Super Bowl Records

Records are meant to be broken. However, most of the Super Bowl records have withstood the test of time. A lot of that is due to the fact that nearly half the records are partial to how many Super Bowls a player has participated in.

I have listed all of the Super Bowl records at the bottom of this article. I am going to go through and focus on the records that pertain to Super Bowl XLIX between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.

Tom Brady has just tied the record for most games played (6), which was previously held by Mike Lodish. He also has a chance to catch Joe Montana for most Super Bowl MVP awards. Brady previously won the award in the 2002 and 2004 Super Bowls.

Brady will also be extending his record of most completions in Super Bowls. He has 127 over his first five games. He holds the record for most passing yards (1,277) in Super Bowls as well. He has nine career touchdown passes in Super Bowls and will be chasing down Montana for most career passing touchdowns (11) in Super Bowl history.

The Patriots have now tied the Steelers and Cowboys with the most Super Bowl appearances (8) as a team. Brady and Bill Belichick now hold the record for most Super Bowl appearances as a player and head coach tandem with six.
