11. Roger Staubach, Cowboys, Super Bowl XIII (1979)
Stats: 17-30, 228 yards, 3 TD, 1 interception in 35-31 loss to Steelers.
Staubach nearly brought the Cowboys back from a big hole, throwing two fourth-quarter TD passes. His effort was good enough to earn him honors as the top non-winning QB performance.
12. Bart Starr, Packers, Super Bowl I (1967)
Stats: 16-23, 250 yards, 2 TD, 1 interception in 35-10 win over Chiefs.
Starr's passing yards were impressive coming in an era when big totals weren't the norm. Starr made wide receiver Max McGee look like a Hall of Famer (7 receptions, 138 yards). McGee, who replaced an injured Boyd Dowler early in the game, broke the team curfew the night before and did not expect to play.
13. Jim Plunkett, Raiders, Super Bowl XV (1981)
Stats: 13-21, 261 yards, 3 TD, 0 interceptions in 27-10 win over Eagles.
Plunkett got the Raiders started on the right foot with two first-quarter touchdown passes, including an 80-yarder to Kenny King. Plunkett started the season backing up Dan Pastorini.
14. Brett Favre, Packers, Super Bowl XXXI (1997)
Stats: 14-27, 246 yards, 3 TD (1 rush), 0 interceptions in 35-21 win over Patriots.
Favre threw a 64-yard TD pass to Andre Rison on the second play from scrimmage and a then-record 81-yard scoring pass to Antonio Freeman. Add a rushing touchdown, and it's surprising that he was not named MVP (Desmond Howard won).
15. Tom Brady, Patriots, Super Bowl XXXIX (2005)
Stats: 23-33, 236 yards, 2 TD, 0 interceptions in 24-21 win over Eagles.
Brady had another near-flawless performance in the Patriots' most recent Super Bowl crown, but it was wide receiver Deion Branch (11 catches, 133 yards) who was named MVP.
16. Jake Delhomme, Panthers, Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004)
Stats: 16-33, 323 yards, 3 TD, 0 interceptions in 32-29 loss to Patriots.
Delhomme's numbers were excellent, but unfortunately for him, Tom Brady was on the other side of the field. Delhomme connected on a Super Bowl-record 85-yard TD pass with Muhsin Muhammad, but an early fumble by the QB led to a Patriots touchdown.
17. John Elway, Broncos, Super Bowl XXXIII (1999)
Stats: 18-29, 336 yards, 2 TD (1 rush), 1 interception in 34-19 win over Falcons.
Elway's last NFL game proved to be one of his best. In addition to his 80-yard TD pass to Rod Smith, Elway rushed for a score as Denver cruised.
18. Kurt Warner, Rams, Super Bowl XXXVI (2002)
Stats: 28-44, 365 yards, 2 TD (1 rush), 2 interceptions in 20-17 loss to Patriots.
Warner nearly led his heavily favored Rams to a win over the upstart Patriots with a TD pass and rushing TD in the fourth quarter. But Ty Law's 47-yard interception return in the second quarter hurt the Rams and Warner.
19. Terry Bradshaw, Steelers, Super Bowl XIV (1980)
Stats: 14-21, 309 yards, 2 TD, 3 interceptions in 31-19 win over Rams.
In his fourth and final Super Bowl championship, Bradshaw had touchdown passes of 47 yards to Lynn Swann and 73 yards to John Stallworth. Bradshaw was named game MVP for the second straight year.
20. Mark Rypien, Redskins, Super Bowl XXVI (1992)
Stats: 18-33, 292 yards, 2 TD, 1 interception in 37-24 win over Bills.
Rypien's solid performance resulted in both Gary Clark and Art Monk collecting more than 100 receiving yards for the Redskins. Rypien was named MVP.
21. Jim McMahon, Bears, Super Bowl XX (1986)
Stats: 12-20, 256 yards, 2 TD (both rushing), 0 interceptions in 46-10 win over Patriots.
McMahon became the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to rush for two touchdowns. He left the game in the fourth quarter with a wrist injury.
22. Joe Namath, Jets, Super Bowl III (1969)
Stats: 17-28, 206 yards, 0 TD, 0 interceptions in 16-7 win over Colts.
His numbers alone wouldn't be enough to put Namath this high. But we're giving him major props for guaranteeing the win over the heavily favored Colts -- the AFL's first win over the NFL.
23. Brett Favre, Packers, Super Bowl XXXII (1998)
Stats: 25-42, 256 yards, 3 TD, 1 interception in 31-24 loss to Broncos.
Favre led the Packers on a 76-yard opening touchdown drive, but Green Bay fell short in its attempt for back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
24. Joe Montana, 49ers, Super Bowl XVI (1982)
Stats: 14-22, 157 yards, 2 TD (1 rush), 0 interceptions in 26-21 win over Bengals.
Yes, this is the fourth time that Montana has appeared on this list -- it certainly says a lot that he has one-sixth of the best 24 performances by a Super Bowl quarterback. Montana's steady hand in this game -- his first Super Bowl appearance -- earned him MVP.
25. Len Dawson, Chiefs, Super Bowl IV (1970)
Stats: 12-17, 142 yards, 1 TD, 1 interception in 23-7 win over Vikings.
While the numbers look rather pedestrian, Dawson's game management was impeccable; the Chiefs led 16-0 at the half. It was the AFL's second straight upset of the NFL.
26. Tom Brady, Patriots, Super Bowl XXXVI (2002)
Stats: 16-27, 145 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions in 20-17 win over Rams.
New England's defense stood out, but Brady orchestrated the drive at the end of the game to set up Adam Vinatieri's game-winning field goal as time expired for the upset win. Brady completed 5 of 6 passes on the winning 53-yard drive.
27. Troy Aikman, Cowboys, Super Bowl XXX (1996)
Stats: 15-23, 209 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions in win over Steelers.
Aikman was efficient and easily outperformed his counterpart, Neil O'Donnell (see No. 71). Most impressively, Aikman was able to lead the Cowboys to victory despite a rushing attack that was held to just 56 yards.
28. Ken Anderson, Bengals, Super Bowl XVI (1982)
Stats: 25-34, 300 yards, 3 TD (1 rush), 2 interceptions in 26-21 loss to 49ers.
Anderson put up better numbers than Joe Montana in this game but would probably like those two interceptions back; his team lost by only five points.
29. Roger Staubach, Cowboys, Super Bowl VI (1972)
Stats: 12-19, 119 yards, 2 TD, 1 interception in 24-3 win over Dolphins.
Staubach didn't need to throw much as the Cowboys rolled to the win with 252 rushing yards.
30. Jeff Hostetler, Giants, Super Bowl XXV (1991)
Stats: 20-32, 222 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions in 20-19 win over Bills.
Hostetler was a made Scott Norwood FG away from dropping on this list, but his efficient performance cannot be overlooked. He managed a game that saw the Giants rack up 40 minutes, 33 seconds in time of possession.
31. Ken Stabler, Raiders, Super Bowl XI (1977)
Stats: 12-19, 180 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions in 32-14 win over Vikings.
Stabler had a solid performance as the Raiders put up a then-record 429 yards of total offense. Fred Biletnikoff, who had only four receptions for 79 yards, was named MVP.
32. John Elway, Broncos, Super Bowl XXI (1987)
Stats: 22-37, 304 yards, 2 TD (1 rush), 1 interception in 39-20 loss to Giants.
Behind Elway's 187 passing yards in the first half, the Broncos actually led 10-9 at the break. In the second half, however, Elway was outdueled by a white-hot Phil Simms, who completed 22 of 25 passes overall.
33. Bart Starr, Packers, Super Bowl II (1968)
Stats: 13-24, 202 yards, 1 TD, 1 interception in 33-14 win over Raiders.
Starr, coming off one of the worst regular seasons of his career, pulled it together to earn Super Bowl MVP honors for the second straight year.
34. Peyton Manning, Colts, Super Bowl XLI (2007)
Stats: 25-38, 247 yards, 1 TD, 1 interception in 29-17 win over Bears.
On a rainy Miami night, Manning completed a 53-yard TD pass to Reggie Wayne in the first quarter and earned MVP honors. His running back duo of Joseph Addai (143 total yards) and Dominic Rhodes (113 rush yards) arguably had better games.
35. Steve McNair, Titans, Super Bowl XXXIV (2000)
Stats: 22-36, 214 yards, 0 TD, 0 interceptions in 23-16 loss to Rams.
McNair and the Titans came up just short -- literally -- of winning. After catching a McNair pass, Kevin Dyson was tackled by Mike Jones at the 1-yard line as time expired. McNair rushed for 64 yards, the most by a QB in Super Bowl history.
36. Roger Staubach, Cowboys, Super Bowl XII (1978)
Stats: 17-25, 183 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions in 27-10 win over Broncos.
Staubach's solid performance was aided by the Cowboys' defense, which forced eight Broncos turnovers. His 45-yard touchdown to Butch Johnson in the third quarter put the game away.
37. Terry Bradshaw, Steelers, Super Bowl X (1976)
Stats: 9-19, 209 yards, 2 TD, 0 interceptions in 21-17 win over Cowboys
Four of Bradshaw's completions went to game MVP Lynn Swann for 161 yards, including a 64-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter that clinched Pittsburgh's second straight championship.
38. Brad Johnson, Buccaneers, Super Bowl XXXVII (2003)
Stats: 18-34, 215 yards, 2 TD, 1 interception in 48-21 win over Raiders.
It's hard to believe that a quarterback whose team scored 48 points is this low, but it was the Bucs' defense that drove up the score with three interceptions returned for touchdowns.
39. Donovan McNabb, Eagles, Super Bowl XXXIX (2005)
Stats: 30-51, 357 yards, 3 TD, 3 interceptions in 24-21 loss to Patriots.
While critics will point out McNabb's three interceptions -- including one on the Eagles' final drive -- it's hard to fault the Eagles' QB, especially with Philadelphia's ground game (45 yards) shut down.
40. Vince Ferragamo, Rams, Super Bowl XIV (1980)
Stats: 15-25, 212 yards, 0 TD, 1 interception in 31-19 loss to Steelers.
In a game that was back and forth, Ferragamo more than held his own, making only one big mistake. The Rams' only touchdown pass was by Lawrence McCutcheon on a halfback option play.
