Any thoughts on the best single play in Super Bowl history?

I'd have to go with Mike Jones' final tackle at the end of Super Bowl XXXIV.

In no order - Jones, Taylor, Harrison, Allen, Tyree would be my top 5, I think.

For a few minutes, I was worried that the new #1 would be Belichick letting Bradshaw fall ass-backwards into the end zone.
