Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien threw for nearly 300 yards and two touchdowns in Super Bowl XXVI against the Buffalo Bills, leading the franchise to a third Super Bowl title and winning game MVP honors in the process.

About a week after the game, Sports Illustrated put Rypien on the cover of their Feb. 3, 1992 edition with the caption “Let ‘Er Rip” as seen below:
