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.
