Additional information on the Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), pitting the champions of the NFL’s two conferences (AFC and NFC) against each other. The games were originally created as part of a merger agreement between the American Football League (AFL) and the National Football League, with the first Super Bowl being played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 football season. To identify the games, successive Roman numerals are used leading up to the most recent Super Bowl in 2014 (Super Bowl XLVIII).
With six championships wins, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the most successful NFL franchise in terms of the number of championships, as shown in the graph above.
