3 Super Bowls with the highest scores in NFL history

The Super Bowl can often be a wary affair, with both teams representing the AFC and NFC letting nerves get to them early in the game, perhaps more afraid of losing the game than anything else.

However, over the years, for all the low-scoring title games in the past, we have just as many high-scoring games, where the teams are a joy to see on offense, and the defense doesn’t seem to play a lot of games. a part in the game at all. Here are three of the most successful Super Bowls in NFL history.

The NFL’s Highest Super Bowls

The 2003 Super Bowl saw Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden take on his former employers, the Oakland Raiders, in what proved to be a rout for Tampa Bay, which saw many many fans nickname it the “Gruden Bowl.”

They scored 48 points as Oakland quarterback Rich Gannon had one of the worst games of his career, throwing a Super Bowl record five interceptions. Worse, three of those interceptions were returned for touchdowns by the Buccaneers as they headed home with the Lombardi Trophy. The Buccaneers also managed to sack Gannon five times and scored 34 unanswered points to put the game to bed in the third quarter.

Many Buccaneers players put Gruden’s knowledge of the Raiders as a critical factor in the win, as he of course had prior knowledge of their playbook. Oakland hadn’t changed their audible call system, which Gruden had installed, so they could warn repeatedly.

#2 – Philadelphia Eagles 41-33 New England Patriots, 2018

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were in the midst of the most successful period of their dynasty when they faced the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII in 2018. However, they were stunned when the quarterback assistant Nick Foles had the game of his life. as the Eagles won 41-33. Foles and Brady both set huge stat lines, with both passing for three touchdowns and Brady rushing for over 500 yards.

However, it was a strip-sack by Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham to call off the game as the Eagles won their first Lombardi Trophy. Despite Graham’s heroism, this game will forever be synonymous with Nick Foles’ “Philly Special,” which no NFL fan will ever forget, and Foles more than deserved his Super Bowl MVP award.

This game sets the NFL’s all-time record for most yards by both teams, with 1,151 yards, which were not rushed in any regular or postseason game.

#1 – San Francisco 49ers 49-26 San Diego Chargers, 1995

The San Francisco 49ers became the first NFL franchise to win five championships when they beat the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX and didn’t do it in style!

Quarterback Steve Young tore the Chargers apart, passing for six touchdowns and no interceptions, with a passer rating of 134.8. His six touchdown passes remain the most of any quarterback in the big game.

Of course, fellow Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice also had a hand in the proceedings, catching 10 passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns, which tied the record for most touchdowns by a player in a only Super Bowl.

The Chargers had no answer to the 49ers’ powerful offense, and the franchise has not returned to the title game since that rout.
