With the end of 2019 approaching and the 2010s decade only a few days away from being over, I thought I'd rank the 10 Super Bowl winners of the decade.

While all the teams were obviously great enough to be champions, I think there are some teams that stand out from the rest.

Here we go:

10. The 2014-2015 New England Patriots.

This team ranks No. 10 for me because there is good reason to think why they shouldn't have won this game at all. The Patriots beat the Seahawks 28-24 in a back and forth game that we will all remember for the Seahawks not running the ball on the 1-yard line, and throwing an interception to Malcolm Butler.

If Seattle had given the ball to Marshawn Lynch instead, they would be on this list.

9. The 2009-2010 New Orleans Saints

This Saints team was the first and only Saints team to reach the Super Bowl. The team went 13-3 and was the No.1 seed in the NFC and beat Brett Favre's Vikings on the way to the Super Bowl.

With a balanced running attack featuring Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush along with Drew Brees, this offense was deadly.

They defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 after a game-clinching pick-six from Tracy Porter as the Colts were driving to tie the game.

One of the bigger plays of this Super Bowl was Sean Payton having the guts to start off the 2nd half with an onside kick that the Saints recovered. This still remains the only Super Bowl Drew Brees has played in, which could change this season.

8. The 2018-2019 New England Patriots

This Patriots team will most likely go down as one of the worst teams Tom Brady has had to win a Super Bowl. They finished the regular season at 11-5, which got them a bye and the No. 2 seed in the AFC.

They then went on to the LA Chargers, and the No. 1 seed Kansas City Chiefs in a crazy championship game to become the AFC Champions. They then beat the LA Rams 13-3 in a defensive Super Bowl battle and were not very flashy whatsoever.

Credit to the Pats for winning their sixth Super Bowl obviously, but this team ranks No. 8 for me of this decade.

7. The 2010-2011 New York Giants

This Giants team was very good on both sides of the football.

After only going 9-7 in the regular season, the Giants beat the Falcons, Packers and 49ers to advance to the big game.

Eli Manning had great offensive weapons with Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham. Ahmad Bradshaw, among many others. The Giants defense was also very stout with studs such as Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, plus a good secondary.

They were able to take the lead in the game after a crazy sideline catch by Mario Manningham that propelled the Giants to beat the Patriots 21-17.

6. The 2010-2011 Green Bay Packers

This Packers team was the only team from the decade to be a No. 6 seed in the Playoffs and win the Super Bowl.

Led by Aaron Rodgers, this team was very tough on both sides of the football. With a strong group of WR's featuring Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, this team had plenty of firepower for Rodgers to work with.

The team defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win the first Packers Super Bowl since the 1990s.

5. The 2011-2012 Baltimore Ravens

This Super Bowl team was almost too good to be true. The Ravens leader Ray Lewis was at the end of his career, and only wanted to play one more season to see his team win a Super Bowl and that is exactly what happened.

Joe Flacco was incredible for the Ravens during this playoff and Super Bowl run, as the Ravens ended up taking down the 49ers 34-31.

4. The 2015-2016 Denver Broncos

This team was all about the defensive side of the ball.

Peyton Manning, who is without question one of the greatest QB's of all time, was in the last year of his career. This team relied on Von Miller and other defensive members to lead them to the promised land.

They faced off in Super Bowl 50 against the league MVP Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers who had only lost one game all season.

Von Miller was able to smother Newton all game, as he strip-sacked him twice that both led to Bronco touchdowns.

3. The 2017-2018 Philadelphia Eagles

This Eagles team had a ton of heart. After losing their QB and MVP front runner Carson Wentz due to a torn ACL in the middle of the season, everyone including me started to count out the Eagles.

They still managed to get the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and beat the Falcons and Vikings on the way to the Super Bowl.

Backup QB Nick Foles will forever remain a Philly legend for how he played in the playoffs as well as the Super Bowl. Foles was named MVP after throwing for 373 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Eagles 41-33 win over the Patriots.

2. The 2017- 2018 New England Patriots

This Patriots team was maybe the most resilient team of the decade. They were down 28-3 in the third quarter of the Super Bowl and were somehow able to come back and win 34-28.

This was easily the biggest Super Bowl comeback and the first overtime game in Super Bowl history. This may be Tom Brady's defining moment in his career, and certainly, a moment the Atlanta Falcons never live down.

1. The 2012-2013 Seattle Seahawks

This was an easy pick for me. The Denver Broncos came into this game with the highest-scoring offense in NFL history, and still only scored eight points to this Seattle team.

The game started with a bang as on the first offensive snap, the ball was snapped over Peyton Manning's head and recovered for a safety.

The Seahawks were overwhelmingly dominant in every part of this game, as they also got a kick return touchdown to start the second half from Percy Harvin.

The final score of this game was 43-8 and it really didn't even feel that close.
