Non-occurrences[edit]

In the history of the Super Bowl, the following firsts have yet to occur:

  • An all-wild card matchup (teams who failed to win their divisions) – Ten wild card teams have won conference titles since the AFL–NFL merger, but never two in the same season. The closest the NFL has come to having an all-wild card Super Bowl occurred during the 2010–11 NFL playoffs when the New York Jets, a wild card team, reached the AFC Championship Game where they played the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Jets 24–19. In the subsequent Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh Steelers faced another wild card team, the Green Bay Packers, who beat them 31–25. Every Super Bowl has had a first or second seeded team.
  • A shutout – Every Super Bowl participant to date has scored. In five cases, the offenses have failed to score a touchdown. In four of those cases, the special teams scored the only touchdown:
Super Bowl VI: The Miami Dolphins finished with 3 points, the fewest by a single team in a Super Bowl to date (and the only team to date to fail to score a touchdown).
Super Bowl VII: The Washington Redskins, after blocking a field goal attempt, returned a fumble on an attempted pass by the Dolphins kicker, Garo Yepremian, for a touchdown and converted the extra point with 2:07 remaining in the game.
Super Bowl IX: The Minnesota Vikings recovered a blocked punt in the end zone but did not convert the extra point with 10:33 left in the game.
Super Bowl XXIII: The Cincinnati Bengals scored on a 93-yard kickoff return with extra point in the third quarter and kicked 3 field goals throughout the game.
Super Bowl XXXV: The New York Giants scored on a 97-yard kickoff return and converted the extra point in the third quarter.
  • Home field advantage (playing in one's own home stadium) – No team has ever played in a Super Bowl hosted in its home stadium. On two occasions a team has played in a Super Bowl hosted in its metropolitan area but in a different stadium: The Los Angeles Rams played in Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, which is about 30 miles from their then-home stadium, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the San Francisco 49ers played in Super Bowl XIX at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, which is about 25 miles south of the former site of their then-home stadium, Candlestick Park, in San Francisco. The Minnesota Vikings are currently the only team to have come within one win of playing in a Super Bowl in their home stadium, as they lost in the NFC Championship Game in 2018 when their home field, U.S. Bank Stadium, was scheduled to host Super Bowl LII. The Vikings, however, would have remained designated as the "road team" had they advanced to the Super Bowl, in keeping with the NFC team being scheduled to be so designated.
  • Two teams from the same metropolitan area: Two cities currently have two franchises: New York hosts both the Giants and the Jets. Beginning with the 2017 NFL season, Los Angeles hosts both the Chargers and the Rams. Also two pairs of teams share a common metropolitan area, although they are based in different cities: the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins; as well as the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. All of the teams mentioned above except for the Chargers have won a Super Bowl, but never against their neighbor.
Super Bowl XLI between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears represents the geographically closest teams, separated by only 164 miles.
One game involved teams from the same state: Super Bowl XXIX involved the San Francisco 49ers and the San Diego Chargers. Super Bowl XXV involved the Buffalo Bills of New York and the New York Giants, who also historically and nominally represented the state but were by this point based in New Jersey.
