Every year since 1966, the Super Bowl has given NFL teams the chance to prove who the league champions are on the biggest stage. Over the years, there have been many Super Bowl winners and losers, but which team has won the most Lombardi trophies? Which football player has more Super Bowl rings than any other in NFL history?
Who has the most Super Bowl wins? That depends if you’re talking among players or teams. Don’t worry, we’ve got all the answers.
Five teams tied with one Super Bowl victory
There are a total of five teams with just one Super Bowl victory.
- New York Jets – 1969
- Chicago Bears – 1986
- New Orleans Saints – 2010
- Seattle Seahawks – 2014
- Philadelphia Eagles – 2018
While each team is in constant pursuit of becoming Super Bowl winners for a second time, it’s still better than the eight NFL teams who have never even won a league championship. In fact, there are four teams who have never even made a Super Bowl appearance, as sad as it is.
After a phenomenal season so far, it’s possible the Eagles make the jump to the next section in February. They began the postseason with home-field advantage in each game they’ve played as the top seed in the NFC and even enjoyed a week of rest before their games began. But as we know, no one remembers the losers. The Eagles still have to beat Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, which is no easy feat.

Green Bay Packers, New York Giants – Four wins in Super Bowl history
Two more teams who have been around forever, the Green Bay Packers began play in 1919 and the New York Giants in 1925. Both teams have enjoyed historic victories in their time. There’s a reason why Vince Lombardi has the Super Bowl trophy named after him, the Packers were dominant in the 1960s.
As great as these two franchises once were, they ended up being on the outside looking in when it comes to getting back to Lombardi-land at the end of the 2022-23 season. Yet, the Giants at least had a shot, having made the Wild Card as the sixth seed in the NFC and advancing to the Divisional round. Alas, a meeting with a deeply talented, Super Bowl-bound Eagles team proved too much to overcome.

San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys – Five Super Bowl wins
Talk about dominance. The Dallas Cowboys had two eras to be proud of, with two Super Bowl wins in the 1970s and three more from 1984-94 thanks to a multitude of stars. The San Francisco 49ers have had some of the greatest players of all time and won a whopping five Super Bowls from 1981 to 1994. What a time to be alive.
While both of these franchises already have a legendary history, they both began as strong contenders in the 2023 postseason. Yet, the 49ers’ chances took a big hit, with Jimmy Garoppolo being ruled out for the season. This comes after losing their preferred starter, Trey Lance, at the start of the year.
San Francisco had a mountain to climb to reach six Super Bowl victories, and they entered the playoffs as the NFL’s hottest team, winning ten games in a row, but how can anyone overcome injuries to the final two healthy QBs on the roster? It’s incredible they even made it to the Championship game, being down to the final pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, but Brock Purdy did his best. It’s hard not to wonder what could have been had Purdy not suffered an elbow injury in the NFC Championship.
But San Franciso and Dallas both have a rich talent pool, meaning their hopes of adding a sixth trophy to their showcase could come as soon as the 2024 Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots – Six SB wins
No team has more Super Bowls than the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, who each have six apiece. Eventually, there may be a team with more Super Bowl wins, but for now, the Steelers and Patriots have the ultimate bragging rights.
We’re at least a year away from either of these teams separating themselves further from the pack. While the defenses were as good as always, both teams’ offenses really held them back in the 2022-23 season.

Players with the most Super Bowl wins
Teams have their own records, but players switch cities every offseason, meaning some players could win a Super Bowl every year if they have some luck. Which player has the most Super Bowl wins?
None other than Tom Brady of course. There’s a reason why they call him the GOAT. Seven Super Bowl rings will do that. Behind TB12 is pass rusher Charles Haley, who won two rings with the 49ers and three more with America’s Team.

Details about the Lombardi Trophy
It’s been said that the Lombardi Trophy takes a total of four months to construct, with up to 72 hours of labor put into the work, costing a total of $50,000 when all is said and done. Yet, the actual value of the trophy is just $10,000.
Meaning when Tom Brady decided to throw the Super Bowl LV trophy from one boat to another during the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl parade after the 2021 season, even if it had landed at the bottom of the bay, it wouldn’t have been the end of the world.
Even though the trophy seems like it would weigh a hefty amount, it is constructed of sterling silver, which isn’t that dense. In all, the Lombardi weighs 107.3 ounces or roughly seven pounds. It has some weight, but not enough to deter anyone from trying to throw it like a football, or at least not Brady.
