Superbowl Trivia Questions

If you are like me, the Superbowl is one of your favorite sports events of the year. It's a time when families gather, stories are shared, love poems are read….wait those are weddings. Let me correct myself: it's a time to stock up on beer, make sure the new HDTV works, invite all your friends (and remind them to bring an extra 24 pack each as the unofficial price of admission), and put your game face on. But, even if you've watched a lot of Superbowls, it's still fair to ask: how much do you know about the past history of the game and 2011's Superbowl XLV. Well, here at The Best Sports Blog, we weren't sure how much we knew, so we came up with a list of Superbowl Trivia Questions. Consider it your very own Superbowl Quiz to test your knowledge of Superbowl Trivia Facts. If you can answer a lot of the questions right (we set 12/15 as the expert fans' benchmark) then you're a Superbowl rock star! If not, then educate yourself (the answers are at the bottom of the article) and no one will know you weren't a Superbowl fan expert to begin with. Enjoy!

The Answers:

How did you do on your Superbowl Trivia Quiz?

  1. Tom Brady. He has won three in the last decade and a half (2002, 2004, 2005) but has not won one since 2005 and has not won a post-season game since the 2007 AFC Championship. Of course, he was the 2010 NFL MVP so don't write him off just yet.
  2. Buffalo Bills. Fans in the city will tell you they still haven't recovered. It's understandable because their team certainly hasn't.
  3. Drew Brees. It was a no-brainer; he was absolutely spectacular.
  4. Jim Kelly. He lost four straight with the Bills. Sadly, the margins of defeat got worse each year.
  5. Georgia. The Bulldogs produced three different Superbowl MVPs.
  6. Rich Gannon. In fairness, he was playing against his former coach, offensive guru Jon Gruden, but his performance was so poor it may have cost him a shot at the NFL Hall of Fame.
  7. Chuck Noll. He won four with the Iron Curtain Steelers. Bill Belichick came within two minutes and a once in a lifetime catch by David Tyree of equaling that record.
  8. Aaron Rodgers. In fact, his 98.7 mark is the best in the NFL over that span.
  9. Rashard Mendenhall. The only reason Illinois made it to the Rose Bowl that year. I repeat: the only.
  10. Maurkice Pouncey. Unless, of course, something changes before the game. You never know.
  11. Aaron Rodgers. He said it spared him a concussion on Julius Pepper's savage 4th quarter hit in the NFC Championship Game.
  12. Ben Roethlisberger. He needs to stay out of Georgia clubs if he doesn't want to end up on the other side of the Bay.
  13. Troy Polamalu. I only wrote "could be" as a courtesy to other underrated NFL stars. He is the most underrated contributor in the league; the Steelers defense is simply not the same without him.
  14. Charles Woodson. Another underrated gem.
