PFR’s Super Bowl Section

Posted by Neil on January 31, 2013

If you haven't seen the Super Bowl Section of our site yet, you should head over and check it out right now, because I'm sure you're going to refer to it often in the next few days. Here are some of the features you'll find once you get there:

And, in my opinion, maybe coolest of all is the Super Bowl Play Finder tool. It's similar to the Play Index Touchdown Finder Tool, but instead of being limited to just TDs, it can actually search through every play from scrimmage in Super Bowl history to find events matching your criteria. Want to know the longest non-scoring plays in the first 10 Super Bowls? We can find that. Or the longest 3rd-down passes that didn't result in a 1st down? We have that, too. Or maybe even the longest 4th-quarter runs against the 49ers in a SB? You get the picture. Play around with it for long enough, and you'll unearth all kinds of crazy Super Bowl records.

So go ahead and try the Super Bowl Section right now -- it's free, easy to use, and best of all, with it you'll be able to dominate anyone who challenges you in Super Bowl trivia this weekend.

    FYI....your entry for the 1969 Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs has a glaring omission....and is not listed anywhere on their page....

    Buck Buchanan, member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and one of four players in the Hall who played for Eddie Robinson at Grambling, who was also maybe the keynote signing by the AFL in a bidding war for players with the rival NFL. His signing was generally considered the straw that broke the camel's back and directly led to the merger of the AFL and NFL.

    Looks like Buchanan is also missing from your 1966 Kansas City Chiefs rosters....maybe others? Buchanan was the first player taken in the first AFL draft in 1963.

    I'm not sure I understand -- he's on their roster pages:

    He does not show up on the defensive statistics of the main team page at

    I suspect this is because tackles were not an official statistic at the time.
