Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Top Super Bowl tickets are available at SuperbTicketsOnline.com for the NFL’s championship game. The top sporting event on the American sporting calendar will take place in New Orleans. It is set to kick off at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at 5:30 p.m. CDT on Feb. 3. The game is annually played in a sold-out stadium, and it garners some of the highest television ratings for any program broadcast throughout the entire year.
The 2013 contest will serve as the 30th anniversary of the 1983 game. In that earlier contest, the Washington Redskins claimed their first title with a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. John Riggins was named the game's MVP after he rushed for 166 yards.
That game was played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. This historic stadium has also played host to the World Cup, the Women’s World Cup, events at two Olympic Games and the annual Rose Bowl college football game in addition to the NFL’s championship game on five occasions. The other title games played here were held in 1977, 1980, 1987 and 1993.
The NFL season of 1982 leading up to the championship game in 1983 was most remembered for having its regular-season schedule significantly reduced due to a players’ strike. Each team played just nine games instead of the normal 16. Divisions were ignored as the top eight teams in both the AFC and NFC qualified for the playoffs and played a single-elimination format until two teams remained.
During that regular season, Washington earned the NFC’s No. 1 seed with an 8-1 record, and Miami (7-2) was the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Both teams won three straight home games in consecutive weeks to qualify for the title tilt before Washington made it four playoff wins in four weeks with its championship victory over the Dolphins. The 1982 season is also historic in that it marked the first time that teams qualified for the playoffs with losing records. The only other such occurrence came in 2010 when Seattle qualified for postseason play with a 7-9 mark.
