Test Your Super Bowl Knowledge

Answer Key

1. NFC
With a total of 25 wins, teams in the National Football Conference have kissed the Vince Lombardi Trophy four more times than their AFC rivals (21).

2. Cleveland
The Rock and Roll Capital of the world has never hosted a Super Bowl, and the Browns have never played in one. However the team does have three AFC Championship appearances (’86, ’87 and ’89).

3. Super Bowl I
Maybe the league failed to adequately promote the new championship game, or people weren’t interested in the halftime entertainment (the Grambling State and University of Arizona marching bands); but Super Bowl I in 1967, when the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10, is the only one for which the stands were not sold out.

4. Super Bowl XXIV: San Francisco 55, Denver Broncos 10
On January 28, 1990, the 49ers kicked the Broncos to the curb and then some, and their 55 points remain the most ever scored by one team in a Super Bowl game. Other notables include Super Bowl XX (Chicago Bears 46, New England Patriots 10); Super Bowl XXVII (Dallas Cowboys 52, Buffalo Bills 17); Super Bowl XXII (Washington Redskins 42, Denver Broncos 10); Super Bowl XXXV (Baltimore Ravens 34, New York Giants 7); and Super Bowl XXXVII (Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48, Oakland Raiders 21).

5. Super Bowl XXXVIII
Mark Roberts was leveled to the ground by New England Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham after disrupting the game by running nude onto the field. Why don’t you remember this strange event? Probably because Roberts was overshadowed by Janet Jackson’s little  ”wardrobe malfunction” during halftime.

6. The Pittsburgh Steelers
With six championships (record 6–2), the Steelers have won the most Super Bowls. The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have five wins each (Cowboys 5–3 and 49ers a perfect 5–0).

7. Jerry Rice
With visits to Super Bowls XXIII, XXIV, XXIX as a San Francisco 49er and XXXVII as an Oakland Raider, Jerry Rice holds the career records for most points (48) and touchdowns (8) by a single player in Super Bowl history.

8. No
The Harbaugh brothers, John and Jim, will be the first siblings to face off in a Super Bowl. However three sets of brothers have played in the same Super Bowl for the same team: Glenn and Lyle Blackwood for the Dolphins (in 1983 and 1985); Archie and Ray Griffin for the Bengals (1982); and Keith and Jim Fahnhorst for the 49ers (1985), although Jim was inactive for the game.

9. Devin Hester in Super Bowl XLI
Return man Devin Hester gave the Chicago Bears the earliest lead in Super Bowl history when he ran the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown. Naturally the Colts avoided kicking to Hester for the rest of the game.

10. Snow, all Wild-Card matchup, shutout, punt return for a touchdown, overtime

  1. Snow: We’ve had drizzle, rain and an ice storm, but no snow.
  2. An all Wild-Card matchup: although nine Wild Card teams have won titles, there have never been two in the same game.
  3. A shutout: so far, every Super Bowl has had a score on both ends.
  4. A punt return for a touchdown. But three blocked punts have been converted to touchdowns.
  5. Overtime: we’ve come close on several occasions. In Super Bowl V, Baltimore’s Jim O’Brien kicked a game-winning field goal with five seconds left. In Super Bowl XXXIV, Tennessee’s Kevin Dyson was stopped a yard short of a touchdown when an extra point would have led to a tie. New England’s Adam Vinatieri kicked a game-winning field goal with time expiring in Super Bowl XXXVI and another game-winner with four seconds left in Super Bowl XXXVIII.
