Both fans and players know that Super Bowls are hysterically full of bad chokes or NFL betting odds. Below are some of  the worst chokes in Super Bowl history:

Super Bowl XLII- New England Patriots

In 2007, the New England Patriots were on their way to becoming the first team to score a 19 to 0 season, against all NFL betting predictions.The effort was choked by the offensive Patriots when they lost to the New York Giants by a 14-17 score.

Super Bowl XXV – Scott Norwood

Scott Norwood’s missed field goal for 47 yards sailed a wide right during the winning chance of Super Bowl. The Buffalo Bills went on to lose 4 consecutive Super Bowls which was a major setback in the NFL betting games.

 

 

Super Bowl XXXVII – Rich Gannon

Rich Gannon was the regular season of MVP. When he was part of the Oakland Raiders. In the Super Bowl he lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 21-48. Gannon was responsible for throwing an astonishing 5  interceptions which was an astonishment. Out of them, 3were returned as touchdowns.

Super Bowl XLIV – Peyton Manning

The score was 17-24 in the last quarter of the game when Player Named Peyton Manning threw an unlikely interception to another player Tracy Porter when he was quite deep in the opponent’s territory. The same throw was returned for a 74- yards touchdown.

Super Bowl XXXVIII – John Kasay

Loss by the Carolina Panthers to the New England Patriots led to a huge fall in the professional career of John Kasay. He had connected on a field goal of 50 yards and had only less than two minutes left in the game. This is when Kasay  directed the kickoff out of bounds.  That is when the offense run by Tom Brady went to work. He was orchestrated a brilliant comeback, throwing a winning touchdown to  Adam Vinatieri.
