Top 10 unexpected heroes in Super Bowl history

[tps_title]7. Desmond Howard, Kick-returner, Green Bay Packers: Super Bowl XXXI[/tps_title]

The former Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Michigan was used primarily as a kick returner for the Green Bay Packers during the 1996 season.

In Super Bowl XXXI the Packers and Patriots were in a dogfight as New England closed in on the lead after a third quarter touchdown. What would happen next would change the course of the game as Howard returned the ensuing kickoff 99 yards for the touchdown and was named MVP.

Green Bay won their first Super Bowl since going back-to-back in Super Bowl I and II.
