What was the fastest ever Super Bowl touchdown?

The 2023 edition of the NFL’s showpiece finale was unlikely to let us down in the offensive stakes, and an early score was assured.

It took just 4 minutes 51 seconds for Jalen Hurts to run in the opening touchdown for the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII. The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t take long to reply in what was always expected to be a high scoring final. But how quick was the quickest?

Fastest ever touchdown in Super Bowl?

The fastest ever touchdown in Super Bowl history was scored by wide receiver Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears. He returned the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI, played on February 4, 2007, for a touchdown just 14 seconds into the game. This electrifying play set the tone for the Bears and gave them an early lead, although they eventually lost the game to the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 29-17.

Devin Hester is widely regarded as one of the greatest return specialists in NFL history, and his Super Bowl touchdown remains one of the most memorable plays in the history of the big game.
