Since the NFL went to 6 playoff teams from each conference in the 1990 season, the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers (who won Super Bowl XL), are the only #6 seed team to win a Super Bowl.

Next weekend there are two #6 seeds playing in the conference championship games, the Packers in the NFC and the Jets in the AFC. Maybe we'll see a second #6 seed win a Super Bowl?

How do football players reach the super bowl?

In order to get to the Super Bowl a player has to be on a team that qualifies for the NFL Playoffs. There are two conferences in the NFL, the AFC and the NFC. Each conference has six teams that qualify for the post season. Teams can qualify for the playoffs as a division winner (4 teams) or as a wild card (2 teams). In order to get to the Super Bowl a team must win either two or three playoff games. If on a team seeded 1 or 2, the team plays in two playoff games. They are the Divisional Round and the Championship game. If the team wins both of these games, they qualify for the Super Bowl. If on a team seeded 3-6, then there are three games that must be won in order to qualify for the Super Bowl. The first round is the Wild Card Round, followed by the Divisional Round, and then the Championship game. If a player is on a team that wins all of their playoff games, that team qualifies to play in the Super Bowl.

Did the best two teams make it to the Super Bowl?

According to the Playoff seeding, YES. The Colts were the #1 Seeded team in the AFC and the Saints were the #1 Seeded team in the NFC. So technically, the two best teams in each Conference are playing in the Superbowl.
