Seven different teams have won back-to-back Super Bowls, one of which has done it twice:
- Green Bay Packers (Super Bowls I and II)
- Miami Dolphins (Super Bowls VII and VIII)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (twice: Super Bowl IX and X, and Super Bowl XIII and XIV)
- San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV)
- Dallas Cowboys (Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII)
- Denver Broncos (Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII)
- New England Patriots (Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX)
No team has yet won three Super Bowls in a row, although several have come close:
- The Green Bay Packers won the first two Super Bowls, but had also won the NFL championship in the preceding year.
- The Miami Dolphins appeared in three consecutive Super Bowls (Super Bowls VI, VII and VIII), winning the last two.
- The San Francisco 49ers won two consecutive Super Bowls (Super Bowls XXIII and XXIV) before being eliminated in the NFC championship game the following year by the eventual champion New York Giants.
- The Dallas Cowboys won two consecutive Super Bowls (Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII) before being eliminated in the NFC championship game the following year by the eventual champion San Francisco 49ers. The Cowboys would then win Super Bowl XXX the following year.
Super Bowl appearances by team
Teams with no Super Bowl appearances
Four current teams have never reached the Super Bowl. Two of them held NFL league championships prior to Super Bowl I in the 1966 NFL season:
- Detroit Lions, NFL champions four times in 1935, 1952, 1953, and 1957; appeared in one other NFL Championship Game in 1954; and appeared in one NFC Championship Game in 1991
- Cleveland Browns, NFL champions four times in 1950, 1954, 1955, and 1964; appeared in six other NFL championship games in 1951, 1952, 1953, 1957, 1968, and 1969; and appeared in three AFC Championship Games in 1986, 1987, and 1989 (The Browns are officially viewed as one continuous franchise that began in 1946 as a member of the All-America Football Conference, joined the NFL in 1950, suspended operations from 1996–1998, and resumed play in 1999. The Baltimore Ravens were an expansion team created in1996 with former Browns players.)
- Jacksonville Jaguars, 1995 expansion team; appeared in two AFC Championship Games in 1996 and 1999
- Houston Texans, 2002 expansion team; two Divisional Round appearances in 2011 and 2012.
In addition, Detroit, Houston and Jacksonville have hosted Super Bowls; this means Cleveland is the only current NFL city that has neither hosted, nor had their team played in, a Super Bowl.
