The last team to win the Super Bowls back-to-back was the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005. Winning Super Bowls back-to-back is a rare and unlikely fact that only 7 NFL franchises have accomplished, a total of 8 times. The Super Bowl Back-to-Back Champions is something the league hasn’t experienced in more than fifteen years, but based on the results of NFL Conference Championship weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs will have a chance to change that.
Current Super Bowl champion Kansas City he defeated the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game and booked a trip to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV on February 7th. If Kansas City manages to knock out the Bucs, they will become the eighth franchise to claim victories back in the Super Bowl.
Which teams won the Super Bowls backwards?
- Green Bay Packers (Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, 1967-1968)
- Miami Dolphins (Super Bowl VII and Super Bowl VIII, 1973-1974)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (Super Bowl IX, Super Bowl X, 1975-1976)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (Super Bowl XIII, Super Bowl XIV 1979-1980)
- San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowl XXIII, Super Bowl XXIV 1989-1990)
- Dallas Cowboys (Super Bowl XXVII, Super Bowl XXVIII 1993 – 1994)
- Denver Broncos (Super Bowl XXXII, Super Bowl XXXIII 1998-1999)
- New England Patriots (Super Bowl XXXVIII, Super Bowl XXXIX 2004-2005)
Pittsburgh has the distinction of being the only franchise to appear on the list twice, since the team ruled the half in the late 1970s. Pittsburgh’s first back-to-back race came in the years immediately after Miami Dolphins Super Bowl back-to-back victories, ensuring the NFL sees only two franchises as champions in a four-year period.
In addition, these two teams have been champions for 6 seasons out of 8 between 1973 and 1980. There has never been another field in NFL history where three teams have won the Super Bowls behind the scenes, establishing the the 70s as an era lacking in parity, by the usual suspects.
The New England Patriots were the team to repeat as back-to-back champions of the Super Bowl most recently, in the mid-2000s. New England was under the direction of quarterback star Tom Brady, which will lead the Buccaneers against the Chiefs in their effort to join Brady on this exclusive list.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes he’s the highest paid quarterback in the NFL for good reason, and the clash between two of the game’s greatest players today is sure to produce offensive pyrotechnics worthy of the biggest stop of the season. The Chiefs will try to repeat as Super Bowl champions in Tampa, Florida on February 7th.
