Super Bowl XXI was an American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos and the National Football Conference (NFC) champion New York Giants….to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 1986 season. The Giants defeated the Broncos by the score of 39–20….winning their first ever Super Bowl….and their first NFL title since 1956. The game was played on January 25, 1987 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
This was the Broncos’ second Super Bowl appearance….led largely through the play of quarterback John Elway…plus a defense that led the AFC in fewest yards allowed….as Denver posted an 11–5 regular season record…with two narrow playoff victories to get to Super Bowl XXI. The Giants were led by quarterback Phil Simms….running back Joe Morris….and their “Big Blue Wrecking Crew” defense ….advancing to their first Super Bowl….after posting a 14–2 regular season record….and only allowing a combined total of 3 points in their two postseason wins. Bone Daddy was at the game….and came home with these collectibles.
