Steve McNair, on the other hand, has the most running yards in a single Super Bowl game. In Super Bowl XXXIV, he carried for 64 yards against the St. Louis Rams. This postseason, Mahomes has rushed for precisely 53 yards in each of his playoff games. That's one yard less than the next-closest player - McNair - who had 60 yards in his first championship game.
In fact, only two players have ever reached the end zone on rushes in more than one Super Bowl game: Jim Brown and Marshall Faulk. And both did it multiple times. The last time a runner broke off a run into the end zone was last year's Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. It was James White who made it happen, scoring on a 58-yard dash up the middle with 1:58 left in the fourth quarter to give the Patriots a 28-22 lead.
Before that, it was Faulk who did it in 2001 when he ran for 56 yards against Indianapolis. That's the longest run from scrimmage in a Super Bowl history!
Here are the other runners with two touchdown runs in a single Super Bowl game: Chris Warrener (1997), Ernie Davis (1953), Frank Gifford (1929), Red Grange (1920), Billy Hudson (1897), and Sam Baker (1895).
Washington Redskins' John Riggins (Super Bowl XVII) Riggins no longer holds the record for most running yards in a Super Bowl game, but he does hold the record for most carries in a game on the big stage (38) and was instrumental in bringing Washington's first Super Bowl trophy.
A running back can get extra yardage by catching passes out of the backfield. In fact, three Redskins received votes as finalists for the 1969 NFL MVP award: Riggins, who had 1,074 total yards; George Allen, who had 995; and Don Warren, who had 651. All three players were in their second season with the team and all three finished among the top 10 in the league in rushing.
Allen was the leading rusher in both of Washington's playoff games against New York and won the title of "Mr. Perfect" during the '69 season. He also threw six touchdown passes and was selected to play in the 1970 Pro Bowl. Warren, who played only five games due to injury, still managed to catch 51 passes for 589 yards and four touchdowns.
Riggins, who played in all 15 games that season, finished with 99 catches for 1,176 yards and nine touchdowns. He also returned kicks and added two more scores on special teams.
John Riggins was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round (sixth overall) of the 1967 NFL Draft.
Brady also has the most career passing yards in Super Bowl history (2,838) and the most passing yards in a single game (505) in New England's loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII. It shattered his personal Super Bowl LII record of 466 yards set against the Falcons.
He is the first player to have three consecutive games with at least four touchdown passes during a season. The last QB to do so was Tom Brady in 2007 when he had four games with at least four touchdowns passes.
Brady has two seasons with at least 30 touchdown passes (2017, 2018). He has never had more than 29 during a single season.
He is the first player with a perfect passer rating (158.3) while leading his team to a victory in the Super Bowl. The last QB to do so was Joe Montana in 1990 when he had a passer rating of 158.6 in San Francisco's 27-17 win over Buffalo for the NFC championship.
Montana went on to lead the 49ers to their third Super Bowl victory.
Brady is the first player with three straight 100-plus rating games during a season. He has five such games this year.
He is the first player with three straight 400-yard games during a season.
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 scoring passes in the Super Bowl: one that went for six yards and another that was intercepted by John Lynch as time expired in the first half. The latter pass broke a 20-20 tie between the teams after three quarters of play.
However, the most memorable part of his performance came late in the fourth quarter when he led the team on a last-minute drive that resulted in a 49-yard field goal by Jeff Gartner with less than 10 seconds remaining to give his team a 16-14 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. After the game, Montana gave credit to coach Joe Gibbs for giving him the opportunity to play in his first Super Bowl.
He said: "I'm just glad I could be a part of something so great. This has been an incredible week for our football team and myself included. I want to thank my teammates for their support during this process. I want to thank Coach Gibbs for giving me this chance. And I want to thank you for being a part of this one great NFL season."
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 start. Kurt Warner is the first Super Bowl quarterback to have thrown a 400-yard game.
During Super Bowl XLII, Ken O'Brien of the New England Patriots and Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals went head to head as they battled it out for the championship. O'Brien ended up throwing four touchdowns compared to three interceptions while posting a flawless 158.3 rating. In the process, he became just the second quarterback in NFL history (Strock being the first) to post a perfect passer rating during a Super Bowl game. The other team on that field was the winner of the 2009 NFL season - the Arizona Cardinals.
Here is how the game played out: New England Patriots vs. Arizona Cardinals - Super Bowl XLII Boston, Massachusetts USA. January 21, 2008.
The Patriots took control of the ball first with O'Brien hitting Terry Glenn with an 18-yard touchdown pass. On their next possession, Tom Brady found David Patten in the end zone again for a 6-0 lead. At the half, New England dominated the game 42-21 and had 422 total yards against O'Brien's 208.
