Default NFL Playoffs: What Seeding History Really Says About Your Teamís Chances

very interesting read

It is not talked about much, but it really does not pay to be the No. 3 seed. Only the 2006 Colts and 1987 Redskins have ever won the Super Bowl from that seed. It is difficult as you would expect to have to beat the top two seeds on the road (Colts only beat No. 2 Baltimore), which is why it was such a disaster for Houston to slip to that spot this year.


Since 1990 only one #3 seed has won a SuperBowl
XLI
#3Seed Colts 29
#1Seed Bears 17
