On February 1, 2009 in Super Bowl #43, the Pittsburgh Steelers faced Arizona in the Cardinals first Super Bowl appearance. The opposing QBs that day were 37-year-old Kurt Warner for the Cards and 26-year-old Ben Roethlisberger for the Steelers. At that time, it was the first time that the age difference of the starting QBs in the Super Bowl was more than 10 years.
This year's Super Bowl will be the second time... and it will also break the record for the largest age difference in starting quarterbacks in the game's history.
Denver's Peyton Manning will be 37 (and 315 days) old when the Broncos take the field in Super Bowl #48. His counterpart, Russell Wilson, will take the field for the Seahawks at the age of 25 years and 65 days. That's an age difference of 12 years and 250 days
