Arguably the pinnacle of North American sports is winning the NFL’s greatest prize, the Super Bowl. Following a grueling 17, now 18, week season filled with injuries and drama then a short, compact playoff culminating in just two teams vying for the opportunity to lift the Lombardi Trophy.
As we near Super Bowl 56 in February 2022, there are two teams that have been crowned champion more than any other team since the first Super Bowl in 1967 and one of those teams may stand alone at the season’s end.
Which Teams Have Won The Most Super Bowls?
In the above graphic provided by Statista, you can see that the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots have won the most Super Bowls with six each. Of course, in more recent history you would think that the Pats would run away with this category as all six of their championships have come since 2001 while Pittsburgh won four of its six before 1980.
Will Pats Take Top Spot In 2022
We are nearing the end of the 2021 regular season, for fantasy players, you’re likely in the midst of the playoffs. In the real world, sitting atop the AFC standings is the New England Patriots with the highest point differential in the National Football League at +150.
New England has a scrappy defense and offensively is led by rookie QB Mac Jones who doing everything that he is asked to by head coach/mad genius Bill Belichick. The team was one of the last to get its bye week which could be a blessing or a curse, heading into that week having won seven straight will the time off kill the momentum or prime them for a playoff push?
Many thought the Patriots’ dynasty was over with the departure of Tom Brady in 2020 as he went on to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their second-ever Super Bowl. That said, one year removed and it appears that New England is back in the hunt ready to lift Lombardi Trophy number seven.
Could There Be A Three-Way Tie For Most Super Bowls?
OK, this could be a homer section, but as a Dallas Cowboys fan, there is great optimism that this team may take a run at an NFL championship for the first time since the 90s. America’s team leads the NFC East and is two games back in the NFC overall. Dallas has the third-best point differential in the NFC but is hoping that some key players returning from injury could move them from pretender to contender.
Notably on the defensive side of the ball, edge rusher Demarcus Lawrence returning in Week 13 for the first time since the opening game of the season and fellow defensive end Randy Gregory is set to return for the first time in over a month this Cowboys front line is about to get a lot more scrappy.
Offensively, Dallas had its full complement of dangerous wide receivers to its disposal in Week 13 for the first time in nearly a month leading to a 27-17 win over New Orleans. With a healthy lineup and playmakers all over the field, a Cowboys can only dream of football in February.
