A series of NFL records could be broken tomorrow depending on the outcome of the Super Bowl clash between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots.

AFP takes a look at how the history books could be rewritten:

The Patriots will tie the Pittsburgh Steelers as the most successful team in NFL history with a sixth Super Bowl win.

A win would also be New England Patriots’ 37th victory in a post-season game, overtaking the Pittsburgh’s total of 36 victories.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will equal the record for Super Bowl wins, joining George Halas and Curly Lambeau with six NFL championships.

Tom Brady will become the only player to win six Super Bowls, moving one clear of Hall of Famer Charles Haley, who won five titles.


Brady will also be the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, beating Peyton Manning’s mark. Manning was 39 when he led the Denver Broncos to victory over the Carolina Panthers in the 2016 Super Bowl.

Sean McVay, 33, will become the youngest head coach in history to win the Super Bowl if the Rams upset the Patriots. Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin held the previous mark at 36.

Quarterback Jared Goff, 24, will supplant Tom Brady as the second youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl with a victory. The youngest remains Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger (23).

Goff will become the first quarterback picked at No.1 in the draft to win a Super Bowl in three seasons.

No top draft pick will have won the Super Bowl quicker.
