All the NFL records set at Super Bowl LIII


//

Super Bowl LIII might have been a bit of an anti-climax to the high-scoring affair many had predicted, but plenty of new NFL records were made in New England's win over the Rams.

1. It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl of all time - 13-3 - eclipsing a 21-point snoozer in 1973 when the Miami Dolphins capped its perfect season with an ugly victory over Washington. Super Bowl LIII also had the fewest touchdowns ever scored at an NFL decider (1).

2. The Rams scored the equal-fewest points in a Super Bowl, and New England scored the fewest points of a winning team at a Super Bowl. Rams quarterback finished with a 19/38 completion rate with one interception and was sacked four times.

3. Tom Brady took the crown of the only player to ever win six Super Bowl titles. The Patriots matched the record held by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the franchise's sixth Super Bowl victory.

4. Patriots cornerback Jason McCourty and brother Devin McCourty became the first twins to play in and win a Super Bowl.

5. LA punter Johnny Hekker had the longest punt ever recorded in the history of the Super Bowl with a 65-yard bomb. It was a busy night for Hekker as the Rams offense stumbled on third down time and again, with the Rams also setting an NFL record for the most consecutive drives ending with a punt (8).

6. MVP Julian Edelman had a cracking game as Brady's favourite receiving target. He finished with a team-high 141 yards, adding to his postseason total, which was the second-most in NFL history, and he equalled the record for most receptions in the first half of a Super Bowl (7).

7. Tom Brady, 41, became the oldest starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl.

8. New England took the record for the most appearances in a Super Bowl (11).

9. New England's Bill Belichick became the oldest winning head coach of a Super Bowl (66) in his record ninth Super Bowl appearance and record-equalling sixth Super Bowl win, joining George Halas and Curly Lambeau.

10. Tom Brady now has more passes (392), completions (256), and passing yards (2,838) than any other player in NFL history.
