Other than that, dome teams that have won the Super Bowl have done it by having home field advantage through a dome in the playoffs including the Super Bowl and/or facing another dome team in the Super Bowl outdoors.
How often does it happen for team's that don't normally play in a Dome?

I see the correlation as well, I just don't see the causation. Being heavily reliant on a high powered passing attack (like the Colts, Saints, the Vikings not to long ago, the Rams) etc. isn't a dome only thing. The Patriots and Green Bay in recent years have relied heavily on their quarterback and one of those teams won a play off game this year and another won a Superbowl last year.

Oh well I'm not talking about offensive styles, just environment. I just get the feelings team get used to playing the entire season in one place on a certain kind of turf, and that might effect their chances down the stretch.

As far as your first question, he's happened within the last ten years three times with the Packers, Giants, and Steelers. It's never happened for a dome team even once. I don't think a dome team has gotten close even.

Saints CANNOT win playoff games away from home.
Packers CANNOT win playoff games AT home.
