Super Bowl Trivia
Once again, American football’s top professional teams will soon meet at the Super Bowl. Friends might have invited you to Super Bowl parties in the past, and you might get an invite to another one this year. If you ever have trouble thinking of topics to discuss on such occasions, perhaps you can share some Super Bowl trivia.
Cities hosting Super Bowls
Super Bowl LVII (57) will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The 2023 big game will be the third time the Glendale arena has hosted the event and the fourth time hosting for the state of Arizona. What city has hosted the most Super Bowls? Miami has the record of hosting 11 of the pro-football championships. Orange Bowl Stadium held the game five times from 1968 to 1979, and the Miami Dolphins home, currently named Hard Rock Stadium, has held the six most recent Miami Super Bowls. New Orleans comes in second place hosting 10 Super Bowls, and Los Angeles resides in third place having hosted eight times. The 2024 and 2025 February championships will be in Paradise, Nevada, and New Orleans, respectively.
Super Bowl Scoring Records Trivia
Do you want to impress your family and friends with more sensational Super Bowl trivia? Let’s examine the highest and lowest-scoring contests. In 1990, the San Francisco 49ers scored eight touchdowns on route to collecting 55 points, with one missed extra point, in their matchup with the Denver Broncos. San Francisco still holds the record for most points scored and the largest margin of victory, 45 points, in a Super Bowl. Five years later, the 49ers and San Diego Chargers scored a combined 75 points making the game the highest-scored in Super Bowl history.
Most football fans enjoy seeing a flurry of touchdowns scored, but what about those low-scoring defensive battles? In 2019, the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl game ever played. The Rams’ three points matched the Dolphins’ January 1972 efforts to become the lowest-scoring teams in Super Bowl games. Ouch.
Super Bowl Winning Trivia
If you have followed the National Football League (NFL) over the last 20 years, you have heard of quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots football team. The Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers have each recorded six Super Bowl victories in their history and remain tied for the most Super Bowl wins. New England’s franchise has appeared in 11 Super Bowls, which is the most of any team. Brady’s Patriots nine Super Bowl trips and six wins span 17 years from 2002 to 2019.
It is not easy to win the big game, but several teams have won two consecutive Super Bowls. In 1967 and 1968, before the game was called the Super Bowl, the Green Bay Packers won back-to-back titles in the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. In 1973 and 1974, the Miami Dolphins brought home the Lombardi trophy. Miami capped off its first Super Bowl victory with a perfect season of 17 wins and zero losses and remains the only unbeaten team in NFL history. Pittsburgh completed back-to-back championships twice in 1974-1975 and 1979-1980. The 49ers repeated as champions in 1989 and 1990. The 1990s also saw the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos each complete the rare feat, and Brady’s Patriots did so in 2004-2005. No team has repeated as champions in over 18 years.
Now here is another rare fun fact. Linebacker Ken Norton Jr. and offensive lineman Russ Hochstein obtained the unique distinction of being the only players to win three consecutive Super Bowls. Norton Jr. played for the victorious Cowboys in the 1993 and 1994 Super Bowls and played for the 49ers in their 1995 big-game appearance. Hochstein won three championships in a row with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2003 Super Bowl and the Patriots in 2004 and 2005.
Super Bowl LVII will kick off on Sunday, February 12, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. EST. If you wonder what to serve or take to a Super Bowl party, consider preparing the always popular guacamole for family and friends.
