The Super Bowl: By the numbers
By Bob Carter
Special to ESPN Classic


On Sunday, one team and their fans will countdown the seconds to a Super Bowl win. Here's our own version of the countdown:

10 -- Games hosted by the state of Florida (Miami 8, Tampa 2; this year's game will be Tampa's third).

9 -- Turnovers suffered by Buffalo in losing in 1993.

8 -- Appearances by Dallas, most of any team.

7 -- Rushing yards by New England vs. Chicago, 1986, fewest of any team.

6 -- Defensive players to win MVP (Chuck Howley, Jake Scott, Harvey Martin, Randy White, Richard Dent, Larry Brown)

5 -- Super Bowl champion rings owned by Charles Haley (two with San Francisco, three with Dallas), most of anyone.

4 -- Wins by Pittsburgh coach Chuck Noll (1975-76; 1979-80), a record.

3 -- Points by Miami in 1972, fewest in a Super Bowl.

2 -- Turnover-free games (1991, N.Y. Giants-Buffalo; 2000, St. Louis-Tennessee).

1 -- MVPs from a losing team (Dallas linebacker Chuck Howley, 1971).

0 -- Wins by coaches Bud Grant, Marv Levy and Dan Reeves (each 0-4).
