From May 30 and every day until September 5… the start of the 2013 NFL season… Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ will publish “99 Stats Until Kickoff” a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.)
San Francisco’s placekicker David Akers had to feel a bit of redemption about his performance in Super Bowl XLVII against the Ravens. Akers was successful on three field goals in three attempts. This three-for-three performance came on the heels of a season where he was almost run out of town because of a less-than-stellar regular season.
With Baltimore’s kicker Justin Tucker also making two field goals, the two Super Bowl kickers last season tied a game record for most field goals made in a Super Bowl contest with five. The last time there were five field goals made in a Super Bowl was in the 1994 Super Bowl when the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Buffalo Bills.
