Over the next week and a half I'll be charting out the progressions of some of the Super Bowl Records. Why? Because we all want to learn.
If you've been paying attention, then you'll notice that the Carries record mirrors the rushing yards record closely. Jim Taylor led the way in Super Bowl I with 17 carries. He was tied up the next year by fellow Packer Ben Wilson in Super Bowl II. Matt Snell again blew the record away when he had 30 carries in Super Bowl III. This record like his yard record was knocked out by Larry Csonka in Super Bowl XIII. Franco took both the next year in the Steelers Super Bowl IX win. Finally John Riggins set a tough to pass standard when he rushed the ball 38 times in the Redskins pounding of the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII.
