The previous 51 Super Bowls are full of fun facts, amazing performances and assorted oddities.

Could a team ever return four interceptions for a touchdown in a single game?

Could a team win while committing eight turnovers? Here are eight records that may never be topped -- or even matched -- in the biggest NFL game of the century every season.

Bears Hold Patriots To Seven Rushing Yards

AP Super Bowl XX: Bears-Patriots

The Bears dominated the 1985 season from start to finish and were at their best in the playoffs, shutting out the Giants (21-0) and Rams (24-0) en route to a 46-10 rout of the Patriots at the Superdome. New England was limited to 123 total yards, second fewest in a Super Bowl. More significantly the Patriots gained a record-low seven yards rushing in Super Bowl XX. And Raymond Berry's team managed that total on 11 carries, an astounding 0.64 yards per attempt.

Redskins Score 35 In A Quarter

AP Super Bowl XXII: Redskins-Broncos

Joe Gibbs' Redskins spotted the Broncos a 10-0 first-quarter lead before scoring 42 unanswered points in a 42-10 victory. Doug Williams threw for 340 yards and four scores (one interception), running back Timmy Smith ran for a Super Bowl record 204 yards and scores as Washington rolled up a Super Bowl record 602 total yards. But the most memorable part was the second quarter, when the Redskins scored 35 points and rolled up 356 total yards.

Pick-Six Hat Trick

Three interceptions by Raiders linebacker Rod Martin in the team's Super Bowl XV win over the Eagles is a great feat. But will we ever see a performance by an opportunistic defense like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII? We may see a quarterback throw five interceptions in this game, as was the case for Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon. But led by safety Dwight Smith (two) and linebacker Derrick Brooks (one), the Buccaneers returned three of those interceptions for touchdowns in a 48-21 drubbing of the Silver and Black.

Bills' Four Straight Super Bowl Appearances

We're in a day and age of free agency and ever-changing rosters, so getting back to the Super Bowl in consecutive seasons hasn't been easy. In fact, since the 2003 and 2004 Patriots repeated as champions, just two teams -- the Seahawks (XLVIII, XLIX) and the Patriots (LI, LII) -- have made back-to-back appearances. That's why it's amazing to consider that while they never walked away with an NFL championship, the Buffalo Bills made an unprecedented four straight Super Bowl appearances from 1990-93 (XXV, XXVI, XXVII and XXVIII). That final season ('93) was the start of free agency as we pretty well know it these days.

Phil Simms' 88 Percent

Yes, it's a quarterback-driven league these days and we've seen astounding passing numbers in the past decade from Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees. But it will be hard to top what happened in Super Bowl XXI, when Giants quarterback Phil Simms completed a Super Bowl-record 88.0 percent of his throws (22-of-25) for 268 yards and three touchdowns in his team's 39-20 win over the Broncos. In the second half alone, Simms was 10-of-10 for 165 yards and two touchdowns (although there was that fortuitous bounce off tight end Mark Bavaro to wide receiver Phil McConkey for a touchdown). The mark is based on a minimum of 20 pass attempts.

John Riggins' Workload

Once upon a time, in a game far, far away, this was a league where the running backs were household names. The running attacks have taken a back seat in recent years, which makes some yearn for the Washington Redskins, the "Hogs" and Hall of Fame running back John Riggins, who totaled 166 yards rushing on a Super-Bowl-record 38 carries in his team's 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. Since Riggins' workhorse performance in Super Bowl XVII, 23 of the 33 champions ran the ball fewer than 38 times as a team. And none of the 50 losing teams in the Big Game has ever totaled at least 38 rushing attempts.

Seven Turnovers By The Winning Team

AP Super Bowl V: Colts-Cowboys

It's a different game these days in terms of physical play and hanging onto the football is stressed more than ever. Hence, it's hard to imagine that the Baltimore Colts committed seven turnovers and still won Super Bowl V, the most ever by a winning team. Granted the Dallas Cowboys turned over the ball four times on their own. It's also worth noting that of the other 49 Super Bowl champions, the most turnovers committed by any winning team is three, by the Steelers in both XIII and XIV and the Indianapolis Colts in XLI.

Bills Commit Nine Turnovers Against Dallas

AP Super Bowl XXVII: Cowboys-Bills

Back to the Bills ... and turnovers. Of those aforementioned four setbacks, the worst loss was arguably a 52-17 drubbing at the hands of Jimmy Johnson's Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVII. That afternoon in Pasadena, Marv Levy's team turned a 7-0 first-quarter lead into a 28-10 halftime deficit. Starting quarterback Jim Kelly was knocked out of the game and Dallas' defensive unit scored as many touchdowns as Buffalo's offense (two).
