Fun Super Bowl Facts

With one week until the big game between the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, I thought it would be neat to punch out an article on some really interesting Super Bowl facts that some people may not or may know.

  • The Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings have had four trips to the Super Bowl and never won. In the Bills case, they went four straight times with two of the losses back-to-back against the Dallas Cowboys.
  • The San Francisco 49ers have been to the Super Bowl five times and have never lost. Their dominant years were in the 1980’s with Super Bowl victories in 81’, 84’, 88’, 89’, and 94’!
  • Although the Dallas Cowboys hold the record for the most trips to the Super Bowl

(8, 5-3), the Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowl’s at 6 (Their Super Bowl          record is 6-1).

  • There are still four teams that haven’t been to the Super Bowl (Browns, Lions, Jaguars, and Texans).
  • The Patriots played three of their six Super Bowl games in the Louisiana Superdome and the Indianapolis Colts have played all four of their Super Bowl’s in Miami , Florida .
  • Miami ’s football stadium was changed from the “Land Shark Stadium” to “Sun Life Stadium” as of January 18th because of a signed contract with Sun Life Financial. (Not Super Bowl related but I thought it was interesting).
  • The Green Bay Packers won the first two Super Bowl’s.

Well, there is a little information to increase your Super Bowl IQ. I hope that you learned a thing or two and that you enjoyed this article.
