10) Pittsburgh Steelers, Super Bowl XIV
LT: Jon Kolb
LG: Sam Davis
C: Mike Webster
RG: Gerry Mullins
RT: Larry Brown
I believe this line was better than the Super Bow XIII line from the year before, because of the addition of right tackle Larry Brown. The line was anchored by possibly the greatest center in history Mike Webster.
9) Minnesota Vikings, Super Bowl IV
LT: Grady Alderman
LG: Jim Vellone
C: Mick Tingelhoff
RG: Milt Sunde
RT: Ron Yary
The 1969 Vikings earned an NFL-best 12-2 regular season record and also led the NFL (this was the last year the NFL and AFL were separate) with 379 total points scored. Quarterback Joe Kapp passed for 1,726 yards and 19 touchdowns and was named to the 1970 Pro Bowl.
Running backs Dave Osborn, Bill Brown and Oscar Reed combined for 1,466 yards and 11 scores in the regular season.
Center Mick Tingelhoff and right tackle Ron Yary anchored this venerable line, and both currently reside in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tingelhoff and left tackle Grady Alderman were named to the 1970 Pro Bowl.
8) Cincinnati Bengals, Super Bowl XXIII
LT: Anthony Munoz
LG: Bruce Reimers
C: Bruce Kozerski
RG: Max Montoya
RT: Brian Blados
During the regular season, this group helped quarterback Boomer Esiason pass for an impressive 3,525 yards with 28 touchdowns. It also helped produce a 1,239-yard rushing season from running back James Brooks.
The offensive line was anchored by the greatest offensive lineman in history Anthony Munoz. Joe Walter was also a huge part of this group’s success until an injury later in the season ended his season. Brian Blados stepped in and had an excellent postseason run. Guards Max Montoya and Bruce Reimers were outstanding all year and as players are underrated. Center Bruce Kozerski was a stabilizing force in the middle.
7) Oakland Raiders, Super Bowl II
LT: Bob Svihus
LG: Gene Upshaw
C: Jim Otto
RG: Wayne Hawkins
RT: Harry Schuh
The 1967 season saw The Mad Bomber Daryle Lamonica put up an incredible 3,228 yards passing with 30 touchdowns. The season also saw Raiders rushers Hewritt Dixon and Clem Daniels combine for 1,134 yards and nine touchdowns.
Anchored by future Hall of Famers Gene Upshaw and Jim Otto. Though not Hall of Famers themselves, Guard Wayne Hawkins and tackle Harry Schuh both made multiple appearances in the AFL All-Star Game during their careers.
