The #1 seed matters more in the NFC than it does in the AFC.....between 1990-2010

AFC #1 seeds are 22-19 in post season games (.537) NFC 37-14 (.725)

AFC #2 seeds are 25-18 in post season games (.581) NFC 24-18 (.571)

AFC #3 seeds are 22-20 in post season games (.524) NFC 14-21 (.400)

Overall the #1 seeds (combined AFC-NFC) are 59-33 (.641) #2's are 49-36 (.576) and #3's are 36-41 (.468)

Thirty-two of the 42 Super Bowl teams since 1990 have either been a #1 or #2 seed. The NFC #1 seed has won seven Super Bowls since 1990, most during that time. The AFC #2 and NFC #2 have each won three during that time. The NFC #1 seed has played in 12 of the 21 Super Bowls since 1990; the AFC #1 seed is second with eight Super Bowl appearances since 1990.
