Welcome to Miami

January 25, 2010

After securing the best records in their respective conferences, the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints are headed to South Florida to play in Super Bowl XLIV. Fans from all over the world will descend upon South Florida for a match-up that will solidify a legend in Peyton Manning or elevate the pride of New Orleans to new heights.

Here's a brief overview of some interesting notes going into Super Bowl Sunday:

Quick Facts About the Match-Up
  • For the first time since 1993, two number one seeds will play on the big stage for the NFL Championship. 
  • Peyton Manning will make his second consecutive Super Bowl appearance in South Florida, while the Colts will have played all four of their franchise's Super Bowls in South Florida.
  • The Saints will be playing in their first ever Super Bowl in franchise history.
  • Both the Colts and the Saints played in Miami this season and mounted late-game comebacks against the Miami Dolphins.
  • Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell will be the fifth rookie coach to lead his team to a Super Bowl.

  • This will be the second team left by Tony Dungy to reach a Super Bowl in the following year, the Tampa Bay Bucaneers did the same in 2002.
South Florida will be hosting its record-breaking 10th Super Bowl and will also be hosting Pro Bowl 2010 the week before Super Bowl. It can't get any better than this for South Florida - two primetime events in one ideal destination.

The only thing missing is a guarantee that rain will not drown out the excitement like it did in 2007. Fans can only hope for drier days ahead.
