Default Throwing 4 interceptions then winning the Superbowl

I was wondering, because I'm still optimistic, whether anyone had thrown 4 interceptions in their first game of the season and then gone on to win the Superbowl that year.

And the good news is they have:

Most recently Tom Terrific threw 4 ints in the Pats' 2003 31-0 opening loss to Buffalo. They haven't lost to Buffalo since.

Kenny Stabler threw 4 in Oakland's opener in 1976.

And Bart Starr did the same in 1967.

So there we are. I don't know how many of those teams also lost their talismanic middle linebacker for the year in the same game, but let's not think about that, eh?
