A "wildcard" is a team that made the playoffs without winning their division. Playoffs are made up of the top 6 teams from each conference. There are 4 division winners and 2 wildcards from each conference. The wildcards are the 2 teams with the best win-loss records that did not win their division

Was the first NFL Super Bowl played in Miami?

Yes and No. I do not mean to be funny. The first Super Bowl was played in 1967 in Los Angeles, California. However, the first Super Bowl, and actually the first four Super Bowls, were not called the "Super Bowl" but rather the "AFL-NFL Championship Game". The name of the game was officially changed to "Super Bowl" in 1970 when the American Football League merged with the National Football League. The names of the four AFL-NFL Championship Games were redesignated to Super Bowl I through Super Bowl IV. The first game played where the name was officially the "Super Bowl" was Super Bowl V and it WAS played in Miami, Florida.

Either the Green Bay Packers or the Kansas City Chiefs, depending on exactly what you mean by "first super bowl".

The first championship game that was actually officially called the "Super Bowl" was played 3 years later, and that one was won by the Chiefs (particularly fitting, since the team's owner was one of the people who had suggested the name "Super Bowl" in the first place) who beat the Vikings.
