Super Bowl LVI: Here are all the Records that were set during the finals
Three big records were set during the the final game of Super Bowl LVI between Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals
WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!!! In one of the most nail-biting encounters, the Los Angeles Rams edged out the Cincinnati Bengals to win the Super Bowl LVI. During the initial part of the game, the Rams were a bit stiff and were contained by the opposition. However, they did not take much time to bounce back and wreaked havoc on The Bengals.
In the ending moments of the game, it was Rams’ Wide Receiver Cooper Kupp who made the winning touchdown for his team. The aforementioned touchdown was so late that the defending champion did not get enough time to make a comeback. The final nail in the coffin was Aaron Donald’s takedown, which made sure that the Rams are the new champions.
With the game’s conclusion, we also saw a lot of records being set during the game. So, let’s take a look at various records that were set at the Super Bowl LVI.
Sean McVay is the “youngest” coach to win the Super Bowl
During the entire coverage of the Super Bowl, we kept on hearing about the two coaches that are young and fierce. As soon as the Rams won the game, Sean McVay became the youngest coach to win the coveted trophy. At 36 years, 20 days old, McVay is the youngest man to win the Super Bowl LVI as a coach.
Previously, the record was held by Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. He was just six weeks shy of his 37th birthday when Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl XLIII.
Most number of Sacks in a Super Bowl
With 7 sacks of Joe Burrow, the Los Angeles Rams find themselves in an elite company and broke the record for the most number of sacks in a Super Bowl game. Aaron Donald had two sacks of Burrow while Von Miller recorded two sacks as well. Other players to record sacks during the game include Ernest Jones, A’Shawn Robinson, and Leonard Floyd.
Previously, the Chicago Bears and Steelers held the record for the most number of sacks in a Super Bowl game.
Fastest touchdown in the second half
Whoever saw the Super Bowl LVI, knows how fast that Tee Higgins touchdown was. Just 12 seconds into the second half, Joe Burrow passed the ball to Higgins for a touchdown. As soon as the touchdown happened, everyone began speculating if it was the fastest touchdown in the second half ever. However, it was soon revealed that the amazing touchdown from Higgins tied the record for the quickest second-half touchdown in Super Bowl history.
At Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle Seahawks’ Wide Receiver Percy Harvin also had a touchdown in the starting 12 seconds of the second half in the game against Broncos.
