15 Super Bowl Facts – Super Bowl Trivia and Statistics

Heat up the chili and finalize your pizza order: Super Bowl LIII will take place today at 6:30 p.m. This year, CBS will broadcast the match-up between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams from Atlanta, Georgia. While Tom Brady and the Pats currently sit as the favorites, anyone who’s watched the big game in past few years (a.k.a. most of America) knows just anything can happen.

Take a look back at these surprising pieces of Super Bowl trivia as you finalize your watch party predictions and get ready to chow down on game day.


The highest Super Bowl score ever totaled 75 points.


The coldest Super Bowl took place in New Orleans.

While the NFL usually elects for warm-weather cities or enclosed arenas for the big game, the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins still battled 39-degree temps in Tulane Stadium during the 1972 match-up.


Katy Perry has the most-watched halftime show ever.

Before the ’90s, the Super Bowl typically featured marching bands at halftime. Now the midway performance is the most watched TV event of the entire year. With more than 120 million viewers tuning in to see Left Shark bobbing away and Katy Perry riding a shooting star, 2021 had it all.


Four teams have never gone to a Super Bowl.

The Detroit Lions, the Houston Texans, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and, yep, the Cleveland Browns have never played for the Lombardi Trophy.


The Steelers hold the record for most Super Bowl wins.

Out of the 32 NFL teams, the Pittsburgh franchise has won the most with six: 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2005, and 2008.


The Patriots have won only five.

They’re tied for second place with the 49ers and the Cowboys after appearing in 11 championship games: 1986, 1997, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2012, 2021, 2021, and 2021. This year they could move up into first with a win against Jared Goff and the Rams.


Tom Brady is also tied for the most Super Bowl rings.

He’s won five with the Pats, the same number as pass rusher Charles Haley, who earned his with both the 49ers and Cowboys during his 13-year pro career. Tom Brady could break this record too by winning Super Bowl LIII.


The Rams have only won one — but not as L.A.

Originally founded as the Cleveland Rams in 1936, the franchise moved to L.A. in 1946 and won two NFL Championships there before the AFL-NFL merger. As the “Super Bowl” didn’t officially start until 1969, the Rams’ only Super Bowl win thus far happened after they went to St. Louis. Kurt Warner led “The Greatest Show on Turf” to victory in 2000 against the Tennessee Titans. Now that they’re back in L.A., the team could finally bring a trophy home to Southern California.


A 30-second Super Bowl ad will cost more than $5 million in 2021.


Americans eat 1.3 billion chicken wings for the Super Bowl.


We also buy more than $1.3 billion worth of beer.


The Lombardi Trophy weighs 7 pounds.

Tiffany & Co. makes a new one out of sterling silver every year, and they’re a lot easier to lift than the awards given out by the MLB and NHL. Both the Commissioner’s Trophy and Stanley Cup weigh 30 pounds or more!


Tickets to the first Super Bowl cost just $12.

Today you’ll need between $2,500 and $3,000 to get in the door at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, according to Seatgeek. Seats close the 50-yard line shoot up quite a bit from there — one fan spent a whopping $180,685 on eight seats mid-field for this year’s game.


The longest anthem performance lasted 2 minutes, 36 seconds.

How long it takes to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” remains the most popular Super Bowl prop bet, and Alicia Keys definitely had people wishing they took the over when she delivered a slow, moving performance in 2013. Kelly Clarkson sped through the shortest in 1 minute, 34 seconds, per FanDuel, but we expect this year’s performer Gladys Knight to take a little more time than that.


“I’m going to Disney World!” started as $75,000 marketing stunt.

In 1987, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner offered both starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl XXI — Phil Simms and John Elway — $75,000 to say the now-iconic phrase if their team won the big game. When Simms and the Giants beat the Broncos 39-20, he started a new tradition. (These days the chosen spokespeople also usually get offered an actual trip to a Disney park as well.)
