Super Bowl XX was held on January 26, 1986 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. It featured the Chicago Bears playing the New England Patriots. The New England Patriots were heavy underdogs, only getting in the play-offs as a wildcard team due to their poor record of 11-5, compared to Chicago's 15-1. Though the Patriots took an early lead, scoring a field goal only 1:19 into the game (the record for fastest score during a Super Bowl held until 2007), they were unable to keep their lead and the Bears defeated the Patriots, 46-10 setting several records, including most sacks (7), fewest rushing yards allowed (7) and largest margin of victory (36 points). This was Chicago's third championship win, having won the NFC champion ship game in 1946, the AFL/NFL championship in 1963 and Super Bowl XX in 1985.
