Tom Brown becomes the first major leaguer to play in the Super Bowl. The Green Bay defensive back, an outfielder and first baseman for the Senators in 1963, is best remembered for his last-minute interception of Cowboy quarterback Don Meredith’s Hail Mary pass in the NFL Championship game, making Green Bay a participant in the first-ever Super Bowl.

15 years ago today, in the AFC wild-card playoff between the Titans and Bills, Kevin Dyson ran 75 yards for the winning touchdown with three seconds left after teammate Frank Wycheck fielded the kickoff for Tennessee and threw a lateral all the way across the field to Dyson. The play is remembered as “The Music City Miracle.” (Bob Rosato/SI)
