Which NFL division has the most Super Bowl titles? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
With the preseason winding down and the 2022-23 NFL regular season swiftly approaching, fans have begun to turn their attention to which team will win this season’s Super Bowl and hoist the coveted Lombardi Trophy.
While the Super Bowl is the ultimate battle between two final NFL teams, earlier divisional battles are just as competitive and entertaining as teams look to reach the championship. Some teams have never won or even made it to the Super Bowl, but there are some teams that have accumulated quite a few titles over the years.
Here’s all you need to know on which NFL division has won the most Super Bowl titles:
Which division has the most Super Bowl wins?
The NFC East is the most successful division in the NFL since the first Super Bowl in 1967. The NFC East has grabbed 21 NFC championships and 13 Super Bowl victories, marking the highest of any division in the league.
In that division, the Dallas Cowboys hold the lead with five wins, followed by the New York Giants with four and the Washington Commanders, who have won three.
The last team in the NFC East to win a Super Bowl title was the Philadelphia Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI in 2017, which was led by backup quarterback Nick Foles after Carson Wentz went down with an ACL tear.
Which division has the lowest number of Super Bowl wins?
The AFC South has the least Super Bowl wins with two.
In 1971, the Indianapolis Colts snagged their first Super Bowl win, defeating the Cowboys 16-13, and 35 years later they won in Super Bowl XLI, where they defeated the Chicago Bears 29-17.
Fellow AFC South teams – the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans – have never won or even appeared in the NFL Super Bowl.
Here’s the full leaderboard for Super Bowl titles by division:
1. NFC East: 13

T-3. AFC West: 8
AFC North: 8
NFC West: 8
6. NFC North: 5
