NFC East Is NFL’s Beast

Historically, what’s the best division in the NFL?  If you use Super Bowl titles as the ultimate criteria, then it’s the NFC East, hands down.

NFC East teams have won 11 of the 42 Super Bowl championships; no other division in the NFL has won more than six.

Here are the standings by division:

NFC East — 11 (Cowboys 5, Giants 3, Redskins 3)
NFC West — 6 (49ers 5, Rams)
AFC East — 6 (Patriots 3, Dolphins 2, Jets)
AFC North — 6 (Steelers 5, Ravens)
AFC West — 6 (Raiders 3, Broncos 2, Chiefs)
NFC North — 4 (Packers 3, Bears)
AFC South–  2 (Colts 2)
NFC South — 1 (Bucs)

Three teams — Cowboys, Steelers and 49ers — have won five Super Bowls apiece.

Surprisingly, in a world of parity, 15 teams, nearly half of the NFL’s 32, have yet to win a Super Bowl.

In fact six teams — Texans, Jaguars, Browns, Saints, Lions and Cardinals — have never even made it to Super Sunday.
