While every NFL team’s goal when camp starts is to be the Super Bowl winners, only one out of 32 teams achieve this goal. Throughout the 55 times the Super Bowl has been played, some teams have multiple Lombardi Trophies, while some teams have yet to win a Super Bowl.
Super Bowl winners by team
The NFL has always wanted parity amongst the teams. Yet, some have tended to reach the Super Bowl more than others. Through solid drafting, developing talent, and savvy maneuvering in free agency, teams can extend their runs for several years. As a result, teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s and New England Patriots of the 2000s were multiple-time Super Bowl winners.

Super Bowl trends
Of these Super Bowl winners, you start to see some of the trends the game has seen. As previously mentioned, the Steelers and Patriots have had their dynasties. The Colts, Raiders, and Rams all moved to different locations. The Miami Dolphins appeared in three consecutive Super Bowls (VI, VII, and VIII) – winning the last two and coming within one win of three consecutive Super Bowl titles.
Seven franchises have won consecutive Super Bowls, one of which (Pittsburgh) has accomplished it twice. The Dallas Cowboys won back-to-back Super Bowls in the 1990s, but they then lost in the NFC Championship the following year. To this day, no team has pulled off the three-peat. If Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs can win Super Bowl LV over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they will have the chance to make it three in a row next season.
