The Buffalo Bills were the team of the 90’s. With players like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed, and Bruce Smith, who could lose, right? Wrong.

In the 80’s and 90’s the san francisco 49ers won a total of five super bowls under Joe montana and steve young. Over the span of two decades this team dominated its competition from montana to young, there seemed to be a steady rate of success through the years. This success caught the attention of a young boy by the name of Tom Brady who idolized the legendary Joe Montana and inspired him to become the quarterback he is today. But just as montana was replaced by a younger Steve Young we are faced with the same predicament in the aging Brady and the younger, fresher Garoppolo.
For the first time since 1990, the New York Giants are the reigning Super Bowl champions.
