A host of Super Bowl records were set and tied during Sunday’s clash between the Broncos and Panthers.
With Denver winning 24–10, Peyton Manning became the oldest quarterback ever to start—and to win—the Super Bowl, at age 39.
Other new records include Jordan Norwood’s 61-yard punt return, a combined 12 sacks between teams, and the fewest total yards in a game by a winning team, with the Broncos amassing just 194.
Panthers defensive lineman Kony Ealy tied the record for most sacks in a Super Bowl with three. Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan tied a mark with two fumble recoveries. Malik Jackson’s fumble-recovery touchdown tied the record (no player has recovered two for a score in one Super Bowl).
