Warner Bros. Kurt Warner is the first Super Bowl quarterback to have thrown a 400-yard game. He did so against your New York Giants on February 3, 2005. The game was played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The Cardinals lost that day's match 31-27 in overtime.
The previous year's Super Bowl featured John Elway of the Denver Broncos throwing for four touchdowns and 413 yards in his team's 46-33 victory over the Carolina Panthers. That game was played on January 20, 1995 at Pasadena's Rose Bowl. It was the second highest scoring Super Bowl ever after the 1948 game which ended in a 9-3 vote between the Philadelphia Eagles' Chuck Bednarik and the Chicago Bears' Benny Friedman.
The most recent Super Bowl featuring a quarterback going over 400 yards was last month's game between New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. The game was won by the Patriots 34-28 in double overtime. Brady finished with 409 yards while Wilson had 338. Both quarterbacks had multiple touchdown passes as well as multiple interceptions.
Brady has now led the Patriots to six Super Bowl appearances and three victories. This is his third time winning the trophy.
Kurt Warner's 377 yards passing for the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII were the second-most ever thrown in a Super Bowl game at the time, trailing only his own record established in Super Bowl XXXIV. However, Tom Brady has since broken this record with 417 yards passing in Super Bowl LI.
Warner also had 10 completions in Super Bowl XLIII, which is a Super Bowl record. He also has the record for most attempts with 40. Barry Sanders had 39 attempts in his 1998 NFC Championship Game against the Chicago Bears and Matt Hasselbeck had 37 in his 2005 Divisional Round game against the Seattle Seahawks. Both of those games ended in victories for their teams.
The longest pass play in NFL history is 92 yards from Dan Pastorini to Charlie Joiner in a 1979 NFC Wild Card Game game between the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings. The point after touchdown pass was caught by former Falcon Terry McDaniel who returned it 99 yards for a winning score.
Super Bowl MVPs: Kurt Warner (Cardinals), 100; Brett Favre (Giants), 77; Peyton Manning (Colts), 75; John Elway (7ers), 70; Terry Bradshaw (Browns), 60; Randall Cunningham (Redskins), 58; Marino, 55.
Bradshaw, Montana, and Elway are the only three Super Bowl quarterbacks with multiple 300-yard performances. Brady completed 262 of his passes against the Rams. Brady has thrown 48 passes without an interception in the Super Bowl twice, three more than Warner did against Tennessee in 2000.
Brady has also gone over 300 yards twice, both times against good pass defenses in the Patriots' two AFC Championship Game victories. He had four touchdowns and no interceptions against Denver and won his second championship ring as a starter. Warner had three TDs and no picks in his first postseason game, but he also lost.
Drew Brees is the only other quarterback to score 30 or more points. He did it twice, against Carolina (2010) and Seattle (2012).
Tom Brady is the only quarterback with multiple 300-yard games in the Super Bowl era. His brother Drew is the only other quarterback with at least one such game (he had two in New Orleans). The last quarterback to do it repeatedly was Terry Bradshaw in 1975 and '76. He had five straight 300-yard games during the season and finished with 3,584 passing yards, then another six scores in the Super Bowl wins over Washington and Oakland. Terry Bradshaw is the only quarterback to win the Super Bowl while having multiple 300-yard games. He was also the only quarterback until 2015 not to lose a playoff game when throwing for at least 300 yards.
Ken O'Brien is the first quarterback in history to post a perfect passer rating in a 400-yard game. Don Strock is the first quarterback to pass for 400 yards in a game in which he did not play.
During Super Bowl XLIII, Ken O'Brien of the Arizona Cardinals threw four touchdowns and no interceptions while completing 22 of his 30 passes for 400 yards. This is currently the highest single-game total ever recorded by a quarterback in a Super Bowl game. The previous record was held by Tom Brady with 375 yards passing in Super Bowl XLII.
O'Brien's performance led the Cardinals to a 41-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He became the first rookie quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl game. O'Brien's brother Brian also played in this game and completed 5 of 9 passes for 62 yards without any touchdowns or interceptions.
The only other players to post such numbers in a Super Bowl are Bart Starr (455 yards in 1967 Super Bowl) and Terry Bradshaw (477 yards in 1975 Super Bowl).
Pro Bowl quarterback Jim McMahon led the team's passing offense with 2,392 yards and 15 touchdowns while also running for 252 yards and three scores. Running back Walter Payton, the NFL's all-time top rusher at the time with 14,860 yards, ran for 1,551 yards. Proper therapy improves eyesight in most children with lazy eye within weeks to months. Treatment might take anywhere from six months to two years. It is critical that your kid be followed for the return of lazy eye, which can occur in up to 25% of children with the syndrome.
On January 15, 1978, the game was held in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. The Super Bowl was played in a dome for the first time, and it was also the first time the game was played in prime time in the Eastern United States.
Montana became the first player in Super Bowl history to pass and dash for a touchdown in the same game in Super Bowl XVI (Ken Anderson would do it later in the game). Montana ran for 59 yards (and a score) in Super Bowl XIX, the most by a quarterback in a Super Bowl at the time.
In addition to running for touchdowns, Montana also threw two interceptions in the game. John Elway is the only other quarterback in Super Bowl history to throw two interceptions in a game; he did so in Super Bowl XVII.
Although Montana lost that game, he still holds many record numbers, including being the first player in NFL history to pass for over 3,000 yards while also rushing for over 1,000 yards. He also ranks second all-time in Super Bowl history in both passing yards (3,690) and total yards from scrimmage (4,920).
During his MVP season in 1995, Montana passed for 4,917 yards (no other quarterback has ever thrown for more than 3,900 yards in a season) and ran for another 1,077 yards (only Eric Dickerson with 2,095 yards from scrimmage in 1987 has more career yards from scrimmage than Montana's 5,082).
After retiring as a player, Montana returned to the Broncos as their head coach for one season before moving on to become the 49ers' coach.
