The National Football League (NFL) is divided into two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Each conference is further split into four divisions of four teams. And many teams from both these conferences have won a Super Bowl.
Have you ever wondered what the NFL division has for every team that won a Super Bowl? The answer is the NFC East division. If a team has won the Super Bowl, this division represents that history.
The Dallas Cowboys are by far the most successful team in this division, winning 5 out of their 6 Super Bowls against the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, and Denver Broncos.
The NFC West is only second to the NFC East with three Super Bowl wins apiece by its teams: San Francisco 49ers (5), St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams (1), and Los Angeles Raiders (3).
Which Division Has The Most Super Bowl Wins?
It should not be forgotten that since the first Super Bowl in 1967, the NFC East division has been the most successful division in the NFL.
A total of 21 NFC championships have been won by the NFC East, which has contributed to 13 Super Bowl victories, making it one of the most successful divisions in the league.
The Dallas Cowboys have won five of their last six games to lead the division. There are two teams that are close behind them, the New York Giants with four victories and the Washington Commanders with three wins before the Cowboys gained a slight advantage.
Carson Wentz, who suffered an ACL tear last season, led the Philadelphia Eagles to victory in Super Bowl LI in 2017, which was the first time an NFC East team had won the game. They were led by backup NFL quarterback Nick Foles after Wentz went down with an injury.
