Every NFL franchise is ultimately judged by the number of championships they have won. Below is a full list of appearances, wins, and losses for every NFL team (or franchise). We will also look at some of the other impressive accomplishments, or lack there of, for Super Bowl teams throughout history.
The winning team in the Super Bowl receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named for the Packers’ coach who won the very first NFL Championship. Players each receive a championship ring, customized for their team. We have also compiled a complete list of the players who have earned the most Super Bowl rings throughout their careers.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots currently hold the NFL record with six Super Bowl victories. The Steelers run of four wins in the span of six seasons in the 70s remains one of the most impressive feats in NFL history. The Patriots have dominated the 2000s and scored their sixth title in 2018. Just two teams have won five Lombardi Trophies: the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers.
The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots have the unfortunate distinction of being the only franchises with five Super Bowl losses. There have also been two teams to lose in the big game four times: the Minnesota Viking and the Buffalo Bills.
While the Pats have six championships to their credit and the Broncos have won three, neither the Vikings nor Bills have ever won the Super Bowl. The Bills are a unique case in that their four losses came in four consecutive seasons.
A total of 13 NFL franchises have zero bowl victories, but only the Texans, Jaguars, Lions, and Browns have never appeared in one.
Below is the list of every NFL team with their Super Bowl appearances, wins, winning seasons, losses, and losing seasons. *Game result to be determined.

You’ll also note multiple players that have four rings from both the 49ers in the 1980s and the Steelers in the 1970s (see notes below the table for details).
Special mention here to Bill Belichick, who is the only individual in NFL history to collect eight Super Bowl rings (two as the defensive coordinator of the NY Giants and six as the head coach of the Patriots).
