The youngest quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl
GLENDALE, Ariz. (BVM) – Super Bowl LVII has created more than enough storylines in the lead up to the game with the many connections between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. With a sibling matchup between Jason and Travis Kelce, and the ties between former Eagles and current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, the game offers some historic perspectives.
With 56 Super Bowls played out before them, starting quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts have a chance at creating history on their own. The two will tie a previous record when they touch the field on Feb. 12, with their combined age of 27 and 24 making them one of the youngest duos to compete in Super Bowl history. Following Super Bowl XXXI in 1996, both Brett Favre, 27, and Drew Bledsoe, 24, had held sole possession of the record up until the two quarterbacks match up.
Hurts, at the age of 24, however, could become one of the youngest quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl if he were to pull off a victory during the team’s upcoming matchup. A win would mean that Hurts would slide into the top five all time, becoming the fourth youngest quarterback to ever do so.
With his upcoming opponent topping the list in recent years, here’s a look at the 10 youngest quarterbacks to ever win a Super Bowl as Hurts looks to add his name to the list.
