The Super Bowl record for most points scored in a quarter is 35.

This was achieved by the Redskins in the second quarter of Super Bowl XXII. They led 35-10 at the half, making it the largest halftime lead in Super Bowl history.

Biggest Comeback in Super Bowl History

The biggest comeback in Super Bowl history is the Patriots’ 25-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

The Patriots trailed 28-3 late in the third quarter before successfully mounting five unanswered scoring drives throughout the final 20 minutes of regulation and overtime. They eventually won, 34-28.
