This time, however, the kick sailed wide left. From there, the Atlanta Falcons scored the tying touchdown and won 30-27 in overtime.
The Falcons would go on to lose the Super Bowl 34-19 to the Denver Broncos. The Broncos, who won the previous Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers, won a second consecutive AFC title by beating the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets in the playoffs.
The night prior to Super Bowl XXXIII, free safety Eugene Robinson was arrested for soliciting oral sex from an undercover police officer.
Ironically, Robinson accepted the Bart Starr Award for "high moral character" from Athletes in Action earlier that day. He would start in the Super Bowl, but according to Bob McGinn's The Ultimate Super Bowl Book, Robinson's arrest was a distraction.
"I think it was a huge mental distraction, if nothing else," Atlanta defensive coordinator Rich Brooks said, according to McGinn's book. "That, I think, took whatever advantage we had [in the Super Bowl] away from us."
