NFL Championship Game Clinching Score Review
Though massive in magnitude, in terms of what's on the line plus how and when they were scored, even the most hardcore football fan would be hard-pressed to recite all of the Super Bowl winning scores. In fact, we doubt many would even come up with the last five - let alone Jim Taylor's 14 yard Q2 gallop that clinched the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl 1 win. Part of the SB betting cycle, let's look at some history behind game winners and props associated the Super Bowl LII match.
Never the first points of any title fight, though they have been punched in during the first frame, Super Bowl winning scores have been posted at a wide variety of moments during each individual contest. By quarter, SB securing points have been registered in the first (4) second (16) third (9) and fourth (21) frames – plus once in the first overtime. The SB winning points posted late in contests were punched in with less than three minutes left on the clock, or in extra time, twelve times.

Kickers and Offense Lead Game Winning Points Parade
Produced exclusively by quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and place kickers, Super Bowl winning points have been scored by three methods. Ranging from 2 to 80 yards, pass plays have been Super Bowl deciding points 19 times. With twelve of them being 6 yards or less, the longest went 75 yards, run plays have decided 18 contests. NFL Rodney Dangerfield's have kicked 14 field goals, which were good from 21 to 48 yards, to bring home NFL Championships.
Often muddled somewhere in the match, who knew a 1st Q Jim Plunket to Kenny King 80-yard TD strike would be the winning score when the Oakland Raiders defeated Philadelphia 27-10 during the Eagles first title game appearance (1981) during SB 15? Another chameleon, no one knew a QB Joe Montana 6-yard TD run, that made the score 21-10 halfway into the second frame, would be the deciding play of the 49ers 38-16 win over the Dolphins during Super Bowl 19 in 1985.

Many players have posted game winners, without realizing their full impact, other scores propel the Champs into celebration mode. The Patriots know that feeling as PK Adam Vinatieri kicked game ending field goals in two New England wins (SB 36 & 38). Vinatieri, with more Super Bowl winners (4) than any player, started the Belichick/Brady legacy in 2002 when his clutch 48-yard kick earned New England a 20-17 win over the St. Louis Rams. Will last second heroics decide Super Bowl 52?
