MINNEAPOLIS -- Scott Norwood is back for another shot at Super Bowl history.The Buffalo Bills place-kicker muffed his chance a year ago when he missed a 47-yard field goal that would have beaten the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXV. That missed kick -- wide right -- has haunted Norwood all season.And it was especially haunting in a regular-season game in Los Angeles against the Raiders. He missed field goals of 49, 32 and 42 yards, and an extra point, but salvaged a 30-27 victory with a 42-yard kick in overtime.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants co-owner Wellington Mara had seen this before. Another season was on the brink, and in the control of a kicker. Remember Pat Summerall in the snow against the Cleveland Browns in 1958, the field goal without which "The Greatest Game Ever Played" never would have been played? And Joe Danelo in overtime against the Dallas Cowboys in 1981 to end that excruciating 18-year drought with no playoff game? And Matt Bahr and Scott Norwood -- one good, one wide right -- when the Giants won a second Super Bowl in 1991?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Brad Daluiso learned the proper way to handle Super Bowl pressure and media attention from the best possible role model for a kicker. As a rookie with the Bills in 1991, Daluiso was the kickoff specialist. The field-goal kicker was Scott Norwood. Yes, that Scott Norwood. The guy who that January had missed wide right from 47 yards to seal a 20-19 victory for the Giants in Super Bowl XXV. Daluiso, a Giant since 1993, watched as Norwood handled the inevitable, endless questions leading up to Super Bowl XXVI.

TAMPA, Fla. -- He walked alone. And never has a more forlorn figure been seen on a football field. Scott Norwood, in a dramatic conclusion, was the difference between winning and losing the Super Bowl.Not in the 25-year Super series had it come down to the final play. In Super Bowl V, when the Baltimore Colts won the coveted prize, Jim O'Brien broke a tie with a 32-yard field goal with four seconds remaining.A miss would have meant overtime. But in Super Bowl XXV, it was a win or lose at that instant for Norwood and the Buffalo Bills.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Many of his teammates weren't even undressed, still celebrating the tough win, and Scott Norwood was almost ready to go. His hair was slick from a shower and his gray pants and white shirt and dark shoes were already on. A navy blazer hung alone in his locker, moments from his shoulders. His bag was packed.He glanced at the door, his eyes wandering where he wanted his feet to take him. Out. He wanted out. Out of this hot room. Out the door and on the team bus, where there would be peace instead of questions, where no one would ask him to remember the Super Bowl.
