The 'You crossed the line' quiz


Focus On Sport/Getty Images

We are still 11 long days away from the New England Patriots taking on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, and fans looking for their weekly football fix are left on their own to sort through articles about the weather, presidential prop bets or wild speculation about Bill Belichick's coaching future. But if those articles aren't your particular cup of tea, we have our own wall-to-wall Super Bowl coverage for you to parse through as you wait (im)patiently for the big game:

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. The list of players to score the first touchdown in every Super Bowl is a mixture of legends, cult heroes and players you never heard from again. So, with that in mind, how many players from that list do you think you can you name in six minutes?

Good luck!

CLUE: SUPER BOWL / TEAM / POSITION

Note: For this quiz, we are looking for the person who carried the ball into the end zone. So on a passing touchdown from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski, Gronkowski would be the answer. Tom Brady would only be an answer if he ran the ball in himself. (HINT: Neither Brady nor Gronk are correct answers in this quiz.)
