UPDATE 9:28 p.m.:
According to the CBS announcers, it’s been changed to a 108-yard return. Now it just ties the all-time record for a kickoff return but does not break it. It still breaks the Super Bowl record.
Original story below.
The Baltimore Ravens’ Jacoby Jones opened the second half of Super Bowl XLVII with an electrifying 109-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
That’s not just a Super Bowl record; it’s the longest kickoff-return touchdown ever — in any NFL game, regular or postseason.
After the extra point, Jones’ TD gave the Ravens a 28-6 lead over the 49ers.
Jones had a 56-yard touchdown reception in the first half that put the Ravens up 21-3. That makes him the first player in Super Bowl history to have an offensive touchdown and a touchdown return in the same game.
Jones tied the old NFL kickoff-return record of 108 yards on October 14 against the Cowboys.
