2019 Atlanta Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XXXVII

With Week 14 officially underway, the Super Bowl 53 playoff picture continues to clarify itself. On this Road to the 2019 Super Bowl in Atlanta, we’re heading back to Super Bowl XXXVII between current Raiders (and former Buccaneers) head coach Jon Gruden’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers are taking on the, funny enough, Oakland Raiders.

The referee at the time was Bill Carollo, a Super Bowl played in front of a total of 67,603 fans. The Dixie Chicks played the National Anthem and Shania Twain was the star of the halftime show. The final score of Super Bowl XXXVII was 48-21, with the Buccaneers walking away victorious.

MVP of the game was Dexter Jackson, safety for Tampa Bay. Jackson made history as being one of the only players in the secondary to be named Super Bowl MVP. Some remember this particular Super Bowl being nicknamed the “Pirate Bowl,” and this was due to both mascots looking like a pirate.

John Madden, the legendary former head coach of the Oakland Raiders, was yet again one of the announcers for the Super Bowl this time around. Al Michaels and Melissa Stark both joined him, along with Lynn Swann. There were a total of 88.6 million viewers watching the Super Bowl this time around, and the cost of a 30 second commercial was around $2.1 million. The game aired on the ABC network and the Nielsen rating was 40.7.
