Super Bowl Records Set on Sunday

Super Bowl XLI certainly won't go down as the prettiest game in NFL history, but there were several records set in the game. Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri added to his already impressive postseason resume, and Bears return man Devin Hester dazzled everyone once again with his brilliance on special teams. Many Super Bowl marks were broken or tied on Sunday.
