In the past 10 Super Bowls, 7 teams without a bye have made it to the Super Bowl. 5 of them have won:

03 Panthers - NFC 3rd seed (Lost Super Bowl)
05 Steelers - AFC 6th seed (Won Super Bowl)
06 Colts - AFC 4th seed (Won Super Bowl)
07 Giants - NFC 4th seed (Won Super Bowl)
08 Cardinals - NFC 4th seed (Lost Super Bowl)
10 Packers - NFC 6th seed (Won Super Bowl)
11 Giants - NFC 4th seed (Won Super Bowl)

Interesting that 1 of the teams that lost was coached by Fox, and 1 of the teams that won was Quarterbacked by Manning.
