Super Bowl XX was an American football game played on January 26, 1986 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion following the 1985 regular season.

NFL owners awarded the hosting of Super Bowl XX to New Orleans, Louisiana on December 14, 1982. This was the sixth time that New Orleans hosted the Super Bowl. Tulane Stadium was the site of Super Bowls IV, VI, and IX; while the Louisiana Superdome previously hosted XII and XV.

In the playoffs, the Patriots qualified as the AFC's second wild card, the last playoff seed under the rules of that time, and were forced to spend all of the postseason on the road. Thus going into the playoffs, it seemed unlikely that New England would become the fourth wild card team to advance to a Super Bowl.

But the Patriots shocked everybody, beating the New York Jets 26-14, Los Angeles Raiders 27-20, and the Dolphins 31-14 - all on the road - to make it to the Super Bowl. The win against Miami had been especially surprising, not only because Miami was the only team to beat Chicago in the season, but also because New England had not won in the Orange Bowl (Miami's then-home field) since 1966, the Dolphins' first season (then in the AFL). The Patriots had lost to Miami there 18 consecutive times, including a 30-27 loss in their 15th game of the season. But New England dominated the Dolphins in the AFC Championship Game, recording two interceptions from quarterback Dan Marino and recovering 4 fumbles.

Meanwhile, the Bears became the first team in NFL history to shut out both of their opponents in the playoffs, beating the New York Giants 21-0 and the Los Angeles Rams 24-0.

Much of the Super Bowl pregame hype centered around Bears quarterback McMahon. First, he was fined by the NFL during the playoffs for a violation of the league's dress code, wearing a head band on which he had handwritten "Adidas". He then started to wear a head band saying "Rozelle", after then-league commissioner Pete Rozelle.

McMahon was also suffering a sore rear end from a hit he took in the NFC Championship Game. So he flew in his acupuncturist into New Orleans to get treatment. During practice four days before the Super Bowl, he started wearing a hand band that said "Acupuncture".

McMahon's most outrageous stunt involved mooning a passing helicopter flying overhead and other photographers during practice to show off his injured rear end. Pictures of that incident then appeared on the sports sections of many newspapers across the country.

Another anecdote involving Jim McMahon during the Super Bowl anticipation was the New Orleans� press reporting a supposed quote of McMahon referring to the women of New Orleans as "sluts". This caused wide controversy among the ladies of New Orleans and forced McMahon to publicly apologize on sports radio, in which he denounced the claim as false, indicating (amusingly) that he couldn�t have said such things simply because he�s a late-sleeper, and wouldn�t have been up that early in the morning (of the supposed day, apparently) to publicly smear the women of New Orleans
