The National Football League (NFL) is the highest level of professional American football. The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the NFL.
Which NFL teams have never played in a Super Bowl? The answer may surprise you.
The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league. It was formed in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association (APFA) before renaming itself as the National Football League for the 1922 season. The NFL agreed to merge with the American Football League (AFL) in 1966, and the first Super Bowl was held at the end of that season; following the merger, Super Bowl Sunday is considered to be an unofficial national holiday.
As of 2020, there are 32 NFL teams split into two conferences: the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). From 1920 to 1931, each team played two games against every other team; in 1932, this increased to playing each team three times. Since 2002, each team plays every other team at least once during the regular season.
Out of these 32 teams, 20 have played in at least one Super Bowl as of 2020; this includes nine teams who have won at least one Super Bowl. The Pittsburgh Steelers have won six Super Bowls, more than any other team; they are also tied with the New England Patriots for most appearances in a Super Bowl, with eleven apiece. The Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos have each appeared eight times, while the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants have both appeared five times.
