4. Emmitt Smith (Super Bowl XXVIII)
Emmitt Smith currently sits on top of the NFL’s all-time career rushing yards list as he was a model of consistency running the football. There were only four out of his 15 total seasons played in the NFL where he failed to produce 1,000+ yards in a season. Smith ran through three total Super Bowls in his career and came out with three rings to show for it. He rushed for 289 yards and tallied five touchdowns in his three Super Bowl outings with the Dallas Cowboys.
3. Ray Lewis (Super Bowl XXXV)
During the 2000 NFL season, the defensive unit of the Baltimore Ravens set two NFL records that still hold today. They allowed 165 total points and didn’t give opposing team’s running backs much to work with as they only allowed only 970 total rushing yards during the entire season. Ray Lewis would lead his Baltimore Ravens into Tampa, Florida to square off against the New York Giants. The Ravens defense was on full display as they held the Giants to only 152 yards of total offense, which is the 3rd lowest total in Super Bowl history. The Ravens would go on and win their 1st Super Bowl in team history. Lewis finished the game with three solo tackles, assisted on two others and broke up four pass attempts.
Lewis would play in one more Super Bowl, which just so happened to be his farewell season in the NFL when the Ravens met up with the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Baltimore would reign supreme, sending Lewis off into the sunset with two Super Bowl rings. He will always be considered one of the greatest linebackers ever to play the game.
