I've been looking all over and can't find it anywhere. I know our Bucs were dogs as well as the Broncos in SB32 but was just wondering how many have pulled off the upset.

New England was a HUGE underdog against St. Louis! Still the biggest show-up of all in the Super Bowl. Whoever was the TV announcer rattled off the starting lineup for the Rams, then said "being introduced as a team, The New England Patriots." That had to get into the Rams' heads and make them furious, to be shown up like that on worldwide TV. That's the reason individual players aren't announced anymore by at the stadium.

I prefer to have individual players announced, it's more fun that way.   I don't think the Patriots not announcing their no-names mattered in that superbowl.  Actually, I guess I wouldn't announce my players either if I didnt have any stars on the team.    The Rams had a ton of stars that year, and the Pats a bunch of no-names.  They had a good gameplan and got all the breaks.   They would have lost that game 9 out of 10 times.   The Rams were the better team.

Don't forget the Jets.

Believe thay were, point wise, the largest underdogs.

Also, only 10 games were won by 7 points or less.
