Top Super Bowl Plays - Defense/Special Teams

Super Bowl XL in Detroit is rapidly approaching, and while everyone is looking ahead to this year's big game NFL PrimeTime and SportsNation are taking a look back, too. PrimeTime has come up with a list of the top 40 plays in Super Bowl history and the citizens of SportsNation will pick No. 1, to be announced live on-air from Detroit.

We've divided our list into offense and defense/special teams, and listed below are PrimeTime's top defensive/special teams plays. From Adam Vinatieri and his game-winning field goals to Garo Yepremian's botched attempt, from Don Beebe running down Leon Lett to Mike Jones stopping Kevin Dyson short of the goal line (above), we've got the best kicks, hits, interceptions and tackles covered.

Game-winners, game-savers and momentum-changers -- they're all on the ballot. Simply scroll through the list and vote for your top five defensive/special teams plays from the NFL's biggest games. Then tune in to NFL PrimeTime on Friday, Feb. 4 to see which play America chooses as the best in Super Bowl history.
