Super Bowl Teams

I looked at the teams that appeared in the past ten Super Bowls, and how they fared in four categories in the regular season. Points scored, points against, field goal accuracy, and plus / minus in the turn-over department. For the first three, it's league rank. For plus / minus, it's just that. The data follows, with my attempt at a summary at the bottom.

Team Points Points Against FG Pct. Plus / Minus
Patriots 4 2 - tied 1 plus 9
Eagles 8 2 - tied 11 plus 6
Steelers 9 3 - tied 13 plus 7
Seahawks 1 7 29 plus 9
Colts 2 - tied 23 4 - tied plus 7
Bears 2 - tied 3 6 - tied plus 13
Giants 14 7 15 minus 9
Patriots 1 4 8 - tied plus 16
Steelers 20 1 14 plus 4
Cardinals 3 - tied 28 8 even
