The Super Bowl is an annual championship game from the National Football League (NFL). Roman numerals historically identify each game instead of the year in which it was held, and an NFL team makes it to the Super Bowl by making it to the final round of the playoffs. Often, the team with the best record ends up going to the Super Bowl.

While teams don't have to win every game of the season, they do have to win all of the games in the playoffs, if they have the opportunity to do so.

It is during the conference championships where determinations for who makes it to the Super Bowl takes place, and the AFC or NFC Champion ultimately goes to the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl Championships

The first Super Bowl was held on January 15, 1967, when the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. This very first sports league championship didn't even have one team as part of the NFL yet, and the game wasn't officially known as the Super Bowl until the championship game's third edition.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowl championships (six), with the runner-ups being the New England Patriots, the Dallas Cowboys, and the San Francisco 49ers having five wins. Players that have won the most Super Bowl rings include Joe Montana, Keena Turner, Jesse Sapolu, Eric Wright, Mike Wilson, and Ronnie Lot. In fact, all of these players have won four Super Bowl rings with the 49ers.

Adam Vinatieri (kicker) also won three Super Bowl rings with the Patriots and one with the Colts.

There are 15 teams that have never won the Super Bowl, including expansion franchises like the Bengals, Panthers, Jaguars, and the Texas. The Buffalo Bills have lost four Super Bowls in the 1990's, and the Broncos have lost the Super Bowl five times, the most any team has lost in NFL history.
