If the Los Angeles Rams were hoping to make NFL history on Sunday night, it probably didn't include this stat. With the offense struggling mightily against the New England Patriots, the Rams became the first team in Super Bowl history to punt on their first seven possessions of the game.

In fact, they took it a step further with a punt on each of their first eight possessions, two clear of the previous Super Bowl record.

But there is some good news! On Johnny Hekker's eighth punt of the game, he also set a record. He booted it 65 yards, which is a Super Bowl record by 1 yard, previously held by Patriots punter Ryan Allen.

Coincidentally, Hekker and Allen both went to Oregon State, squaring off in a competition for the starting job.

"Wasn't much of a controversy," Allen told USA TODAY Sports. "Long story short, as we were coming to Oregon State, he was told that we had a competition for the punter position, and I was told the same. … We ended up becoming good buddies, and we still are today. There was never any spite or hate coming from either end. We were pretty close throughout our entire time there together."
