Tomorrow is Super bowl XLVII. After 16 weeks of regular season action, a bounty scandal, a murder-suicide involving a player, the final two teams standing are the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. For the Harbaugh family, this should be one for the ages.
For the first time in history, two brothers will oppose each other in a Super Bowl.
Both teams came so close to making it to the Super Bowl last year.
In honor of the Super Bowl tradition, it’s best to remember past Super Bowls and NFL players that paved the way for today’s game.
Although the Bengals lost Superbowls XVI and XXIII to Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers, both games were competitive and close.
Although the Bengals won’t be in tomorrow’s Super Bowl, the 49ers have returned with their five Super Bowl championships. A win would give them six. Also, this is the Ravens second Super Bowl appearance.
After reviewing several former Bengals player performances, I have selected five memorable Bengals players that have appeared in at least one Super Bowl.
