I am not really that surprised.

Since 2005, the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds are just 10-12 (.454) in the divisional playoff round. That's NFL not just NFC. But to be fair No. 1 seeds are a combined 30-12 in the divisional playoffs since 1990. i.e. 12 lost out of 42.

And I know you are referring to pre-conference championship games but since Super Bowl XXVIII, the next (and currently last time) that both number one seeds advanced to the Super Bowl is Super Bowl XLIV.

BTW - what is your point?
