"I walked away from the Last Great Time War, I marked the passing of the Timelords, I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained -- no time, no space, just ME! I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man! And I watched universes freeze and creations burn, I have seen things you wouldn't believe, I have lost things you will never understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it! Take it all baby! Have it! You have it all!"

Safeties aren't that abnormal an occurance. In addition to a tackled player in the end zone, you can also get safeties through blocked punts and through a penalty (whether it be holding, intentional grounding, etc.).
I think the only reason Indianapolis missed a PAT was due to the game being played in a downpour. But 9 missed PAT's in 43 games isn't too high.

The best teams don't necessarily have the best kickers.
Good point Saintsfan. Never been any overtime Super Bowl, and never a shutout either. Three times we were close to a shutout, with Miami scoring only 3, the Giants getting a runback for a score in Super Bowl 35, and Super Bowl 7, the Dolphins were about to go up 17-0 in a 17-0 season, and Garo's gaff happened. How incredibly and TRULY perfect would it have been had the Dolphins won 17-0 in that game?? Kind of a shame it didn't happen that way
Still, it seems the number of missed PATs seems rather high, especially when you can argue that these are supposed to be the 2 BEST teams remaining. It has to be nerves.
