Jets-Vikings almost happened twice (1998 and 2009) but they lost their respective Conference Championship game both times. Super Bowl XXXIII (1998) would've been the better looking uniform matchup in a different timeline.

If both conference title games flipped, this would have been Super Bowl XXV instead of Bills-Giants:

That's another one that feels like it should have happened before. It's amazing that the 49ers have played in six Super Bowls but never against the Raiders, Patriots, Steelers, or Colts, who have combined to be 26 - exactly half - of the AFC/AFL's participants to this day.

Cool thread idea.

 

Here's a good one that hasn't been mentioned. 

 

1999 had the possibility of an all Florida matchup coming out of the final four in what would've both teams wearing their peak looks, but they both lost. The Jaguars only lost 3 games that season and they were all to Tennessee. The Bucs got hosed on the Burt Emanuel call.

1995 instead of cowboys/Steelers III...

this would have been a beauty.

That would've looked nice, but I think Packers in green against Colts in white would have looked even nicer...not that it would have happened, but for some reason I love the Colts in all-white.
