Ed Reed made the ninth interception of his postseason career, tying the NFL record shared by Charlie Waters, Bill Simpson and Ronnie Lott.

Super Bowl XLVII was only the second league championship game in NFL history (including the pre-Super Bowl era) in which each team scored 30-or-more points. Pittsburgh defeated Dallas, 35-31, in Super Bowl XIII in January 1979.
