None occur record

In the history of the Super Bowl, the following "firsts" have yet to occur:
*Snowy weather - While Super Bowl XLI was the first to feature rain, snow has yet to fall during the game. This is highly unlikely (barring a freak occurrence in Arizona, Florida, Southern California, or Texas, and/or a malfunctioning retractable roof) since the NFL only schedules the game in warm weather climates and/or indoor stadiums.
*An all-wild card matchup (teams who failed to win their divisions) - Nine wild card teams (since the 1970 merger) have won conference titles, but never two in the same season.
*A shutout - Every Super Bowl participant to date has scored. In four cases the offenses have been shut out while the special teams scored the only points: Super Bowl VI: The Miami Dolphins finished with 3 points, the fewest in a Super Bowl to date (and the only losing team to date to fail to score a touchdown).Super Bowl VII: The Washington Redskins returned a fumble for a touchdown after blocking a field goal attempt.Super Bowl IX: The Minnesota Vikings recovered a blocked punt in the end zone but missed the extra point.Super Bowl XXXV: The New York Giants scored on a 97-yard kickoff return.
*A punt return touchdown - While many kickoffs have been returned for a touchdown, a punt has yet to be returned for one.
*Home field advantage (playing in one's own home stadium) - The closest instances to this have been Super Bowls XI (featuring the Raiders playing down the coast) and XIV (featuring the Rams from nearby Los Angeles) both being played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena; XIX (featuring the 49ers from nearby San Francisco) being played at Stanford Stadium which is about 25 miles south of the 49ers' home stadium, Candlestick Park; and XXXVII (featuring the Raiders again playing downcoast) being played in San Diego.
*Two teams from the same metropolitan area: one city currently has two franchises: New York City has the Giants and the Jets. (In the past Los Angeles was home to the Raiders and the Rams, but both teams left town in 1996.) Also two pairs of teams share a common metropolitan area, although they are based in different cities: the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins; as well as the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. Every team mentioned above has won a Super Bowl, but never against its neighbor.
*Overtime - The narrowest margin of victory in a Super Bowl is one point, in Super Bowl XXV (1991). The closest instances to overtime, in which the result of the last play of the game could have realistically led to a tie and thus an overtime, have been: Super Bowl V: Baltimore's Jim O'Brien kicked a game-winning field goal with :05 left.Super Bowl XXXIV: Tennessee's Kevin Dyson was stopped one yard short of a tying touchdown.Super Bowl XXXVI: New England's Adam Vinatieri kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired.Super Bowl XXXVIII: New England's Adam Vinatieri kicked another game-winning field goal with :04 left.There have also been two instances in which the trailing team scored a late, go-ahead touchdown when a field goal could have tied the score: SB XXIII, the San Francisco 49ers scored with 34 seconds left to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16 when a field goal would have tied it at 16; and SB XLII, the New England Patriots scored a late touchdown to take a 14-10 lead when a field goal would have tied the game at 10, even though the Giants would later retake the lead on a touchdown of their own.
*An appearance by every team - Six teams have yet to reach their first Super Bowl: Arizona, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Jacksonville, and New Orleans.
*A team winning without a touchdown - Every Super Bowl champion to date has scored at least one touchdown in their efforts (New York Jets scored only one touchdown in their Super Bowl III triumph).
*No touchdowns scored - In every Super Bowl to date, there have been at least two touchdowns scored (Fewest combined - 2, in Super Bowl III).
