- 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.
