Earning a Lombardi Ain’t Easy

Ask anyone who’s ever coached or played professional football – winning the Super Bowl is no easy feat; it’s darn near impossible.

Every year, thirty-two NFL franchises from both conferences brutally compete for eighteen weeks during the regular season to qualify for one of the fourteen available postseason spots.

Then, after a Wild Card round, a Divisional round, and Conference Championships, two final teams remain—one from the AFC and the other from the NFC—and they compete for one of the most coveted prizes in professional sports, the Lombardi Trophy, given to the Super Bowl Champion of that year.

Super Bowl Winners

Do Winners of the Super Bowl Get Paid Extra?

It’s true: Winners of every Super Bowl also make an extra paycheck and receive a unique ring for that game.

In terms of the paycheck, it’s substantial. The winner of Super Bowl LVIII—the Kansas City Chiefs or San Francisco 49ers—will receive a bonus worth $157,000. The loser will receive $82,000. This is in addition to other rounds of the postseason checks. In the Wild Card Round, teams that won a division but played in this round earned $46,500. Teams that got a first-round bye received $41,500. 

From there, teams in the Divisional Round received $46,500. Then, the teams that advance to the Conference Championship received an extra $69,000. 

The Super Bowl Winner Ring

Besides bragging rights and cash, Super Bowl winners receive an incredibly valuable ring specially designed and built for the occasion.

There are 150 rings made, with 53 given to players, then the coaches, executives, and others. The rings cost $5 million for all combined, making each worth about $36,000.

For example, when the Buccaneers won Super Bowl LV, it reportedly contained 15 carats of white diamond and 14 karat yellow and white gold. Still, the most exciting feature was a twist-off top that revealed a separate level featuring a hand-engraved, three-dimensional replica of their home field, Raymond James Stadium.

We'll have to wait until the conclusion of Super Bowl LVIII to see what it'll look like.

How Many NFL Teams Have Ever Won a Super Bowl?

If you include the teams that have moved to other cities, 20 total NFL franchises have won a Super Bowl.

In a league of 32 teams, 12 have never won in a Super Bowl.

Eight NFL teams have appeared in the Super Bowl at some point but have never won one, and four teams have never been there.

Which NFL Team Has Won the Most Super Bowls?

12 NFL franchises have won multiple Super Bowls.

  • New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers – 6 Wins

  • Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers – 5 Wins

  • New York Giants and Green Bay Packers – 4 Wins

  • LA/Oakland Raiders, Washington Commanders, Denver Broncos – 3 Wins

  • Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 2 Wins.

Which NFL Head Coach Has the Most Super Bowl Wins?

Thirty-two NFL head coaches have won a Super Bowl championship, and 13 have multiple wins.

The leader of the group is New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, whose teams have earned six Lombardi trophies under his leadership with nine total appearances.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Chuck Noll is next in line with four championship rings, followed up by San Francisco 49ers’ Bill Walsh and the Washington Redskin’s Joe Gibbs have three Super Bowl wins apiece.

Ten NFL head coaches have won two Super Bowls, and the rest in the list have won ‘just’ one, still a unique and remarkable feat in their careers.

Which NFL Quarterback Has Won the Most Super Bowls?

There are multiple reasons why just about everyone calls former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady the GOAT (greatest of all time). These reasons include his longevity, competitive energy, and willingness to get the best out of teammates. That said, his biggest claim to fame must be the number of times he’s taken his teams to the Big Game and the number of times he’s won it.

Brady leads the quarterback pack with 10 Super Bowl appearances and 7 Super Bowl wins, and they are Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX, LI, LIII, and LV.

Next in line are San Francisco 49ers’ legend Joe Montana and Pittsburgh Steelers’ stud Terry Bradshaw with four Lombardi trophies apiece, and then Dallas Cowboys’ superstar Troy Aikman with three to his name.

Which NFL Quarterbacks Have Won in Super Bowls Twice?

Eight NFL quarterbacks have been victorious in two Super Bowl Championships, and they are:

  • Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos

  • Eli Manning, New York Giants

  • Jim Plunkett, Oakland Raiders

  • Bob Griese, Miami Dolphins

  • Roger Staubach, Dallas Cowboys

  • Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

  • John Elway, Denver Broncos

  • Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers

  • Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs 

Approximately twenty quarterbacks have won a single Super Bowl. 

Who Will Be the Next Super Bowl Champion?

Super Bowl LVIII will be played on Sunday, February 11, 2024.

The San Francisco 49ers are predicted to be the next Super Bowl champs; the odds of winning were listed at -120, depending on the sportsbook you’re looking at.
