    New Orleans will host its 10th Super Bowl when the 49ers and Ravens clash on Sunday, tying the Crescent City with the Miami area as the most frequent venue for the Big Game.

    The last Super Bowl played in New Orleans - Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 - was an instant classic with the Patriots edging the Rams on a last-second field goal. But, as you can see in this NFL Films video compilation, most of the Super Bowls in New Orleans have been decidedly one-sided affairs.
