Most Super Bowl Wins
Which NFL team has the most superbowl wins.
NFL games are eagerly awaited by millions of football fans nationwide. The televised broadcast of the Super Bowl, which is the championship game of the NFL, is the most watched television program of the year in the United States. Many people cheer on their favorite teams and watch as two teams do their best to come out as the winner of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which is the trophy awarded to the winning team of the Super Bowl. Below are the teams that have achieved the most Super Bowl wins:
Based in Irving, Texas, the Cowboys currently use the Texas Stadium for their home games, but are scheduled to move to a stadium in Arlington by 2009. The Dallas Cowboys became part of the NFL in 1960 as an expansion team. On September 13, 2007, an article was published on the website of Forbes Magazine, listing the Cowboys as the football franchise with the highest value. The estimated worth of the franchise is $1.5 billion. The Dallas Cowboys team is also considered as one of the wealthiest NFL teams, with a capacity of generating approximately $250 million in annual revenue. The Cowboys have participated in the Super Bowl eight times and won five of these games. These games include Super Bowls VI, XII, XXVII, XXVIII and XXX.
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Steelers are part of the North Division of the American Football Conference. The Pittsburgh Steelers were founded in 1933 as the Pittsburgh Pirates, making them the oldest franchise in the AFC. This team has won five out of the six Super Bowls they participated in. The Steelers managed to bring home the trophy during Super Bowls IX, X, XII, XIV, and XL. They also appeared in Super Bowl XXX but didn't win the game. Aside from winning five Super Bowls, the Steelers have also had seventeen coaches and players which are now part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The primary rivals of the Steelers include the Cleveland Browns, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Baltimore Ravens. In August 2008, ESPN.com proclaimed the fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers as the best in the NFL, as evidenced by the fact that the Steelers have had a sellout streak of 299 consecutive games.
San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers plays its home games in San Francisco, California. The 49ers are members of the Western Division of the National Football Conference. The team started playing in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference. It was in 1950 that they joined the NFL. During the 1980s and early 1990s, the San Francisco 49ers team was considered by many to be one of the best teams in the history of the NFL, most notably the 1984 and 1989 teams. Remarkable players of the 49ers include Ronnie Lott, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and Joe Montana. Some of the most unforgettable plays and games such as Super Bowl XXIII were played by the 49ers as well. This team was the first to win five Super Bowls, and although the 49ers share the glory of having five Super Bowls along with the Steelers and Cowboys, it's the 49ers who have appeared in the Super Bowl multiple times and remain undefeated. They have appeared in Super Bowls XVI, XIX, XXIII, and XXIV, and won all of them.
