The Super Bowl Teams and Their Michigan Connections

It’s the Super Bowl Edition of “Detroit By The Numbers,” a WDET series that examines — and explains — data related to a variety of subjects.

First, two NFL players are tied with the most number of Super Bowls played: Tom Brady, the University of Michigan quarterback, now with the Patriots and Mike Lodish, an 11-year veteran of the league who played with Buffalo and Denver. A native of the area, he lives in Oakland County. Click on the audio above to hear what he has to say about his time in the league and what the week before the Super Bowl is like.

Also, with the big game happening Sunday, we thought it would be interesting to see how the Detroit Lions have fared against the two teams.

Here are those scorecards:

 
 

 

As you’re watching on Sunday, you’ll see a few players and coaches with connections to the Mitten State.

This post is a part of Detroit by the Numbers.

WDET is putting Detroit’s urban — and suburban — data myths to the test, separating fact from fiction.  

Detroit by the Numbers is produced by WDET 101.9 FM and is powered by the Detroit Journalism Cooperative. Support for this project comes from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Renaissance Journalism’s Michigan Reporting Initiative and the Ford Foundation.
