It is Super Bowl season, and I am counting down the top five luckiest plays in Super Bowl history.

Luck is an important part of sports. No matter what, luck is needed to win any game in most every sport, especially an NFL Super Bowl.

I have judged the amount of luck on one basic principle: If you asked each team and the players involved to repeat the same play 10 times, how many times would they get the same result? And using this hypothesis, it was pretty simple to come up with the five luckiest plays of Super Bowl history.
