September 13th, 2015 by Bullseye Event Group
If we’re talking about the crème le crème of Super Bowls, then Super Bowl XX would win the title up to this point. The Chicago Bears and the New England Patriots played Super Bowl XX on January 26, 1986 with a total of 73, 818 people in attendance. The final score was 46-10 with the Bears taking home the victory.
This was the first time both of these teams had attended any Super Bowl. In fact, the Bears came into the Super Bowl after an impressive season of winning 15 games that football season. During Super Bowl XX, the Bears set several records. The MVP of Super Bowl XX was Richard Dent, Bears Defensive, who ended up having 2 fumbles, a blocked pass, and 1.5 quarterback sacks.
Super Bowl XX had a total of 92. 57 million viewers! Believe it or not, but every single MVP of past Super Bowl games were honored at Super Bowl XX. The cost of a 30 second commercial was around $550,000, which was a tremendous increase from Super Bowl I. Up With People was the entertainment for Super Bowl XX and the theme was “Beat of the Future.”
