Despite losing to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, the San Francisco 49ers played a hand in setting multiple Super Bowl records on Sunday night.

Colin Kaepernick etched his name into Super Bowl history on Sunday night with his 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Kaepernick's touchdown run was the longest in Super Bowl history by a quarterback.

San Francisco tied a Super Bowl record, by having two players with over 100 receiving yards in the game. Michael Crabtree had five receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown, while San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis caught six passes for 104 yards.

Fueled by Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the Ravens and 49ers combined to set the Super Bowl record for most kick return yards in Super Bowl history, with 312. LaMichael James added 75 yards on three returns, while Ted Ginn Jr. added 31 yards on one return.

Jones accounted for the other 206 yards, which includes his touchdown return.

Jones set multiple records on Sunday night. Jones' 108-yard return is the longest kick return in Super Bowl history, and his 290 combined yards also constitute a Super Bowl record.

Unfortunately for the 49ers, San Francisco's perfect record in Super Bowl history is gone. San Francisco dropped to 5-1 all-time in Super Bowl history with the 34-31 loss in Super Bowl XLVII.
