Super Bowl FAQs

How much do the Super Bowl winners get paid?

The players on the winning team of the Super Bowl receive a bonus check for $150,000. Or, as we like to say, a check good for one bottle of the most expensive champagne that night during the victory party.

Who were the last 10 Super Bowl winners?

The last 10 teams to win the super bowl are:

  1. Los Angeles Rams (2022)
  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021)
  3. Kansas City Chiefs (2020)
  4. New England Patriots (2019)
  5. Philadelphia Eagles (2018)

  8. New England Patriots (2015)

  10. Baltimore Ravens (2013)

Why do Super Bowl winners go to Disney?

Disney started this marketing campaign in 1987, with winning QB of the New York Giants, Phil Simms stating, "I'm going to Disneyland!"

The entertainment conglomerate shells out oodles of cash every year to keep the streak alive, something that almost didn't happen in 2008 when the Colts won because TV Cameraman, Mark Allan had some trouble, stating that light was, "... shining right between Dungy and Rhodes right down the barrel of my lens, hitting the fog and flaring everything up."

Another TV crew got the shot though and all was saved.

When is the parade for Super Bowl winners?

The parade for the Super Bowl winners usually occurs within 2-5 days of the team returning home from the game's venue and host city.

However, it should be noted that the Tampa Bay Bucs, who hosted and won Super Bowl LV and the Los Angeles Rams, who hosted and won Super Bowl LVI, still had the same 2-5 day turnover time to help the city prep for the festivities.

Though I'm not sure any amount of prepping prepared the nation for drunk Tom Brady tossing the trophy from boat to boat.

What is the name of the Super Bowl trophy?

The Vince Lombardi Trophy. The trophy is named after the legendary head coach of the Green Bay Packers. He was the winning coach of the very first Super Bowl in 1967.

What is the name of the Super Bowl MVP trophy?

The Pete Rozelle Trophy.

Who was the last Super Bowl MVP?

Cooper Kupp was the most recent recipient of the Super Bowl MVP award for his outstanding play at Wide Receiver. Without Cooper Kupp, there is virtually zero chance that the Rams beat the Bengals. He was the best player in the league this year, performing far superior to everyone, including actual MVP, Aaron Rodgers.

What does the Super Bowl MVP get?

For Cooper Kupp's efforts, he receives a brand new car to go along with his fun, new expensive trophy. This is standard for all Super Bowl MVPs.

Who has won the most Super Bowl MVP awards?

Tom Brady has won the Pete Rozelle award 5 times in his career. Four with the N.E. Patriots and once with the Bucs. Joe Montana is next with 3 SB MVP awards to his credit, all with the 49ers.

How many Heisman trophy winners have won the Super Bowl?

There have been 10 Heisman trophy winners who have earned a Super Bowl ring. The Heisman trophy is given to the best player in college football.

Which college has the most Super Bowl winners?

The University of Southern California has produced 48 players that have gone on to win a Super Bowl. Second is the University of Miami, which is tied with both the University of Tennessee, as well as the University of Notre Dame, producing 44 apiece. Then there is Penn State with 43 players.

Michigan is up next with 39, and quite frankly, they should just be awarded a few extra for the fact that TB12 has played 2-3 careers.

How are the NFL schedules made for the Super Bowl winners the following season?

The NFL, "typically schedules the Super Bowl champion at home for the Thursday night game that kicks off the new season."

That could be coming to a screeching halt in the Fall of 2022 as Amazon, the Thursday Night Game rights-holder, is asking for league-darling Patrick Mahomes to be featured in the opening game of the season.

Does Defensive Ranking matter for winning the Super Bowl?

According to The Guardian, "Among the 49 NFL Super Bowls, the better defensive team, measured by points allowed that season, has won 30 times." That would suggest that Defensive Ranking does matter.

However, also from The Guardian, "The better offensive team has won 25 times." In the end, it's debatable.

Who were the 15 Medal of Honor winners at the 2018 Super Bowl?

  1. Allan Kellogg: Marines, Vietnam (awarded 10/15/1973)
  2. Bennie Adkins: Army, Vietnam (award delayed 9/15/2014)

In the end, the Eagles held on for a 41-33 victory.

What does the President do for Super Bowl winners?

How accurate is Google for picking the winner of the game?

We're not exactly sure how accurate Google is in predicting the game, but we do know that Madden NFL 22, a video game made by Electronic Arts, got really, really close to picking the exact score of the most recent Bengals/Rams Super Bowl.

According to ScreenRant, "... This realism extends to EA's yearly Madden NFL Super Bowl simulation, with the big game prediction reportedly achieving 61% accuracy since its inception."

The game predicted that the Bengals would win with a score of 24-21. It picked the wrong victor, but the points were almost there.

Which team has won the most Super Bowls?

There is a two-way tie for the most championships in the NFL, with the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers each having won Super Bowl. The former occurred in recent years with Tom Brady as QB, whereas the latter happened in the 70s with Terry Bradshaw as the QB.

Harvey Martin, a DE, and Randy White, a DT of the Dallas Cowboys won Co-MVP honors in Super Bowl XII.

It started out switching between CBS and NBC for years. Then ABC got involved. Then CBS. Then Fox.

Crazy story though, both CBS and NBC broadcast the first game with the Packers and Chiefs.

What percentage of teams don't make it back to the Super Bowl the next year?

It's small enough that only 3 teams who have lost the Super Bowl have returned the next year to win: 1971 Cowboys, 1972 Dolphins and the 2018 Patriots.

How many overtime games have been played?

Only one overtime game has been played in the history of the Super Bowl. In that game, the New England Patriots, led by Tom Brady, came back to defeat the Atlanta Falcons from a late game score of 28-3. If there were any doubts prior to this game as to who the best QB ever was, they were erased at the moment that James White crossed the goal line in overtime to secure the victory.

Of course, the G.O.A.T. would then go on to appear in 3 more Super Bowls, winning two of them. Just because.

Which team holds the record for most consecutive appearances?

The Buffalo Bills of the early 1990s hold the record for the most consecutive appearances in the big game. Unfortunately, they lost every single game, going 0-4. Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and crew just couldn't seem to find a way to defeat the Giants, Redskins and Cowboys (twice).

There were big hopes for 2021's Bills squad, but unfortunately they lost in OT to the Kansas City Chiefs. They in turn lost to Joe Burrow's Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship a week later.

Who played in the first Super Bowl?

Green Bay defeated the Kansas City Chiefs with a score of 35-10 in the very first Super Bowl, held in Los Angeles in 1967. Bart Starr was the QB for the Packers and Vince Lombardi was the coach.
