The Super Bowl is a tradition in American culture that takes place on the first Sunday of February. Super Bowl 49 will feature the Seattle Seahawks competing against the New England Patriots. If you look at some of the past Super Bowl results, you’ll notice some trends that are hard to ignore.
Dating back to 1984, there has only been 3 Super Bowls in which one of the teams have only scored single digits. Interestingly enough, the Broncos only scored 8 points against the Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. Since 1984, this occurrence has only happened two other times. In 1984, the Super Bowl champion L.A. Rams held the Redskins to only 9 points. The Ravens defeated the Giants in Super Bowl 35 by only allowing the Giants to score 7 points.
Single digit point totals for a team in the Super Bowl is extremely rare. In the modern age of football, this occurrence is rare however if you look before 1984, you’ll notice that many Super Bowls features teams that scored in the single digits. In fact, if you look at the first 9 Super Bowls ever played, you’ll notice that 6 of the 9 losers scored in the single digits. With the high powered offences of both the Seahawks and Patriots, it would be extremely unlikely to see either one of these teams keep their point totals in the single digit range.
