Which teams have the most Super Bowl appearances, wins in NFL history?


The stage for Super Bowl LVI is set with the Cincinnati Bengals set to take on the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 13. The game will be broadcast live today on NBC and Peacock.

For some teams, playing on the big stage is familiar territory. But for others, the chance to play for the Lombardi Trophy is rare. Of the 28 franchises that have played in a Super Bowl, 20 have actually won the game. Due to the expansion of the NFL playoffs in 2020 in which the number of postseason teams grew from 12 to 14, more teams than ever before have the chance to play for the Lombardi Trophy.

Which NFL team has the most Super Bowl appearances in NFL history?

The New England Patriots are not only tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins in franchise history, but they also have the most appearances of any team in NFL history. When Tom Brady was in New England, he led the Patriots to nine Super Bowl berths, the first of which happened back in the 2001 season. The Patriots last reached the Super Bowl during the 2018 season when they would go on to win their sixth title. All of the Patriots’ six Super Bowl victories have come with Bill Belichick as the head coach and Brady under center at quarterback.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos are all tied with eight Super Bowl appearances while the San Francisco 49ers have seven. The Cowboys and 49ers are tied for second in the league with five Super Bowl victories each.

Five teams in the league are tied with five Super Bowl appearances: the Washington Football Team, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants and Las Vegas Raiders. The New York Giants have the most recent appearance of the five as they appeared in Super Bowl XLVI while the Miami Dolphins have not reached the Super Bowl since the 1984 season.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings are tied for the most Super Bowl appearances without a win at 0-4. The Bills famously lost four straight Super Bowls from 1990-93.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a 7-7 all-time record in the playoffs and their last postseason appearance came in 2017. The Detroit Lions advanced to the playoffs in 2016 and have a 7-13 overall record in the postseason. The Texans have the fewest postseason appearances of any team in the NFL with 10 and they are 4-6 in those matchups.

Five franchises have just one Super Bowl appearance: the New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Chargers and New York Jets. The Saints played for the Super Bowl most recently in the 2009-10 season, while the Jets have not competed for the Lombardi Trophy since the 1968-69 season.

NFL quarterback rankings 2023: Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown ahead of upcoming NFL season


While the NFL is a league that is ever-changing, some things are set to stay the same in 2023 — like the revealing of Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown.

Last year’s list saw Josh Allen take his place atop the quarterback throne, with Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Los Angeles’ Justin Herbert not far behind at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. It was, however, Mahomes who would ultimately reign over all NFL quarterbacks at the end of the season, as the 27-year-old collected both the NFL MVP honors and his second Lombardi Trophy.

This NFL offseason, however, has brought some intriguing adjustments that are likely to shake up Simms’ rankings.

While some signal-callers such as Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson found their prolonged home with massive contract signings, others will be venturing to a new franchise in search of a fresh start. Aaron Rodgers‘ trade to the New York Jets is unquestionably the most staggering shift, but other quarterbacks on the move such as Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo cannot be forgotten.

And with three of the first four picks in the 2023 NFL Draft being spent on a quarterback, emerging talent will likely turn the tides for some franchises this upcoming season.
