Super Bowl scoring: What’s the point?

Super Bowl scoring: What’s the point?

Hyped by on February 1, 2013 Website:

In the 46-year history of the Super Bowl, there have been more games decided by 17 or more points (18 games) than by games decided by seven points or less (16 games). Will Sunday’s game be a close contest? For the record, nine of the last Super Bowls have been decided by 14 points or less, and four of the last five have been decided by six points or less.

Here’s a look at some other stats regarding the points scored in the Super Bowl (through the first quarter, at halftime, and final score):

* No team that has scored less than 14 points in the Super Bowl has won the game. Teams with 13 or fewer points are 0-17.

* Teams that score under 24 points are 13-40 (.245 winning percentage); teams that score 24 or more points in the game are 33-6 (.846 winning percentage).
