Longest Super Bowl Kick/Punt Return (108 Yards)

The Situation We may never come to an agreement on whether Joe Flacco was elite, but he was undeniably on fire early in Super Bowl XLVII. 

Flacco had three passing touchdowns in the first half, staking the Baltimore Ravens to a 21-6 lead over the San Francisco 49ers by the time Beyoncé and Destiny's Child did their halftime thing.

Baltimore got the ball to start the second half, which Jacoby Jones—who was also on the receiving end of one of Flacco's touchdown passes—immediately took 108 yards to the house.

And he made it look easy, practically running in a straight line and only needing to break one arm tackle.

It was obviously the biggest return of Jones' career, but it was also one of five kick-return touchdowns he had in his three-year run with Baltimore.

         The Aftermath A few minutes later, there was a partial power outage at the Superdome, halting play for more than half an hour. 

When the lights came back on, the 49ers staged quite the comeback, scoring 17 unanswered points.

With two minutes remaining in a 34-29 game, San Francisco got down to Baltimore's 5-yard line with a chance to take the lead.

However, Colin Kaepernick threw three consecutive incomplete passes, allowing the Ravens to hang on and win their second Super Bowl.

While the game-winning points didn't technically come from Jones' return, he did score Baltimore's final touchdown and finished the night with a staggering 290 all-purpose yards.
