The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles battled for 60 minutes on Super Bowl Sunday, with the Eagles winning 41-33 for their first NFL Championship since 1960.
Hold your breath as we go through all 17 records the Patriots and Eagles broke in Super Bowl 52.
First, we start with Tom Brady. He's played in the most Super Bowls (eight) and thrown the most passes (357) and the most completions (235) for the most yards (2,576) and touchdowns (18). In a losing effort, he broke the single-game Super Bowl record for yards with 505. The Patriots also have played in more Super Bowls than any other franchise (10), fueled by Bill Belichick's record eight appearances as a coach. The Pats' 33 points are the most by a losing team.
After a breather, here's some more. The teams combined for 42 first downs passing and 1,151 total yards, with 874 through the air. The Pats racked up a staggering 613 total yards, buoyed by the aforementioned passing record by Brady. This all-offense spectacular featured only one punt, and the Pats are the first team to never punt on Super Bowl Sunday.
Last, but not least, both teams combined for FOUR missed point after attempts — two missed kicks and a pair of failed two-point conversions.
It was a crazy night in Minneapolis.
