The NFL's ninth week in the 2021 regular season includes several significant matchups.Five of this week's game are rematches of previous Super Bowls, including the first ever Super Bowl game between the Packers and Chiefs. The Colts-Jets showdown this weekend is a rematch of the greatest upset in pro football history, while this weekend's clash between the Cowboys and Broncos is a rematch of one of the most flawed championship games in Super Bowl history. We also have a rematch of one of the greatest finishes in Super Bowl history, when nearly forced overtime against the . And whenever you're talking Super Bowls, it's hard not to mention , who has played in 10 of the previous 55 big games. Brady's second Super Bowl win is part of this week's rematches of Super Bowls past.Here are three little known facts from each of the NFL's four Week 9 Super Bowl rematches. How many of these facts did you already know? Let me know at .The only dual broadcast Super BowlFor the first and only time, the first Super Bowl was televised by two different networks. CBS and NBC were at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In fact, the second half's opening kickoff had to be re-kicked as one of the networks had yet to return from commercial break. CBS and NBC would rotate who covered the next 17 Super Bowls. CBS has covered a record 21 Super Bowls that includes the ' win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. at each Super Bowl that has been previously covered by CBS.  All-time talentThe '60s Packers are one of the greatest teams of all-time. The '66 Packers, Vince Lombardi's fourth of five championship teams, boasted 11 Hall of Fame players. But the Packers' first Super Bowl opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs, also boasted a roster full of talent. Led by coach Hank Stram, the '66 Chiefs fielded six Hall of Fame players that included five on defense. Kansas City's roster also included generational talents in running back Mike Garrett and receiver Otis Taylor.When you add in Lombardi, Stram and Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, there were 20 Hall of Famers who took part in the first Super Bowl. The only Super Bowl with more Hall of Fame participants was Super Bowl XIII, when the Steelers defeated the Cowboys, 35-31.The most expected starOn a field with numerous future Hall of Famers, Max McGee, a 34-year-old backup receiver who caught only four pa ses during the '66 regular season, was Super Bowl I's biggest star. Expecting to see little -- if any -- playing time, McGee notoriously partied until the mid-morning hours leading up to the game. But after starting receiver Boyd Dowler left Jordan Berry Jersey  the game with an an early injury, the stage was set for one of the most unexpected performances in Super Bowl history. The confident McGee torched Kansas City's defense to the tune of seven catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns. McGee's performance included scoring the Super Bowl's first touchdown, a 37-yard touchdown that included an impre sive on-handed catch.  "Max, who has announced to anybody that would listen, 'Hey, I can kill these guys if I get in this game,' he proceeds to have an MVP type of performance," former Packers offensive lineman Bill Curry . "This is the stuff of legend and it should be. Bart got the most valuable player because he earned it, but they probably should have split it and had co-MVPs because Max had that great of game."  No. 53: 1966 Super Bowl I - Chiefs vs. Packers "The First AFL-NFL World Championship Game" (Jan. 15, 1967) : NFL 100 Greatest Games on  NFL (@NFL)  Legendary a sistant coaches Super Bowl III is most famous for the fact that the Jets, an 18-point underdog, pulled off the greatest upset win in Super Bowl history. But what is often forgotten is how good of a defensive battle this game was. The Jets' defense came away with five turnovers, while the Colts held the Jets to 14 points below their season average.Two talented  Kellen Mond Jersey defensive a sistants likely played a key role in that defensive excellence. The Jets' defensive line was coached by Buddy Ryan, who was later the defensive line coach of the ' "Purple People Eater" defense that advanced to Super Bowl XI. As the ' defensive coordinator, Ryan famously led Chicago's ferocious "46" defense that dominated the in Super Bowl XX.  The Colts' defense was led by defensive coordinator Chuck Noll, who shortly after Super Bowl III would be named the head coach of the . Led by the "Steel Curtain" defense, Noll's teams would win four Super Bowls over a six-year span during the 1970s.First 'Super Bowl'While it was the third game between the AFL and NFL champions, this was the first game that was referred to as the "Super Bowl." The first two games were simply known as the "AFL-NFL World Championship Game," with the NFL champion winning the first two games by a combined score of 68-26. The term Super Bowl by Hunt, who along with owning the Chiefs was the AFL principle founder. Hunt shared his name for the AFL-NFL title game with then NFL-commi sioner Pete Rozelle ahead of the first championship game between the two leagues.Where did Hunt's "Super Bowl" idea come from? The answer can be traced back to a kid's toy that was played with by Hunt's children during the mid '60s. One day, Hunt saw his kids playing with a Superball, a " " that was branded as "the greatest ball ever created."  Joe Namath did not throw a single fourth quarter pa sThe Jets brash quarterback, who went 17 of 28 for 206 yards during the first three quarters, spent the final quarter of Super Bowl III handing the ball to Matt Snell, Emerson Boozer, and Bill Mathis. Snell rushed for 36 of the Jets' 48 yards during the quarter, as New York extended its lead to 16-0 on Jim Turner's fourth field goal of the game.While his fourth quarter was uneventful, Namath more than put his stamp on Super Bowl III during the game's first three quarters. Namath, in order to avoid the Colts' ferocious pa s rush, shortened his drop back. He also got rid of the ball substantially quicker than he did during New York's previous games. Namath also used Maynard, a Hall of Fame receiver, as a decoy while instead throwing to George Sauer, who caught eight pa ses for 133 yards. A pair of Namath completions to Sauer set up Snell's second quarter touchdown. Namath's 35-yard completion to Sauer on the Jets' next drive served as New York's longest play of the afternoon.Namath also called a brilliant game, as he consistently kept the Colts off-guard with a perfect mix of runs and pa ses. Namath, to the chagrin of Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Curtis and the rest of the Colts' defense, called several draw plays that caught Baltimore's defense by surprise. The result was a New York offense that tallied more first downs and more total yards than Baltimore.    Jets-Colts. 18-point underdogs. The guarantee. You know how it finished.No. 6 on the NFL's 100 Greatest Games list: Super Bowl III  New York Jets (@nyjets)  First Super Bowl played in a domeSuper Bowl IX was supposed to be the first Super Bowl played inside, but due to the Superdome still being under construction, the game was moved to Tulane Stadium. Three years later, the Superdome played host to one of the most turnover-heavy Super Bowls ever. Denver committed eight of the game's 10 turnovers, as the Cowboys pulled Daunte Culpepper Jersey  away in the second half en route to their second Super Bowl win of the decade.The was also the first prime time Super Bowl. While the 11 previous Super Bowls started in the mid-afternoon, Super Bowl XII was kicked off at 6:17 p.m. ET.Heisman-winning backfieldFor the first time, two former Heisman Trophy winners shared a starting backfield in the Super Bowl. Fresh off of his Heisman and national championship campaign in 1976, former Pitt Panther Tony Dorsett was selected by the Cowboys with the No. 2 overall pick in the 1977 draft. His quarterback, Roger Staubach, won the Heisman Trophy in 1963 in leading Navy to a 9-2 record and No. 7 overall ranking. Dorsett, who became the first player to win an NCAA title and a Super Bowl title in consecutive years, scored the game's first touchdown on a three-yard run. Staubach was an efficient 17 of 25 pa sing that included his 45-yard touchdown pa s to Butch Johnson that gave Dallas a 20-3 third quarter lead.  Denver QB on wrong side of historyDenver quarterback Craig Morton became the first quarterback to face the team he had previously led to a Super Bowl in the big game. Unfortunately for him, Morton also became the first starting quarterback to lose a Super Bowl with different franchises. Seven years after Morton and the Cowboys came up just short against the Colts in Super  Stephen Weatherly Jersey Bowl V, Morton was on the wrong end of a dominant performance by Dallas' "No Name" defense. Morton threw as many interceptions (four) as completed pa ses before he was pulled from the game in the third quarter. Morton's biggest tormentors were Cowboys defensive linemen Randy White and Harvey Martin, the only co-MVPs in Super Bowl history.  No. 17: 1977 , XII Champions : Greatest Teams on  NFL (@NFL)  Longest gap between Super BowlsRams coach Dick Vermeil waited 19 years between his first Super Bowl as a coach and his second. Vermeil, who had a 15-year hiatus between coaching the Eagles and Rams, led the Eagles to their first trip to the Super Bowl at the end of the 1980 season. The Eagles were upset in Super Bowl XV by the , 27-10. In 1999, Vermeil guided the Rams to the franchise's second Super Bowl and first since the franchise moved from Los Angeles to St. Louis. Vermeil's gap between Super Bowls is the longest for a head coach.Warner's recordA little-known backup at the start of the '99 season, Warner came off of the bench to win MVP honors following a breakout regular season. In Super Bowl XXXIV, the former grocery store clerk became the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to throw for over 400 yards. Warner's 429 yards against the Titans stood as the Super Bowl record for 17 years before it was broken by Tom Brady, who threw for 466 yards in New England's come-from-behind victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI. A year later, Brady broke his own record by throwing for 505 yards in the Patriots' 41-33 lo s to the Eagles.  Warner's biggest throw of Super Bowl XXXIV was a 73-yard touchdown to Isaac Bruce that gave the Rams the lead with 2:12 remaining.McNair's recordTitans quarterback Steve McNair had arguably the best performance by a losing quarterback in Super Bowl history. McNair ran for a still-standing quarterback record 64 rushing yards against the Rams. He also completed 22 pa ses while helping will the Titans back from a 16-point deficit. He accounted for all of the Titans' yards on the game's final drive, a drive that ended with the Titans one yard away from forcing overtime.  The took the lead in the last two minutes, and the Titans were on the verge of scoring...Then Super Bowl XXXIV came down to the very last tackle  : NFL 100 GREATEST GAMES on NFL Network  NFL Network (@nflnetwork)  Longest Super Bowl playMushin Muhammad broke Antonio Freeman's six-year-old record for the longest offensive play in Super Bowl history. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Panthers' receiver gave Carolina its first lead on a 85-yard touchdown reception from Jake Delhomme. It is one of just three offensive plays in Super Bowl history that was at least 80 yards. Kenny King's 80-yard catch-and-run in Super Bowl XV served as the Super Bowl's longest offensive play until Freeman hauled in an 81-yard touchdown pa s from Brett Favre during Green Bay's 35-21 win over New England in Super Bowl XXXI.  Vrabel makes history17 years after William "The Refrigerator" Perry became the first defensive player to score an offensive touchdown in the Super Bowl, Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel became the first defensive player to catch a touchdown pa s in the big game. Vrabel, lined up on the left side of the offensive line as a tight end, took advantage of a "pick" set up by tight end Daniel Graham, who started on the play on the right side of the line. With his defender on the ground, Vrabel pulled down Tom Brady's one-yard touchdown pa s that gave the Patriots a 29-22 lead with three minutes remaining. Vrabel would catch his second Super Bowl touchdown one year later in New England's 24-21 win over the .Record-setting quarterAfter a combined 24 points were scored during the game's first three quarters (that included a scorele s third quarter), 37 points were scored during the fourth quarter, making it he highest-scoring fourth quarter in Super Bowl history. Patriots running back Antowain Smith started the scoring with a two-yard run that stretched New England's lead to 21-10. Carolina countered with consecutive scores to take its first lead of the game. After Vrabel's touchdown gave lead back to New England, Delhomme's 12-yard touchdown pa s to Ricky Proehl tied the score with 1:08 remaining.Any thoughts of overtime were quickly dashed when Carolina's ensuing kickoff sailed out of bounds, giving the Patriots a short field and plenty to time to get into field goal range. After two completions to Troy Brown and a short completion to Graham moved the ball to Carolina's 40-yard- A.J. Rose Jr. Jersey line, Brady hit Deion Branch for 17 yards to put New England well within range. Similar to his game-winning kick in Super Bowl XXXVI, Vinateiri split the uprights while capping off the Patriots' second of three Super Bowl wins in a four-year span.    The most underrated Super Bowl of all time?After no points in the first 26 minutes, Super Bowl XXXVIII turned into a back-and-forth THRILLER.(Feb. 1, 2004)  NFL Throwback (@nflthrowback)  The new NFL season is here!
