Landon’s Super Bowl 48 Trivia and Interesting Facts – Part 1
After last night's Super Bowl, I ventured out into the Internet in search of some trivia and interesting facts on the game for all the sports junkies out there. Here's some of what I came up with:
- The Denver Broncos are the first Super Bowl team to be shut out at halftime since the New York Giants in Super Bowl 35 in 2001. They trailed the Baltimore Ravens 10-to-zero at the half, before ultimately losing 34-to-7.
- The Seattle Seahawks' safety 12 seconds into the game became the fastest score EVER at the start of a Super Bowl. It beat the 2007 Super Bowl...when the Chicago Bears started off against the Indianapolis Colts with a kickoff return for a touchdown. That happened 14 seconds into the game. However, the Colts came back to win that one, 29-to-17.
- Interestingly enough, this is the third-straight year with a safety in the Super Bowl, but it's only the ninth safety in the Super Bowl's 48-year history.
