DALLAS — NFL teams playing this weekend have a tough road to Miami for the Super Bowl. Since 1990, when the current 12-team playoff format was introduced, teams seeded Nos. 3-6 have reached the Super Bowl only 12 times, and none since the 2012 Ravens.
Meanwhile, teams with a first-round bye have reached the Super Bowl 46 times in that span.
