Gabe Fernandez @thelatinochild Updated at 9:44 a.m. ET Updated at 9:44 a.m. ET Since 1967, the best teams from each of the NFL's conferences have met in the Super Bowl to determine the league champion. The Super Bowl's history is so revered that even the simplest of descriptions, such as "The Catch" and "Philly Special," can bring up vivid memories, and virulent reactions depending on a fan's perspective. To say that the Super Bowl is huge for broadcasters would be an understatement. Nine of the 10 most-watched individual programs in American television history are different iterations of the Super Bowl, the one exception being the series finale of M*A*S*H. Advertisers spend millions just to get mere seconds of airtime to showcase their commercials in between moments of the game.

Dan Bernstein @dan_bernstein_ Updated at 5:48 p.m. ET Updated at 5:48 p.m. ET As the Patriots play in Super Bowl 53, their ninth under quarterback Tom Brady, many will wonder how their own teams stack up in the history books. Of the 28 franchises to have played in a Super Bowl, 20 have actually won a championship. The Steelers lead the NFL with six Super Bowl victories, while the Patriots, Cowboys and 49ers each have five wins. The Bills and Vikings are tied for most Super Bowl appearances without a win at 0-4. Buffalo, of course, lost four straight from 1991-94. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams, who face New England in Super Bowl 53, have won one of their three title game appearances.

On Sunday, Tom Brady will take the field for the Patriots’ opening drive for his ninth time. When the curtain falls on Super Bowl 53, Brady’s opponent, Rams star Jared Goff, will be the 40th passer to have started exactly one Super Bowl — a club that includes Hall of Famers like Dan Marino, Steve Young, and Ken Stabler.

If the Philadelphia Eagles run the table over the next five weeks of the regular season, mathematically they will clinch the NFC East and go to the playoffs. Of course, if you've watched them play football over the last three months, you already know that the odds of that actually happening are somewhere between slim and none. With the Dallas Cowboys' win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, the Eagles' chances of making the playoffs fell considerably, and while they can still salvage this season, many fans have already begun to wonder, "So was that it? It was just a one-year ride, and it's all over?" Before the season began, we took a historical look at whether a "Super Bowl hangover" was a thing that actually existed, and came to the conclusion that it was a myth, at least for the winner of the Super Bowl. After all, if the Eagles don't make it back to the playoffs, they will be only the 10th team over the last 30 years not to do so. (Of course, if you believe what the Eagles is … [Read more...] about A historical look at teams that won the Super Bowl, missed the playoffs the next year, and then…
