On Sunday, pretty much everyone in Baltimore will be rooting for the Ravens. Likewise in San Francisco with the 49ers. But the rest of the nation's football fans? They will just be rooting for another entertaining game. Each of the last five Super Bowls went down to the wire, and a couple of them could be considered among the greatest Super Bowls of all time. In anticipation of another good one Sunday in New Orleans, Matt Vensel has compiled his list of the seven most entertaining Super Bowls in NFL history.
Defensive coordinator Dean Pees stuck with an aggressive approach, blitzing defenders and using unusual alignments. He lined up safeties James Ihedigbo and Omar Brown as edge pass rushers lined up outside the tackles and shifted outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw to nose guard.

Every morning, Monday through Friday, blogger Matt Vensel will hook you up with reading material -- mostly on the Ravens but with some other Baltimore sports stuff, too -- to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday.
Every week, we hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, we chatted with Rich Campbell, who covers the Washington Redskins for The Washington Times.
