Super Bowl XLVII, a night of records

jacobyhair

Super Bowl XLVII won’t just be remembered as the Baltimore Ravens’ second Lombardi Trophy. It will also have a place in the record books.

There were seven records that were broken or tied on Super Bowl Sunday with Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones having four of them. Jones, with his 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, broke three of them with that single play. He now holds the record for the following : Longest Play,  Longest Kickoff Return and Longest Kickoff Return for Touchdown.

As if the 108-yard kickoff return was not enough, Jones also added to his resume the Most Combined Yards in a Super Bowl with 290.

Jones, who is in his first year with the Ravens after spending the previous years with Houston, truly shined this season for Baltimore. Brought on at the beginning of the season, Jones was given the opportunity to shine with kick return duties.  Jones returned a kickoff for 108 yards for a touchdown in a win against Dallas and returned a kickoff for 105 yards in the Ravens’ 55-20 win over Oakland. He also returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown against the Steelers marking the first time  the Ravens returned a punt for a touchdown against Pittsburgh.

Jacoby also earned Pro Bowl honors for the season.

The game between the Ravens and 49ers also broke three more Super Bowl records: Most Kickoff Return Yards, Both Teams – 312 (Baltimore 206, San Francisco 106), Longest Touchdown Run, Quarterback – 15 yards, Colin Kaepernick and Longest Time Of Game4:14.

    Culliver gets credited with the safety? That’s about the best thing he’ll be able to point to when he tries to explain his role in SB XLVII.
