<p>Super Bowl XX was an American football game between the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Chicago Bears and the American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 1985 season. The Bears defeated the Patriots by the score of 46–10. The game was played on January 26, 1986 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
To date, it is the most recent Super Bowl where both teams were making their Super Bowl debuts. The Bears entered the game after becoming the second team in NFL history to win 15 regular season games. With their then-revolutionary 46 defense, Chicago led the league in several defensive categories, outscored their opponents with a staggering margin of 456-198, and recording two postseason shutouts. The Patriots were considered a cinderella team during the 1985 season, and posted an 11-5 regular season record, but entered the playoffs as wild card because of tiebreakers. But defying the odds, New England posted three road playoff wins to advance to Super Bowl XX.
In their victory over the Patriots, the Bears set Super Bowl records for sacks (seven), fewest rushing yards allowed</p>
