not recall that the Colts were, as I recall, 18-point favorites.

    And this was the great old, established National Football League. And the NFL had won the previous two games by an average 22 points.

    Having said that, if Johnny Unitas had started the game for Baltimore, or if Earl Morrall had spotted a wide-open Jimmy Orr for an easy touchdown, the outcome might have been a lot different.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Greatest Comeback in SB history ... sure. But biggest upset?

    Uhm, the 49ers were favored in that game.

    Biggest upset would be a team that wasn't supposed to win (Jets, Giants, Broncos) beating a team that was supposed to win.

    I agree with those who said Colts/Jets.

    It wasn't just the Colts vs. Jets. It was the entire AFL/NFL history and the thought that the NFL was leaps and bounds above the AFL.

    It changed the perception of football and it never looked back.
