SUPER BOWL XXXIV St. Louis Rams 23, Tennessee Titans 16 Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia January 30, 2000 Attendance: 72,625
St. Louis Rams (NFC)
Tennessee Titans (AFC)
Kevin Dyson fell one agonizing yard short of the end zone on the final play of the game.
A remarkable year by a quarterback coming out of nowhere was made a complete success -- by the longest yard.
Kurt Warner threw a 73-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Bruce with 1:54 left in the fourth quarter as the St. Louis Rams -- after blowing a 16-point lead -- capped their Cinderella season with a 23-16 win over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV at the Georgia Dome.
After the Rams went ahead, the Titans had one last chance to tie the game. Starting from their own 12-yard line with 1:48 left to play, Tennessee drove deep into Rams territory in the closing seconds -- helped along by a 15-yard face mask penalty and two offside calls on St. Louis. On third-and-five from the St. Louis 26, Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair miraculously avoided pressure and hit Kevin Dyson with a 16-yard pass that gave the Titans the ball at the 10-yard line with six seconds to play.
After Tennessee called its last time out, McNair threw across the middle again to Dyson. However, Dyson was tackled at the one-yard line by Rams linebacker Mike Jones and time ran out on Tennessee's comeback hopes.
