Top 10 unexpected heroes in Super Bowl history

9. Dexter Jackson, Defensive back, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Super Bowl XXXVII

Super Bowl XXXVII was a classic battle between the league’s best offense in the Oakland Raiders and the league’s best defense in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The old adage ‘defense wins championships’ proved to be true on this day as the Tampa Bay star-studded defense dominated the Raiders, but it was the overlooked Dexter Jackson who would have the biggest impact on the game with two first-half interceptions of Oakland quarterback Rich Gannon.

Jackson was later named MVP following the Bucs 48-21 Super Bowl victory
