Sullenberger, praised last month as a hero for a skillful landing that saved lives after both the plane's engines were disabled following a collision with a flock of birds, was introduced to a standing ovation at Raymond James Stadium, along with co-pilot Jeffrey B. Skiles and flight attendants Doreen Walsh, Sheila Dail and Donna Dent.

All 155 passengers and crew members were rescued.

The NFL also honored Gen. David Petraeus, the head of U.S. Central Command, during a pregame ceremony. He was joined on the field by John Elway, Roger Craig and Lynn Swann -- stars of Super Bowls played 10, 20 and 30 years ago, respectively -- for the coin toss.
