Top Ten Biggest Blowouts in NFL Super Bowl History
Which Super Bowls Have Had the Most Lopsided Scores?
2014 NFL Season
In light of last night’s TNF blowout (still deciding if Atlanta is that good or if Tampa Bay is just that bad) and of the most recent Super Bowl, which still has Broncos fans reeling, I thought we’d take a look at the top ten Super Bowl blowouts in NFL history. This is kind of a fun one, at least if your team is on the winning side.

1. In 1989, the San Francisco 49ers squashed the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV by a margin of 45 points. Final score? 55-10. On the bright side, that’s still more than the Broncs managed in XXLVIII. Just sayin’.
2. The storied 1985 Chicago Bears beat the New England Patriots by 36 points in Super Bowl XX. Da Bears Super Bowl-shuffled their way to a 46-10 victory.
3. In 1992, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Buffalo Bills by 35 points. The final score of Super Bowl XXVII was 52-17. Good D there, Bills.
(3*) 4. Tied for the number 3 spot is 2014’s Super Bowl XXLVIII, in which the Seattle Seahawks clobbered Peyton Manning’s offense, wining by 35 points. In case the final score isn’t still etched in your mind, it was 43-8.
5. Super Bowl XXII, which took place in 1987, saw the Washington Redskins beat the Denver Broncos (if only there was a prize for being good at losing Super Bowls) by 32 points. The finally score was 42-10.
6. The Los Angeles Raiders took on the Washington Redskins in 1983’s Super Bowl XVIII. The Raiders ended up winning by 29 points, 38-9.
7. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders by 27 points in Super Bowl XXXVII in 1992. The final score was 48-21.
(7*) 8. In 2000, the Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV also by 27 points. The Ravens beat the New York Giants 34-7.
9. In Super Bowl I, year 1966, the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs by 25 points. The Pack won 35-10.
10. In 1994, the San Francisco 49ers and the Dan Diego Chargers battled in Super Bowl XXIX. The Niners ended up winning by 23 points, 49-26.
