Minneapolis Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XXXV

With just three weeks left in the NFL season, we’re getting closer and closer to Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis in 2018. A look back at the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens squaring off in Super Bowl XXXV.

January 28, 2001

In front of over 72,000 fans at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium, the Baltimore Ravens would capture their first Super Bowl victory largely due in part to their dominating defense, defeating the New York Giants 34-7.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis would become just the second linebacker in NFL history to take home Super Bowl MVP honors, recording five total tackles and four deflected passes. The New York Giants would go down in the record books for a different reason, becoming the first team to go an entire Super Bowl without recording an offensive touchdown.

Super Bowl XXXV was broadcasted to more than 84 million viewers world wide on CBS, with broadcasting duties handled by Phil Simms and Greg Gumbel. The National Anthem for the Super Bowl was sung by the Backstreet Boys, and halftime was provided by popular rock band Aerosmith. The cost of a 30-second commercial in 2001 took a massive hike, jumping to more than $2.1 million for Super Bowl XXXV.
