Are there any repeat winners of the Super Bowl?

Let's look at the history of repeat Super Bowl champions. It's no accident that the NFL championship trophy is named after Vince Lombardi, one of the league's all-time great coaches and the man who led the Packers to victory in the first two Super Bowls. He guided them to another title just four years later. Since then, all but one of the remaining franchises have won at least once.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the only team to win back-to-back Super Bowls. They did so in 2015 and 2016. Both victories were over the New England Patriots.

In fact, every champion except for the San Francisco 49ers is either from the National Football League's Eastern Division or Western Division. This is likely a result of the NFL's rotation schedule, which ensures an equal number of home games for each team.

The exception is the St. Louis Rams, who played in the NFC West division of the NFL from 1995 to 2003 before moving to Los Angeles. The franchise was denied entry into the NFL due to financial issues. It resumed its existence in 1946 as an expansion team in St. Louis.

Repeat champions are common in other major U.S. sports leagues.

How many years have they been having the Super Bowl?

It has replaced the NFL Championship Game as the last game of every NFL season since 1966. The game has been played on the first Sunday in February since 2004. Winning teams get the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which is named for the namesake coach who won the first two Super Bowls.

The Super Bowl was originally called the National Football Conference (NFC) Championship Game until 2002 when it became the National Football League (NFL) Championship Game. The NFC and AFC are two leagues within the NFL that compete against each other for championships. In 1950, the NFL merged with the American Football League to form what is now known as the NFL. This merger created a single league with both Canadian and United States players allowed to play on the same team. The next year, the league divided into divisions with each team playing its opponents within their division twice per season. In addition, the top two finishers from each division advanced to an expanded tournament format featuring four groups of three teams each. The team at the top of each group went on to play in the Super Bowl.

Below is a list of all the winners of the Super Bowl. A green background indicates that the franchise has retained the title while a white background indicates that the franchise has lost the title.

They are also only the third team in NFL history to win back-to-back Super Bowls (1972-73), joining the 1972 Miami Dolphins and the 1973 Washington Redskins.

The Patriots are the most recent team to accomplish this feat, winning their second consecutive Super Bowl against the Eagles last month. This is just the fourth time that has happened with different teams winning each year's title.

The 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers are the most recent team to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They defeated the Cowboys 27-21 in Super Bowl X.

No team has been able to win more than two Super Bowl titles in a row. The 1972 Miami Dolphins and 1973 Washington Redskins are the only other team to do so.

Super Bowl winners have an average age of 29.9 years old in February. The 2014 Broncos are the oldest team in history to win the championship, at 30 years old.

Younger teams have won more recently. The 2016 Ravens are the youngest team to win the championship at 26 years old while the 1991 Buffalo Bills are the oldest at 33 years old.

Has there ever been a repeat Super Bowl winner?

The Chiefs, headed by current Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, may become the first team to win two consecutive Super Bowls since the Patriots in 2003 and 2004, when Tom Brady won his second and third crowns. Only seven clubs in NFL history have ever won back-to-back championships. The last team to do so was the San Francisco 49ers, who beat the Baltimore Colts 4-0 in the 1953 NFL Championship Game before losing 19-17 to the American Football League's (AFL) New York Giants in the 1954 AFL Championship Game.

The most recent club to try for a three-peat was the Pittsburgh Steelers, but they were defeated 26-16 by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 NFC Championship Game. If the Chiefs win their second title this year, they'll be the first team to accomplish this feat since the 1972 Miami Dolphins. That season, the Dolphins beat the Washington Redskins 27-7 in the Super Bowl III.

In fact, only one club has ever successfully defended its title. The Dallas Cowboys did it in 1977 after beating the Philadelphia Eagles 23-13 in the championship game.

Patrick Mahomes is the first quarterback to lead both the league in touchdown passes and interceptions while winning the MVP award. He joined a select group of quarterbacks that includes Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, and Ben Roethlisberger.
