Both #1 seeds are now gone, and the field is wide open. I was shocked to see the Patriots lose today. Brady looked a little off, which was especially interesting in light of Aaron Rodgers' dominating performance in Atlanta the night before. The times they are a-changing.

Yeah i was so surprised when they lost today. The Jets really took away the deep passes down the field and Brady looked off his game. Do any of you guys know when the last time 2 #6 seeds made it to the super bowl. It could very well happen with the Jets and Packers.

It's never happened. The Steelers won it as a #6 a few years ago, and the Giants won it as a #5. But two #6s facing each other? Never.

I don't believe that's ever happened either.

I personally believe the league heaved a great sigh of relief that they won't have to worry about having a Super Bowl featuring two No. 1 seeds. As I pointed out in another thread, such Super Bowls have historically made for bad television.

By contrast, the NFL has to be delighted to have the Packers/Bears NFC championship. Tickets for this game will be outlandishly expensive, and the game may well have the highest TV ratings of any NFL playoff game ever. The league also has to be pleased the Packers are still in it, since they're the only one of the remaining NFC teams to have shown the potential to beat the Jets or Patriots.

I think a Super Bowl featuring two No. 6 seeds could make for a compelling storyline. In some ways it would be a bit embarrassing for the league, but on the other hand, it would reinforce the league's "any given Sunday" motif and demonstrate the degree of parity that exists right now. They'll be able to point out that any team can have hope of making it to the big dance.

This year's #6 seeds were right in the mix all along, so the league would have nothing to be embarrassed about if they played each other in the Super Bowl. The Seahawks, on the other hand, would've made some people uncomfortable. It's really best that they got blown out today rather than in a later round.

I'm pretty sure that we've never had two wild card teams in the Super Bowl. But here is the list of wild card teams that have won it:

1980 Oakland Raiders-Super Bowl XV (played in 1981)
1997 Denver Broncos-Super Bowl XXXII (played in 1998)
2000 Baltimore Ravens-Super Bowl XXXV (played in 2001)
2005 Pittsburgh Steelers-Super Bowl XL (played in 2006)
2007 New York Giants-Super Bowl XLII (played in 2008)
