American football is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is adored by many Americans, who are die-hard fans for some of the teams in the country’s most popular and most competitive league – the National Football League (NFL).
Since this is the most-watched league in America, we decided to shed a bit of light into it and give you an update on the most decorated teams. The LIV Super Bowl just finished and bets are open as to who will reach the final next year. If you like to take a look at the favourites, you can register here and wager on your team.
Before we unveil the teams, let’s have a short recap of the last Super Bowl.
The 2020 Super Bowl Winner
Unlike last year’s Super Bowl, which was “crowned” as the most boring final in the history and saw the New England Patriots as the winner and had the lowest score ever (13-3), this the LIV Super Bowl was different. San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs tested their strengths at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The game finished 31-20 in favor of Kansas City Chiefs.
One other big highlight of the night was the half-time performance by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. Many fans were left in awe after their breathtaking performance. The show was so popular that it managed to amass over 100 million views on YouTube in a matter of a few days.
Now, let’s see which teams are the most decorated in NFL history.
Green Bay Packers/ New York Giants
At the start, we have Green Bay Packers and New York Giants tied at the 3rd spot. Both of these franchises have managed to win the Super Bowl 4 times. The Packers won the Super Bowl in 1966, 1967, 1996, and 2010. The New York Giants won it in 1986, 1990, 2007 and 20121.
San Francisco 49ers/ Dallas Cowboys
This year’s finalists and the Dallas Cowboys share the second spot with 5 Super Bowls each. If the 49ers managed to win it this year, they would’ve been among the most decorated teams, but unfortunately, the Chiefs were far better. 1981, 1984, 1988, 1989, and 1994 were the years that saw the 49ers as the winners. The Dallas Cowboys managed to win the Super Bowl in 1971, 1977, 1992, 1993, and 1995.
New England Patriots/ Pittsburgh Steelers
With last year’s win, the New England Patriots tied the Pittsburgh Steelers at the very top on the list of most decorated teams in the NFL. Both of these franchises have won the Super Bowl 6 times. The Patriots were successful in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, 2016, and 2018. The Pittsburgh Steelers were crowned as champions in 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2005, and 2008.
On the flip side of the coin, 12 teams, including the Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, and the Buffalo Bills, have never won the Super Bowl.
