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


Here's another article

Very interesting.

However, are the Texans really the 3 seed? Or should they have been the 1 seed? How many times has a team gone from the 1 seed to the 3 seed in the last week of the season?
