Super Bowl XLVIII is on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will be battling it out for the Vince Lombardi trophy. The Broncos are the top seed in the AFC. The Seahawks are the top seed in the NFC. This means that the two best teams in the NFL this season will be competing in the Super Bowl. It’s only the second time in 20 years that the top two teams played in the big game. With the top two teams going at it, the game should be a good one. It could be one of the most exciting or even the best Super Bowl in recent years. However not all games are good or exciting. Sometimes the game is just boring. It depends on who’s playing on whether the game is good or not. So what are the best Super Bowls games so far? Here’s the top 10 best Super Bowls, and maybe you can add this year’s Super Bowl to the list of best Super Bowls.
