Super Bowl XVII was an American football game played on January 30, 1983 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion following the 1982 regular season. The National Football Conference (NFC) champion Washington Redskins (12-1) defeated the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Miami Dolphins (10-3), 27–17, as the Redskins scored 17 unanswered points in the second half and gained a Super Bowl record 276 yards on the ground, while holding the Dolphins to just 47 offensive plays for 176 total yards, 76 of which came on a single play.

Power and Glory
John Riggins made Super Bowl XVII a one-man show
Few players have dominated a postseason the way Washington's John Riggins did after the strike-shortened 1982 campaign. In the three games heading into Super Bowl XVII, he rushed 98 times for 444 yards. SI's Paul Zimmerman was on hand at Pasadena's Rose Bowl for his finale.
Super Bowl XVII—the game, the week preceding it and its aftermath—was molded in the image of John Riggins. It bore his stamp right from the opening gun, the Tuesday Picture Day, when the Redskins' fullback implacably stared out over his sea of questioners, and it carried his signature last Sunday night when he stood on a platform in the steaming press tent and acknowledged his selection as MVP after Washington had knocked off Miami 27--17.
What he had done on that long day's journey into night was grab modern NFL football by the scruff of the neck and toss it a few decades back into a simpler era—big guy running behind bigger guys blocking. His numbers: 38 carries for 166 yards, one pass reception for 15.
The game had other elements, of course. Washington tried a whole battery of fancy stuff in the first three quarters: a flea-flicker off a reverse, another one off a straight handoff and pitch-back, a tight end reverse, rollouts and half rolls and cross-field screens, even a brand new stunt called the Explode Package that had all five eligible receivers shifting before the snap. But all of it merely served as an appetizer for the meat-and-potatoes main course—Riggins and those big hogs in front of him.
Riggins and the Skins reached Super Bowl XVIII, but fell to the Raiders 38--9. He retired in '85 having rushed for 11,352 yards and 104 TDs.
Here's the other link to this story.
Let's get into the numbers.....
First off, SuperBowl XVII was played in the Rose Bowl which is supercharged with the energy of "Leo" because Rose (9615) factors into 641 prime X 15 and whenever you add/subract 641 "Prime of Rose" days to any day on the calendar you will subtract/add 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days. The Rose Bowl has hosted five (5) SuperBowls - 1977, 1980, 1983, 1987, 1993 - which mirrors the 5th sign of the zodiac, Leo. The Rose Bowl was officially dedicated on January 1, 1923 - see this link - and the year 1923 factors into 641 "Prime of Rose (9615)" X 3.
19830130 - 19230101 = 21944 days = 211 prime X 104.
If we move forward 23 "I (9) Am (14)" cycles of 211 prime days from 19830130 we will arrive at 19960514 which was/is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ. And 23 "I Am" days from 19960811 brings us to 9/03 which was the day that my late father passed/ascended into Heaven.
39 cycles of 211 prime days from 19830130 brings us to 20050811 which was the Divine Birthdate in "The Year of The Eucharist". 20050811 fell on a Thursday which is when the "Five Luminous Mysteries" - also referred to as "The Mysteries of Light" - are to be prayed. The 5th Luminous Mystery is "The Institution of The Eucharist". 2005, amazingly was the same year that Pope John Paul II passed/ascended on April 2nd which was 131 "Prime of ONE (655)" days from August 11th. Sister Lucia, the last of the 3 children who witnessed "Fatima" in 1917, passed/ascended on February 13th which was/is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from May 13th which was day ONE (1) of the 89th year since the events of Fatima began on May 13th in 1917.
There are 143 cycles of 211 prime days (30173) separating 19230101, the official dedication of the Rose Bowl, and 20050811, the Divine Birthdate (Thursday) during "The Year of The Eucharist". New Years Day, 1/01, is always 143 days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate.
The year 2005 was/is VERY powerful since it factors into 401 prime X 5 which is the prime of Rosary (961197) = 401 prime X 2397
Back to John Riggins.....
His number is 44.
The 44th prime number - include 1 in the count - is 191 which is the prime of God (764) = 191 prime X 4
In three playoff games John Riggins rushed for 444 yards which is one (1) from 445 which is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" from Leo (356).
Riggins gained 181 total yards - 166 on the ground and 15 through the air. 181 is the prime of We (55) Are (195) One (655) = 905 = 181 prime X 5.
181 "We Are One" prime days prior to 19830130, the date of SuperBowl XVII, brings us back to 19820802 which was/is Leo (356) days from August 11th in the year 1981 which was 23 "I (9) Am (14)" prime years from 1958 which was the advent of the 23rd "I Am" cycle of the 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" years which will end in 2047 = 23 X 89. Note that the Leo (356th) prime number consists of 23 and 89 conjoined as 2389 which proclaims "I Am Leo!"
The other numerical aspect to note is that SuperBowl XVII fell in the year 1983 which was 25 years from 1958 and the 25th prime number is 89, etc.
The final score 27-17 corresponds to 2717 and 2717 days from 19830130 brings us to 19900709 which was/is the 190th day of the year which is ONE (1) from 191, the prime of God (764) = 191 prime X 4.
