In 2005 the Steelers defeated the Seahawks, the Steelers were the 6th seed while the Seahawks were the #1.
Most recently the 10-6 Green Bay Packers as a 6th seed went to the Super Bowl in 2011 and beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Two sixth seed NFL teams have gone on to reach and win the Super Bowl. The sixth seed 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers and the sixth seed 2010-11 Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. How ironic. You all forget about the giants in 07 they did it to so that means 3 teams have won it all from the 6th seed check your facts whoever wrote this
Yes, the Pittsburgh Steelers (AFC) in 2005 and Green Bay Packers (NFC) in 2010. Both were second wild-card teams (6th seed).
February 6th, 2011
Sunday the 6th of February.
February 6th 2011
If you are referring to the Super Bowl on February 6th, 2011, then yes, the Green Bay Packers did win.
Could be the Super Bowl XV Wild Card team Oakland Raiders, who beat the favored Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 27 - 10 on January 25, 1981. The very next year, the Raiders didn't even make the playoffs, with a losing season, going 7-9-0. And although the 6th seed Wild Card team Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl XL, they could never be referred to as a "Worst" anything. It was a matter of # of wins and losses that had them at 6th seed, but they knew how to persevere. The next season was a break-even for the Steelers at 8 - 8, but QB Ben Roethlisberger, prior to the beginning of that season, was riding his motorcycle without a helmet and was hit by a car, resulting in lots of injuries. He later had an appendicitis attack and more surgery and then had a concussion at the beginning of the season. Then the 5th seed Wild Card team New York Giants won Super Bowl XLII, defeating the previously UNDEFEATED New England Patriots, who ended the season 18 - 1. I'm not so sure that any team who wins a Super Bowl could be considered a worst. Because the Giants were great !
