By | source:Here Feb 7th, 2024

Who has won the most Super Bowls? Of course it’s the New England Patriots thanks entirely to the tremendous careers of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots, often simply referred to as the “Pats,” have an impressive record when it comes to Super Bowl appearances. They’ve stepped onto the field for the big game no less than 11 times, which is more than any other team in NFL history. Out of these appearances, they’ve emerged victorious six times, tying with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins.

Let’s not forget the memorable Super Bowl LI, where the Patriots made a historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons. Trailing 28-3 in the third quarter, they rallied spectacularly to win 34-28 in overtime, marking the largest come-from-behind victory in Super Bowl history. This epic win secured their fifth championship and solidified the Patriots as a dominant force in the NFL.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Like the Patriots, the Pittsburgh Steelers are no strangers to Super Bowl success. They’ve made it to the championship game eight times and, impressively, have clinched the Lombardi Trophy six times. Their first Super Bowl win came in 1975 (Super Bowl IX), marking the beginning of a golden era for the Steelers.

Their most memorable Super Bowl moment came in 2006 during Super Bowl XL. In a thrilling game against the Seattle Seahawks, wide receiver Hines Ward was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) after catching a critical touchdown pass thrown by fellow wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, a play that has since been etched in the annals of Super Bowl lore.

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys, often dubbed “America’s Team,” have made a total of eight Super Bowl appearances, tying with the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’ve won five of these championship games, putting them in third place for total Super Bowl victories.

One unforgettable moment for the Cowboys was in Super Bowl XXVII, where they crushed the Buffalo Bills 52-17. The game was marked by defensive lineman Leon Lett’s infamous fumble recovery that would have been a touchdown, if not for his premature celebration that allowed Bills’ player Don Beebe to knock the ball out of his hands.

Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos have graced the Super Bowl field eight times, tying with the Cowboys and Steelers for second-most appearances. However, they’ve only managed to secure victory in three of these games.

Their first Super Bowl win in 1998 (Super Bowl XXXII) is a standout moment in Broncos history. Against the heavily favored Green Bay Packers, running back Terrell Davis, battling migraines, rushed for three touchdowns, leading the Broncos to a 31-24 win and earning himself the MVP title.

San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have made it to the Super Bowl seven times and have an impressive win-loss record, with five victories and only two losses.

The 49ers’ most iconic Super Bowl moment undoubtedly came in Super Bowl XXIII. With just over three minutes left, and trailing the Cincinnati Bengals, Joe Montana led a 92-yard drive culminating in a touchdown pass to John Taylor with just 34 seconds remaining , securing a 20-16 win and etching the moment in Super Bowl history.


While the Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, Broncos, and 49ers are the teams with the most Super Bowl appearances and wins, several other teams also have multiple appearances and wins. The Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Washington Commanders (formerly Redskins), Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, and Los Angeles Rams all have made multiple appearances and won at least two Super Bowl titles, contributing to NFL history.
