Super Bowl First Points History

Field Goals, TD Runs, Passes, a Blocked Punt, a Kick Return and Safeties is the super-sized variety pack of NFL Championship initial scores. Rodney Dangerfield's when it come to SB MVP voting, though often opening and/or closing the scoring, kickers have booted home the first points during 23 of the first 51 title matches. There have also been 17 TD passes, six TD runs, three Safeties, plus the two special team scores. The latter five all paid big bucks and rocked bookmakers everywhere.

Green Bay twice (PTD & FG) as huge favorites, plus the New York Jets (RTDR) and Kansas City Chiefs (FG) who were massive underdogs, scored first while winning the first four NFL title games. In the more here and now, after the match winners scored first during six straight contests, Atlanta (RTD) posted the first points last year before losing 34-28 to New England in OT.

First Team To Score Result: Jake Elliott 25 YD Field Goal Philadelphia Eagles 3-0 (7:05)

First Points In Patriots and Eagles NFL Championships

As it pertains to the New England vs Philadelphia battle, we have lots of numbers on the Patriots but the Eagles information nest is pretty empty. Philadelphia allowed a Jim Plunket to Cliff Branch 2-yard TD pass and the Eagles were grounded during a 27-10 SB 15 loss to the Oakland Raiders in 1981. Back at the Big Dance in 2005, a Donavan McNabb 6-yard TD pass to TE L.J. Smith gave Philly their first and only lead as they dropped Super Bowl 39 versus the Patriots by a 24-12 final count.

Pre Tom Brady era (1986 & 1997) NEP scored first with a 36-yard FG but were crushed 46-10 by Chicago in SB 20. A Brett Favre to Andre Rison 54-yard rainbow TD pass put the Patriots in a hole during their 35-21 pounding by the Green Bay Packers in SB 31. With Brady at the helm, the Pats were scored on first (FG, PTD, RTD) but won SB 36, 39 & 51. The NY Giants scored first (FG, SFTY) and claimed SB 42 & 46 while Brady TD passes opened the scoring in SB 38 and 49 wins.

Defense Dictates: Both defenses can cause drives to stall early during Super Bowl 52

After ATL RB Devonta Freeman's 5-yard RTD opened the scoring - Atlanta's 2017 Super Bowl 51 meltdown snapped a run of six games where teams that scored first also won. Previously, from 2011 to 2016, the Packers (PTD) Giants (SFTY) Ravens (PTD) Seahawks (SFTY) Patriots (PTD) and Broncos (FG) all scored first and went on to claim the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Overall, teams that have posted the first Super Bowl Sunday score own a sparkling 34-17 SU money line record.

During the past quarter century, ground attacks have been M.I.A. as SB first scorers. Freeman's TD was the first time that a rushing score was the Super Bowl first points since Buffalo Bills RB Thurman Thomas pounded in a 2-yard rushing score during the SB 27 back in 1993. After that, over the next 25 years, field goals (11) pass touchdowns (10) safeties (2) and Devon Hester's dazzling SB 44 first play 92-yard kickoff return touchdown, have paid bettor's as the first Super Bowl scoring plays.

Unsung Hero's: Until they miss a chip-shot field goal - Nobody notices Place Kickers.

SB LII First Score Final Thoughts: Being as getting points on the scoreboard early is a priority, for both teams, first quarter field goals are common if scoring drives bog down. That changes later in games as teams trailing by two scores or more will be looking for touchdowns first and field goals second - if at all.
