They won because that's what they played for all season long as well as all the other teams in the NFL. Each season that begins, all 32 teams are hungry to first make it to the postseason and then to the Super Bowl. Once they get to the Super Bowl they play it to win.
New York Giants and New England Patriots Super Bowl XLI 2/3/08
Deion Sanders played on two Super Bowl Teams: the 49ers in 1994 and the Cowboys the following season.
Through the 2010 National Football League season, the Houston Texans are one of four teams that have never played in a Super Bowl. The three other teams are the Cleveland Browns, the Detroit Lions and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 in Super Bowl IV, played on January 11, 1970. (This was the last Super Bowl played between teams of the AFL and NFL, as the leagues merged for the 1970 NFL season.)
The teams have never played each other in a Super Bowl.
Regular season schedules are not released or created until after the Super bowl has been played.
As of the start of the 2007 season, the last Super Bowl played was Super Bowl XLI. In Super Bowl XLI, the Indianapolis Colts defeated the Chicago Bears 29-17.
Yes, it happened once before. In 1977 The denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys met in the last week of the season. They met a few weeks later in Super Bowl XII. Dallas won both games.
4 teams. The only team that has played during EVERY Super Bowl season, yet has NEVER been to a Super Bowl , is the Detroit Lions. Other current teams that have never been are: the Cleveland Browns who where out of football for a few Super Bowl years, then came back. The newer franchises that have never been are the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans. The Rams have been to a Super Bowl , when they were the L.A. Rams .
Miami beat Washington in the super bowl to go the entire season undefeated and the same two played again 10 years later. Pittsburgh and Dallas played in super bowl Xiii and at least one other time. I don't think the same two teams ever played 2 years in a row. If the Steelers and Packers play again this time I think it would be a first.
As of the 2011-2012 season, there are 4 teams of the 32 teams in the NFL that have not played in a Super Bowl: Cleveland Browns Detroit Lions Houston Texans Jacksonville Jaguars
New York Giants New England Patriots
Not sure if you mean what teams were in the first Super Bowl (played in 1967) or Superbowl II, the championship game for the 1967 season. So I will give you both. The Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in Superbowl I. The game was played January 15, 1967. For the 1967 season (Super Bowl II), the Green Bay Packers defeated the Oakland Raiders 33 - 14.
No. But would it be cool if they did?
The two teams have never played each other in a Super Bowl.
It was only two teams and one of them was the Dallas Cowboys and I don't know the other one.
There are sixteen games in the NFL season. Teams face their divisional opponents twice during the regular season. The other eight weeks of the season, teams will play teams in other divisions and conferences.
91 Super Bowl was Bills vs. Giants 91 Season was Bills vs. Redskins Bills vs. Redskins
Well, that's impossible actually... because the pro bowl teams are made of of players from many different NFL teams. The best individual players from the AFC teams and the NFC teams are voted in, and they comprise an AFC and an NFC team which play in that Pro Bowl only. In the Super Bowl, the actual NFL teams who played the games throughout the season and beat the other playoff teams play each other. For instance, in any given year, one individual player from the Denver Broncos might play in the Pro Bowl because he was voted the best in his division. However, even though he plays in the Pro Bowl with other non-Broncos players, his team (the Broncos) won't go to the Super Bowl unless they beat all the other teams throughout the season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys played against each other three times. The Steelers won Super Bowls X and XIII; the Cowboys won Super Bowl XXX.
In the 1997 season, the Broncos played in Super Bowl XXXII against the Green Bay Packers, and won by a score of 31-24. The game was played on January 25, 1998. In the 1998 season, the Broncos played in Super Bowl XXIII against the Atlanta Falcons, and won by a score of 34-19. The game was played on January 31, 1999.
As of Super Bowl XLII, that has never happened. The only time an undefeated team has played in the Super Bowl, before this season's Patriots, is the 1972 Miami Dolphins and they defeated the Washington Redskins, 14-7, in Super Bowl VII.
