I wanted to check to see if there is some kind of trend for playing well late in the season and winning the SB.
Going back to 2000 SB winners are 35-13 in December and 18-6 the last two games of the year.
The Saints are the only team to have a losing record in December and win the SB in that time frame. Only three teams have split the month and won the SB. The Packers, Colts and Giants. Packers and Giants got hot and the Colts wanted to rest their starters.
Basically playing well in December can be one indicator of being a SB team.
