Scoring first has good, bad history

MIAMI¬†GARDENS, Fla. –The Colts lead 3-0 in Super Bowl XLIV after Matt Stover capped a 12-play drive with a 38-yard field goal.

That’s good news for the Colts. As personnel guru Gil Brandt pointed out during his live Super Bowl XLIV chat, teams that score first are 28-15 all-time in Super Bowls. But it’s not all good news. The teams scoring first have also lost five of the last eight Super Bowls.
