As of January 20, 2011, the sports archive for the youngest winning quarterback in Super Bowl sports history goes to Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Roethlisberger was 23 years old when he led the Steelers over the Seattle Seahawks, 21-10 in Super Bowl XL in 2006.
The 21st Century also brought to us, Tom Brady, now the second youngest quarterback to win the Super Bowl, who in 2002, led the New England Patriots over the favored St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI at age 24.
Before this decade, we had to go back to 1982 for Super Bowl XVI and 1969 for Super Bowl III when Joe Montana of the San Francisco 49ers and Joe Namath of the New York Jets beat their opponents, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Colts, respectively, at the young age of 25 years and 227 days old. That’s right, they were the same age when they won their first Super Bowl!
