What is the lowest-scoring Super Bowl? List of fewest points scored in NFL history

first_imgMORE SUPER BOWL HISTORYMost wins by franchise | Most wins by playerSuper Bowl 53, which pitted the NFL’s second- and fourth-highest scoring offenses head-to-head, was not supposed to join the ranks of the lowest-scoring Super Bowls. Five of the last six Super Bowls had soared past their projected game totals, and sportsbooks adjusted the 2019 over/under line accordingly at 56.5, this capping an NFL season in which scoring overall was at an all-time high.Instead, the teams entered the fourth quarter tied 3-3. In the end, Los Angeles managed 260 yards of total offense and three measly points. New England scored the first touchdown with seven minutes to go in the fourth quarter. And that was the recipe for the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history.Lowest point totals in Super Bowl historySuper BowlCombined pointsResult5316New England Patriots 13, Los Angeles Rams 3721Miami Dolphins 14, Washington Redskins 7922Pittsburgh Steelers 16, Minnesota Vikings 6323New York Jets 16, Baltimore Colts 7627Dallas Cowboys 24, Miami Dolphins 3529Baltimore Colts 16, Dallas Cowboys 13 In the age of high-flying offenses and betting the over, low-scoring Super Bowls have become a thing of the past.Six of the first 10 Super Bowls failed to top 30 combined points, but it hadn’t happened again in NFL history until the Patriots and Rams treated the nation to a 13-3 snoozefest in Super Bowl 53, now the lowest-scoring Super Bowl all time. Super Bowl 7 between the Dolphins and Redskins held that distinction for 46 years.last_img read more
