1. In 1989, the San Francisco 49ers slaughtered the Denver Broncos by 45 points in Super Bowl XXIV. The final score? Niners 55, Broncs 10. Told you these scores were Halloween appropriate.
2. The 1985 Chicago Bears (ya know, with that defense and that dance…oh, and a lot of Ditka) scored 46 points to the New England Patriots’ 10 in Super Bowl XX. That’s a 36 point difference, folks.
3. This one might still be a little fresh. Sorry Denver fans. In 2013’s Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8, which works out to 35 points.
(3*) 4. In 1992, the Dallas Cowboys also won a Super Bowl by 35 points. They scored 52 points to the Buffalo Bills’ 17 in Super Bowl XXVII.
5. The Washington Redskins handed the Denver Broncos a 32 point loss in 1987’s Super Bowl XXII. The final score was ‘Skins 42, Broncs 10.
6. The Los Angeles Raiders beat the Washington Redskins by 29 points during Super Bowl XVIII in 1982. The Raiders scored 38. The ‘Skins had just 9.
7. The 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (how far they’ve fallen) beat the Oakland Raiders (speaking of falling…) by 27 points in Super Bowl XXXVII. The final score was 48-21, Bucs.
(7*) 8. The year 2000’s Super Bowl XXXV was also won by 27 points, with the Baltimore Ravens scoring 34 points to the New York Giants’ mere 7.
9. Super Bowl I, which took place in 1966, was such a blowout it’s a wonder they continued it (kidding, kidding). But, the Green Bay Packers did win by 25 points, outscoring the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10.
10. The 1994 San Francisco 49ers won Super Bowl XXIX by 23 points, scoring 49 points to the San Diego Chargers’ 29.S
