Sure, it's easy to remember quarterback Doug Williams leading the Redskins to their second Super Bowl victory, a 42-10 romp over the Denver Broncos.

But a recent video, which highlights the "unsung heroes" of Super Bowls past, hopes you'll remember one of the other key members from that championship run.

Timmy Smith, the Redskins running back that tallied two touchdowns and 204 rushing yards in the big game, ranks No. 3 in the Top 5, falling behind last year's Malcolm Butler (the Patriots cornerback that intercepted Russell Wilson -- understandable) and David Tyree (the Giants wide receiver who made the famous helmet catch – I suppose).

If you remember (how could you not), the Redskins fell behind early 10-0 before a Redskins offensive explosion put the game out of reach.

Smith's contributions included a 58-yard running score and he closed out the assault with a four-yard touchdown run after Washington had scored 35 points in just 18 plays to let fans breathe easy.

Let's remember Timmy today.
