There aren't a lot of Atlanta Falcons fans in Eastern Iowa. But back in the late 1990's and early 2000's, there were plenty of people rooting for those 'Dirty Birds'. The reason was Tim Dwight. One of Iowa's all-time great football players was a rookie for Atlanta the last time the Falcons made it to the Super Bowl. Dwight never got a ring as Denver won the title that year.

You can watch Dwight recall his Super Bowl memory HERE, in an interview with The Des Moines Register. As far as video of that historic run? Well, it's been tough to find. Below is the highlight video from Super Bowl 33. Dwight's kickoff return happened at the start of the 4th quarter. It was too little too late for Atlanta, but it still is a cool memory for Hawkeye football fans!
